Your neck is one of the first places
to give away your age.
Unfortunately the neck is
highly visual so it is quite difficult
to cover up the fact that you
are aging if the condition of
your neck is not up
to the same standard as the rest
of your body.
It is not quite as easy as it
might seem because the neck skin
is one of the
areas on the body that gets particularly dry due to having fewer oil glands
than anywhere else on the body.
In addition to this lack of oil glands we are constantly turning our
head and moving it in different directions throughout the day.
This constant movement effects of collagen and elastin fibers causing
them to lose their tone sooner than other parts of the body.
Obviously we don't want to stop moving our head around as that
will be totally impractical, so what are the alternatives for helping to
keep the skin of the neck from sagging and looking old?
Well the first thing you need to do is consider this part of the body
as one of the more important parts that need your attention.
This will be a major change for many women who neglect the neck skin
in favor of spending time on the face or the rest of the body.
The most important thing that you need to do for the skin on your neck
is to keep it moisturized on a regular basis and
more so than for most of the rest of the body.
Ensure that you always put sufficient sunscreen on your neck
right up to your jaw line.
Make sure that you always put sufficient moisturizing cream on your neck
when you're doing your face and also when you're doing your body
as this particularly dry area can always do with more moisturizer.
Used upward strokes when applying cream to your neck and try not to look down when you're reading or working because this will encourage a double chin.
Rapid changes in weight gain or weight loss can also cause baggy
skin under the chin.
Just for fun here is a recipe, but my favorite is just using coconut oil.
