How to Anti-Age Your Body

As we age our bodies change, and guess what? That’s perfectly normal. But if you want to slow-down the formation of wrinkles, new textures and colours, here’s what you can do.

Practicing a daily massage or face yoga can help target a sagging neck by firming the muscles and lifting the skin – there are handy videos online that can teach you the tricks of the trade. Add to that a skin care routine that’s been formulated to tighten (like Ultimate Lift by NovAge) and you’ll be closer to the swan-neck that you’re after.

Covering-up this delicate skin with a higher neckline is the best way to protect your chest from sun damage - the second best thing you can do is to wear SPF. Try extending your morning skin care routine below your jaw line to hydrate and deliver anti-ageing ingredients to your décolleté.

As you sleep, your skin restores and replenishes itself, which can be supported with a rich night cream. If you have a lot of freckles or age spots on your chest, take the opportunity to use a skin brightening treatment here, like NovAge Bright Sublime.

Your hands spend a lot of time unprotected in the sun, which is why they may be showing signs of ageing faster than the skin elsewhere on your body. Wearing a hand cream that contains SPF will protect skin and prevent discolouration and wrinkles. Look for a product that uses vitamins A, C or E to nourish, tighten and brighten.

As we age, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and sag – thighs, tummy and arms are typical problem areas. The truth is this: over time it’s inevitable that our bodies will change – and that’s ok. Regular exercise that tones the muscles beneath our skin, a diet that’s full of vegetables and fruit, and drinking lots of water will help keep our bodies looking their best. And if you want some extra help from the beauty industry, look for a product that contains caffeine.
