Body wrinkles prevention: Moisturize without neglecting your neck
If you really value your beauty, never discriminate against your neck. This is because, despite this being parts of your body, the skin on your neck and chest are as delicate as your face. The best way to delay the ageing process is to boost its suppleness. The skin here is very thin and has fewer sebaceous glands, fewer lipids (essential to protect the skin from external factors) and fewer melanocytes (cells that produce the pigment that gives colour to your skin and protects it from sunlight). Your neck needs much attention as your face. If for whatever reason you have been neglecting your neck and chest, it is never too late to start doing the right things that helps in the body wrinkles prevention. You can begin correcting the situation today and doctor Dalal Akoury MD President and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center will be there to take you all through step by step.
Cleanse your neck and décolletage both morning and night. After the morning cleanse, apply moisturizer, using an upward, circular motion from under your chin to the top of your cleavage. You might discover that your neck skin requires a richer product than the one you use on your face. Massage it in, to help it penetrate the skin and to boost the circulation in that area. And in the evening, apply anti-ageing cream, either the same one you use on your face or one specifically for the neck, depending on how rich your facial product is. Most night creams now contain vitamins and antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C and E and beta carotene, which are powerful anti-ageing ingredients.
Exfoliate the neck once a week: Exfoliate the neck and chest area at least once a week to keep the skin free of in-built dirt and dead skin cells. This area is delicate, so avoid products that contains sharp particles, and use a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliants.
Keep your body hydrated: Because our skin loses its ability to retain moisture as we age, it is important to keep hydrated from within, by drinking water throughout the day and getting hydration from fruit and vegetables.
Eat oily fish and take a fish –oil supplement: Nutrition rich in anti-oxidants like Omega-3 acids mainly available in fish is very important. You will be very surprised how your skin will be rejuvenated by boosting collagen production. You may also consider taking a portion of salmon or mackerel weekly and not forgetting pomegranates, acai berries, blueberries and green tea which will also help you stock up on antioxidants.

Smoking damages collagen and lip pursing and squinting while inhaling creates wrinkles around your mouth and eyes, and more wrinkles in the delicate skin directly under your chin. Besides that you can do other things like sleeping on the right pillow and doing neck exercise frequently. Finally, get help from the experts where is necessary.
