You might be committed to a rigorous anti-aging facial regimen. But wait! Have you forgotten about your neck and décolleté? Fast forward ten years, the mirror reflects a face and a neck that don’t “match.” One looks older than the other which reveals your true age. ‘Neck neglect’ is a tell-all, even our CEO Carrie Gross admits it.
Most people don’t realize that the skin on the neck is different than the face. Why? The skin on our neck is unique – it’s actually 10x thinner than the skin on our face. In fact, there are fewer oil glands, which can lead to dryness, as well as a different pore count. The nature of the neck also experiences wear and tear everyday as it’s constantly moving, breaking down collagen fibers.
Let’s also take a moment to talk about the new phenomenon “tech neck.” We are living in a digital age where people are constantly staring at their palms, looking down at their phones or computer screens – practices which can lead to accelerated signs of aging.
For all these reasons, the neck requires special attention to prevent or repair that dreaded turkey-neck-effect.
What should you look for? A neck cream that contains higher concentrations and specialized blends of ingredients than a facial cream, to more effectively absorb into the skin of the neck.
Doctor’s Tip: Apply sunscreen to not just the face but also to the neck and backs of hands every day. Doing this will guarantee the desired delay in aging.
Guess what? We have something called an ‘emulsion’, designed especially for the neck. Shop it here.
