Beauty Tips for Face and Neck

7 Cheap beauty tips for your face and neck

While this entire website is about anti-aging beauty tips for the face and neck, the ones listed here are my personal favorites. You can find a ton of beauty tips online, but how many address the needs of women over 40?

So, I put together a list of my favorites - the quickest, cheapest, and most effective ones I've found over the years. Plus, a few of them offer instant results, who wouldn't like that?

Give a few of these beauty tips a test drive - you might be surprised with your results!

Beauty Tip 1: Hide wrinkles under the eyes

Beauty Tip 2: Hydrating honey mask for dry skin

One of the most inexpensive beauty tips for face, neck and chest is a simple homemade honey mask. Honey is excellent for dry skin. And, it doesn’t get any easier than this one - because you only need one ingredient - Honey.

Honey is cheap and very effective for plumping up parched skin and works well for women and men. The only downside is it's a bit sticky/messy. It's also a natural humectant - which means it helps pull moisture out of the air and into the skin.

Plus, as a side benefit, honey is an anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant - which is fabulous for aging skin.

How:

  • pour few tablespoons of honey into a bowl
  • wrap a towel around your shoulders and massage the honey all over your face and neck
  • sit back and relax for 20 minutes, then rinse off

Bonus Tip: Apply this mask prior to taking a shower. It's easier to rinse it off in the shower.

Beauty Tip 3: Face scrubs

OMG! Love face scrubs! I started scrubbing (i.e. exfoliating) my face when I was 15 years old. Back then, there weren’t many choices, so I settled for a drugstore product called a Buff Puff - a mild abrasive scrubbing pad.

But, these days I like to make my own scrubs which you can tailor it depending on your skin needs. Dry winter weather, add some oils to your scrubs. Hot humid weather, omit oils and just use water to mix with your scrubs.

How:

  • mix  sugar or baking soda with water. If you have dry skin try mixing it with face loving oils like grape seed oil, coconut oil, or even olive oil
  • massage the gritty mixture gently all over your face - don’t forget your neck. Again, doing this before (or even in the shower) is easier and less messy

Women and men will really see results from this beauty tip! The older my skin gets, the more impressed I am with the results of a good exfoliating facial. Note: Since Dove came out with their Body Polish many women have been asking if they can use the Dove Body Polish on their face. The answer is no,  you really shouldn't and here is why...

Bonus Tip: If you're using sugar (not baking soda) - leave the mixture on your face and neck for 5-15 minutes (like a  mask). Sugar naturally contains alpha hydroxy acids which helps breakup the "glue bond" that holds dead skin cells together. This will give you a beautifully smooth complexion in just minutes!

Beauty Tip 4: Self  tanners

Self tanners have been around for years and yet many products tend to leave a weird orange skin color. 

Many women have a hard time finding a sunless tanner that works well with their skin tone. Or some say that self-tanners cause clogged pores or breakouts.

But, this self-tanner is different. For me, this is one of the best (and least expensive) beauty tips for the face, neck, and body that offers almost instant results.

If you've noticed a change in skin tone - more blotchy, spotted or more brown spots. Self tanning is a great option to smooth out your complexion.

Adding a sunless boost of natural color helps hide imperfections like freckles, age spots, and broken blood vessels...All without dangerous sun rays.

How:

  • exfoliated your face well and rinse
  • pat dry your skin well, then apply a light layer of self-tanner cream
  • wash hands well
  • let the self-tanner dry before getting wet or applying makeup

I smooth this anti-aging, vitamin rich cream on my face and body about 2 times a week and it hydrates while helps give my face and body a gorgeous year round glow.

Why a Quality Self Tanner Matters: Many women have told me that drugstore brand self-tanning creams and sprays don't offer the best color result. And I know what they mean. I've been using self tanners for over 30 years and some made my face look dark, but dirty and dull.

If you're very pale consider using a lighter toned tanner and consider and have consider spending a little extra and get a good quality tanning cream.

If you haven’t had any luck with self-tanning facial products, consider giving this one a try.  It is a hydrating, anti-aging self tanning cream. 

Bonus Beauty Tip: For a face slimming effect - try smoothing a little extra self tanning cream down the sides of your face and neck and under your chin. This can help slim a full face and/or camouflage a double chin.

Beauty Tip 5: Plump up thin lips

As we age our lips tend to thin out. They lose shape and definition. I found a simple solution to this issue that only takes 2 minutes and lasts for hours. It's a one time cost solution that you can use over and over again without having to spend thousands of dollars for lip injections.

Beauty Tip 6: Neck firmer

firmer neck

Help smooth neck wrinkles and lines and – over time – help reduce cording…i.e. turkey neck!

This tip comes from Carolyn’s Facial Fitness workout.

It’s easy and quick and if you do it consistently, you can help improve skin tone and texture on the neck. This is a "bonus" exercise and should be done in conjunction with a full face workout for best results.

A facial workout will also help firm the lower part of the face (like jowls) which can also help firm-up the neck.

 NOTE: It's easier to do the Brush if you watch this video first. Click here to see the Brush video.

How:

Apply a moisturizing cream under your chin and all over your neck.

NOTE: I use her potent Vitamin C Crystal Serum. Then make a fist with your right hand, (using the flat side of your fingers between your first and second knuckles) slowly “brush” your double chin area.

  • Start "brushing" from the right side of your under chin area. 
  • Then go across the whole under chin area to your left side. 
  • Move your hand down an inch and begin "brushing" back to the right side.
  • Then move you hand down an inch again and "brush" back to the left side.

Repeat this movement until you've reached your collar bone. Perform the brush twice a day in morning and evening several times a week.
