Your Neck Needs A Skincare Regimen Too! Here's Why
Our roundup of the best creams that work to create a tighter, firmer, youthful neck
If you’ve ever ventured into anti-ageing products, you probably already have your favorite eye cream, face serum, moisturizer and sunscreen that you use everyday. While we know that all these products are vital for any skincare routine, you shouldn’t forget that your neck needs extra attention, too—especially if you’re starting to notice sagging skin or fine lines and wrinkles in this area.
Some of you may have started your skincare routines in your teens, but you might be guilty of overlooking your neck. Turns out, there’s a reason we often hear that a woman’s age is seen in her neck.
In an interview of Rhonda Quain for Woman's World, she said that “the neck should be treated the same way you should take care of your face as it often shows age even before you sprout your first crow’s feet or laugh line.”
“The skin in our neck is actually thinner, making the loss of collagen and elastin more noticeable and quicker. Gravity is also against us with our neck, ofhen creating ‘turkey neck’ if we’re not careful. With fewer oil glands, the neck is also less plump and hydrated than our face," explains the board certified dermatologist.
While it’s easy to assume that the same products you use on your face will also work for your neck, achieving a younger-looking neck often requires more targeted products.
And to make the search easier for you, we gathered some of the most hydrating and tightening products that can be beneficial to prevent signs of aging on your neck. Take your pick:

Wait for at least 20 minutes and voila, your skin now feels smooth, hydrated and healthy!
