Body Skincare Routine???

As much of the emphasis is put on the facial skincare, I am at a loss of what ingredients I should track when using body products.

I just want to nurture my body skin, and boost its elasticity/firmness but am not sure whether my "routine" is adequate or if there are better products. Any recommendations what to look for..?

Such a good question! The main 2 goals for the body skincare are: 1) protect from sun damage (especially neck, chest, hands - they get exposed a lot, often even in winter); 2) moisturize (+ 3) gentle washing without overwashing).

It looks like you are not applying a body moisturizer daily - I think it would be a very good idea. You don't need to go for anything particularly expensive, a basic body lotion can get the job done (ideally fragrance free).

You can also apply retinoid products in areas where sun damage is most likely - back of the hands, neck & chest for example. Cheaper retinoid serums (for example, the ones from Ordinary) or a special retinoid body product like the one from Paula's choice: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/paulas-choice-retinol-skin-smoothing-body-treatment.
