1. L’Occitane Almond Velvet Hands SPF15

Did you know that along with the eyes and neck, our hands are one of the first areas to start showing signs of ageing? As we age, our hands lose fat and the skin on the hands loses elasticity. This resultant translucent skin tends to develop fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, which is why our hands need a good dose of moisturisation and SPF just as much as our faces do. Opt for a product like the Almond Velvet Hands by L’Occitane, which is enriched with almond proteins and UV filters. This rich yet silky and velvety hand cream helps to protect the youthfulness of your hands and prevent sun damage.

2. e.l.f. Cosmetics Lip Exfoliator

Gently exfoliate the lips with this handy lip product, at home or on the go. Infused with vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, grape and jojoba oils it also nourishes and protects the delicate skin on the lips.

7. Dr. Barbara Sturm Body Brush

While dry brushing may sound like a recent trend, the ritual dates back to ancient times and is prescribed in Ayurvedic medicine as well as in other cultures such as the Greeks, Egyptians and Japanese. Dry body brushing twice a week for five minutes before taking a shower is known to help exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, encourage cell turnover, improve blood circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Simply start at the feet, using short strokes towards the direction of your heart and continue to the knees, hips, bum, hands and shoulders to reap all these benefits.
