¿Cómo evitar los anillos de Venus?

How to prevent Venus rings

By Carmen Navarro

Venus rings are wrinkles that appear on the neck, in the form of circles, which are mainly caused by age.

The appearance of Venus rings is becoming more and more frequent due to our excessive use of new technologies, which force us into awkward postures for hours on end. And let’s not forget that, from 25 years of age onwards, we start to lose collagen and elastin, which exacerbates these marks even more. In this article, we’ll show you how to fight them.

What can you do to fight wrinkles on the neck?

1. It’s easy to forget to treat and care for the areas of the neck and décolleté during your daily beauty routine, and this obviously has an impact on the appearance of Venus rings. After cleansing your face, it’s advisable to massage upwards using a product that nourishes and hydrates the area.

2. With the exception of the age factor, there’s a lot you can actually do about it by being disciplined. Start with skincare. During the day, apply a serum that firms and fights sagging using upward strokes, and always finish with a sunscreen. At night, I recommend a nourishing and firming cream, which helps the skin on the neck and décolleté to recover from the aggressions experienced during the day. In many cases, it can be the same one you use for your face. Make sure it has hyaluronic acid, silica, collagen, vitamin C…

3. From the age of 40 onwards, I would advise using a specific cream to get the best results. For example, there’s ARÛDE ARM&DECOLLETE BALM, a specific product from Montibello for the neck, décolleté and arms. If you’ve got more time, apply a tightening mask that will also help you redensify the area. Bear in mind that the skin is very thin and delicate, with subcutaneous tissue that diminishes with age.

4. Once a week or every 15 days if skin is extremely delicate, perform enzymatic exfoliation that will help you remove impurities and bring vitality. Gently exfoliate to break up the bonds between dead skin cells but without damaging those that are in good condition.

5. And pay careful attention to your makeup. Use your usual foundation all over your face, neck and décolleté to even out your skin tone and camouflage small blemishes; finish by using bronzer powder (or a shade darker than your foundation) on your double chin and neck using a thick brush.

6. Aside from sunscreen, use cosmetics that protect you from the blue light emitted by devices which damage skin. Overexposure to blue light increases the risk of hyperpigmentation, but more than that, it damages the skin’s elasticity. Blue light has the ability to penetrate your skin, even more than UV rays, creating free radicals and thus breaking down cell structures. The most direct and visible consequence is that it decreases the skin’s elasticity and damages its structure.

7. My last piece of advice would be to avoid awkward posturesdisconnecting from and setting aside both time to use technology and tech-free time that will let you avoid such wrinkles.
