While we pay a lot of attention to our faces, we often ignore or completely forget the neck and chest area and hair as well. Comparatively, the skin on the décolletage, which is the skin stretching from under the chin to the cleavage, is thinner that the skin on the face. This stretch is in fact equally exposed to sun damage and so is your hair, but these areas are unfortunately the most neglected portions of the body. If you ignore these areas, you’ll likely notice damage showing up as broken capillaries, blotchy skin, and scaly patches on the skin and a dry, itchy and dandruff-laden scalp.
The fix is to treat these neglected areas with the same amount of care and attention, which means that anything you apply on your face should be applied to your neck and chest as well. Similarly, you should use effective hair products from conditioners, oil and serum to protect against hair colour loss and damage. Using skin and hair products to cover these neglected yet vulnerable areas ensures holistic skin and hair treatment in the long run.
Going to sleep without washing your face can cause skin concerns. While you may wish to just fall into bed at the end of the day, exhausted and tired, it is important that you wash your face thoroughly to remove any impurities that may have accumulated during the entire day. Debris from makeup, dirt, oils and pollution collect on your skin during the course of the day and clog pores causing skin breakouts. Similarly, dirt from pollution accumulates on your hair and can be the main reason for acne on facial skin areas where the hair touches. This is when you need to use a hair serum to create a protective layer through the day and natural hair products to wash off the dirt, preventing hair damage and hair colour loss.
The question is do you really want all that grease all over your pillowcase? If not, clean up before going to bed to experience freshness and a rejuvenated feel the moment you wake up.
