When it comes to skincare, I find that we too often forget about the neck! Just as you apply cleansers, serums and moisturisers to your face, it's important to remember to do the same for your neck and décolletage. This area on the body is composed of thin, sensitive skin that's prone to ageing and wrinkling!
The skin on your neck also has less sebaceous glands and lipids to protect it from environmental factors that can speed up the ageing process. These range from always applying sunscreen (your neck is more at risk of UV damage as it has fewer melanocyte cells!), quitting smoking and performing neck exercises regularly. The best way I find to reduce the ageing process? Applying natural neck creams that tighten and tone your neck and décolletage!
Why should you use a separate cream for your neck?
While your regular skincare routine is focused on treating your specific skin type (oily, dry, combination etc.), products applied to your neck should focus on firming and lifting! Neck creams are filled with hard working active ingredients that have been specifically formulated to keep your skin looking soft and toned. Here at Nourished Life we have a fantastic range of natural neck creams that will keep your skin looking youthful!
Which neck creams do I recommend?
100% Pure Retinol Restorative Neck Cream
The 100% Pure Retinol Restorative Neck Cream $59.95, is filled with skin firming ingredients that may help boost your skin's collagen levels. It also contains active ingredients including hydrolysed Red Quinoa which may help fight off the first signs of ageing by increasing the elasticity of your skin. Retinol targets fine lines and wrinkles, while the Niacinamide may help to brighten and even out your complexion. This luxuriously rich neck cream is the perfect way to ensure your skin remains smooth and hydrated!
Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream
Made with rich and regenerating ingredients, the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream $114, is ideal for mature skin types. This hydrating cream is filled with antioxidant rich oils including Coconut, Argan and Jojoba! It may firm, tone and lift the skin. I recommend applying this cream to your neck and décolleté twice daily after cleansing and toning. Your skin should be feeling supple and replenished in no time!
Juniper Skincare Skin Firming Serum & Primer
Practitioner and therapeutic grade, the Juniper Skincare Skin Firming Serum & Primer $28.95, is a lightweight gel formula that may help to tighten and firm the skin. Formulated with a natural blend of organic Aloe Vera, pure oils and micro-algae, this serum may help restore elasticity and also provides a smooth base for your moisturiser and makeup. It's ideal for anyone with sensitive skin as it may help ease skin aggravation and irritation. To use, apply two pumps of this serum onto the neck and face after toning.
