You probably thought it was bad enough for you when you noticed you had dark under-eye circles and facial wrinkles, but now sagging neck skin can make it even harder to look younger. Makeup or eye creams can help to hide wrinkles and puffiness, but sagging skin is another matter entirely.
You can work to firm up your sagging skin without having any cosmetic surgery performed. You will be pleased to learn about better ways to firm up that loose skin. Check the ingredients of the creams you want to use on your neck, to make sure they are natural.
You may wonder what causes your skin to sag. As it ages, the surface of your skin becomes damaged, due to years of exposure to extreme temperatures, wind and sunlight. This is especially true if you work outdoors.
Your skin will fight this damage as long as it can, but as you age, the fighting gets weaker, and skin begins breaking down. This happens most often to those whose skin is lacking in proteins and fatty acids. Losing elastin and collagen also leads to sagging skin, since skin needs those to help it keep the fibers of your skin tightly together.
If you’ve tried chemical treatments to get rid of your sagging neck skin, you may have found them unable to fully repair the skin. Natural products get better consistent results. These ingredients include honey, passion fruit, avocado, Jojoba and other natural products. These ingredients can help in the rejuvenation of your collagen, which in turn allows your skin to become more elastic again. Using natural products will often give you longer-lasting results, as well.
Keep out of the sun as much as you can, to protect your skin, and wear a light bandana or scarf if you need to. Exercising on a regular schedule can also help to defeat sagging neck skin. You can do various exercises for your neck that will help tighten the skin.
A natural cream will help you get rid of sagging neck skin, and moisturize your skin cells while it works. Any product that aids in the new growth of elastin and collagen will give your skin the weapons it needs to fight back against wrinkles.
Anti-aging and anti wrinkle night creams are also beneficial for removing or reducing sagging skin on your neck. Many of these products are formulated for the face, but you can use them on your neck, as well. Shea Butter and vitamin E, among other ingredients, can stimulate new fiber and new cell production.
Your body makes new fibers with elasticity on a continuous basis, to replace the fibers that become damaged. These fibers come from amino acids, found in foods that you eat which are high in protein. Getting enough vitamin C and protein can help keep you and your skin healthier.
The skin’s most natural moisturizer is water, so drink plenty of it. Skin cells that are well-hydrated are firm and tight. Sagging neck skin can be symptomatic of a serious problem with dehydration. You don’t even have to be thirsty to drink. Drinking water all day long will help with your overall health, and the health of your skin, as well.
