Taking Care of Your Neck and Chest

Taking Care of Your Neck and ChestKeeping your complexion youthful is a common goal among those hoping to preserve their appearance as they get older. However, other parts of the body age as well and neglecting those areas can turn out to be a dead giveaway to your true age. The neck and chest are two areas that should get just as much attention - if not more - as the face.


The secret to keeping the neck and chest area free from the signs of aging is to stimulate the blood flow and circulation, reinforce and protect the skinís surface layer and keep the areas properly moisturized and hydrated. Unlike other anti-aging treatments, you donít need any fancy surgeries. There are plenty of non-invasive techniques and anti-aging skincare products that are designed to tackle the aging woes of the neck and chest.


The best way to maintain a youthful neck and chest area is to include them in your daily skincare routine. After cleansing and exfoliating your face, be sure you cleanse and exfoliate your neck and décolleté area (a fancy word for the chest) as well. Let`s not forget that our neck and chest are extensions of our face. As pricey as anti-aging products can be, many of us may be a little hesitant to use so much on areas other than that face. However, a neck lift is every bit as expensive as a face-lift. Prevention is the key and you will save money in the long run. Still unsure about blowing through your precious anti-aging cream arsenal? No problem! Another alternative is to buy skin-firming products that come in larger quantities for targeting larger areas. You can find such skincare products in any drugstore.


Next apply any of the normal anti-aging serums and products you would normally use on your face to these areas as well. Be sure to tap the cream onto your skin and rub it in using circular motions. The neck isn`t quite as fragile as the skin on the face so you can be a little more aggressive. However, you still want to use the "gravity rule" by not pulling downward on the skin of the neck. This area is ideal for absorbing products because the skin is tougher. This allows for the use of heavier anti-aging products such as massage oils containing antioxidant properties such as vitamin A and E, nourishing creams with anti-aging ingredients such as Retinol, beech extract or vitamin C.


In addition to anti-aging creams formulated for the neck, there are other measures you can take to keep the neck and chest as youthful looking as possible. There are aromatherapeutic wraps for the neck that offer heat and lavender therapy. Some day-spas offer special masks targeted specifically for the neck, while others offer specialized exercises and massage therapy to help support a firm, taut and healthy neck.


With so many effective ingredients (such as liposomes with elastin, trace elements and polysaccharides) it is possible to restructure the tissue, tighten and regenerate the skin to help restore the youthful appearance it once had. In order to reverse the damage and maintain healthier skin you need to make some simple lifestyle changes. Basically, by not neglecting the neck while doing your daily facial skincare regimen, exfoliating and massaging and even doing neck firming exercises along with maintaining good posture, you can help strengthen the connective tissue contributing to a more beautiful and appealing neck.
