When asked what you are doing to care for your neck, here are the most common responses:
- I look at my face not my neck
- I wasn’t aware that my neck needed care till my friend mentioned it.
- I didn’t know that there are specific neck care products, or treatments available.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s just as important to apply skincare to your neck and chest as you would your face. The skin on your neck and chest is three times thinner than the skin on your face. These three areas are more prone to sun damage, which can cause sagging, hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging. This is why it’s good to give our neck some TLC!
For most of our lives, our neck and chest areas have been exposed to an accumulation of UVA and UVB rays. The UV light rays thin the skin and further deprive the body of its natural moisture leaving it dry, wrinkled, and saggy.
Neck lines are just going to happen; it’s a fact! These annoying lines begin to appear in our late twenties as biological aging begins. With biological aging, we lose skin elasticity and our skin begins to thin.
Sebaceous glands secrete oil, however, they don’t exist within the neck tissue; therefore the neck does not secrete a natural moisturizer.
