If you applied a moisturizer and sunscreen on your neck this morning, please raise your hand! 🙋🏻♀️
Chances are you didn’t.
Turns out the neck is one of the most neglected parts of your body. And also one of the first parts to age! That’s because the skin on your neck is much thinner and has less oil glands than the rest of your face.
So here’s what you gotta do…
1. Sunscreen could save your neck.
If there’s just one thing you should do, it’s apply sunscreen.
If you don’t, in a couple of years, the skin on your neck will get not only get lines, but also these awful looking spots and pigmentation – and then, there’s not much you can do about it.
Prevention is so much better than cure, I say!
2. Fight the “tech neck”!
Tech Neck happens when you spend too much time bent over a phone or laptop. This unnatural posture is causing lines and wrinkles to form on your neck as early as the 20’s!
What to do? Reduce screen time (No effing way!)
Apart from that, do simple neck exercises whenever you remember. Roll your head from side-to-side, back to front. It takes just a few seconds but makes a big difference.
3. Don’t let your neck get dry. Ever.
Your neck has very little oil glands compared to your face. Because of this, it’s more prone to getting dry and irritated. What goes on your face should go all the way down to your chest. Simple.
4. Technique is everything!
The way you apply products on your neck makes all the big difference in the world.
Say is after me, “Upward movements! Upward movements!”
Always apply your moisturizer from the bottom of your neck up to the jawline – so that you are not pulling your skin down (and causing future sagging).
So from this moment on, look after your neck, the way you do your face. You will thank yourself 10 years from now…!
