We all know how important it is to regularly moisturise and exfoliate your face. After all, we want to make sure that our face looks healthy and youthful. But it can be easy to overlook one vital part – your neck. It shouldn’t be that difficult to forget – it’s right under the face after all! Unfortunately, we often neglect the decolletage in our beauty routines. The neck can show visible signs of aging, so it’s important to take care of it. Think of it this way: you don’t want to have a million dollar face and a $1 neck!
Tips for looking after your neck
The skin on our neck is thinner, meaning it loses its elasticity much more easily than the face. We don’t want the skin on our neck to sag, so we need to apply moisturiser daily. Begin your beauty routine by applying cleanser to the face and collar area. Then when you are applying your moisturiser, make sure to spread it over the front and sides of your neck as well. Don’t forget to repeat this process before going to bed as well!
Reduce UV exposure
One of the most notorious culprits for skin damage is exposure to the sun. Protect these sensitive areas from UV rays by using SPF moisturiser and wearing sun protective clothing. Buy a nice sun hat so you can look chic and be sun smart at the same time! On milder days, a light scarf can also protect your collar area while also giving a fun flair to your outfit. Sun smart doesn’t need to mean fashion faux pas!
Exfoliate your face and neck
Don’t forget – exfoliating is a key part of a healthy beauty routine! A few times a week, be sure to lightly exfoliate the skin on the face and decolletage. Make sure to use a facial scrub that isn’t too heavy or oily. There is such a thing as over-exfoliating, so rub the facial scrub gently across the skin in circular motions. This will keep the skin looking smooth and healthy.
Treating your face and neck to the same daily beauty routine will give your skin a clear and consistent look. Keep your skin looking healthy and like it’s worth a million dollars. So take this as your reminder: don’t wreck your neck! It’s the only thing holding up your ONNE-derful face.
