REVERSE
NECK NEGLECT

Nothing like poor Zoom lighting to make you consider your tech neck. Don’t worry–we have solves for that.

In this moment of pandemic caution–work from home, school from home, daily existential crisis from home–we are spending less time with other people and a lot more time with ourselves, which means we should probably start paying attention to areas we might be ignoring. This VIOLET GREY Beauty Expert has experienced a flurry of messages from clients who are all of a sudden painfully aware of an area that had previously gone unnoticed–the neck. Perhaps you, too have had a rude awakening when staring at yourself instead of your colleagues on your 27th Zoom meeting of the day. With more time in front of screens and hours spent doom-scrolling, the deep lines and crepey skin of “tech neck” are real. The truth is, that for all of our beloved face care, the sensitive, thin skin just below it often goes unloved and untreated. 

Renowned dermatologist and researcher Dr. Macrene Alexiades says, “While you can always apply your face cream on your neck with some improvement to skin quality, the skin on the neck is different and requires targeted treatment to address its needs.” Luckily, the experts here at VIOLET GREY have an arsenal of powerful, effective, VIOLET CODE APPROVED products ready to tackle years of neck neglect. So, don’t panic–it’s not too late. Times are tough, so take this opportunity to give yourself (and your neck) a little extra care.

If you would like to do a deeper dive on neck treatments or any other topic, text VIOLET AT YOUR SERVICE at +1 (310) 510-6306 to schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our Beauty Experts. We help with everything from overhauling your skin care routine to providing you with the best at-home foundation match, now that you have been inside for the better part of a year.

Finding yourself lost (and a little less firm) without your monthly facial? The ZIIP Nano Current Device is here for you. These seemingly magical nano-currents work to tighten and firm the skin, while increasing blood flow and promoting lymphatic drainage.
