Neck skin is very sensitive, thus the first signs of aging appear earlier. This happens because the neck region has fewer sebaceous glands than that of the face, hence becoming dry and dehydrated more easily.
While we often focus on facial treatment, taking care of our face with the appropriate products, it seems that we don’t pay much attention when it comes to treating our neck and decollete. However, we must remember that both are extensions of our face and, therefore, they need specialized and intensive care. Keep in mind the following tips:
Choose the right products: Face creams aren’t suitable for the care of our neck and decollete, as in those areas our skin is thinner and has different needs. For this reason, you should choose a specialized product and incorporate it into your daily beauty routine. MACROVITA Face & Neck Dry Oil with olive oil & mastic oil offers the ideal extra care to all skin types. Moisturizes, tightens and soothes the skin, while protecting cells against oxidative stress. Furthermore, it stimulates the natural process of collagen and elastin production, softens wrinkles and leaves the skin looking healthy and youthful. Apply a few drops to the face, neck and decollete, any time of the day, and massage gently.
Do not forget the sunscreen: Sun protection is necessary all year round, especially on the neck, which is often forgotten. So, make sure to apply your sunscreen daily.
Avoid exfoliating products: Choose gentle cleansing products, while avoiding the application of those with strong exfoliating action, as they can cause undesirable irritations to the sensitive neck region.
Don’t omit the make up remover: It’s really important to remove make up from your neck and decollete in order to be kept clean.
Take care of neck’s back region: When it comes to treating our neck, we usually focus only on the area just below the face. However, it’s essential to also emphasize the back part of the neck as it exhibits the same care needs. In other words, it needs thorough cleansing, hydration and sun protection.
Avoid direct application of perfume: Many perfumes contain alcohol in their composition, which is recommended to be avoided before sunlight exposure, as it can contribute to the formation of skin spots or freckles. For this reason, you should avoid applying perfume directly to your skin. Spray your clothes and accessories with your favorite aroma instead!
