Why This Year is the Year of the Neck

Why This Year is the Year of the Neck

It’s no wonder that this year is predicted to be the year of the neck. We have always tended to concentrate on our faces and our necks are often a forgotten after thought. But because our necks can really show signs of ageing, they should be a high priority along with our faces. At Nakin we recommend applying the same products to our necks as to our faces, and just seeing this area as an extension of our face. So when using our natural anti-ageing face products you can apply them to both the face and neck, to give the plant powered nutrition to both areas. Keep reading to find out why we need to look after our neck just as well as we look after our faces.

Why Our Neck Deserves the Same Care as Our Face

As a society, we are becoming more and more aware of the importance of taking care of our skin. We invest in high-quality products, follow rigorous skincare routines, and religiously wear sunscreen to protect our faces from wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of ageing.

But while we focus so much on maintaining a beautiful and youthful complexion, we often overlook the neck area. It is a common misconception that the neck is not as prone to ageing as our face, but in reality, it can show signs of ageing just as much or even more.

How Our Neck Shows Signs of Ageing

The skin on our neck is actually thinner than the skin on our face, making it more susceptible to damage from the sun, pollution, and other environmental factors. It also has fewer oil glands, which means it produces fewer natural oils to keep it hydrated and supple.

Moreover, our necks are constantly exposed to movements and postures that can cause wrinkles and sagging over time. Looking down at our phones or computers for extended periods, for example, can lead to "tech neck," a term used to describe the wrinkles and folds that form on our necks due to these repetitive actions.

Why We Need to Look After Our Neck

Apart from aesthetic reasons, there are also health concerns associated with neglecting our necks. The skin on our neck can develop skin cancer just like any other part of our body, so it is essential to protect it from harmful UV rays.

Additionally, our necks are connected to vital structures such as the spine and nerves that control movement and sensation in our upper body. Neglecting our necks can lead to tension headaches, neck pain, and even posture-related issues. Exercise methods like Pilates are great for keeping our neck flexible and toned.

How To Care for Your Neck

Now that we understand the importance of taking care of our necks, it is time to incorporate it into our skincare routine. Here are some tips to help keep your neck looking and feeling its best:

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 on your neck every day, even if you are not spending a lot of time outdoors.
  • Cleanse, treat and moisturise your neck with our natural skincare just as you would your face, as your neck will benefit from the natural high-quality ingredients.
  • Consider incorporating neck-specific exercises into your daily routine to help improve muscle tone and prevent sagging.
  • Avoid constantly tilting your head downward, especially for extended periods, to prevent "tech neck."
  • Pamper your neck with regular massages or treatments designed explicitly for this area to promote blood flow and collagen production.

By following these simple tips and making your neck a priority in your skincare routine, you can maintain a youthful and healthy appearance while also preventing potential health issues. Our necks deserve just as much love and care as our faces do. Let's not forget about this often-neglected area and give it the attention it deserves.
