Q. Most anti-aging products seem to be for the face and neck. The small bottles don’t last long, even when they’re used on just these small areas—and they’re expensive. But the rest of my body is aging too! What can I use on my arms/elbow and the rest of my body (that won’t cost a fortune!) to address dryness?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Great question! We do tend to forget to provide the rest of our skin the TLC it needs for anti-aging benefits. Here are my tips for youthful skin from head to toe.
The first thing you want to do is exfoliate all over the body. I recommend our Fruit Enzyme Scrub. A little of this product goes a long way (just enough to fill your palm is perfect for all over the body). Gentle jojoba beads and bamboo stem powder slough away dead skin cells while increasing cellular turnover. Use 2-3 times per week in the shower on your face, body, arms, and even feet!
Now slather on the MyChelle Body Ambrosia, a rich luxurious body cream that nourishes and softens dry, flaking skin. A blend of shea butter and antioxidant-rich olive and pumpkin seed oils replenish lost moisture. Retinol smoothes away rough spots and promotes collagen formation.
