Why You Need to Start Anti-Aging Skincare On Your Bum
We're forever being told about the importance of following an anti-aging skincare routine for our face, but what about the rest of our body -- like our butt, for instance?
Just because your booty's out of view doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a little TLC every now and then, or better yet: a beauty routine of its own.
Here's why you need to start an anti-aging skincare regimen for your butt -- and the best skincare products designed especially for your derriere.
Here's Why You Need to Stop Abandoning Your Bum
Why should the cheeks on your face get all the love when you've got a booty that's craving some affection?
Just like the skin on your face, your bum (and the rest of your body for that matter -- yes, we're looking at you boobs!) -- deserves a skincare routine that goes beyond a quick wash in the shower. Just like the rest of your skin, your butt and boobs also experience dryness and show signs of aging, including fine lines, discoloration, and sagging. And that's exactly why they need your attention.
If you'd like to give your bum a little boost in lift, smoothness, and texture, you'll be happy to hear there are beauty products out there targeted at enhancing your booty's overall appearance.

How Retinol Can Help
Vitamin A, otherwise known as retinol is a gold standard in anti-aging products. It literally works on *every* part of your body to help skin sagging, fine lines, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.
"As retinol binds to retinoid receptors on the skin, it enhances cell turnover and stimulates collagen production,” says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. This thickens the skin and enhances its ability to retain water, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Using a topical retinol product as part of your regular skincare routine can also help to minimize discoloration and improve skin texture. It's by far one of the best anti-aging products out there for reversing skin aging and promoting radiant, healthy skin.
In addition to its anti-aging effects, the derms say that this active ingredient may also improve the appearance of stretch marks, thanks to its ability to support collagen production.
Don't Forget Sun Protection!
Why do you need sun protection when your bum's hiding in jeans or leggings all day long? In this case, you probably don't. However, you'll certainly need a generous layer of sunscreen when heading out to the beach. Apply it whenever you plan on getting sun exposure.
Your chest area will need more protection since it's more exposed in V-neck sweaters or low cut shirts.
For optimum UVA and UVB protection, apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to the exposed area 20-30 minutes before leaving your house. Opt for SPF 30 or higher to protect skin from sun damage and the potential consequences that follow -- loss of elastin, dry skin, skin cancer.
A Bum Skincare Routine to Try
Want your best bum? Try this skincare routine for a smooth, plump, baby-soft butt.
If you’re looking to brighten, smooth, and soften the skin on your backside, make exfoliation part of your regular routine. Look for a product formulated with antioxidants and exfoliating ingredients like jojoba seeds, natural sugar, or glycolic acid.
Those exfoliating ingredients can improve skin texture, fight dullness, and slow down the aging process.
By sloughing away dead skin cells, you'll allow the anti-aging ingredients in your lotions and potions to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.
Now that your skin is prepped and ready to absorb whatever comes on top, slather your booty in a serum designed to treat skin issues like creases, hyperpigmentation, sagging, cellulite, and stretch marks.
Truly's Buns of Glowry Serum uses the powers of vitamin E, watermelon, retinol, orange flower, and wheat protein to boost skin elasticity, fight hyperpigmentation, and smooth out dimply skin.
Acai Your Boobies Serum works just as well at elevating boob skin health thanks to its high-performing blend of retinol, acai, apricot, and dragon fruit. These ingredients work together to fight free radicals and deeply condition the skin, in turn reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These products are clinically proven to smooth, tighten, firm, and brighten skin on the butt and breasts.
Now it's time to seal in the moisture with a hydrating anti-aging cream, lotion, or butter.
When the skin is more hydrated, it generally looks plumper and less dimpled. For a softer, smoother bum, look for products with ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, hyaluronic acids, or ceramides.
Our Buns of Glowry Tighten & Glow Butt Butter relies on three key ingredients -- wheat protein, watermelon, and shea butter -- to firm, smooth, and hydrate skin. It'll make skin look smoother in as little as four weeks.
Acai Your Boobies Butter utilizes retinol for its line-fading effects and acai berry for its free radical-fighting properties to repair damaged skin, delay signs of aging, and replenish lost moisture.
Tone your bum with Truly's Anti-Cellulite Body Mask. This powerful toning moisturizer blurs the appearance of dimpled skin while wiping out wrinkles.
Formulated with bitter orange and retinol, this body mask helps create a sheen layer on the skin, visibly smoothing and tightening skin on butt, thighs, stomach, and hips. It's suitable for all skin types and comes with minimal side effects.
All in all, you don't need many steps in your routine to keep your booty looking lit. Throw in a good cleanser and toner if you're looking to upgrade your butt routine even more.
