Our Favorite Anti-Aging Creams to Apply on the Neck
The skin on your neck is naturally thin, which is why it’s one of the first places on the body to show signs of aging in the form of wrinkles, fine lines and creping. Like the skin on your face, these effects can be caused by excess sun exposure, pollution and poor lifestyle habits. But unlike the skin on your face, you may neglect the area when it comes to applying sunscreen and anti-aging products.
To up your neck-care game, we recommend always bringing your SPF down to your neck and investing in a neck cream (or a cream that’s formulated for the neck and face). These formulas often have firming and nourishing benefits that are designed to prevent and repair signs of aging to the area. Here, we’re sharing our favorite products to use below the jawline.
This powerful cream is specially formulated to target lines and wrinkles on the neck, including those caused by “tech neck,” i.e. constantly staring down at your phone. It contains retinol, a tripeptide concentrate and a glaucine complex that all help treat and prevent wrinkles.
