No matter how young you may look from the chin up, if you don’t lavish some care on your neck your age will be an easy read. Neck skin is a prime age-revealer; an article recently published in the Telegraph stated that “50% of the visible signs of ageing happen in lower part of our face and below the neck”. This is because the skin can be thinner, due to a lower level of fatty tissue, and more sensitive, therefore it is the first to suffer from premature elastin and collagen degradation. The neck area is also just as prone to changes in pigment, sun damage, texture―and, yes, to wrinkles.
Start to make a conscious effort in continuing your skincare regime below your jaw line and right down to your chest area. The neck has fewer sebaceous glands meaning that it dehydrates easily and needs nourishing ingredients to help restore this moisture.
With this in mind, here are some products that can improve the appearance of your neck, whatever your age.
Environ’s AVST Body Oil, £35.00, a lightweight formula which contains Vitamin A, to normalise and repair, Vitamin C and E to protect, hydrate, heal and guard against photo-damage and ageing, as well as Jojoba oil to soften and smooth.
Environ’s Revival Masque,£46.00, a unique combination of 3 acids (Asiatic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid) which work together to trigger the release of growth factors from the keratinocyte cells. This product will lighten pigmentation, reduce lines and wrinkles by making skin tighter, smoother, more radiant and younger looking – hailed as a facelift in a jar!
