An aging texture can appear in a subtle or quick (especially if you’re a smoker) way depending on your skin type. Whatever the case, we do what we can to stay looking young for as long as possible. Most people begin to prepare for the future of their skin at an early age. Moisturizers, botox, fillers, have always been popular until side effects and more wrinkles begin to appear, especially on the neck area.
Ever hear people say, “you can always tell how old someone is by the appearance of their neck?” Some might say it about one’s hands or eyes.
Simple Beauty Tip For an Aging Neck
Any skincare regime you have for your face should also be applied to your neck. It’s very simple. You don’t need to buy any other “special” creams specifically for that region. However, if you’re not doing it already, a good daily routine involves:
- Moisturizing with products rich in antioxidants
- Never forget your sunscreen (the higher the SPF, the better)
- Remember to wash your face before bed
Don’t forget to exfoliate
Adults can shed at least 50,000 skin cells per day. Although our bodies do a great job getting rid of these dead cells, it doesn’t always fluff everything out. So where do these dead cells go if they aren’t removed properly? It tries to travel back into your skin, creating clogged pores and eventually some nice blackheads. Yuck!
Experts recommend exfoliating at least twice a week. More than that might cause dryness, breakouts, and other unwanted skin problems. And yes, don’t forget to exfoliate your neck too!
Bring Collagen Back to Your Neck
Light therapy doesn’t just work for anti-aging our face. It works for the entire body too! Take a look at what happens with collagen as your skin ages (image 1 and 2). After light therapy (Collagen Rejuvenation image) collagen is restored, giving you younger looking skin!
When you go in for your next facial, ask your Esthetician about having the VersaClear light therapy on your neck. It’s a perfect combo to your treatment!
