Summer has officially started, which means we are spending more time in swimsuits and shorts. This translates to probably showing more of our bodies, and for many of us that also means feeling more self-conscious – especially as we age. Over time, we experience breakdowns in collagen and elastin in the skin on both our face and body. And as the aging process occurs, skin loses its firmness, and we become more prone to the appearance of saggy skin and increased signs of cellulite.
While many people invest in good facial skincare products, they tend to overlook the importance of taking care of the skin on the rest of their body. Your body doesn’t just age from the jawline up! It’s also imperative that you include quality anti-aging product that helps combat the signs of aging on your body to your skincare regimen.
A friend introduced me to a particular anti-aging skincare product for the body that I feel offers a number of age-fighting benefits – Nerium’s Firming Body Contour Cream. After a few weeks of use, I noticed the product helped to sculpt and tighten the skin. I was especially impressed with the results on the neck and décolletage area. But, no matter where you put this cream on your body, it’s actually going to help enhance a youthful appearance, versus just putting it on areas that are prone to cellulite. I have seen results on the upper arms, thighs, stomach and love handles.
The Firming Body Contour Cream includes skin-benefiting ingredients like forskohlii root, nutrient-rich aloe leaf juice and white willow bark extract to help tone skin, as well as powerful antioxidants and super moisturizing ingredients like shea and cocoa butters to hydrate and soften the skin. I highly recommend this effective formula to my clients as it addresses multiple issues at once – Nerium’s Firming Body Contour Cream will help ensure you’ll be ready for summer with a beach body you can be proud of at any age.
