Neck and neckline are very sensitive areas on the female body and require as much attention as the skin on the face. However, they are often neglected in care or it is insufficient. How to take care of the neck and décolleté skin? What treatments will help to keep it in good condition for longer?
The neck and décolleté area is an exceptionally delicate part of the body – it is here, among others, that the first signs of skin aging appear most quickly. The epidermis is much thinner in this region than on the face and there is a lack of sebaceous glands, which results in faster drying and sagging of this part of the skin.
In addition, the amount of collagen fibers present is quite low, which also contributes to a loss of firmness. All this means that the skin on the neck and décolletage can quickly show signs of aging without proper care.
You can read about how to properly care for the neck and décolletage area below.
Rule number one: Use cosmetics for the neck and décolleté that you use for your face. In no case should you apply body lotion or cream to the neck and décolleté area – these products are far too heavy for the delicate skin on the neck and décolleté.
Make sure that the creams you use have the right nutrients. Collagen, hyaluronic acid, coenzyme Q10, ceramides or vitamin C – the skin in the neck and décolletage area needs them most.
Remember also to apply any preparations in the direction of muscles – that is, from the neckline upwards.
Apply nourishing neck and décolletage masks from time to time (preferably once a week) for extra skin regeneration. These can be ready-made products from stores or pharmacies, but you can also prepare a nourishing mask at home. Ingredients such as banana, avocado, green tea or olive oil are perfect for preparing a homemade mask that will effectively moisturize the skin in these areas.
This is an important element that we may forget about. Thorough cleansing of the skin on the neck and décolletage area with the use of appropriate products is a very important part of everyday skin care.
While cleansing the neck and décolleté area, we should use substances intended for face cleansing. Just as with creams, body gels and soap may not be suitable for the delicate skin of the neck and décolleté.
While this is bad news for fans of a strong tan, frequent exposure to the sun is definitely not good for the skin on your neck and décolletage. Be sure to apply sunscreen to these areas before going out in the sun. It is important to use the same sunscreen as you use on your face. Do not use a body cream on the neck and décolletage area – these creams are too heavy for these skin areas.
In addition to daily skin care and treatments that can be applied at home, it is worthwhile to visit a beauty salon once in a while and treat your skin with professional care. Treatments such as microneedle radiofrequency, mesotherapy, radio waves, carboxytherapy, or hyaluronic acid treatments offered in beauty parlors can effectively regenerate the skin in the neck and décolleté area.
