Revitalizing Face Neck & Décolleté Treatment
It’s usually now that we notice our facial skin has become dehydrated, lack lustre and in need of some TLC. We may not have been cleansing and exfoliating as thoroughly as required leading to a dull, sluggish complexion in need of replenishment and invigoration.
The neck area may have dull patchy areas, a loss of elasticity and a crêpe appearance. During the summer months, we may have not efficiently exfoliated our neck area, leaving traces of Summer suntan with the remnants now presenting as areas of patchy dull skin.
With temperatures dropping through winter we layer up with woolly jumpers, coats and scarves that may all sit snugly against our necks. The heating goes on, we may notch up the dial on our shower and bathe in high temperature water which leads to our skin becoming dehydrated and parched. We may not think to still be using sunscreen and we may not be applying moisturiser to the front, sides and back of our necks.
The skin on our neck is relatively thin compared to the rest of the body making it more susceptible to the friction from scarves and jumper necklines, itchy areas and sometimes breakouts can all occur. Add in winter dehydration and the natural signs of ageing and the neck area can quickly look older than its natural years.
Thorough cleansing is key to maintain your neck and décolleté. Many of you probably cleanse your face but often fail to be as thorough cleansing the sides and back of the neck which can experience build-up of dead skin leading to a dull lifeless appearance.
Remember, facial skin doesn’t stop at the jawline!
So, moisturiser should be liberally applied to the front, sides and back of neck as well as down onto décolleté which are all an extension of facial skin and should be maintained in the same way.
The neck and décolleté areas are renowned for showing first signs of ageing before other parts of the body due to the fact that they are often exposed to Ultra Violet light which accelerate extrinsic/environmental ageing. The consistent use of SPF is vital to protect against these potentially damaging UV rays which can lead to crêpeness and hyperpigmentation
All skins that need rejuvenating will benefit from this treatment but particularly those of you with a crepey appearance or lack of firmness to the neck and décolleté area.
