The Scientific Reason Your Neck Ages You The Fastest

If you are conscious of your skincare and anti-aging, you have probably spent a lot of time evaluating your face. You might notice the beginning stages of fine lines and wrinkles and spend plenty of time and attention on easing any signs of aging. Of course, your face skincare is important, but perhaps you have not thought much about the skin on your neck. 

Despite popular belief, the skin on your neck is actually what ages you the fastest. What does that mean? It means that as you age, even if your face remains looking youthful and dewy, your neck could ruin the facade of anti-aging. This is for a few reasons. In this article, we will discuss why your neck ages faster and what you can do about it.

Why The Neck Ages Faster

  1. It’s Thin: The skin on your neck is thin by nature, at any age. As you get older, it will continue to thin out. When your skin is at its thinnest, it is more impressionable. You might notice that you bruise easier, or that your skin will get cut easier. In addition, your thin skin will develop fine lines and wrinkles faster.
  2. It’s Always Moving: Naturally, your neck is responsible for a lot of integral movement. In the same way that you might develop lines on your face where you tend to squint or smile, your neck will develop lines in places where you frequently move it. 
  3. Water Retention: Because of the thinness, your neck will also not retain moisture very well. Likewise, the neck does not have as many oil glands as the face. Therefore, fine lines and wrinkles are more likely to show up faster on the neck.

What You Can Do 

To keep things simple, all you really have to do to slow the signs of aging on your neck is to take care of it in the same way that you care for your face. But remember, the skin on your neck is delicate, so be gentle. 

In addition to wearing sunscreen every day, using a gentle moisturizer that is built for mature skin is the best way to ensure that you are managing your skin in the healthiest way possible.

The Fièra Cosmetics Anti-Aging Neck Cream is designed just for that. With active ingredients such as shea butter, willow bark extract, glycerin, green tea extract, vitamin E, sodium hyaluronate, squalane, and glycolic acid, the Anti-Aging Neck Cream can help you say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles. 

All you have to do is apply a small dollop of the neck cream to the area twice a day (once in the morning and once at night), using circular motions to ensure that you have spread it accordingly. In due time, you will notice the skin on your neck begin to tighten and any preexisting lines begin to soften. Additionally, the neck cream helps reduce signs of sun damage and provides ample hydration where you need it most.
