One of the very first signs of aging is loose jowls and sagging skin caused by loss of tone. We call it the dreaded ‘turkey neck’ – a decidedly unglamorous term for the wrinkled, sagging skin under the chin and around the neck.
Many women turn to procedures like face and neck-lifts to rectify this unsightly sign of their aging neck. But instead of turning to invasive procedures with varying outcomes, why not give your skin the nutrients it needs to rejuvenate and replenish – to heal itself from within?
The number one cause of sagging facial skin is the loss of collagen, which gives your skin its elasticity.
Sagging and loose facial skin is exasperated if your skin is dry and dehydrated – so before you undergo the knife, let’s take a look at some key ingredients that can heal, restore and revitalize the skin around your lower face and neck.
Growth factors are natural substances made by skin cells to maintain its health and vitality. It’s their job to support the repair of damaged skin, provide firmness and elasticity while helping to maintain the skin’s protective barrier.
Aging and sun-damaged skin need growth factors to help nourish, heal, and repair, but over time your cells make fewer and fewer growth factors. So, in order to help your skin heal and rejuvenate, it’s important to regularly use skincare products with a high concentration of growth factors.
Another essential ingredient in fighting against aging and sagging skin are peptides. Peptides are the building blocks of proteins like collagen, elastin, and keratin which make up the foundations of your skin. Peptides are short chains of amino acids and are responsible for your skin’s texture, strength, and resilience.
As you get older the production of these essential peptides slows, causing your skin to lose its firmness and allowing for wrinkles to appear. Skincare products which include peptides trigger your skin cells to start creating collagen and elastin – helping your skin rejuvenate.
Sea Kelp is an amazing natural ingredient that has numerous benefits to your skin, from reducing redness to calming and soothing the skin – Sea Kelp is one of the most powerful natural ingredients to have in any skincare formula.
Sea Kelp is rich in antioxidants that help fight against disease-causing free radicals caused by sun damage. These same antioxidants protect your skin and help slow down the signs of aging.
Due to its high iodine content, skincare products with Sea Kelp extract are perfect for anyone with dry, flaky patches of skin. This humble weed of the sea is mineral and antioxidant-rich and is known to help with softening, hydrating, and helping your skin retain its moisture – making sure it stays hydrated for longer.
Sea Kelp has anti-inflammatory properties and contains minerals that penetrate the skin and remove toxins, banishing redness leaving your skin tone even and balanced.
Collagen is the most common protein found in your body – it’s in your skin, bones, and makes up the connective tissue and ligaments in your joints. Most of the protein in your skin is collagen as your skin is made up of 75% collagen.
As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down and the production of collagen slows down too – so for beautiful skin, it’s imperative to replace your naturally produced collagen with pharmaceutical-grade biologics.
Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that has gone through a chemical reaction with water. So not only does it nourish dry, dehydrated skin, it also helps boost your skin’s elasticity as well.
Future-proofing your skin
Rehydrating your skin and boosting your skin’s essential protein production doesn’t mean you have to opt for invasive surgery.
By using a topical cream that penetrates to the deepest levels – packed full of proteins, peptides, growth factors, sea kelp and hydrolyzed collagen – you can restore your skin’s health, slow the signs of aging, and heal visible signs of sun damage.
By applying the right products every day - after a thorough cleaning with a hydrating cleanser, you get healthy, tight skin - banishing any signs of the dreaded ‘turkey neck’!
