It’s time that your face stopped getting all the attention. Your neck would also benefit from a skin care routine designed to target signs of aging and maintain a youthful appearance. After all, it shows changes like wrinkles, sagging, and sun damage faster than many parts of the body. Here are four products cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Shaun Patel often recommends to patients.
The skin on your neck has fewer oil glands than the skin on your face. That means it’s prone to drying out. It also loses beneficial elasticity and collagen as you age, making it a lot more fragile.
The ZO® Skin Health Firming Serum addresses skin structure and shape. It reinforces skin health by hydrating, improving firmness, and boosting elasticity across all skin types. Best of all, the nourishing formula is mild and lightweight enough to use on sensitive areas of your neck.
Growth Factor Serum
Growth factors are proteins that communicate messages and signal cell activity. They can tell cells to do many things, like ramp up collagen and elastin production or increase blood flow.
The idea behind using products with growth factors is to restore the signals that support healthy skin. Layer the ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Serum over the Firming Serum at night for best results. It’s a lightweight gel formula that can help minimize any unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Unprotected sun exposure is the number one cause of skin aging. It damages the skin on a cellular level and causes changes such as wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin texture.
For those reasons, it’s crucial to include sunscreen in your morning skincare routine. ZO Skin Health offers a variety of formulas that you’ll love to apply, including sunscreen and primer hybrids, as well as tinted sunscreen powders you can easily brush on throughout the day.
Retinol is one of the most used and most studied anti-aging ingredients. It’s a vitamin A derivative that boosts skin cell turnover to clear pores and increase collagen production.
You can take your anti-aging neck skin care routine to the next level with a low concentration retinol. However, you should only use retinol products under the advisement of a doctor.
