We are all guilty of giving our skin care plenty of face time. We carefully apply masks, serums, and moisturizers to the space between our hairlines and our jawlines, neglecting the delicate skin around our necks. Not to be ignored, the neck has thinner, more fragile skin than the face, making it especially vulnerable to signs of aging. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to hide and prevent the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging around this delicate area.
Take full advantage of fall fashion trends. Silk scarves, chunky chokers and layered turtlenecks are all the rage this season – and are a chic alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures (Stylecaster). Extra points for items in dusty rose or yellow, the must-have hues of the moment.
STRETCH IT OUT
Stretch your neck daily to tighten weak muscles, stimulate blood circulation and allow greater oxygen flow and nourishment into your skin cells. Try these simple stretches to keep the skin around your neck looking smooth and wrinkle-free:
Tilt your head back. Press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth and swallow. Repeat with your head tilted to the right, then with your head tilted to the left (Livestrong).
Place your fingertips at the base of the neck and lightly pull the skin downwards while slowly tilting your head back. Hold for a few seconds, tilt your head back towards your chest and repeat (Marie Claire).
Hydration is key to preventing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We suggest using our Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face & Neck before turning in for the night. After cleansing, apply this luxurious cream to the skin, starting from the collarbone and working your way to the jawline in fluid, upward motions. Enriched with monoi, argan oil and our exclusive Anti-Aging Stem Cell Complex, this deeply hydrating moisturizer nourishes and replenishes the skin overnight, leaving you with skin that appears smoother, softer and more youthful.
GIVE YOUR SKIN AN INSTANT LIFT
Some days, you need an extra boost. For results you can see instantly, we suggest using our Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream – apply it under your usual daytime moisturizer to visibly tighten the skin in the neck and décolletage area in minutes. A blend of hibiscus and botanical hyaluronic acid enriches and hydrates the skin, while all-natural active ingredients like paprika and edelweiss revitalize and tighten sagging skin, smoothing away the appearance of wrinkles.
