You can slow down the neck’s aging process by moisturizing, exfoliating, wearing sunscreen, using jade rollers or Gua Sha, and regularly using neck masks.
The neck is usually one of the first areas to show aging.
Why? Go ahead and feel your neck, then compare it with other parts of your body. You’ll likely notice that the skin on your neck is thinner and more delicate than it is elsewhere.
Your neck is also frequently exposed to sun and free radicals and is often forgotten in skincare routines. Luckily, you can change this. There are many ways to slow down the neck’s aging process and hold onto its youthful, radiant appearance.
Cleanse and Moisturize Daily
Your neck needs just as much love, care, and attention as your face – so be sure to include your neck in your skincare routine.
The neck has fewer sebaceous glands, meaning it has less natural moisture. That said, be sure to cleanse and moisturize your neck and décolleté twice per day. Use gentle, upward, circular motions to encourage tighter skin and muscles.
Wear Sunscreen Every Day
The skin on your neck also has fewer melanocytes than the skin on your face, meaning it has less natural protection from sunlight.
As the sun’s harsh rays can increase signs of aging, take some time to apply a strong, broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen every day. Re-apply if you are outside or in the sun for long periods, or be sure to wear a hat that keeps your neck area protected.
Just like elsewhere on the body, dead skin cells on your neck can build up over time, leading to rough skin that appears dull.
To combat this, exfoliate the neck and décolleté once per week to encourage cell turnover and remove dead skin cells and ingrained impurities. As the area is delicate, use gentle exfoliating products and a soft touch.
Try Gua Sha or Jade Rollers
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese technique that combines a sculpted tool with slow massage strokes to boost circulation and relieve tension.
Though the method can be used on the whole body, Gua Sha is ideal for the neck. As it does elsewhere, the practice encourages tissue mobility and skin elasticity, smooths wrinkles, detoxifies and depuffs, and stimulates collagen production.
Plus, it allows you to take some time to unwind, de-stress, and connect with yourself.
Similarly, jade rollers use gentle pressure to soothe, define and tone the skin while simultaneously encouraging lymphatic drainage and skin elasticity. Jade rolling is also a simple technique that anyone can master quickly!
Be sure to use long, upward strokes on the neck for immediate benefits.
Try an At-Home Facial
Treat yourself to an at-home facial once a week. Use a neck mask to reduce signs of aging. It will also help to restore elasticity, and will hydrate and brighten the skin with each use.
Start by cleansing your neck. Then, apply your mask, relax, and let the serum work its magic. After removing the mask, gently massage any remaining serum into your skin for even deeper healing.
