You might be on track when it comes to treating your face to fabulous Dead Sea skincare. But fail to give your neck and décolletage the five star treatment and you put yourself at risk from the dreaded ‘turkey neck’ which is characterized by sagging skin and age spots. Unless you extend your skin care regime to the neck area and chest, you will undo the good work you’ve achieved in keeping your face young and beautiful.
The skin on the neck and chest area does not have as many oil glands as other parts of the body, and is thinner and less elastic than the skin on the face. The skin on the décolleté is also more sensitive since it has no fat tissue beneath it to protect it from the elements. We tend to overlook this vulnerable area of the body, leaving it at risk of becoming damaged from the sun’s UV rays. Smoking can also cause the skin to thin, while a lack of exercise as well as a reduction of hormones during menopause can also cause collagen fibers to lose elasticity.
For this reason skin is more likely to become prematurely aged, with sagging, dryness and age spots an issue. That’s why it’s essential to extend an anti-aging skincare regime to this area.
What can you do to promote youthful skin?
In order to keep skin on the neck and chest as youthful looking as possible, use the same high quality cleansers and moisturizers you use on the face. When moisturizing, gently massage from collarbone to chin in a circular motion. Sleeping on your back is also said to help keep skin smoother, if you can. When in the shower make sure the shower spray hits your neck too, as this can help increase circulation.
Sunscreen is as much a must for your neck and décolletage as it is for the face, so always use a good moisturizer with a built in UV filter. It may also help to use a product which has been formulated to specifically target this area of the body. Dead Sea Premier has a Supreme Lifting Neck Serum which protects the delicate neck area, with active ingredients which give skin a visibly healthier, and more luminous appearance.
Don’t allow your neck and décolletage to give the game away when it comes to your age – give the skin here some TLC and wait for the compliments to pour in.
