How to: Care for your neck
Like our hands, our neck tends to be a dead giveaway of our age. As people get older, there is a greater risk for “turkey neck,” which is a result of having less collagen, so the skin loses its elasticity over time.
Unless you’re wearing turtlenecks or scarves every day, the environment and the sun’s UV rays also affect the neck. UV rays can lead to free radicals, which are unstable molecules that attach to healthy skin cells and break down collagen. Sun exposure is also responsible for wrinkles, brown spots and a decrease in tautness of the skin. So, sunscreen should be part of your morning skin routine every single day.
And with devices constantly in our hands, people are rapidly developing “tech neck,” which are horizontal wrinkles in the neck that come from spending hours looking down, scrolling through our phones.
At Kaia Earth, we don’t preach anti-aging; aging is a natural part of life, we’re just here to help you do it gracefully. The skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the skin on your face, so it needs to be cared for appropriately.
Kaia Earth’s Intensive Botanical Night Cream is a skincare essential for your face AND your neck. The skin on your neck is delicate, so our Botanical Night Cream consists of high quality, organic, natural ingredients like macadamia seed oil, rose water, almond, shea butter and jojoba oil. Use this cream every night, and pair it with sunscreen in the morning. Our night cream hydrates and helps firm skin, leaving it looking lifted and radiant.
Caring for your neck isn’t a fad; it’s a necessary facet of a good skincare regimen. The neck doesn’t have the same healing properties as other parts of our bodies, so prevention is critical.Here is a link to purchase a jar of Kaia Earth’s Intensive Botanical Night Cream, on sale now!
