We may spend a small fortune on all sorts of moisturizers and anti-aging serums to keep our faces young. Though as we slather and tap in those products, many of us hardly give much thought to our vulnerable necks that could shout our age more rapidly than you think. For this reason, let me explain why neglecting your neck skin care routine is never a good idea.
To begin with, the skin on our necks is extremely fragile since it lacks the same sebaceous glands as the rest of our face. In fact, only your eyelids have thinner skin. Without treating it as you would your face with a neck skin care routine, you may find that lovely neck because of that delicate skin can be the first part of you that can look old. If you don’t hope to see sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots or a crepey texture, you may want to start reevaluating how you care for your neck with a proper neck skin care routine.
When it comes to moisturizing the neck, you want to be careful and concentrate on a nutrient rich cream. However, you don’t want to just use the same anti-aging moisturizer that may have ingredients such as retinol, alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acids because they can be too harsh and unnecessarily irritate. Instead look for ones such as hyaluronic acid and peptides that can help increase the skin’ s collagen. Ingredients like shea butter and glycerin are helpful for moisturizing. In addition, check for at a sunscreen with SPF 30 to keep the area protected from free radical damage.
Something else that you should keep in mind is not to stretch the skin applying neck care products during your nightly beauty routine. It is important to use gentle motions from the neck and decollete and work upward, exerting as little pressure as you can in order to save the neck from aging.
Neck skin care creams can be expensive, but you can also do quite well turning to your kitchen for showing your neck some tender loving care. In fact, I have a great DIY neck cream that can save you money and performs beautifully.
