The most focused area of the body for beautification treatments is the face. And most of the time people ignore the neck. The skin on your neck becomes wrinkled and thin with age too just like the face.

Platysma –the neck muscles are in fact not attached to the ligaments and bones in our body, so that’s the reason why they become saggy with age.

To prevent this, people apply creams and other products full of chemicals, but just the correct lifestyle, exercise and skin care will help you have a young-looking neck.

We offer some natural ways to have flawless and youthful neck.

Use Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great source of antioxidants. It is especially beneficial to take oral supplements or consume foods rich in vitamin C. Studies show that vitamin C in combination with a SPF moisturizer can boost the effects. Dermatologist Beatriz Molina recommends using a serum that contains L-ascorbic acid for quicker absorption in the skin.

Avoid Long Sun Exposure

Just like with every other part of the body, the skin on your neck can be damaged by longer sun exposure, especially in summer. Never forget to use sunscreens with an SPF no less than 30, preferably with titanium and zinc that can block the UVA/UVB rays.

Regular Exercises

Doing neck exercises is especially beneficial for maintaining young-looking and firm neck. Studies show that people who regularly exercise have more elastic and thicker skin on the neck. Also exercises are beneficial because they improve the circulation of oxygen.

Using Collagen Supplements

Collagen is part of the connective tissues that maintain firmness and renewal of the skin cells. Collagen is essential for skin elasticity. So, it’s really effective to take collagen supplements.

Consume Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids before Bedtime

Make sure to consume foods that are rich in omega-3/omega-6 fatty acids including salmon, avocado, sardines, spinach, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds before bed. Fatty acids are essential for the production of collagen and they also help rebuild the skin cells. Consume these foods approximately 4 hours before sleeping.

Also, consulting a dermatologist is another option regarding this issue.
