Although your teint can attract all the attention of your skin, your neck deserves just as much TLC. The skin on your neck is as sensitive as the skin on your face to all sorts of symptoms of aging — wrinkles, sagging, scars, dryness. If it is not properly covered and handled, all these imperfections will easily begin to appear, and no matter how well you look after your teint and how young your face can look, your neck may make you look older than you actually are.
In principle, as far as treatment products are concerned, you can use any of the skincare products you use on your face — serums, moisturizers, exfoliators — on your back. Still, it’s a good idea to opt for a dedicated neck cream, not only because it’s specifically formulated for this area, but also because it’s a good way to remember to give the skin on your neck the time and care it deserves.
Go ahead, the best creams in the neck that will get the job done.
Strivectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream
This best-seller has recently undergone an update, thanks to the introduction of a special Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex, which not only enhances skin elasticity on the neck but also raises and helps reduce the presence of fine horizontal lines. But it doesn’t end there: the proprietary NIA-114 niacinamide-based technology from the company helps to strengthen the skin barrier, and the cream even includes a brightening complex to eliminate dark spots and balance out the skin tone. Basically, in one compact container, it’s everything you will ever want and need to solve all of your neck problems.
L’Oréal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle Face & Neck Contour
Not only is this wallet-friendly multi-tasker, but it’s also perfect for skin care minimalists who prefer a one-stop shop to treat both their face and neck. From the brand’s super-popular Revitalift anti-aging line, this affordable option includes pro-retinol A in just four weeks to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles and firm skin. As if this weren’t enough, it also contains hydrating glycerin to provide up to 24 hours of moisturization. Lightweight and quick-absorbing enough to use under makeup in the morning, you can even use it before bedtime.
RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Anti-Aging Moisturizing Cream SPF 30
This drugstore purchase wins considerable points to add the oh-so-necessary SPF, providing a one-two punch of both safety and care, and it can also be used on your face and arms. In addition to this very significant sunscreen, this cream also vibrates Hexinol technology that targets, you know, five different signs of aging, including smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing firmness and elasticity loss, and boosting radiance. Bonus points for adding vitamin E, which is a highly hydrating and nourishing component. Be sure to integrate it into your morning routine, as this does include SPF.
Dr. Brandt Moisturizing Neck Cream
Slather this on your neck (and your chest and jawline too) to make your skin look firmer and lifter. Glycolic acid not only helps to promote the development of collagen for firmer skin but also exfoliates gently to make skin look clearer and evener. Often special in this formula: sorghum extract, which helps to maintain the softness of the skin.
Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Fortifying Neck Emulsion
This lightweight treatment is a option for those who don’t like heavy creams. But it still packs a potent wrinkle-fighting punch despite the featherweight and silky texture. Thank two separate acids — lactical to promote cell turnover, and ferulic, a strong antioxidant that provides an additional protective shield against free radicals induced by sun exposure.
Murad Rejuvenating Lift for Neck and Décolleté
It’s important to think far beyond your neck when thinking about the skin underneath your jaw, and remember your chest too. After all, no one wants a wrinkled, mottled, sagging, decolleté, and since this region is often revealed (yet forgotten when it comes to sunscreen), it can all turn into very real problems. This procedure established by a dermatologist treats crepiness and spots on both chest and back. A combination of retinyl palmitate (a slightly more gentle yet effective retinoid) is combined with Brazilian fruit extracts to help promote the production of collagen and plump skin to deal with the former.
