Take a moment to think about your skin care routine. Maybe it isn’t much — just a quick scrub in the shower and some lotion once a day. Maybe it is quite involved, with multiple steps every morning and evening. But if you are like most people, there is something you are forgetting.
While we scrub, tone and pamper our faces, our necks are typically left untouched. But if you are planning to get a neck lift, one of the keys to prolonging your results is to add a quality skin care regimen for your neck into your daily routine. Below are the steps you should incorporate into your skin care routine before and after your neck lift.
When it comes to caring for your skin, don’t stop at your face; your neck needs pampering, too.
Exfoliating your neck helps with cell turnover and stimulating collagen production, both of which help to keep your skin looking young. Because the skin on the neck is sensitive to pulling and tugging, try exfoliating with a gentle hydroxy acid cleanser that’s right for your skin type instead of harsh scrubs.
Anti-aging serums are ideal for the skin on your neck, helping to address lines and dark spots. Products with peptides and epidermal growth factors can deliver excellent results. You can also work with a dermatologist to select the products that best meet your needs.
We all know we should apply sunscreen before going outside, but most stop at just the face. However, if your face is exposed, your neck surely is, too — especially the back of your neck. Apply sunscreen every day to your face, neck and upper chest.
While a neck lift can make a significant difference in your appearance, the results must be maintained. To learn more, schedule a consultation with Dr. Chang online or by calling 410-740-9330.
