What’s wrong with this picture . . . when the chest and the hands are looking decades older than the face?
If you hang out with snooty fashion editors (as we do), you’re well aware that one of the most serious sartorial faux pas – and profound putdown to boot – is ‘matchy, matchy’. Essentially this speaks to trying too hard with the color coordination (nails and lips, bag and shoes etc.). Arbitrary, yes, but nonetheless a thing.
We, however, are beauty people. And this means we like every part of the skin to match itself. But located in Southern California, the rejuvenation capitol of the world, we frequently see faces that look twenty years younger than hands and chests. What gives? The complexion looks smooth and creamy while the hands and chest are mottled, lined and leathery. The reasons for this are many fold:
This doesn’t mean that rejuvenating the skin on your chest and your hands is impossible by any means but it will require commitment. First, bump up the preventative measures and slather on the sunscreen and rethink low cut necklines when the sun shines bright. Then for skincare, perhaps use a antioxidant serum on the chest and the hands. Finally, in the technical professional realm, lower energy treatments and more repetitions will be necessary to achieve the same smoothing, luminous results you can get with a single treatment on the face.
