The Secret To Using Age-Defying Ingredients On Your Neck

Posted by JQ on Nov 8th 2021

Hey Beautiful! 

As we age and have hormonal fluctuations, our skin can become sensitized and the neck area can be more vulnerable. This happens because the skin on your neck area is thinner than your face, making it more susceptible to signs of aging.

The biggest secret of all when it comes to your neck is that there is no secret. Don't fall for the hype that you have to spend hundreds of dollars on a separate neck cream. Instead, I want you focus on the key skincare ingredients we discuss here and simply use them on your neck and chest, too. 

Let's dive in! 

Topical antioxidants like Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid help neutralize and reduce oxidative stress on the skin which prevents damage.  In example, our Vitamin C + Correcting Serum is the perfect addition to your anti-aging neck routine because it includes Ferulic Acid that also helps stabilize the Vitamin C so that you can get the most out of your routine. Like your face, we recommend using it under our Whipped Olive Face Butter to help lock the moisture in.

Locking moisture in is important because as we age we also lose moisture, like the Hyaluronic Acid our body normally produces. This, coupled with the loss of collagen can lead to signs of pre-mature aging. 

During the day, don't forget to wear sunscreen on your neck, too, like our 2-in-1 luxurious moisturizer and sunscreen, The Good Sunscreen, because SPF is your number one anti-aging ingredient to prevent signs of pre-mature aging.

One tip about your neck area is that because it’s thinner it may be more prone to dryness and irritation so when using actives, like Retinol it’s a good practice to alternate them at night with a good moisturizer so that the area doesn’t become more dry. So instead of every night, try using your Retinol every second or third night on the neck area. 

Another way to avoid irritation when using Retinol is to sandwich it between moisturizing agents that will prevent irritation from occurring. We’ve solved this problem by incorporating nourishing butters into our Advanced Retinol Night Creme so that it not only saves you time but it also saves you money!

As with all of our products, we design them with mature, sensitive skin in mind. If you feel your skin is too sensitive for any actives but you’d really like to benefit from them, it may be the time to just focus on balancing and restoring your skin for now so that you can possibly tolerate other ingredients like this in the future.

At the end of the day, it’s all about respecting where you’re at in the process and creating a healthy environment for your skin’s barrier to thrive and protect you from future damage. 

Remember, the more you know the more you glow~ 

With love,
