Skin care products focused specifically on the neck and décolleté area
We’ve all heard the warning from generations past: Don’t forget your neck and décolleté! We’ve further all seen the evidence of a beautifully preserved face only to glance down and view the ageing, sun–damaged décolleté.
Our serums, moisturisers, masks and other correctives are layered religiously on our faces, however our necks and delicate chest areas to only treated to whatever is left over from the product just applied.
Is it beneficial to use a separate formulation for our neck and décolleté? Lately there seems to have been a move in the skincare industry on products focusing specifically on the neck and décolleté area – one of the most neglected areas on the body – but can they really make a difference? Are they worth the extra time and money? We at DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care believe the answer to be a resounding YES! The correct usage of product is key for success. All correctives should be applied to a thoroughly cleansed skin, allowing for improved absorption of actives into the skin. Furthermore, patting of product onto the skin will not provide the necessary uptake by the skin. Rather, all products should be suitably worked into the skin using light friction movements. This ensures that you will obtain the best results from your products.
The skin on the neck and décolleté is thin, sensitive and frequently shows signs of redness, irritation, sagging and pigmentation. As such, products formulated for the neck and décolleté will be focused on the improvement of the above mentioned concerns with a combination of active ingredients formulated for their result-driven capabilities.
Effective neck and décolleté creams will contain ingredients that stimulate collagen production whilst improving healthy cell renewal. Ingredients to look out for include;
Vitamin A Propionate revitalizes and re-educates the skin to improve skin functioning whilst improving age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Science has confirmed that vitalisation of the skin is possible within one year of consistent nightly application of Vitamin A Propionate.
Vitamin C and Vitamin E will protect the skin on the neck and décolleté from free radical damage as evidence suggests an integral role for topically applied Vitamins offering protection from perioxidation, photoageing, and UV-induced damage. These well reputed anti-oxidant boosting ingredients provide the skin with advanced protection against free radical attack, whilst improving a variety of skin care concerns.
Peptides exist in many forms and are essential to the skins growth and repair – critical in providing the skin with building blocks to restore a youthful appearance. A variety of peptides are utilised within the DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care range for their collagen boosting and skin repairing benefits.
DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care makes use of the following products within the range, containing these key ingredients;
An active peptide concentrate, working to improve cell-to-cell communication within the skin, signalling the fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin production. Skin firmness is restored to the neck and décolleté, while an increase in dermal healing is noted due to the incorporation of many key ingredients including Siegesbeckia Orientalis, Vitamin A Propionate and Palmitoyl tripeptide -5, leaving the skin revitalised and balanced.
This scientific formulation includes Ferulic Acid, noted as a potent “barrier” against the damaging effects of UV radiation. Anti-oxidant protection has further been boosted by the addition of high-potency Vitamin C, bringing about effective skin lightening benefits while the addition of Vitamin E assists as an anti-inflammatory, reducing erythema and skin redness whilst improving skin moisturisation benefits.
Daily use of this skin brightening, anti-ageing booster offers remarkable anti-oxidant protection against the free-radicals that leads to skin ageing, working to brighten the skin as well as helping to improve cellular renewal. DermaFix Ferulic + C + E may be used after thorough cleansing, before application of any additional products within the DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care range.
Rich in tetra peptides, noted for their ‘flash lifting effect’, DermaFix Collagen Conformer accelerates the restructuring of the dermis with an immediate tightening effect being clearly visible on application. This anti-ageing corrective focuses on skin showing signs of sagging and lack of firmness, so often evident on the neck and décolleté area.
In addition to the above-mentioned products, DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care recommends the daily application of a high protection UVA/UVB sunscreen such as DermaFix DermaShield SPF40/SPF50. Damaging UVA rays are directly responsible for the premature signs of ageing so protection of the neck and décolleté area is essential.
