  TAKING CARE OF YOUR NECK - by Editor
When talking about cosmetics and beauty treatment, one tends to focus on the face, hair, hands and feet. We tend to believe that if these parts are well-groomed, miscellaneous body parts like the neck, shoulders, arms and elbows can be swept under the carpet like so much dust. But like so many other things in life, it's the little things that count. What's the point of having a perfectly made-up face if the skin on your neck is loose and mottledNULL Hairy arms, black elbows and drooping posture can ruin the effect of the sexiest little halter. So let's take a look at how to take care of your neck, shoulders, arms and elbows so that they don't let you down.

Your Neck

The first thing to do is to stop thinking that your face stops at your chin. Think of your neck as an extension of your face. Whenever you wash your face, wash your neck too. If you use a foundation or a loose powder on your face, remember to apply it to your neck or there will be an unsightly colour difference between your face and your neck. Use upward strokes to apply a nourishing cream on your neck and throat every night.

In order to avoid flabby neck muscles or a double chin, hold your head high with your chin up and slightly forward.

Home Remedies

There are some home remedies to whiten and soften the skin on your neck. You can make a skin tonic by mixing 3 teaspoons of borax powder, 2 tablespoons of glycerine and 2 cups of rose water. You can also apply this tonic on your arms and shoulders. We also have a recipe for an overnight cream for the neck, throat and shoulders. Mix equal parts of lanolin and butter. Beat them thoroughly in a double saucepan over boiling water. Rub this cream over your neck and shoulders in upward motions. Leave it on overnight and wash it in the morning.

Simple Exercises

Here are a few simple exercises that can help you tighten those neck muscles. Breathe slowly and bring your neck down to rest on the chest. Then raise your head slowly and bend it backwards as far as you can. Another exercise is to breathe deeply and turn your neck on your left side as far as you can without moving your shoulders and body. Repeat these exercises atleast ten times daily.
