Skincare Tips to Care for the Neglected Areas of Your Body

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

We are all guilty of this. We cleanse and exfoliate regularly, and slather the most expensive skincare products on our face and neck because they are always our top priority. But what about other areas of the body? Those areas that we conveniently skip or ignore, don’t they deserve some TLC too?

Before we start regretting our bad skincare decisions, here are some skin care tips to adhere to, from your underarms right down to your toes.


1. Décolletage

Skincare shouldn’t stop at the neck. As necklines get lower and wider, it is important to gently exfoliate and moisturize our décolletage too. You don’t want to see smooth and dewy skin on your face and contrasting dull and rough skin on your décolletage, right? It is not that much of a chore, really. Whatever you are using on your face (including exfoliating facial scrubs in the shower), extend it downwards to your décolletage too.


2. Underarms

Underarms were shaved and waxed and pretty much ignored and hidden from sight. While there are many causes of underarms darkening, one of the reasons is the buildup of dead skin cells. Therefore, it is important to do gentle exfoliation and keep them lightly moisturized. If you moisturize your legs after shaving, why wouldn’t you do the same for your armpits, right?


3. Back

I know, how to care for it when we can’t even see it? Unless you belong to the national gymnastics team, most of us can’t even reach all areas on our back. However, that is no excuse to neglect our skincare on our back because we still want to put on our sexy backless dress.

Avoid over scrubbing as that may result in acne (or we call them bacne) outbreaks on your back. Stick to gentle exfoliating and keep them lightly moisturized. Simple steps and that you give you a smooth and glowing back.


4. Elbows and knees

Are your elbows and knee caps looking dry and dark? That’s evidence to show that you need to give them some extra love. Moisturize and moisturize. And don’t forget to give them a good scrub at least once a week.


5. Feet

Our feet should take the throne for the most neglected part of our body. Besides the usual scrub and moisturizing, use a pumice stone to get rid of those calluses, and use a strong moisturizer that is especially for cracked heels to pamper your feet. Regular foot massages and pedicures are welcomed too!

To makeup or not to makeup? That's the question many of us debate about before we board the plane. Well, while some of us want to go makeup-free and be comfortable on flight, there are those of us who still want to dab on some powder to look a little more radiant.

Shades include Pyrite (gold-champagne), Oasis (marbled frosted taupe) and Twilight (iridescent pink), and we are expecting them to work beautifully with all skin tones.

The bad news is that they are still not in stores yet. We may need to wait a little longer till nearer the holiday season. I am keeping a lookout for this for sure.

Straight brows, gradient lips, and glowing skin. K-Beauty has reigned the beauty industry for quite a while and we are expecting it to stay for much longer.

Whether you realized it or not, some of our most popular beauty products come from Korea. The beauty hot spot churns out so many innovative products every year that it's hard to keep up, and we are always looking forward to the next big thing, just like how the BB creams and cushion foundations took over the world.

If you are still not aware, the next up and coming K-beauty product is none other than the shimmer creams. This may still be something really new on our shores but we are guessing that it is here to stay. Shimmer creams are either used alone or together with your foundation to create the much-coveted glow on our skin.

But no matter what, good skin is still the base for beautiful makeup. It should be the flawless starting point for your makeup, as makeup will apply better on good skin. A good skincare regime is therefore important to keep our skin hydrated and fine lines at bay. However, age and exposure to the everyday environmental elements take a toll on our skin and more often than not, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles start appearing by the time we pass our mid-twenties, and we need more than skincare to keep our skin glowing and firm.
