No More Neck Wrinkles!
Every year over $8 billion dollars is spent on cosmetics, and the industry is flooded with creams and products to cover up your crows’ feet, fade forehead wrinkles, and even tighten sagging skin around your eyes, mouth, and nose – but what about the wrinkles on your neck?
Wrinkles don’t discriminate – they appear when and where you least expect them, and though facial wrinkles seem to be the most dreaded, neck wrinkles can make you look aged beyond your years, and finding a good treatment can be like finding a needle in a haystack.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with a “turkey” neck the rest of your life. These easy-to-use tips and tricks will help keep those neck wrinkles under control.
Smooth Your Skin with These Easy-to-Use Tips and Tricks
Treat Your Neck in the Same Way You Treat Your Face: Because the face is the first thing people notice, we spend a lot of time pampering the delicate skin around our eyes and on our face. We take extra care to avoid pulling or stretching the skin, and we slather our faces in moisturizing creams, beauty masks, and cucumber slices.
However, your beauty regimen shouldn’t stop at your jawline. All the same skincare techniques you use on your face can also help keep the wrinkles at bay on your neck and bust as well. It takes daily, persistent care to have smooth sexy skin, and a few extra minutes to treat your neck will shave a few years off your overall appearance.
Invest in a Neck Wrinkle Cream: Although some facial wrinkle creams are acceptable to use on the neck and bust, it’s often better to invest in cream specifically designed for the neck. Because there is less fat in the neck and the skin is thinner, it can age faster than any other part on your body (except the eyes).
Shield Yourself from the Sun: We all know that the sun is the number 1 culprit for causing wrinkles – on all parts of your body! Applying sunscreen and wearing sunglasses might be enough to shield your face, but don’t forget that your neck is also exposed to the elements. Apply sunscreen to all parts of the neck (including the back and sides if you have short hair), and if you really want to set a fashion statement, start wearing a cute scarf to protect yourself against UV damage.
Stamp out the Cigarette: Smoking can have a devastating effect on your skin, destroying collagen and robbing it of oxygen and potential nutrients. Because your skin is thinnest on your neck and around your eyes, these areas will be the first to suffer its effects. Additionally, the more you smoke, the more you increase your risk of skin cancer and other serious medical issues.
Try Facial Exercises: Facial exercises can crinkle the delicate skin around your eyes and put you at risk for even more wrinkles as you age. However, there are a few exercises that can tighten the sagging skin around your jawline when performed correctly on a regular basis.
Improve Your Posture: Poor posture often results in the head tilting downward, causing the neck to settle into a mass of wrinkles. If you spend a lot of time at the computer, then take a few extra moments to analyze your sitting position. Are you sitting up straight and tall? Or are you humped over trying to get your work done as fast as possible?
Pretend there is a string attached to the top of your head, pulling it upward to the ceiling. If your head is on straight, then the rest of your body will follow.
Because your neck is so easily ignored, it’s hard to give it the loving care and treatment that you would typically give your face. However, with these tips and tricks you can say goodbye to your neck wrinkles and say hello to smoother, younger looking skin.
