One of the most popular sayings in the skincare world these days is “Don’t forget your neck!” Many people have gotten really good at sticking to a consistent skincare routine for their face, but many of us forget that the rest of our skin needs just as much TLC and anti-aging care as our face- especially our neck and hands. The skin on our neck and hands ages 7 years faster than the skin on our face, meaning that we’ll start to show wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging on this skin earlier than you’d think.
The skin on your neck is different than the skin on your face. It’s thinner and has a different composition of cells than the skin on your face. When your skin is thinner, it doesn’t have or produce as much collagen as thicker areas, making it more prone to wrinkles and sagging. We talk about how delicate and sensitive the skin around your eyes is- the skin on your neck is just as sensitive and delicate as the eye area.
It’s important to understand the difference in your neck and face when it comes to creating a skincare routine. The products you use on your face may not always be suitable for use on your neck, especially if your goal is anti-aging. Just like you target your eye area or specific skin concerns, you’ll want a product that specifically targets and is formulated for your neck. Enter Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm.
Nectifirm is a customer favorite that works to lift, firm, and smooth the neck, décolletage, and jaw area. It comes in two varieties: Nectifirm Original and Nectifirm Advanced. Both formulas contain peptides and antioxidants. However, Nectifirm Advanced uses eight different peptides, compared to five in the original formula. These distinctive peptides work to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin, while antioxidant technology helps the skin to improve its natural antioxidant system and prevent future signs of aging on the neck.
The biggest difference between Nectifirm and Nectifirm Advanced is that the advanced formula really focuses on the microbiome of your skin. The microbiome is the “community” of healthy bacteria that live on your skin that works to keep your skin healthy, balanced, and beautiful. When the microbiome is out of wack, it leaves your skin vulnerable to sun damage, environmental stress, and can affect your skin’s natural anti-aging processes. Nectifirm Advanced utilizes the power of the skin’s microbiome in conjunction with other ingredients in the formula to maximize your body’s natural mechanisms, leading to brighter, firmer, and more even skin on the neck area. In addition, the ingredients in Nectifirm Advanced target the adipose tissue in the neck, meaning that triglycerides (which make fat cells) essentially shrink the cells, firming the skin and promoting a smoother neck.
So, which Nectifirm formula is best for you? If you’re young and don’t currently show many signs of aging on your neck, or are new to the anti-aging game, the original Nectifirm formula is your go-to. In a clinical study, Nectifirm showed an improvement in the appearance of neck sagging and crepey skin in 98% of subjects. 94% of subjects saw an improvement in the lifting of their jawline, and 100% of subjects showed improvement in the appearance of sun damage. With consistent use, you’ll see your neck and jawline firm up, smoother and less crepey skin, and an improved appearance of sun damage.
If you’re older or have more advanced aging, Nectifirm Advanced is your best option. Its formula will combat more advanced signs of aging on the neck, helping to improve the appearance of wrinkles and photodamage. It also helps to reduce the appearance of adipose tissue and rough skin. In a clinical study for Nectifirm Advanced, 97% of subjects saw improvement in radiance of the jawline, 94% saw an improvement in neck firmness, and 97% of subjects showed an improvement in the texture of the skin.
Always remember to put at least SPF 50 sunscreen on your neck and face every day to help prevent aging. Follow the same rules you do for your face for your neck, including being gentle, giving it a good cleanse, and providing it with the care it needs to prevent damage, aging, and irritation.
