Ditch the turtleneck and educate yourself on the skin below your chin
What about our necks with all of us continuing to video conference and focus on our faces? When it comes to skincare, the neck is having a real moment, and though it’s been a minute since Nora Ephron famously felt bad about hers, we’re here to help you feel great about yours. We’re all about the new focus on the neck and how to best take care of it. At StriVectin, we are firm believers in neck care as necessity, and we made it our mission to further our research in a category where we have already achieved #1 status. That’s why we trademarked the term “tech neck”, to help inform about this overlooked area. Ready to take the neck’s step? Read on.
First and foremost, the skin on your neck is different from the skin on your face.
The neck, as opposed to the face, has fewer and thinner fat pads, less collagen and elastin, fewer sebaceous or oil gland, which is why the neck can start to show signs of aging with loose, thinning, dry, and crepey skin earlier than the face. Moreover, the neck is often neglected in a daily skincare routine and is overly exposed to the sun and other external causes of aging. As a rule of thumb, the face and neck should be cared for with twice-daily serum, daily sunscreen, and nightly moisturizer.
Multiple factors are responsible for the signs of aging on the neck and the unique skin challenges on the neck. As we age, the jawline decreases in length and height, which is more dramatic in women and occurs earlier. As the jawline and chin lose their definition, the neck skin will sag. Another natural aging change is that fat pads thin and redistributes and bulge, resulting in fat accumulation under the chin. Lastly, long-term usage of ligaments and muscle on the neck and lower face and the loss of muscle tone causes fatty tissue to push out and result in neck laxity. With the increased use and time spent on cell phones, laptops, and tablets/iPads, continued use of the neck muscle known as the platysma muscle worsens horizontal neck lines and sagging on the neck.
We know how the neck ages naturally, but what about the "external" causes? As leaders in the neck care category, we are here to help with a common problem in our digital-first world: Tech Neck™. This repetitive movement of looking down at your device over time deepens horizontal creases and causes loss of definition to the jawline. Give this delicate skin the clinically proven care it needs with TL Advanced™ Neck Cream PLUS, formulated to visibly smooth, lift, and tighten for healthier-looking skin.
So what are the critical signs of Tech Neck™? Look for the formation or deepening of horizontal creases on the neck, an increase in the number of neck lines, and a loss of definition along the jawline. And if you want to get that neck in check, we’re here for you with the ultimate tender loving neck care.
Our NEW Peptight™ Tightening Neck Serum Roller will help you roll into a new routine. This peptide-powered serum is clinically proven to improve the appearance of horizontal neck lines, sagging, and skin texture. This perfect pick-me-up is a luxe, lightweight serum with a cooling massager that provides a bit of refresh while working on those neck lines and jawline definition and helping to improve the visible effects of blue light.
After you apply, go for our #1 selling skincare brand for the neck & décolleté*, TL Advanced™ Neck Cream PLUS to improve the look of horizontal neck lines, sagging & crepey skin, age spots & uneven skin tone. If using both products together, apply cream AM & PM and use the serum throughout the day as desired for the best in class smoothing and tightening.
Investing in your neck is a bright idea that will give you that bit of lift you’re looking for. After all, your neck supports you; isn’t it time you supported it with next-level care?
