A younger, smoother neck

The Sun (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY -

THE neck is of­ten over­looked when it comes to body­care and groom­ing – but the skin in this area is par­tic­u­larly sen­si­tive.

“The skin on the neck needs ex­tra at­ten­tion as it is very thin and frag­ile,” ex­plains Bir­git Hu­ber, a voice of the cos­metic in­dus­try. “It is more prone to sag­ging and de­vel­op­ing lines and wrin- kles.”

The cos­met­ics ex­pert there­fore ad­vises us­ing spe­cial care prod­ucts, such as mois­turis­ers and creams, at an early stage. This tight­ens the skin and re­duces wrin­kles and lines in the neck area.

“I would rec­om­mend creams with hy­drophilic sub­stances such as hyaluronic acid or firm­ing mois­turis­ers that pro­vide the skin with nour­ish­ing el­e­ments,” says Hu­ber.

“Mas­sag­ing the skin­care prod­ucts gen­tly into the skin from the bot­tom to the top” does even more good, as this strength­ens the neck mus­cles. Hu­ber also ad­vises women to ap­ply masks on a reg­u­lar ba­sis to com­pen­sate for fat and mois­ture de­fi­cien­cies. – dpa
