It’s an area that’s often overlooked – until the signs are already there, that is.
Want to know the secrets to keep your neck and cleavage looking their best? Take a hearty look at the lack of care, sun exposure, and volume loss to that region of your body as we get older. And the sooner you start paying attention to these areas, the better. Showing these areas of the body as much consideration as you do your face, is an important step to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Plus, the neck and décolletage have fewer oil glands than your face, and maybe more prone to drying out, Esther Fieldgrass, founder and creative director of EF Skin explains.
To rectify this skin problem and keep the skin looking fresh and highly plump, Esther explains that adding an added boost of hydration – whether that’s thicker moisturizers, hydrating masks, or serums will help in eradicating further skin problems in this area.
Esther suggests the following to enhance and look after the neck.
Can I Use Face Products on My Neck?
Multi-award-winning Esther Fieldgrass shares that whilst it’s a good idea to invest in a mask to specifically target the neck and chest, you can still use the added on solution from your face products to apply on your neck at the end of your face regime.
“Using a moisturising cream can be key to locking in hydration”. she adds. Serums with retinol, hyaluronic acids, and antioxidants like vitamin C are also highly recommended to help with the integrity of the skin and to minimize unwanted pigmentation.
“I advise using a really good hydrating serum from EF Skin (www.efskin.com)” Fieldgrass explains. “It is applied predominantly in upwards motions.”
Are There Any Specific Products I Should Be Using Daily?
“Most definitely! The main factor to help avoid premature aging of the neck and décolletage is the sun, you’ll want to use sunscreen (at least SPF 30) every day — whether or not you’re going outside”, says Esther.
