Today, we’re diving into a topic that often gets left out of the skincare spotlight – the neck. Much like the skin under your eyes, the neck is delicate and often the first area to show signs of ageing, whether it be from sagging, wrinkles, or dark spots. This is partly due to the fact it has fewer oil glands to replenish the skin than the face does. So, while we focus our attention on our facial skincare, the neck is often left out.
If your skincare regime is delivering results, why not extend these benefits to your neck as well?
How to take care of your neck
Neck Care Top Tips:
- Extend Your Skincare: Whatever you apply to your face, extend it down to your neck. Consistency is the key here, so try to make it a regular part of your regime.
- Mind Your Posture: Beware of 'Tech Neck'. Constantly staring down at a device (e.g. a phone) can encourage creases and wrinkles! Try to keep your devices at eye level, and if you're desk-bound, invest in a laptop stand for that perfect screen angle.
- DIY Facial Massages: Turn your skincare routine into a mini spa experience! Using a few drops of oil, massage your neck with upward strokes to boost circulation and encourage a lifted appearance.
- Be Gentle: The neck is delicate, so avoid skin pulling and harsh scrubs. If it's a no-go for the under-eye area, it's a no-go for the neck.
Pick the Right Ingredients: Collagen, Griffonia Seed, Peptides, and Retinol – these are your neck's BFFs. Also, don't forget SPF! UV rays are sneaky culprits for premature ageing, and your neck needs protection too.
Top picks for your regime
If you’re looking to elevate your skincare game to benefit both your face and neck, here are my top picks! The 5-HTP Face & Neck Cream is a great place to start (the name is a giveaway). This cream is formulated with Griffonia Seed Extract to help improve skin suppleness and elasticity, whilst Caffeine helps to energise and refresh the complexion. If you’re looking for the ultimate anti-ageing powerhouse, try combining the cream with a few drops of the Collagen Booster Serum for instantly tighter looking skin. This highly concentrated serum is formulated with a youth-boosting blend of vegan Collagen, Honey Locust Seed and Algae Extracts to help smooth and lift.
By following these tips, you'll help to keep your neck supple, firm, and protected against the perils of time (and tech). Often, it’s the small daily rituals that make a big difference!
