If you’ve been fighting facial wrinkles and dark under-eye circles, you’ll be very displeased when you first notice sagging neck skin. Makeup can be used in most cases to help in hiding wrinkles and puffiness, but sagging skin is not as easy to hide.
Firming up your skin to some degree can be accomplished at home, before you determine whether you want any surgical intervention. There are better ways to firm up the skin. Check for the active ingredients of the creams you select, to make sure they are effective and natural.
If you’re wondering what causes your skin to sag, the main issue is the age of your skin, and how much damage it has sustained over the years, from the sun or other sources. If you work outdoors, or spend a good amount of time outside, your neck is exposed to almost as much extreme temperature, sunlight and wind as is your face.
Your skin can fight this damage for years, but when you are aging, the fighting becomes ineffective, and your skin will begin to break down. This happens more often if your skin lacks fatty acids or proteins. Losing your natural elastin and collagen also allows your skin to sag, since it needs these elements to hold the fibers closer together.
If you have had chemical treatments in an effort to get rid of sagging neck skin, you might have discovered that they can’t fully repair the skin. Natural products often get better results. These may include honey, avocado, passion fruit, Jojoba and several other natural agents. These are helpful in rejuvenating your collagen levels. This allows your skin to have more elasticity, like it did when you were young. Natural products may also give you results that last longer.
Stay out of the sun or protect your skin if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Wearing a light scarf or bandana may help keep the sun from further damaging the skin on your neck. Exercising can also help in defeating sagging neck skin. There are various exercises that may help to tighten the skin.
Natural creams will help you to get rid of sagging skin on your neck, and moisturize your skin cells as they work. Products that help your body to produce more elastin and collagen will arm your skin for the fight against wrinkles and lines.
Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle creams to be used at night can be quite beneficial in getting rid of some sagging skin appearance. They may be made for the face, but they are effective on your neck as well.
Shea butter and vitamin E can help to stimulate new fibers and cell production.
When you’re young, your body makes new elastic fibers continuously, to replace those that may become damaged. They are made from amino acids, which can be found in high protein foods. Getting proper amounts of vitamin C and protein may help you keep your body healthier, and along with it, your skin.
The skin’s natural moisturizer is water, and drinking plenty will help your skin. Cells that are properly hydrated are firmer and more tight. Sagging skin may mean you are often dehydrated. Drink water during the day whether you feel thirsty or not. It will help with your overall good health, and the healthy reformation of sagging neck skin, as well.
