Did you know that the skin around our necks show signs of aging as quickly as the skin around our eyes? So why do we spend an obscene amount of money on eye creams, yet often times completely neglect our necks?

While we can go to extremes to reverse the signs of aging around our eyes, unfortunately, due to blood vessels and the thyroid laying so close to the skin, there is nothing drastic we can do for our necks.

So what do we do?

Consider your neck a part of your face. Always moisturize your neck with a moisturizer rich in antioxidants. Use as much moisturizer on your neck as you would on your face. Using gentle upward strokes, gently apply the moisturizer with your finger tips, being careful not to stretch the skin. Establish a morning and night routine, and make a little time to take care of this delicate skin…. And don’t forget sunscreen!

    You are so right. I am so afraid of getting one of those giblets on my neck when I get old….

    I’m really glad you pointed this out. I am doing so much for anti-aging and one of the things I keep forgetting to do is apply cream on my neck.

    I like the tip to consider your neck part of your face. I have faint lines showing on my neck now from age I guess. Ruh Roh, here we go… 😉

    Its so true how much attention the Beauty Industry give to the Face and Eyes while the neck shows sooner …. I use a Nivea Moisturizer to keep things in tact

    Very interesting. I never thought of my neck as part of my face before but it makes sense.

    This is a great post. It can be so easy to neglect moisturizing your neck, however, it is an important part of the body too.
