The neck is one of the most neglected areas of the skin when it comes to skincare pampering and yet it also one of the areas of the body that gives away your age. I’ve just celebrated my birthday and knowing that I’m now another step towards the big 40 is making me all jittery. As we age, our collagen production slows down and as a result, the monsters of aging such as wrinkles, sagging and lines start to show on our neck and décolletage.
That is a photo of my neck and décolletage, I guess the more obvious lines are caused from constantly looking down at my gadgets (Mobile, iPad & Laptop etc). And since I can’t turn back the hands of time, the least I could do is to take better care of my neck. So I tried out the NeoStrata Triple Firming Neck Cream.
This was the lovely parcel I received from Phytomer to try out.
Presenting the Souffle Marin Energizing Oxygenating Serum.
In 1972, PHYTOMER invented marine cosmetics: a new form of skincare that offers the best of the sea to your beauty regime.
Marine skincare sounds interesting and this must be my first marine skincare product. PHYTOMER draws the most precious ingredients from the sea with its star ingredient; a worldwide exclusive called the OLIGOMER. This is a sodium-reduced seawater concentrate. It is all natural, containing all active ingredients of seawater with 104 trace elements that necessary for the balance and vitality of the skin.
How often have you heard or read about the neck being one of the most neglected areas of the face and how many of you have actually put in more effort to take care of the neck? I’ve been procrastinating till lately, I noticed that the lines around my neck seem more noticeable in photos. Perhaps I’m overreacting but I guess it won’t hurt to start early.
Apart from the neck, the first signs of aging often appear in other neglected areas such as the eyes and back of hands too. The appearance of wrinkles are often a sign of lack of moisture. So it’s essential to also extend your moisturizer application down your neck.
