The Need For Neck Creams
While our smart phones help us stay connected and offer 24/7 news and what not, the constant crouching, squinting, and hunching is actually aging us. GASP. Yes, your iPhone is causing fine lines and wrinkles. And beauty companies are combatting one such problem: tech neck. You know, those tiny lines you see on your neck and décolletage after a day spent furiously keeping track of Trump’s latest Twitter storm (or is that just me?). Not to mention, the skin on our neck and chest is incredibly delicate and thin, like the eye area, yet we so often overlook this area that totally shows our (actual) age! Overlooked no more.
But how do you use a neck cream? Just like a face moisturizer, except it goes on the neck, nightly. Apply in upward and outward strokes so that the cream is massaged toward the jawline and back of neck. Also of note: use these creams on your décolletage, too, because cleavage deserves some TLC. Of course you can apply your everyday moisturizers to neck and décolletage but, as a true beauty enthusiast, we like a cream made specifically for the occasion.
Here are the neck creams we’re loving:
Make Moonlight Neck Cream ($52) – Like an IRL filter, this gel tightens and brightens. It also leaves the faintest sheen of glowiness. Obsessed.
Image Skincare The Max Stem Cell Neck Lift ($85) – The name says it all (and we’re seriously obsessed with stem cells after this treatment). This cream is a triple threat: it firms, tightens, and brightens.
Exuviance Age Reverse Toning Neck Cream ($79) – Another stem cell-rich cream that smoothes creases and improves overall texture and tone. If you like thick and hydrating, this is your go-to.
Dermelect Cleavage Contour Cream ($40) – CoEnzyme Q10 tightens and reduces sagging, while vitamins and essential oils brighten the contours of the bustline. Va-va-voom.
Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream ($92) – An all-natural, fast acting lifting, tightening, moisturizing, and firming cream. We love the pump top applicator and the pretty peach hue (the scent is naturally delightful too).
Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Necollete Age Reversal For Neck and Chest ($75) – Formulated exclusively for the thinning skin, hyaluronic acid firms and plumps contours while peptides strengthen collagen. The result: tighter, brighter, more even skin, sans the signs of aging.
