During the summer, when I went to get my hair done, there was an older woman sitting next to me getting her hair cut. She was really upset with the hairstylist, screaming that she had cut her hair too short. Since the woman couldn’t speak Spanish and the hairstylist really couldn’t speak English, I intervened, and tried to calm the situation. I then told the woman that I actually loved her hair that length. It was then she whispered in my ear that she liked her hair down to her shoulders because she was really self conscious about her neck area. This woman didn’t seem that old, but then I took a look at her neck and her decolette area I saw that her neck did look a lot older than her face. It was clear to me that she focused most of her anti-aging on her face, and forgotten about er neck and decolette. That is a huge mistake. An aging neck and decolettte can make you look years older. Your neck area has the thinnest skin on your body and is exposed most of the time to damaging UVA and UVB rays . Your neck skin also has less collagen to plump it up, so the skin can begin to sag. Dr Oz says one of the biggest mistakes women do, is not moisturize their neck. So basically girls, you need to protect that neck! Here are some neck creams that you may want to give a whirl.
