Face Care - But What About Your Neck?

We appear to have forgotten all about our skin on our necks.

It’s not entirely our fault that we’ve been skeptical about neck moistures and the existence of what the beauty industry calls, “neck creams.” There are so many facial moisturizers and body moisturizers on sale.

Your neck has thin skin and it’s not just because it’s sensitive. Your neck skin has a different cell composition than the other parts of your body — just think about how rare neck pimples are. “Neck skin is different. The dermis is thinner and more prone to wrinkling. When you don’t have a thick dermis, there isn’t as much collagen in the skin, and all the support to keep it from wrinkling. Your neck skin is about as delicate as the skin on your eyelids.

Your neck is missing oil. The same substance you frantically try to blot away from your T-Zone is also what gives your skin moisture and youthfulness. Your neck has fewer sebaceous glands, which secrete oil. Most dermatologists agree that any kind of moisturizer will suffice. Since the neck area lacks sebaceous glands, even the rich body moisturizers would work fine and won’t give you a break out.

Don’t forget to always apply SPF to your neck. People usually apply sunscreen to their face and body, but often neglect to apply it to their neck. The neck is a primary aging concern for many in their mid-40s and 50s.

Many women take collagen suppliments to help with signs of skin aging and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen can strengthen and thicken the skin according to some experts, which can help ward off the causes of turkey neck but not all collagen supplements are created equal, which is why it’s important to do your research to find the best one.

If you tend to sleep on your side then you’re fastening the process of geing the neck and chest area sagging earlier than they should. We know it is really difficult to be aware of your sleeping position, but we must try.

The importance of skincare has been deeply ingrained in our personalities. We are constantly looking for new products to give us that soft, supple and youthful glow. So let's make it a habit to include our necks into our every day routine.
