Say Bye-Bye To Darkened Neck; Causes, Tips And Tricks To Get Rid Of It

Your unwavering commitment to your skincare ritual is admirable, but have you ever considered extending that regimen to your neck, or does your neck simply fend for itself? Ignoring your neck’s care may lead to issues like uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dark spots lurking around the corner. If you believe that smearing the remnants of your facial products on your neck is sufficient, it’s time to reconsider. Here’s why:

Your neck is distinct from your face, with fewer collagen and oil glands, making it susceptible to problems such as darkening, dryness, and wrinkles. Added to this, the constant downward gaze at your phones doesn’t do any favours for the sagging front. So, your neck does warrant a specialized skincare routine.

That said, we’re not suggesting you invest in an entirely separate set of neck-specific skincare products—definitely not. However, if you’re inclined to pamper your neck with some tender loving care, we’ve got you covered.

Common Causes of a Darkened Neck:

– Prolonged and excessive sun exposure
– Accumulation of environmental pollutants and toxins
– Certain chemicals in skincare products contribute to skin darkening
– Obesity and diabetes
– Fungal infections

How to Care for Your Neck:

Step 1: Cleansing

A buildup of dirt on your neck can make it look a shade or two darker than your face. To maintain a radiant complexion free from impurities, it’s essential to wash your neck thoroughly with a gentle cleanser.

Step 2: Exfoliation

Once a week, gently exfoliate your neck to remove accumulated dead skin cells. You can either create your homemade scrub using lemon and brown sugar or opt for a mild exfoliator that won’t cause irritation.

Step 3: Hydration

Make sure to moisturize your neck to shield the skin from free radicals and aging. You can also select a formula infused with SPF to protect against damage from unavoidable sun exposure. Remember, your neck deserves a little extra care too.
