(English) Best antiaging neck treatments according to experts
“There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion,” Edgar Allan Poe.
When it comes to aging, we can all agree it brings about A LOT of disproportion and if that is what this well-loved author meant then I guess we can say we are getting more exquisitely beautiful by the year.
It’s common for many to focus more attention on their faces, concerned with the wrinkles and pigmentation that occur as they age, and neglect to notice what’s going on below the face. Skincare on the neck, chest and back of your hands are just as important, these areas are just as exposed to UV rays and the environment as our face.
Before you know it, the signs of aging creeps up on these areas, with your neck looking crepey and saggy and here’s why
- Sun and gravity are your neck’s two worst enemies. Without proper care, the skin around your neck area loses it firmness and elasticity and will inevitably develop age spots, wrinkles and saggy skin.
- The skin on your neck is thicker than the skin on your face, as such it will require deeper penetrating ingredients to make a difference to the skin here.
- The skin on your neck requires more specialized ingredients that can help to strengthen the skin’s surface as well as speed up the healing process as this area tends to heal slower than the skin on your face.
Treating ageing skin around your neck
Now that we know that the skin around our neck requires special TLC, here are our top recommended suggestions on how you can do just that for your neck.
Tone your neck muscles
As with any other body part, to keep them looking good and working well, you need to exercise and tone your neck muscles to firm up your skin and strengthen the supporting muscle underneath. You can do this by moving your head and neck back and front then, side-to-side.
Engage in some stretching exercises too. Try stretching as far to the left and to the right using your hand pressing on the top of your head. Next, try raising your head up to the ceiling as you raise both arms to reach for the ceiling, while standing on your toes.
- Use rollers
Rollers are a common beauty accessory when it comes to the face and even for cellulite problem areas. Why not use the roller for your neck too? Complement this with a treatment oil specifically for the neck that can help to hydrate and plump up the skin around this area, for an antiaging effect.
