With so much focus on the face when it comes to pro-aging skin care, it can be easy to simply overlook or forget about other key areas of skin, such as your hands and décolleté.
Including these key areas in your daily skincare routine is oh-so-easy to do though, and it makes such a huge difference in how you feel and look on a daily basis.
Premature signs of aging such as discoloration, texture, and thinning of skin, tend to show up on the hands, throat, and neckline just like they can on your face– and yet these areas are often skipped over.
Use these quick, simple tips to spread the love around and make sure your hands, throat, and neckline are getting all the attention and care they deserve.
You love how your exfoliants keep your facial skin glowing and improve it's texture.
Exfoliate your hands, throat, and chest too.
One pump for your face.
One pump for your neck and chest.
One pump for both hands.
Take that serum you apply so lovingly to your face on down to your beautiful neck, and chest area too. And hands. Of course. Hands.

Your final step is to apply a moisturizing sunscreen, preferably water resistant on your hands.
Reapply during the day.
Carry a small tube in your purse.
I like to keep sunscreen handy next to her sink so that I can easily re-apply it throughout the day after washing my hands, or even just as a simple reminder as needed!
Making sure to apply sunscreen to throughout the day is one of the biggest ways to prevent skin damage, discoloration, and premature aging.
