Anti-Aging Neck Care II

Author: Dr. Larita
August 18, 2017

When your neck starts showing signs of age, you might want to give it a special tightening treatment with the following synergistic  blend of essential oils. Use 10 drops of rose, 7 drops clary-sage, 10 drops lemon, and 20 drops carrot essential oil blended well with 1 teaspoon  of evening primrose oil. Gently massage this mixture into the skin and leave it on for at least ten minutes before wiping off the excess oil.

After a long cold winter of wearing turtle-neck sweaters and woolen scarves, the neck will benefit greatly if you slough off dead skin cells, brighten up and tone the neck and prepare it for a treatment oil as discussed in part I of anti-aging neck care. Mix 1 teaspoon of ground almond with 1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil into a paste and rub it all over the neck and chest area in upward movements. Leave this on for 10 minutes then rinse it off with water followed by a rinse with the following tonic water: 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon spring water, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, and 2 drops lemon essential oil. Mix the lemon essential oil with the witch hazel and then blend that with the other ingredients. Rinse most of the paste off with water and then add the vinegar tonic water to the final rinse until all the almond paste is gone. Finish the treatment by massaging the neck with a natural moisturizing cream.


Anti-Aging Neck Care

Have you ever seen a woman whose face was beautiful but when you glanced at her neck, you thought about a turkey? No matter how much make up and concealer is on the face, if you don’t take care of the delicate skin on your neck, it will be like seeing a beautiful flower on a stalk that can not support it. The neck is one of the first places the body begins to show age.  Crinkled skin, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and double chins all lead one to look older even though great care is put into maintaining the good looks of the face. You can try to keep your neck covered with a scarf but that is not practical and, thankfully, the neck responds extremely well to essential oil treatments.

The essential oils to use for tightening the skin on the neck area are rose, geranium, clary-sage, lemon, lemongrass, black pepper, or carrot. Use any one of these oils added to a carrier oil like jojoba, evening primrose, or avocado to begin your treatments.  The neck is a very delicate area and must be cleansed with the same care you use on your face. Add one drop of one of the above essential oils to each 3/4 teaspoon of your usual cleansing cream. Then each night before bed apply the following blend: 8 drops of pettigraine, 3 drops of orange, 10 drops carrot oil, 14 drops palma rosa, and 5 drops of lemon blended well with 3 teaspoons jojoba oil, 2 teaspoons wheatgerm oil, and 2 teaspoons of avocado oil. Leave this on for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess with a tissue before going to bed.


Facelift in a Jar

As I’ve gotten older my skin has lost some of its vibrancy and elasticity, particularly on my face. I want my exterior to look as youthful as I feel on the inside. I visited a dermatologist who suggested all sorts of fillers and plumpers, even though I firmly stated that I didn’t want anything to do with needles or surgery.

I figured there had to be a better solution. I did some digging online and found a wealth of information about the benefits of all natural skin care. These organic remedies aren’t that expensive, so I gave it a shot. I bought a cream comprised of Shea butter, Mango butter, Avocado oil, Grapeseed oil, Vitamin E, and pure Coconut oil. Immediately I saw the benefits: glowing, moisturized skin. I call the product a facelift in a jar!


Essential Oils for Hands

We put makeup on our faces and go to the gym to keep our bodies in shape but if we don’t take care of our hands all of that is a waste of time. The first place to show age spots is your hands and add that to loose wrinkled skin on the backs of your hands and your hands are telling everyone that you are older than your beautiful face looks! If you work with your hands a lot, this stretches the skin even more and everyone exposes their hands to dirt, grease, grime, heavy detergents, and dish soaps etc. everyday. We should wear rubber gloves when we do this kind of work with our hands but most of us don’t bother to do so.

Essential oils can help you keep your hands looking their best. Couple your essential oils with a good hand cream and you’ll have the whole family using your hand cream very quickly. Use any of the following essential oils with your hand cream and your hands will look their best in no time: rosemary, geranium, sandalwood, patchouli, lavender, rose, lemon, lime, or carrot. You might want to price the essential oils first because you don’t have to use an expensive one.

You can also mix the hand cream as you use it by putting some cream in your hand and adding one or two drops of the essential oil of your choice as you go. I like to use geranium usually because it smells so nice but if I have a cut or scrape (I’m a klutz in the kitchen) I often use lavender essential oil. Any of the oils mentioned above will work to make your hands as beautiful as the rest of you.


Fighting Signs of Age

I’ve gotten to that age where my skin, weight, and energy levels don’t bounce back like they used to when I was in my early 20s. It seems like every morning I wake up to find a new wrinkle or line that hadn’t been there when I went to bed. To help fight the signs of aging, I’ve started a new skincare regimen.

For starters, I’ve switched to a gentler cleanser. The cleansers and toners I used as a teenager to ban acne are just too harsh for my older, more fragile skin. I’ve also found the best anti-aging skincare moisturizer and eye cream. I slather them on liberally at night so the nutrients can soak in while the skin naturally goes into repair mode. In the morning, I cleanse my face again and put on a lightweight moisturizer with SPF 15 to protect from sun damage.

The Importance of the Moisturizing Phase

It’s not all that uncommon for people to skip out on the moisturizing phase of skin care, but it’s an important stage to reduce the visible effects of aging. When people age, their skin becomes less hydrated which necessitates the use of anti-aging moisturizers to have healthier skin. In the winter, when skin is at its driest, it’s essential to moisturize on a daily basis. There are hundreds of different moisturizer products available, and choosing the right product can be a challenge.

You don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on your moisturizing products, nor do you want a product that doesn’t work well. Not all moisturizers are created equal, so it’s important to shop around, ask friends, and read customer reviews to find the best products. When you’re using a great moisturizer, you’ll notice an immediate difference in the look and feel of your skin.


How to Treat Wrinkles

Laugh lines are natural, but wrinkles that start making you feel like your skin looks older than you feel are another thing completely!  Here’s how to deal with them:

1.  Sunscreen is the number one way to prevent sun damage and wrinkling.  Apply any time you’ll be spending time outdoors, whether it’s sunny or cloudy, summer or winter.

2.  Vitamin A (Retinoid) creams can increase sun sensitivity, making number one even more important!  Vitamin A stimulates collagen production and stops cells from breaking down further.

3.  Alpha Hydroxy acids exfoliate and increase collagen.  Just remember to be gentle with your skin!

4.  Antioxidants in your food and on your skin are the key to feeling and looking youthful!
