4 Reasons Why You Need a Neck Cream

The facts about neck creams and the skin beneath your chin

When it comes to skincare FAQs, one of the most common queries is “do I really need a neck cream?” And while your medicine cabinet is most likely stocked with cleansers, toners, serums, masks and moisturizers —you may even be hoarding eye cream—chances are you’re one of the 62% of women that don’t use a neck cream. So if you love the year ‘round turtleneck look on Diane Keaton, but aren’t one for covering up, it’s time to get some neck cream in your life.

1 - The Neck Needs Love Too

Like Nora Ephron once said, “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth”, which is mostly down to neck neglect. Many skincare routines are face-focused, even though the neck is one of the first places to show signs of aging, like loss of elasticity, crepey texture, spots, discoloration and more. Show some love to the skin beneath your chin with a StriVectin Neck Cream.

2 - You Can’t Expect a Face Cream to Do a Neck Cream’s Job

The skin on your neck and décolleté is naturally different from the skin on your face. Less fatty tissue and collagen along with fewer oil glands make this area more prone to slack, sagging skin, crepey texture and chronic dryness. Using a face cream on this delicate skin can nourish and moisturize, but it won’t give the skin on your neck what it needs to be its healthy best. Only a targeted formula, like StriVectin’s TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream Plus, can do that. 

3 - The Effects of Tech

Looking at texts and social media can take a toll on your skin. That constant and repetitive movement may be accelerating the look and size of some horizontal lines. We say, fight tech with high-tech skincare solutions, like the Tightening Neck Serum Roller.

4 - Sun = Fun  

If you’ve gone through life without neck cream, chances are you’ve overlooked your neck and décolleté in the SPF department once or twice. Neglect of these delicate areas can cause spots, discoloration and crepey texture – which last a lot longer than a golden tan. Fear not, though. TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream Plus features texture transforming ingredients and a botanical brightening blend that can improve the look of discoloration and crepey texture on the decolette.
