Skincare Routine: Combat Aging Neck Skin with These Treatments
When you think of your skincare routine and anti-aging, many people will say look at the neck. At a certain point, it’s natural for our neck skin to start sagging, become wrinkled, or crepey.
There are plenty of ways you can protect this area, whether it’s by cutting out bad habits or getting specific treatments or perfecting your skincare routine.
We’ll break it all down for you here! Think about your skincare routine.
- How many different creams, serums, cleansers, etc. are on your bathroom counter right now?
- How many of them are you putting on your neck as well?
So many patients are dedicated to their skincare in an attempt to fend off the effects of aging, but if you’re skimping on your neck and chest area, you may want to rethink your routine.
Protecting Your Neck
Before we get into some effective treatments and routines, let’s talk about some surprising ways you may be aging this area already.
The skin around our neck is often the first to show visible signs of aging, by implementing the above changes into your daily routines you can help protect this area! However, we understand that a little outside help is also necessary.
1. Forgetting the SPF
If you’re already diligent about wearing SPF 30 on your face, good job! Make sure you slather sunscreen on your neck as well.
Otherwise, you may be facing sunspots and premature wrinkles. Look for a sunscreen with antioxidants, like Vitamin C, to get extra sun-blocking protection.
2. Letting Your Weight Fluctuate
Did you know that losing and gaining the same 20 pounds over and over can stretch out your neck and give you the dreaded “turkey neck”? Work hard to maintain a healthy weight, avoid crash diets, and implement neck exercises into your daily routine.
3. Avoiding Heavy Jewelry
The occasional statement necklace is fine, but if heavy jewelry is part of your everyday wardrobe, you may want to rethink your accessory choices. When jewelry is too heavy, it can stretch, sag, and scratch your neck skin.
4. Applying Perfume to Neck Area
Alcohol in some perfumes can dry out your skin (hello wrinkles!) and may make this area more sensitive to the sun. Instead, opt for spritzing your wrists!
5. Forgetting Your Neck Routine
Your neck care routine should mimic that of your face. Cleanse and moisturize your neck area to keep the skin hydrated and clean! Don’t forget the occasional exfoliation. Be sure to choose an oil-free moisturizer so that you don’t clog your pores and cause neck acne.
