Most people focus their skincare routine on their face, but the neck and decollete are just as important. Unfortunately, these areas are often neglected, which can lead to premature aging. Neck wrinkles, also known as "tech neck," are a common problem that can be difficult to reverse. So if you want to keep your neck and decollete looking young and healthy, it's important to include them in your skincare routine. Here are a few tips:
1. Use a neck cream or serum specifically formulated for the neck and chest area. These products are often more lightweight and easily absorbed than facial creams, making them ideal for the delicate skin on the neck and décolleté. My personal neck and chest preservation routine consist of:
AM: Apply Nectifirm Advanced where I dispense two pumps into the palm of my hand and use upward strokes from my decollete, working my way up to the neck and jawline. Pro Tip: Protect the neck and chest area from the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Apply sunscreen daily, SPF is key to preventing signs of aging in the area!
PM: Apply a thin layer of Techno Neck Perfecting Cream on the neck and decollete, avoid tugging or pulling at the skin, and always be gentle. Pro tip: If you use a prescription or over-the-counter retinol apply before Techno Neck Cream in the evening to treat signs of aging overnight.
2. Use a body scrub to exfoliate the neck and chest area regularly to slough away dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. This will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Remember to always be gentle when applying a body scrub to this area.
3. Seek out neck and chest treatments. Facials that include a neck and chest massage can help to improve circulation and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Microneedling and laser skin resurfacing are also great options for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Botox injections for your platysma muscle can also help to prevent neck sagging.
By following these simple tips and including a few neck treatments in your skincare routine, you can help to keep your skin looking gorgeous for years to come!
