De-age below the neck.

When Jennifer Lopez confessed she slathered Creme de la Mer face cream all over her body, skin care marketers listened ... La Mer's The Body Creme was born.

imageBody treatment products have become more decadent and results-oriented. Once a company establishes a 'perfect' high-performance face product the natural progression is to extend the product to below the neck care. MD Skin Care by Dr. Dennis Gross was one of the first to launch a body peel, Alpha Beta Daily Body Peel, after the success of its Daily Face Peel. Juice Beauty mirrored its Green Apple Body Peel after editors raved about the 'glowing' benefits of the face peel. Skin-guru Sonya Dakar developed an allover version of her omega face serum and now the celebrity scene can't get enough of her body potions.

These body care products now boost age defying ingredients that are antioxidant-fighting, omega-rich, pigment and sun spot diffusing and potent fruit acids that get skin radiant looking.

Here's a look at high-performance products that will keep your body ageless:

imageA 'grand' launch gearing up for its debut is Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Body Serum. Boots too looked below the neck to this need. Mirrored after its prize winner, Protect & Perfect (known as Restore & Renew sold in the U.S.) and the only proven wrinkle fighter, it contains the same formulation as the face serum and helps perfect skin's surface, restoring its youthful radiance.
