Increased Chin and Neck Firmness
When you age, signs of ageing start appearing, such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as sagging. These are natural processes that our bodies go through as we age. Our sign naturally becomes thinner. As a result, we lose the elastin and collagen we once had. The skin around our necks and chin are already thinner than the rest of the skin on our faces and therefore can show our age more than anywhere else.
The best way to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful without surgery or invasive treatments is through skincare. Keeping your skin moisturised is the key to preventing or postponing the signs of ageing.
When looking for a good neck cream, it’s important to look at the ingredients within it. “Apply moisturizer from the base of the neck up to the jawline. This helps stimulate upward direction and prevents the pulling down of the skin,” says NYC-based derm, Dr. Ellen Marmur. Dr Joshua Zeichner also says that many products for the neck area contain antioxidants, niacinamide, and peptides because they support healthy collagen production, while “some even contain polymers that form a ‘scaffold of sorts’ on top of the skin to help support and firm it temporarily.”
Antioxidants like Vitamin C is great for helping to protect your skin from free radicals that can cause fine lines and wrinkles. As well as stimulating collagen and elastin in your skin to help your skin bounce back.
Other incredibly hydrating and anti-ageing such as Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol are incredibly helpful when it comes to looking after your neck. Hyaluronic Acid is known for its incredible moisturising properties as a gram can hold up to 6 litres of water as well as being intelligent enough to not drown your skin. Whereas Retinol, helps your skin to shed dead skin cells which helps the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
