When it comes to skincare we often focus all of our attention on the face and neglect our neck and décolletage. However, just like our face, this skin is also subject to visible aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and dehydration. AT BIOEFFECT we always direct the importance of ensuring that you massage your serum and moisturizer down the neck and chest.
What Happens to the Skin on Our Neck as We Age?
As we get older, our skin starts to lose collagen resulting in decreased skin volume, loss of firmness and thinner and drier skin. Whilst we can’t change the way our skin ages due to genetics, we can work to protect our skin from lifestyle and environmental effects. Sun damage from UV radiation, urban pollution and more increasingly “tech neck”. Tech neck is the name given to the fine lines and wrinkles that form on our neck and chest as a result of constantly looking down at our phones. It allows more creases to form in the skin which deepen as we age, and the skin thins and loses its elasticity and plumpness.
3 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Neck and Décolletage
1. At BIOEFFECT we pride ourselves on creating effective skincare formulations that give back to the skin what it had once lost. Choose our award-winning EGF Serum which contains our hero ingredient Barley EGF. It is a moisture-binding and skin-rejuvenating protein, that helps support the skin’s natural collagen production and is essential for keeping skin looking smooth, healthy, and youthful. Over time, repair, plump, and diminish the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles. On freshly cleansed, damp skin, apply 2-4 drops of the EGF Serum to the face and massage it down the neck and décolletage to ensure all of your skin is benefiting from this serum’s proven anti-aging properties.
2. In your morning skincare routine, follow up with our Hydrating Cream to smooth and firm the skin on the neck and chest. Apply in gentle sweeping motions. This lightweight yet creamy formula suits skin all year around and won’t feel sticky on the skin underneath clothes. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Icelandic water, and Barley EGF, this soft moisturizer helps to recharge the hydration and nourishment of the neck’s thinning skin.
3. During the warmer months or when your skin is feeling flushed, pat a layer of the EGF Essence onto the neck and chest to cool and soothe the skin. Its super light watery consistency absorbs quickly, drawing hydration deep into the skin. We recommend pairing it with the EGF Serum to really get the most effective EGF treatment to firm and slow down the aging of the skin on the neck and chest.
How to Apply Skincare to the Neck and Décolletage
Don’t neglect the neck during both your morning and evening skincare routine. Always take your skincare down to the décolletage - including SPF!
Be gentle. The skin on our neck is much thinner than our face so be careful not to tug and pull the skin as you apply your essence, serum, and cream.
Upward motions towards the chin and ears works best to avoid pulling the skin.
