While we apply SPF foundations, suncream, specialist moisturisers, serums, sun hats and shades to our faces to protect against ageing — why do we leave out the rest of our bodies?
While the wrinkles around our eyes might be the first to show, our bodies aren’t far behind, with changes in shape, skin texture and general health following closely.
The shop shelves are groaning under the weight of cosmeceutical products which all promise younger looking faces, firmed eye areas and smoother skin. Many of us know to cover up in the sun, and apply suncream on our faces throughout the year.
But not many of us apply the same care and attention to our arms, legs and torsos.
As Byrdie says, your skin is your largest organ, and it’s literally a sponge. It soaks up everything—the good and the bad. That means free radicals, pollution, the sun’s damaging, and more are all affecting your skin day after day. Which is why you spend so much time and energy devoted to skincare, right? But chances are you’re spending 95% of your anti-ageing efforts on just 5% of your skin (aka your face). Which isn’t exactly a good long-term plan.
