Anti-Aging Body Skin Care

Dermatologist’s recommendations for the best anti-aging body skin care.

Many of the skin changes you think are part of aging can be easily treated with the right skin care. Aging skin can become thin, crepey, scaly, dry and covered with brown age spots. This can all be improved with your at home care!

What are the best body moisturizer to help aging skin on the body, arms, legs and hands?

Body skin becomes dry with age. Especially skin on your arms, legs, hands and feet. Use moisturizers that are rich. If you have hairy skin, use hydrating moisturizers that spread nicely through body hair. Always moisturizer your arms, legs and hands after every shower. Apply your moisturizer within the magic 3 minutes after toweling dry to trap water your skin soaked up while you bathed.

Use hypoallergenic moisturizers because the expanse of your body’s skin is huge. Fragrance and some preservatives can cause lifelong skin allergies – so avoid them. All my moisturizers are hypoallergenic by dermatologist’s standards. They are also deeply hydrating. For the body, my Natural Lotion is easy to use and rubs into hairy skin well. It’s my husband’s favorite. My Natural Body Butter Cream is slightly thicker and richer, but both work well. Both are made with organic botanical oils rich in vitamins, antioxidants and deeply hydrating ingredients.

What are the best creams and home treatments to help fight the signs of skin aging on your arms and leg skin?

First you need to understand what happens to your skin that makes it look old.

Reasons why your arm and leg skin look old - and how to fix them.

  1. Crepey skin
  2. Age spots including liver spots (solar lentigines) and barnacles (seborrheic keratosis)
  3. Thin skin
  4. Scaly and dry skin

Simple 3 step at-home skin care routine to make your arm and leg skin look younger.

  1. Use a professional, high concentration glycolic acid lotion at least twice a week after the bath or shower. Moisturize the other days you shower with a rich, hypoallergenic moisturizer like those mentioned above.
  2. Exfoliate your arm, leg and hand skin in the shower at least twice a week. Use an exfoliating shower cloth, sponge or mitt with an exfoliating body wash that has ingredients such as glycolic acid (an AHA) and salicylic acid (a BHA). The other days of the week use a hypoallergenic shower gel or soap. You can use the exfoliating shower cloth, sponge or mitt with this too.
  3. Sun protect your exposed skin every day. Did you know that most of the skin thinning and age spots are due to the sun? It’s true. Use clothing and broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen (water resistant if you sweat or wash your hands often) to keep UV rays off your skin.

Reasons why your hands look old.

  • Crepey skin
  • Age spots,
  • Scaly skin,
  • Thin skin
  • Yellow, ridged and chipped nails

6 ways to make your hands look younger:

  1. Wear gloves when outside in the sun, when doing harsh house work or working with skin-drying chemicals. Use hypoallergenic and gentle home cleaning products.
  2. Use a mild hand soap for routine hand washing. Be sure to rinse it all off completely because retained soap residue will pull out precious hand skin lipids necessary for young looking skin. My hypoallergenic and gentle Natural Foaming Liquid Hand Soap is ideal and rinses off easily. 
  3. Apply a rich hand cream after washing your hands to prevent scaly rough skin and to help the skin stay supple. My Dry Skin Hand Cream  or Natural Lotion  are ideal and convenient.
  4. Use glycolic acid moisturizer after exfoliating twice a week at least. My Ultra-Fast Body Smoothing Triple Action Kit is ideal.
  5. Always apply a water resistant broad spectrum sunscreen to the back of your hands and fingers first thing in the morning. Reapply it mid-day and after washing your hands or doing wet work. Try not to wash sunscreen off of the back of your hands if possible.
  6. Treat your nails to some TLC; If your nails are yellow, ridged and chipped, soak your nails in warm water then file or buff the top and edges of your nails to remove yellowing. This will also help to smooth the surface and reduce the chipped layers. Apply glycolic acid cream to your nails after washing your hands. This will help to fade some causes of the yellow staining. Apply Bag Balm at night to help hydrate nails.

Stubborn brown liver spots may respond to twice daily skin lightening treatments such as my Pigment Fading Pads. At night, consider using my Retinol Anti-Wrinkle Cream . If you have tolerant skin, you can alternate this with Glycolic Acid Lotion or even apply the Glycolic Lotion on top of the Retinol (watch for irritatation and go slowly).

Why does the bottom of your feet get rough and thick with age?

Fungus can cause scale on the bottom of the feet, but so can age. Women are prone to this after menopause. Use strong glycolic acid creams to help dissolve the thickened rough skin. File it off with a collection of good foot files. My Soft and Smooth Feet - Rough Skin Remover Kit  does the trick. .

What is the best body cream for wrinkled arms?

It’s glycolic acid. This alpha hydroxy acid will stimulate your arm skin’s production of hyaluronic acid to help create a suppler appearance and feel to your skin. It also brightens and smooths skin, lightens age spots and can even stimulate collagen renewal. Wear sunscreen or clothing during the day to prevent UV ray skin thinning. My Ultra-Fast Body Smoothing Triple Action Kit plus one of my sunscreens is a highly effective combination for treating wrinkled arm skin.

Remember, Complete Skin Care gets the best results for fighting the signs of aging on your body skin. Dr. Bailey Complete Skin Care includes the 4 essential steps,

  1. Cleanse
  2. Correct
  3. Hydrate
  4. Protect

CLEANSE Skin using only hypoallergenic, gentle soaps and cleansers, such as my Naturally Best Bar Soap, Natural Shower Gel or VaniSoap. For crusty age spots and excessive roughness or scale, exfoliate and add Triple Action Exfoliating Cleanser with a Salux Cloth. For hands, use one of my hypoallergenic and gentle Foaming Hand Soaps.

CORRECT skin problems like crepey skin and age spots with my Glycolic Acid Body Lotion. I’ve put my all-time favorite skin routine products for aging skin into my Ultra-Fast Body Smoothing Kits. I have one that is pure glycolic acid and another with my Triple Action Exfoliation Scrub that has AHA and BHA in a lovely foaming cleanser.

HYDRATE all areas prone to dryness and crepey skin with one of my moisturizers. Ideally use my Ultra-Fast Body Smoothing Kit twice a week and one of my hypoallergenic moisturizers the other days that you shower. Apply a hand cream after washing your hands.

PROTECT your precious skin using a broad spectrum mineral zinc sunscreens 365 days a year, applying to all exposed skin. Sun causes thinning and fragility that always get worse with further UV exposure. Prevent it for the healthiest arm, leg, hand and body skin as you age. Don’t forget the scalp when it comes to sun protection. My Sheer Strength Pure Mineral Spray Sunscreen is ideal for hairy areas of skin such as the part line or a balding scalp.

See my products below and build your complete skin care routine based on which skin problems you have or to which you are prone. Get amazing results with a complete skin care routine built from only the best ingredients, proven effective by thousands of my patients – and on my own aging skin, too. The good news is that although we are getting older, we can effectively treat and pamper our skin with a little TLC!
