In honor of Thanksgiving come up, let’s talk about our own version of the “turkey neck”! The neck is one of the main body parts that show our age. This often neglected area often does not any TLC until late in the game.
What are the signs of an aging neck?
*crepiness (bumpy & uneven texture with fine lines, like crepe paper)
*rough texture (common to aging skin in general, but especially common on the neck)
*droopiness (gives the nickname “turkey neck” because the neck may resemble a turkey’s wattle)
What can I do about it?
To make a noticeable change to the neck area, a neck lift is often the main option. BOTOX & fillers are sometimes used as well, depending on your specific needs & skin. If you do not want to do something as drastic as a neck lift, we recommend using a neck firming product.
The recommended product is Nectifirm, a cream designed specifically for targeting turkey neck and other signs of aging in the neck and décolleté area. Nectifirm tightens the droopy/wrinkly skin, smoothes & evens out skin texture & evens out skin tone. You can find out more about Nectifirm on the official site (http://www.nectifirm.com/). To purchase, visit our Products Page (http://www.beverlyskin.com/products/additional-skin-care-options/nectifirm)
While Nectifirm will specifically target & improve the neck, you can also start using whatever you put on your face on your neck and décolleté. Your anti-aging serums and moisturizers and other “lotions & potions” can also help improve this area. While formulated for the face, these products contain many of the same key ingredients as neck-specific creams (just in different strengths and with different supplementary ingredients) so you will also benefit from this. At the very least, start to make this a habit to avoid the young face-old body paradox.
