Isn't it comical how we adopt 15-step facial regimens with ease, but continually neglect the skin on the rest of our body? Showing care to all of our skin is essential for delaying the arrival of thinning, crepiness, and sun damage on areas such as the arms, legs, and stomach. With that being said, if you're past the point of prevention and have begun to see these concerns appear in places you thought not possible, it's not too late to expand your regimen.

There's regular body cream, and then there's Dermelect's Lipo Conquer Body Toning Cream. Made purely for the body, the fast-acting treatment targets areas that have experienced a significant loss of elasticity, such as the arms, thighs, butt, and love handles. In addition to tightening and firming the skin, the cream also improves the look of cellulite and stretch marks over time. It leans on four key natural ingredients to get the job done right: ginkgo biloba, a detoxifying antioxidant, replenishes moisture on dry areas; caffeine rejuvenates dimpling skin and reduces puffiness; vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin E boost collagen production and smooth over existing fine lines.

While the cream is fairly new to Dermelect's line-up of age-defying formulas, it's already garnered praise from shoppers who claim it "lives up to its promises." One reviewer wrote that it absorbs into the skin "super quickly", doesn't leave behind a greasy residue like other body creams, and "smells amazing," while another shared that it's "the one product of its kind that seems to work" for them.
And according to even more reviewers, you won't have to wait long for results. "This product changed my life," said one. "I used it on my arms initially and within a week I began to notice the crepey cellulite look was diminishing! After a few weeks it was all but gone! I'm now using [it on] my stomach and tush!"
"I am using this product on my thighs, which have mild puckering from cellulite. I noticed a difference probably within a week," said a second. "Continued use is necessary to maintain effects, but I use it once a day only, and sometimes skip a day, and my legs still look much better and younger. I am on my second jar of this cream and strongly recommend it."
There's no need to craft a multi-step body skincare regimen — using at least one stellar product to nourish and replenish your skin on a daily basis will go a long way. You know what to do.
