Why Moisturizing Your Neck is as Important as Moisturizing your Face
Bear with me. I’m sure we’ve all heard about the importance of keeping your face moisturized (especially during these upcoming dryer winter months), but your neck? That sounds strange.
Believe it or not, studies are showing that your neck needs to be moisturized just as much if not more than your face in order to keep the skin happy and healthy. Keep reading to learn about products and a full-proof method that will help keep your face and neck soft and moisturized.
What Are the Benefits?
Whether we realize it or not, the skin on our neck is actually far thinner than our face and oil-free. This is due to a different cell composition.
A dermatologist named Dr Dendy Engleman says “Neck skin is different. The dermis is thinner and more prone to wrinkling. When you don’t have a thick dermis, there isn’t as much collagen in the skin, and all the support to keep it from wrinkling.”
So essentially, since your neck skin is thinner, it will be more prone to wrinkling unless you provide it with some back up.
With these colder winter months coming, scarves and turtlenecks are also going to become more popular attire.
But guess what? Your neck won’t thank you for it unless you are moisturizing it. Since it can’t self-moisturize with natural oils, rubbing clothes and scarves can cause irritation and breakouts on the dryer skin around your neck.
Instead of sacrificing your warmth and comfort this winter, just give your neck a helping hand by keeping it moisturized.
A Good Regiment
Well, you might say, that’s all well and good, but how do I keep the skin on my neck moisturized without causing a break out?
We have some Rooted for Good products that when used at the right time of day can help keep your skin moisturized without making everything oily.
1) Renew Cream:
Our handmade 2oz all-natural moisturizing cream is the Bee's Knees! It can be used daily on the face, lips, hands, & body! Extremely moisturizing, nourishing & healing but still lightweight enough for everyday use! It does wonders to hydrate, heal, and smooth skin.
This cream is ideal for all skin types & especially mature, inflamed, and dry skin types. This would be a great product to put on your neck at night for a deep moisturizing treatment before bed.
Our handmade 2 oz Rejuvenate Serum is the perfect lightweight moisturizer for day or night skin rejuvenation. Made with cold pressed Rose Hip Oil & Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, it works to hydrate your skin while improving texture, reducing inflammation, aid in collagen production & impart skin loving vitamins.
This oil is ideal for those with normal, oily or sensitive skin types. Since it’s a lighter weight than the renew cream, I would recommend applying this to your neck in the morning, prior to going about your day, as it soaks in a little better.
Using these two products at different times each day and night will help keep the skin around your neck moisturized and healthy – keeping you looking younger and full of life.
Go ahead and treat yourself. Your skin will thank you!
