Live Life Lifted: Why (& How) You Need Anti-Aging Skincare For Your Neck + Chest
Where does your complexion really begin and end?
Robin’s advice: start including your neck and chest when you think about caring for your complexion.
This is especially important starting around age 40, which is when skin usually begins to show signs of aging.
You might be surprised to learn that the skin between your jaw and the bra-line is just as delicately thin as the eye-area, so it needs the same kind of care to stay firm, fresh and smooth.
That’s why Robin created Live Life Lifted Firming Neck & Chest Cream as an overnight treatment designed to fight the signs of aging, even in your most plunging neckline!
“Why does my neck show signs of age? My face looks younger!”
Fret not, Robin to the rescue!
The answer may be that you’ve been using great skincare products from your hairline to your chin and stopping there.
Another breakthrough ingredient for intercepting the signs of aging is retinol.
Robin recommends a retinol serum as nightly treatment once or twice a week to keep skin vibrant and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This powerful derivative of vitamin A messages skin-cells to produce more collagen and less melanin, so skin stays firm and free of dark spots.
Here are three more tips for keeping the skin on your neck fine line-free.
TIP 1: Beware of tech-neck!
Repetitive motions like squinting and lifting your eyebrows can break down the smooth surface of the skin.
And now that we spend hours every day looking down into our phones and other devices, the fine skin of the neck area can quickly become creased.
Consider setting your device in a stand that allows you to keep your head and neck in a naturally lifted position.
TIP 2: Soften the impact
Your bed-pillow may be contributing to the fine lines on your chest and neck if you sleep face-down.
The pressure of your body-weight on this delicate area for several hours each night is basically like ironing a crease into a shirt-sleeve, crushing and stretching skin while you sleep.
Here's a tip from Robin: try training yourself to sleep on your back, which takes the pressure off.
If it’s not your natural tendency, try a crescent-shaped travel pillow.
The shape of this type of pillow keeps your head stable and may help you keep from rolling onto your stomach.
Also, a pillowcase made of silk or superfine cotton will also leave less of a lasting impression on your skin—even if you do sleep face-down.
TIP 3: Prevent darkening of the neck and chest
Your neck and upper chest are exposed to UV almost as often as your face.
With this in mind, protect this area every day with a moisturizing sunscreen.
And don’t make the common mistake of spraying cologne at the base of your throat, then going out into the sun.
It’s true that a fragrance intensifies when applied to a pulse-point, but exposing the alcohol and active ingredients in a perfume to UV can cause skin to darken.
Remember that this includes the back of your neck!
Many women put their hair up, then spray their perfume on the nape.
This is an elegant move for an up-do evening, but during daylight hours protect your neck, front and back, from UV damage.
Don’t spray perfume there, and make sure to protect the area with sunscreen.
Apply your fragrance to areas of your skin which usually stay protected from the sun, like inside the fold of the elbow.
Here’s another question from our readers:
“What’s in Live Life Lifted Firming Neck & Chest Cream that makes it so effective?”
Three key ingredients make this night-time treatment a powerful step to keeping your neck and upper chest firm, supple, and smooth.
Jojoba esters: Extracted from the jojoba plant, this ingredient is a natural liquid wax that’s remarkably similar in chemical composition to human sebum.
Jojoba esters can be used as both an emollient and an exfoliant for smoother, firmer skin.
Peptide complex: The peptides in our proprietary peptide complex are messengers that trigger actions in the skin.
The peptides in our Firming Neck & Chest Cream signal skin-cells to initiate production of collagen, so the thin skin of the neck and chest literally grows more dense.
This is a good thing, because a solid foundation of collagen under the epidermis (top layer of skin) helps skin resist wrinkling, and keeps the surface taut and unlined.
Hyaluronic acid: This acid occurs naturally in the human body, and is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in moisture.
As we age, our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid diminish.
Live Life Lifted Firming Neck & Chest Cream replenishes this essential component of youthful skin as a nightly treatment.
While you’re at it, add these energizing antioxidant treatments to your routine to keep your entire complexion supple and glowing:
Face It, You Look Amazing! Revitalizing Serum with ginseng root extract relaxes expression lines, and plumps and hydrates skin.
Hydrating & Firming Sheet Mask with Orchid Stem Cells lifts skin and restores moisture after just one 15—20 minute application. After removing the sheet mask, pat the extra serum into your neck and upper chest to restore firmness!
The thinnest skin on your body is your complexion and on the backs of your hands.
It’s easy to forget that your complexion doesn’t end at your chin!
