I think we are all committed to a great skincare regime that addresses ageing concerns on the face but are we guilty of neck neglection? Look up, look down, look side to side – whether you’re in the office, at yoga or even crossing the road your neck moves constantly and with the amount of time we spend staring at our phones it’s no wonder that even 20 and 30 somethings are noticing more lines, sagging skin and wrinkles in their necks. Trust me ‘age’ is not kind to your neck – creping, jowling, flagging - ladies it’s time to ‘stick your neck out’ because skincare should not stop at the chin. Summer has arrived, cue a summer wardrobe, and a neck and decolletage revelation BUT remember the skin on your face and neck is NOT created equally so regardless of how youthful and dewy your face looks if your neck doesn’t match then you’ve lost the battle.
Decolletage comes from the French word décolleté which literally means ‘bare your neck’ but do you ‘dare to bare’ when it looks like a crumpled piece of crepe paper?
Unlike the skin on your face which is supported by the cushioning of oil production and fat cells, the skin on the neck is very fragile, with little buoyancy from nourishing oil glands, protective melanin pigment or strengthening collagen. And whilst the face is made of many bones and muscles that give structure and support the neck, it has minimal bony structures beside the spine. There’s just one muscle (the Platysma) which over time is subject to continuous contracting, contributing to neck crinkling and sagging, whilst fat pads in the lower face gradually slither from where they’re useful and gather under the chin – aka turkey neck!
If you’re looking for instant lifting, elasticity enhancing, line lessening and superior sculpting then DefiLift 3D Toned Firming Neck and Décolleté Gel is here to fight your corner. This divine age-defying treatment is not only visibly time rewinding BUT also a preventative, so you are NEVER too young to include it into your daily routine. And it has deservedly stolen the spotlight this month as it is featuring as QVC’s July’s SUPERSIZE of the month and what’s more it’s been bestowed a delightful packaging upgrade!
This powerfully performing serum gel goes heavy on hard-hitting innovative ingredients yet feather light on texture and it means business. You don’t even have to limit where you spread it – backs of arms, bust, abdomen, knees – if an area needs tightening, then slather it on! Brimming with hero ingredients including potent Sorghum Bicolor Stalk Juice, which is simply a skin tensor (like ‘facial’ support tights) giving an instant nip and tuck effect whilst skin restoring Valine, an essential amino acid, plays an important role in strengthening the scaffolding and infrastructure restoring skin tension.
Teaming Kappaphycus Alvarezii, a red alga considered a ‘super-food of the sea’ due to its high levels of antioxidants with Caesalpinia Spinosa Fruit a South American shrub known as "Incas green gold” and you’ve got a state-of-the-art double-act to get skin in tip-top smoothing shape. Creating a second skin it prompts an immediate lift to the facial contours whilst steamrolling any etched-in lines, hollows and grooves and the effects last throughout the day.
And whilst we applaud these clinically proven innovative actives for their irrefutable results there's something to be said about sticking with some of the trusty favourites, - enter vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Oil. Both ingredients have long been incorporated into skincare products for their promise to hydrate and protect. A skin-comforting antioxidant, Vitamin E helps to keep the skin's protective wall intact and actually helps seal up little cracks created in the skin's barrier that can cause moisture to escape. And whilst the bold and beautiful Sunflower never fails to put a smile on my face its high level of Linoleic Acid makes it a worthy neck nourisher and complexion smoother.
It’s time to put some energy south of your face and give your neck, décolleté and any other baggy bits a little love and what better way to do it than with our DefiLift 3D Toned Neck and Décolleté Gel – it’s a FIRM yes from me!
