The neck and décolletage are often the first areas of the body to show visible signs of age. This is simply because the skin in this area tends to be thinner and therefore less able to retain moisture, produces fewer protective lipids so prone to dryness, and has greater exposure to the elements.
What is the best time to start caring for my neck?
Although many of us are guilty of neglecting this area until we start seeing visible changes, as with all ageing of the skin it’s never too late to start and preventative measures work best, so we advise caring for your neck area as early as possible.
Changes to the neck and decolletage vary also, depending on genetics, the amount of unprotected sun exposure, and your age. Many people do not note visible changes until around the age of 40, when loss of elasticity and pronounced wrinkles become more apparent, however others may see signs of dehydration and/or uneven skin tone as early as the late twenties.
Do I need specific skin care just for my neck?
Caring for your neck and decolletage need not be complicated and can often be as simple as extending your current skincare regime to this area. This includes serums and products that help to accelerate skin turnover, such as Liquid Gold, which are all suitable to extend to the neck and décolletage areas.
