If you were to ask me how careful I was about my skin care regime, I'd tell you I was fastidious. I cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day. I apply serums. I mask. Eye cream is a must. I never miss a day, and the last time I fell into bed without taking my makeup off was... well, so long ago I genuinely can't remember.
BUT there is an area I'm guilty of ignoring... and that's my neck.
It's like it doesn't exist in my field of skin care vision. I cleanse away my makeup and stop just under the jawline. I moisturise my face and stop... just under my jawline. It's like there's a blank spot between my head and my shoulders that others can see but I can't.
So how important is it to take care of your neck? I don't even need to hit up my ol' mate Google to know that it's actually really important. The skin on your neck is thin, which means it's more likely to incur damage more easily than other areas of your body. It's also less oily than other areas. Add thin skin, less oil, and the reduction of collagen production as we age? Well, that all adds up to create a prime target for fine lines and wrinkles.
So what's a girl to do?
A) Invest in millions of scarves to hide the lack of care?
B) Become the Queen of Turtlenecks?
C) Simply start taking the extra minute to add a little care to that which props up her head?
I know, I know. 'C' is the correct answer. And really, what's another minute or two of moving your cleanser, serum and moisturiser down a few inches?... and following up with SPF... which I should also be doing more regularly....
Um. Yeah. Awkward. That's a topic for another time!
So, do tell, my beauties... Are you guilty of ignoring your neck? Take the poll, then chat below about the skincare regime you have - or don't have - for your neck...
