Try these tips to keep your neck looking young and beautiful

When you think skincare, you often think of maintaining flawless skin on the face, legs, shoulders and arms. We use face packs and body butters to ensure we have good skin. However, there is one area of the body that can oftentimes go unnoticed- your neck. As you age, you may start to notice this area become darker, as well as spot fine lines and wrinkles. Your neck needs just as much care as the rest of your body. Here are a few ways you can keep your neck looking young and beautiful.

Mashed banana

Make a nice pack using ripe banana and olive oil. Mash the banana and mix it with olive oil to make a paste and then apply it all over your neck. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with plain water. All the fine lines on your neck will start to vanish.

Never let any pack dry on your neck

No matter what skin pack you're using be it a fruit pack or anything made of natural ingredients, just make sure not to let it dry and form cracks. It'll end up soaking all the moisture out of your skin and will make it dry.


04/8Exfoliate your neck

Exfoliate your neck

Use a scrub on your neck to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities. Just scrub in upward motions and be very gentle. Do not scrub for more than 5 minutes or you could damage your skin. And it would be best if you could use a DIY scrub instead of a store-bought one.


05/8Neck massage

Neck massage

A neck massage may feel good, but you want to make sure you are moving in the right direction. Massaging your neck the wrong way could cause damage to the skin. The skin in this area is fragile, so you need to be careful. Move your palm on the neck in vertical movements. Avoid a neck massage that involves circular motions.


06/8Use nourishing oils

Use nourishing oils

You can improve the look and texture of your neck by using nourishing oils. However, all oils won't help you achieve a youthful-looking neck. Only use pure oils that are not too heavy on your neck. Almond oil, chamomile oil, eucalyptus oil, and rose oil are some options you can try. Even though coconut oil is heavy, you can mix it with some water and then apply it on your neck if there is no other option.

Use face packs and masks on your neck

Face packs and masks are a great way to maintain the health of your skin and provide it with nourishment. The next time you apply a DIY mask on your face, make sure to apply it on your neck too. If you are making a homemade pack, add loads of fruits like avocados and bananas. A simple neck pack you can try is one with banana and olive oil. This combo could help reduce the fine lines on your neck.


08/8Spa treatment

Spa treatment

An at-home beauty routine has amazing benefits. However, indulging in a spa treatment just for your neck now and again can also be helpful. A neck massage by professional can help you relax and treat pain. You can also try spa polishing and smoothing treatment for the neck to give it that extra bit of TLC.
