During our skincare routines, we tend to focus on treating the face, with our neck often being left as an afterthought. It’s time to stop neglecting our neck! It's important to remember that the skin on our neck is thinner, and is one of the first areas to show signs of aging - yet we repeatedly expose it to the elements without adequate treatment or protection. We're sharing three important reasons why you shouldn’t neglect your neck!
Your Neck Is More Susceptible To Damage
Our skin is full of sebaceous glands - a small oil-producing gland that lubricates the skin - but the neck area tends to have fewer glands compared to your face. Due to this, the neck is more prone to skin concerns like dryness, irritation, and scarring. Since the neck is so vulnerable, it is important to keep the area nourished and moisturized. When cleansing, be sure to extend your routine to your neck area, when you move on to moisturizing, liberally apply the product to your neck area too. Don't forget to reach for specialist treatments, like an anti-aging serum, to make sure the skin on your neck is protected and looking its best.
Your Neck Is The First Place To Show Signs Of Aging
The skin on your neck is incredibly thin, and as delicate as the skin on your eyelids, making it one of the first areas that show signs of aging. This delicate area has less collagen compared to the skin on your face, making it more susceptible to aging and wrinkles. With the advent of smartphones, we are also perpetually looking down at our screens, which causes ‘tech neck’, a constant hunching over and repeated folding of the skin on the neck, this can cause premature wrinkling in that area.
Keeping Your Skin Sun-Safe
When preparing to head out in the morning, we tend to forget to apply sunscreen to our neck. Unfortunately, forgetting to regularly apply sunscreen is one of the main culprits of premature aging on the neck. Cumulative sun exposurewillcause sun spots, loss of elasticity and crepiness overtime.
