Believe it or not, your neck is the first area to show signs of aging as you grow older! This happens because the muscles around the neck get weaker with age, making the skin around it loose and wrinkled. The neck is also exposed to UV rays and environmental stressors, just like the face. And yet, while we naturally include face cleansing in our skincare regimen, the same unfortunately does not hold true for our necks! This in turn leads to the development of age spots, sagging and fine lines.
While both aging and environmental stressors are inevitable, it’s possible to guard against fine lines and wrinkles. Here’s what you can do, to ensure that you keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay or at least delay their onset:
- Use a good neck cream
Many dermatologists and aestheticians agree that using a good neck cream is an effective and non-invasive solution in slowing down the process of skin aging around the neck area. The skin around the neck is thinner than that on the rest of the face and also contains fewer sebaceous glands. A good neck cream like Mitchell USA’s Neck Therapy Cream, helps hydrate the skin and locks in moisture effectively. Enriched with extra amounts of Lotus Bio-Repair Formula, it helps repair and revitalize the skin on the neck and successfully reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Always remember, the earlier you begin to use a neck cream, the longer its effects on your skin. So begin young, and show off a beautiful neck that’s worthy of applause!
2. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
Dead skin cells are almost like an invitation to skin aging. They cause the skin to dull and lose its natural glow. Exfoliating can help brighten your skin, including the skin around the neck. It’s always a good idea to include a skin exfoliator like Skin Polish – Insta Brite by Mitchell USA in your skincare regimen, prior to using a neck cream. This will clear the dead cells from your neck skin and allow the anti-aging neck cream to penetrate deeper. Do remember though, always exfoliate with a light touch to prevent injury to your neck skin.
3. Exercise those neck muscles
Tighten and tone your neck muscles regularly, so as to increase blood flow and increase the natural production of collagen. Neck exercise and facial yoga are extremely effective exercises in tightening the skin around your neck and preventing the formation of fresh wrinkles. They also help strengthen the functions of the neck like the flexion, extension, and lateral flexion. Some simple exercises you can try at home are, the neck lift, the forehead push and the swan neck.
