Neck - Beauty and Anti Aging Tips
Why is the neck skin aging faster?
The skin on neck is thin; it has less fatty tissue and sebaceous glands than facial skin. This is why the skin in the neck area is dry, and the dry skin always ages at a faster rate. Besides the neck muscles are not connected to the bone structure and therefore easily lose its elasticity. In addition the blood circulation is slower than on facial skin. Most women neglect the area of neck and décolleté and leave it without proper skin care. This explains the rapid fading and sagging of neck skin.
Remember, do not use creams for oily skin for your neck. Use special neck creams or rich moisturizing cream for dry or normal facial skin instead. Use fine facial scrubs on your neck at least once a week. Pay as much attention to your neck as you do to your face and it won’t betray you.
How to Tighten Loose Skin on Neck and Avoid Premature Neck aging?
There are some simple things you can do at home to improve the appearance of sagging neck, tighten and firm neck skin.
As part of your daily routine rub your neck with ice cubes every morning. You can make ice cubes from milk and water (1:1). You can also use herbal infusion to prepare ice cubes (chamomile, mint and others). This will speed up the blood circulation and help your neck look better.
To restore neck’s skin elasticity massage it gently with a very fine slightly damp salt. Smooth some oil to your neck before the procedure then rub gently in upward circular motions until slight redness appears. Soak a soft terry towel in a mix of hot milk with water (1 glass of milk and 1 glass of lukewarm water) and wrap around your neck. Leave it for 10 minutes or until cool. Rinse with cold water and apply a moisturizing cream.
Home Made Masks for Neck
Warm 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil on a water bath. Apply warm oil gently with cotton pad on a cleansed neck. Wrap with a soft cotton cloth, leave for at least 30 min and than remove the extra oil with a tissue. Repeat the procedure three times a week for 1 month. For better results do the mask before bedtime and leave it overnight after removing the access oil.
Mash 1 small boiled potato and mix with a 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable juice: carrot, cucumber or tomato. Smooth the mash over the cleansed neck. Cover with a piece of plastic and wrap a warm terry towel on top. Leave for 15 min and rinse with cold water.
Wash your neck and throat with the potato broth (the liquid left over when you boil potatoes) as often as you can. For even better results dilute 1 tablespoon of salt in 2 cups of warm broth, soak a terry towel in this liquid and apply to neck for few minutes. Then rinse with cold water.
Slice a cucumber and rub it all over your face and neck, let dry and apply 2-3 more coats on top. Cucumber contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, vitamin C, acid, Zink, Calcium, Magnesium, phosphorus, and other natural minerals. You can also place a slice of cucumber in the freezer for 5-10 min and use it as an ice cube.
Take 1 fresh tomato and 1 peeled cucumber and put it in a blender, add 1 half cup of cream and mix carefully. Apply to the neck and throat with a cotton pad in upward motion. Let dry and smooth over couple of more coats. Leave for 10-15 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Banana or avocado can also be used to help rejuvenate skin on neck. Both fruits have a lot of useful ingredients: antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The downside of the treatment is that it is messy and inconvenient to apply to neck.
Squeeze out the content of 3 Vitamin E capsules in a bowl. Mix with 2 teaspoons of yogurt, half teaspoon of honey and half teaspoon of lemon juice. Add is little pinch of salt. Smooth the mixture on your neck, leave for 15 minutes, rinse with cold water and pat dry. Apply a moisturizer.
For flabby, wrinkled neck skin take 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1.5 teaspoon of lemon juice. Add a pinch of salt. Mix it all together in a bowl. Smooth over your neck with a cotton ball. Leave for 45 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.
Skin Care Devices For Neck
There are also home skin care devices that can make your neck look better. Ozone Beauty Wand is one of them. You can also use D’arsonvale High Frequency machine set to a low level of intensity. Prior to using either of the devices apply moisturizing cream. (Not for people with heart or thyroid gland problems. Should not be used on irritated skin).
Microneedle Skin Roller is another device for neck that mechanically disturbs the skin to give boost to collagen production. Tremendous increase in absorption of healthy ingredients of skin care products is the other benefit of micro needling. The tiny channels created by the roller help better penetration into the deeper layers of the skin. The device is safe and easy to use for any skin type. The optimal roller needles size suitable for the neck is 0.25 to 0.3 mm
Keep in mind that consistency is the key to beautiful skin on your neck.
