Natural ways to repair ageing skin on your neck, chest and hands

- April 18, 2018 -

If you worshipped the sun when you were in your 20’s—like most of us did—chances are you may be paying for it in unexpected ways now.

There are the obvious ways that photoaging and sun damage take a toll on your appearance: wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots on your face. But what about the rest of you?

Some of the least-talked-about and most concerning areas where UVA/UVB damage becomes apparent are on the neck, chest, and hands. What makes these areas tell-tale giveaways of our age? How do we prevent, reverse, and repair that damage to the aging skin on our neck, chest, and hands?

There isn’t one be-all, end-all anti-aging solution for repairing aging skin, but there are some scientifically-backed solutions that work both inside and out for the best anti-aging results all around.


The Problem: Rough, Dry Skin

Why does it happen?

Before you can find a solution to your problem, you have to first understand why it’s happening. As for rough, dry skin on your hands, neck, and chest, it begins with sun damage—as with most aging skin issues. The damaging UVA/UVB rays penetrate deep into the skin and break down collagen and elastin within it that are keeping your skin youthful, hydrated, and smooth.

How do you prevent it?

As with most aging skin issues—especially those that affect the delicate skin on your hands, neck, and chest—the simple preventative solution is to use at least SPF 30 sunscreen. It only takes 10 minutes of sun exposure to inflict lasting damage. And, if you’re worried that it might be too late to prevent sun damage, you’re never too late to start taking care of your skin.

How do you repair it?

On a daily basis, you can try introducing a topical anti-aging Facial Oil, which should help to gradually reduce the appearance and feel of rough, dry skin.

More long-term solutions include proper nutrition, a balanced diet, and anti-aging dietary supplements, such as Lumity, which help encourage the skin to repair itself from the inside out.


The Problem: Brown Spots or Age Spots

Why does it happen?

Your skin is truly amazing. As a way of protecting itself from the damaging rays of the sun, your skin naturally produces melanin (the substance that gives you that gorgeous, tanned glow during the summer). Over time, though, that melanin production can end up leaving you with permanent, blotchy brown spots, also known as age spots.

How do you prevent it?

To prevent age spots, it’s always best to wear SPF 30+. But, to take it a step further, you can always incorporate a chic hat that’s appropriate for whatever setting you find yourself in. Nothing says “glamorous movie star” quite like a wide-brimmed hat and some oversized sunglasses while lounging by the pool. You may just be mistaken for Audrey herself—all while you’re just taking care of the delicate skin on your neck and chest. As for your hands? Look for a moisturizing lotion that contains SPF and keep it by your side at all times.

How do you repair it?

As with most aging skin issues, there are internal measures that can also be taken to reduce the appearance of brown spots. Several of the ingredients within Lumity may help to reverse and prevent further discoloration through nourishing your body on the cellular level.


The Problem: Lines and Wrinkles

Why does it happen?

There are actually two major causes of the lines and wrinkles that appear on your neck, chest, and hands. You know the ones that incidentally show up when you’ve slept on your side? They happen to just about everyone at one point or another, and while they would likely appear regardless, sun damage certainly encourages them to appear sooner. Free radicals from the sun, oxidative damage, glycation, and other sources can accelerate the processes that lead to those wrinkles and lines by damaging collagen and elastin.

How do you prevent it?

Because there are so many factors involved in causing wrinkles and lines on your neck, hands, and chest, you can go about preventing them in several ways. For one, you can limit your exposure to the sun, and when you absolutely have to be out and about, make sure you’ve got sunscreen handy.

Another factor you can control is your exposure to toxic environmental elements, such as cigarette smoke. Even second-hand smoke can cause premature aging skin, so be conscious of the amount of smoke you allow yourself to be around. Whenever possible, opt for non-smoking areas at restaurants and non-smoking rooms in hotels.

As for the role that glycation plays in wrinkles and lines on your chest, neck, and hands, it’s best to avoid foods that contain refined sugar in them. You may consider adding an anti-aging supplement like Lumity to your beauty toolkit.

Lumity contains alanine, l-carnitine, and l-cysteine to help block glycation and maintain a healthy level of collagen and elastin in your skin.

How do you repair it?

Topical solutions for wrinkles vary greatly, but here at Lumity we believe that nature knows best. Our Facial oil is 100% all natural with 32 of nature’s most healing botanicals.

Internally speaking, the body uses antioxidants to neutralize free radicals. Antioxidants transfer an electron to the free radicals, thus stabilizing them and making them ready for elimination. When you take anti-aging supplements that contain targeted and proportioned antioxidants, like Lumity, you help increase your body’s ability to fend off free radicals and repair the damage caused by them.

Your face may get all of the love when it comes to anti-aging prevention and repair, but it’s your hands, neck, and chest that really tell your story. Luckily, there are intrinsic and extrinsic solutions for helping you maintain and regain your youthful glow all over.
