We often overlook our neck when we do our skincare, but did you know, the neck is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging? This is because the skin on your neck is thinner and more delicate, and thus is more prone to sagging.
What Causes Neck Sagging?
“Turkey neck,” or neck wrinkling and sagging, is caused by exposure to skin stressors such as sun and pollution. Since the skin on your neck is so thin, it’s more prone to getting wrinkles and creases, especially when neglected.
Fortunately, there are ways to prevent getting that awful “turkey neck.” Here are some tips on how to achieve and maintain the youthful-looking neck you’ve always wanted:
1. Exfoliate routinely
Regular exfoliation helps give your skin a firmer appearance by unclogging pores, removing dead and dry skin, boosting cell turnover, promoting collagen production, and improving overall skin texture.
However, remember that the skin on your neck is sensitive, so it’s advisable that you use a gentle chemical peel instead of a scrub for exfoliation. And avoid unnecessary pulling and tugging on your neck.
2. Use Anti-Aging treatments
You’ve probably been taking the extra steps to maintain the radiance and youthfulness of your face - give your neck an equal amount of attention!
If you haven’t already, we suggest starting an anti-aging regimen as soon as you can, paying special attention to your neck as well as your face. We recommend skincare products that have peptides or epidermal growth factors to achieve that youthful look of plump and dewy skin.
A great product for this is the Bluelene Revolutionary Anti-Aging Cream with Methylene Blue Night Cream. Infused with peptides and the supercharged antioxidant Methylene Blue, this night cream softens skin, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, and evens out your skin tone.
3. Never skip the sunscreen
The golden rule of anti-aging: always apply SPF. When it comes to anti-aging, preventative measures are the best solution. Protect your skin from the harsh UV rays by using a sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30. This will prevent photo-aging, hyperpigmentation and the formation of dark spots. Also, don’t neglect the back of your neck!
The Final Word
As much as possible, stay consistent with your skincare routine. You’ll have to be patient, as the results of anti-aging products don’t come overnight. But if you treat your neck with the TLC it deserves, you might just achieve the radiant, swan-like neck of your dreams.
