Body Parts that Give Away Your Age

You’ve taken great care of your face. You use sunblock, moisturizer, your skin is healthy and glowing, but you still don’t look or feel youthful. Why? Well, while you’ve protected your face, you’ve neglected other important body parts that are also a great reflection of your age.

Though you’ve washed that gray out of your hair, the texture is coarse and reflects the years of sun exposure, color, straightening or curling it. Getting deep conditioning treatments will help keep it healthy and strong.

Your hands may show your age as well; the scaly skin and age spots are impossible to hide. The skin on your hands is thinner than most of your body, so keeping it moisturized and protected from the sun is the key to youthful skin.

Like your hands, your neck is also made up of thin skin. To avoid UV damage, sagging, pulling and wrinkling, apply the same strict skin regimen you use on your face on your neck.

Your elbows, knees and feet should also be kept well moisturized. Keeping these body parts healthy looking will go a long way to keeping a youthful appearance.

At some point, you may decide that you want take more drastic measures to slow the aging process. Cosmetic surgery can be a viable option to change some of the damage that time has done to your skin and body. If you have considered cosmetic surgery, contacting Dr. Van Putten to schedule a consultation is the first step to rejuvenation.
