Let’s face it, a saggy neck can be a real struggle and affect your self-esteem.
The skin on our neck sees quite a bit of sun and if we add the effects of, you know, gravitation, it can
show signs of ageing sooner than other parts of the body.
The dermis (the layer that contains collagen) is very thin in this area compared to your face, making it
more susceptible to ageing than other parts of your body…
Even factors like your posture as you read this email have an impact on the appearance of the skin on your neck.
Just as smokers get deeper wrinkles around their
mouths than non-smokers, excessive bending can prematurely age the skin on your neck.
This is because the neck has fewer sebaceous glands and less collagen, making it naturally more prone to wrinkles and sagging...
… okay but is neck sagging reversible without surgery?
When it comes to skincare, part of the problem lays in the fact that many people tend to pamper their face and then stop at the chin…
Your neck needs just as much care, as well as consistency, and some of the damage can be reversed partly.1. Pay attention to posture
This is one of the fundamentals when it comes to external factors that increase neck sagging.
Instead of looking down at your phone or tablet, bring it up to the level of your face.
Also, make sure your computer is elevated enough to keep your head above your shoulders.
This will help maintain and protect the collagen and elastin in that area.2. Bakuchiol for neck firming
Bakuchiol is a very gentle retinol alternative that provides the same results as retinol, but without the irritation.
It contains many vitamins and antioxidants that can help tighten the skin on the neck.
The Rose Youth Elixir is formulated to instantly tighten the skin in this area and provide amazing skin-firming results.
How will Bakuchiol help sagging of the neck?
It stimulates collagen production, counteracts sagging of the neck and over time can improve the look of the skin.
3. SPF, SPF, SPF
Since the skin on the neck is thinner, it requires very good sun protection.
Winter or summer, sunscreen should always be your skin’s best friend!
Sunscreen is a crucial step in any skincare routine, and that goes for the skin on your neck as well.
It’s a good idea to opt for mineral-based sunscreens as they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Here’s how you can make sure this sensitive area is protected from both types of rays.
The Antarctic Sun Defence is a mineral- based sunscreen that not only protects the skin but also contains a peptide from Antarctica that’s been shown to counteract skin ageing.4. Neck exercises for firming
Did you know that there are 26 muscles on the neck and those muscles need some working out too?
Although there are no published studies, facial yogis swear by its effectiveness.
Here’s an exercise you can try: Lift your head so that your chin is pointing up, and then
move your jaw forward so that you feel a slight stretch in your chin.
Hold this position for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times.
While it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to strenghten your neck muscles with this exercise alone, if you do it regularly combined with your Rose Youth Elixir, you can tighten and lift them.
The Rose Youth Elixir contains Bakuchiol and will help boost collagen production resulting in a firmer look.
It also contains Rosa Damascena oil that has been used for centuries for its antioxidant and anti-ageing effects.
Over time, although it won’t reverse it, the Rose Youth Elixir can improve the look of saggy neck, making it tighter.
