When we think of anti-aging skincare, we normally focus on the face and often overlook the neck.
Our neck is a part that shows the first signs of aging: it’s often exposed to the sun and environmental pollutants for long periods. Also, as we age, collagen production decreases in the body, creating wrinkles and a loosening of skin. These factors can affect the neck’s texture and produce sagging, deep lines, and pigmentation.
Integrating neck cream into your anti-aging skincare routine
Similar to your moisturiser, neck cream can be applied morning and night, and layered with your favourite serum.
Because neck skin is much thinner and more delicate than your facial skin, when applying neck cream, be careful not to pull. Sweep on your neck cream in gentle, upward motions to discourage sagging and avoid stretching the skin downwards. Don’t get too rough! This is a delicate area, so be gentle with your neck. As neck creams have a thicker consistency than facial moisturisers do, allow time for the product to sink in before getting dressed.
Men who shave need specialised care for their complexion. Moisturisers for men are formulated with men’s skin in mind.
Remember that neck creams aren’t just for mature skin. Starting preventative measures in your 20s is a great way to ward off future deep lines or sagging.
