Our necks show signs of ageing 20 times faster than our faces - I remember a Science teacher in secondary school telling us that and making a mental note to always use my skincare products on my neck (I have always been a beauty junkie!). I didn't always follow through with this intention but after turning 30, I made more of an effort to pay attention to my neck. Admittedly, I didn't always use my products all the way down to my décolletage but it is something I try to do more consistently these days! I have tried some specific neck products over the years and apart from one (Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream), I found that most pilled, which was uncomfortable. Instead, I just used my usual acids/serums etc on that area. However in an advent calendar last year, I received a sample pot of PRAI Ageless Throat & Décolletage Cream and I could see a difference in the skin on my neck pretty quickly and I was converted. Since then, I have also added the PRAI Ageless Throat & Décolletage Serum to my routine and I now don't see myself ever being without this duo.
The skin on our neck is quite fragile, with fewer sebaceous glands than in the face - couple that with the effect of UV damage and the fact that we often neglect this area, we really do notice the signs of ageing there more quickly than on our face. Nowadays, we also have the issue known as tech-neck as we spend a lot of time looking down at our phones etc. As we age, the skin on the neck area can sag and look crepey but, thankfully, although we cannot turn back the hands of time, we can improve the appearance of the skin in this whole area with the right products.
PRAI Ageless Throat & Décolletage Serum contains 120ml of product and is housed in a tube with a three rollerball head - this is really convenient for massaging the product into the skin (in an upwards motion as we're trying to defy gravity!). This serum is packed with ingredients that encourage collagen production to strengthen the skin, whilst also improving its elasticity. It also helps to protects the skin's barrier function, protects against damage from free radicals and increases moisture levels in the throat and décolletage area. I use this both morning and night and, honestly, improvements can be seen within a week.
Of course, you can use any moisturiser over it but I have seen great results from pairing it with PRAI Ageless Throat & Décolletage Cream. This cream is packed with hyaluronic acid, oils, shea butter (which I can't use on my face but from my chin down, there is no issue and I cannot figure out why!) and mulberry, saxifrage and grape seed extracts. This combination might sound quite rich but the texture of the cream is actually quite light so it layers over the serum without any pilling. Again, within a week, results can be seen in the form of supple, strong and bouncy skin.
I honestly cannot rave about these products enough and they are priced quite reasonably because a little goes a long way with both. If the appearance of your neck is starting to bother you, I urge you to give them a try! You won't regret it!
