Throughout your life, you may have slathered your body with hydrating lotions and dabbed your face with wrinkle creams. In the midst of all this, it's easy to forget your neck, a part of the body most people never really notice until it starts to show signs of aging. Then, it's all you see when you look in the mirror!
The skin on your neck is just as sensitive as the skin on your face, so it suffers the same damage from the sun and will get the same wrinkles and age spots you see on your cheeks and around your mouth and eyes. Prevention.com reports this skin is actually the thinnest on the body, making it even more susceptible to damage.
If you have been overlooking your neck for too long, you don't have to wear turtlenecks every day as penance. There are certain spa products that can smooth wrinkles by promoting the production of collagen. Some, like Elemis Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck and Bust are specially designed for these parts. This product contains padina pavonica, a marine extract that is proven to boost collagen and promote cell renewal.
