The sun: your neck’s number one enemy
It is during the sun exposure without protection the skin suffers the most. In effect, UV accelerates cell aging and this is what will cause the hyperpigmentation spots and sagging skin. It is therefore essential to protect yourself with a appropriate sunscreen. We recommend opting for at least SPF 30, which blocks more than 96% of UV rays. Reduce your exposure as much as possible, avoid tanning oils and moisturize your skin well when you get home.
Massages for a neck that stays firm
We too often have the habit of remaining hunched over our cell phones or our computer keyboards, so we must relax the neck by keeping an elegant head posture as much as possible. Each day, perform a massage when you apply your beauty products: it is a question of placing your elbows at ear height and caressing your neck with the back of your hands. Spread your creams by drawing a V on your neck with both hands. Go down well to the neckline. You can also massage yourself with a jade roller… It prevents the appearance of fine lines, stimulates the production of collagen, improves the elasticity of the skin and helps deflate the face after a night’s sleep.
Serums, creams… choosing the right anti-aging products
firming cream, anti-wrinkle serum, special neck and décolleté perfecting treatment, mask… It’s up to you to choose what best suits your skin type. Whatever products you choose, it is important that you like the smell and the texture, so that you enjoy using them on a daily basis. Make a gentle scrub from time to time, to remove dead cells. Opt for products rich in antioxidants and, if possible, with hyaluronic acid for the plumping effect. Also note that “anti-aging” products are preventive, while those that are more “anti-wrinkle” attack wrinkles that are already present. We do not choose the same products whether we are 27, 45 or 70 years old.
Hydration: the key to firm and supple skin
We can never repeat it enough: we must hydrate your skin to keep it soft and plump. So, as we hydrates as much as possible, and this, every day! It is important to nourish the skin so that it remains supple and “young”. If you have a acne-prone oily skinmoisturize anyway, but turning to non-comedogenic products. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water either, the beauty of the skin also goes through this!
Neck and décolleté: opt for suitable make-up
To avoid an unsightly delimitation between your face and your neck, consider applying make-up. Opt for a smoothing base which you will cover with a face powder lifting for example, or a CC cream. Powder lightly to keep your makeup from shifting throughout the day.
