All of us are super diligent when it comes to slathering our face with skincare products. But did you know that applying those very products, especially your sunscreen and moisturiser to your neck is extremely important? If the answer is no, you’re not alone.
You could have the best skincare regimen ever, but if you’re not showing the skin on your neck the same TLC as the skin on your face, all your hard work could be for nothing.
Follow these simple steps to ensure that your neck looks as healthy as your face at all times...
Moisturise your neck regularly
The skin on the neck is thinner compared to the skin on your face. This means that it loses its elasticity much more easily than the face. Ignoring the skin on the neck would make it sag in the future. Hence it is very important to keep this skin looking plump and nourished by regularly applying a moisturiser. Make sure you apply it evenly on your neck as well.
Provide sun protection
SPF shouldn’t just be reserved for those beach days you spend lounging by the ocean. You can get burned even on cloudy days, making sunscreen an essential product to use 365 days a year. But just like you protect your face it is important that you provide your neck with just as much UV protection. Not doing so puts your neck at risk of displaying signs of ageing much quicker than your face.
Exfoliate your neck too
Exfoliating your face is an extremely crucial part of your skincare routine. But always extend the scrub to cover your neck too. Since the skin on your neck is a lot more delicate, ensure that you use a scrub that isn’t too harsh as you don’t want to damage the skin. Rub the facial scrub gently across the skin in circular motions to keep your skin looking smooth and healthy.
