When we talk about skin care, most of us focus on our faces. But have you ever thought of taking care of your neck? If your answer is no, then this article is for you. As much as we give importance to our faces, our necks deserve the same treatment. But how are you going to do it? What are the ways to improve the look of your neck? How can you make it youthful once again?
Well, I’ll wrap this introduction and let’s jump to the techniques.
Why do you need to take care of your neck?
Did you know that your neck can show signs of aging faster than your face? That alone should push you to take extra care of it.
Ways to pamper your neck
Massage your neck the right way
You must also take time to massage your neck. But make sure that you are doing it correctly. Otherwise, you might damage it. Remember to start from the bottom to top and avoid massaging it using circular motions. The skin on our necks is actually more delicate than the skin on our faces. Thus, you have to be extra careful.
You can massage your neck for around 10 minutes and make sure to do a break in between. Don’t over massage your neck as it can cause strain.
Never forget your sunscreen
Like your face, or your entire body for that matter, your neck needs an ample amount of sunscreen. If you don’t do this, you will soon see signs of aging like lines. If you often wear clothes that reveal your neck, then you are prone to damaging your skin due to sun exposure. That’s more reason for you to apply sun protection.
Don’t forget oil to rejuvenate your skin
Use olive oil or chamomile oil on your neck. Be very careful when choosing your product. We highly suggest getting the pure form to reap its full benefits.
Create a natural mask for your neck
Yes, you can use a natural mask for your neck. Our favorite is mashed ripe banana which can be mixed with olive oil. If you want, you can use avocado instead. Again, your neck is more sensitive and delicate than your face. It deserves that much attention and love. But if you are using other kinds of mask like clay, never let it dry on your neck.
Start to have a ‘cold’ treatment
You probably know that ice is good if you want to tighten your pores, right? A lot of people are doing this on their faces. Now, it’s time for your neck to experience it. Do this for 15 minutes per day and you shall see the results.
Stay away from harsh soaps
When you are taking a shower, use your facial soap on your neck. Again, all your products must be gentle.
Don’t forget to remove your makeup
And lastly, don’t forget to remove your makeup from your neck. We’re pretty sure a lot of women are guilty about this. Well, things have got to change now.
