It’s a new year and another chance to be our best. For our next guests, their New Year’s resolution was about their necks!
Veda and Cynthia tell The Doctors they are unhappy with the appearance of their necks. They share that they are not pleased with how their neck skin is loose and saggy and they want a solution to help them get firmer and tighter skin.
Dermatologist and No7 spokesperson Dr. Tess Mauricio explains it is common for women over 40 to lose
elasticity muscle, bone and fat under the skin, which can cause face and neck tissue to lose structure. Dr. Mauricio says neck exercises may help, but notes, you may not see the results you want because the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks that help provide structure to the skin, decline over time.
So is a sagging neck inevitable for most people?
Dr. Mauricio explains, "Everyone ages differently because our genetic makeup plays a role, but lifestyle choices are also a factor. There are 3 do’s and don’ts that I always tell my clients. Don't smoke, don’t tan and don’t eat too many unhealthy fats and processed carbs. All of these can contribute to sagging skin. She also notes, "Do moisturize, do apply sunscreen whenever you are outside, and do eat a diet high in antioxidants because they can help maintain skin’s overall health and, most importantly, its elasticity."
Dr. Mauricio recommends No7's Laboratories Firming Booster Serum to Veda and Cynthia, explaining the serum's ingredients will specifically target creepiness and sagging skin. She notes it contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and No7’s patented Matrixyl 3000+ for firming. She says in No7 clinical trials, some participants reported that their skin looked up to 5 years younger in just 12 weeks.
No7 Laboratories Firming Booster Serum is available at Walgreens and Walgreens.com for under $42
