Women often pay special attention to facial care, while forgetting about the neck. But it is the skin of the neck that fades faster and is able to give out the real age of its mistress. This is due to the fact that the skin here is especially tender, and the muscles are not particularly trained.
The basic principle of neck care is to use the same techniques as for the skin of the face. Just keep in mind that there are quite a few sebaceous glands, so the skin is drier. Avoid drying it out even more. Choose products for dry or normal skin.
Particular attention should be paid to nourishing and moisturizing the skin. Use appropriate creams for this. You need to apply them with light movements in the direction from the bottom up. You can “drive in” the cream by lightly patting the back of your hands on the neck. At the same time, stay longer in the area of \u200b\u200bthe formation of the second chin (potential or existing). This is one of the ways to prevent its occurrence, or eliminate it if it exists. Apply a nourishing and anti-aging cream as often as possible. Massage of the décolleté, neck and lower part of the chin (exactly in this sequence) is performed with stroking or circular movements. Try not to stretch the skin. The sides of the neck are massaged from top to bottom. Daily implementation of this simple procedure will bring results very quickly.
Various compresses and masks are very effective. Heat any vegetable oil, apply a thin layer on the neck and wrap with a towel for 20 minutes, previously covered with polyethylene. This will help the oil to be absorbed very deeply. You can lubricate the skin with a body care product, and put a wet towel folded in several layers on top. You can moisten it with water or a healing decoction. Contrasting compresses are also useful: alternately apply a cloth moistened with either hot or cold water. These procedures are carried out from one to several times a week.
Very useful for the skin are fruit and vegetable masks, as well as masks containing honey, egg yolk, vegetable oils, dairy products. Any face and body masks that are used for skin prone to dryness can be safely included in neck care.
The neck muscles do not experience any special stress, so they become decrepit early and worsen the appearance of the neck. This happens especially quickly if you have a habit of sitting hunched over with your head bowed and your neck relaxed. Therefore, exercises for this muscle group will be very helpful. Try to avoid this position, keep your head straight, sleep on a low pillow. All this will help to maintain youth, attractiveness and not advertise your physical age.
