There is always a sceptical question around targeted skincare and whether certain areas of our face and body can truly benefit from specific formulas, tailored to their needs. It seems that when it comes to our neck and décolleté, the answer is a resounding yes.

5 Reasons We Need To Show Our Necks Some TLC

  • Neck skin is thinner than that on our face, meaning wrinkles and sagging are more likely, and also more visible.

  • Neck skin produces lower levels of natural oils, meaning it needs a helping hand to stay nourished and moisturised.

  • Due to the thinner dermis, our neck skin naturally produces less collagen too, also accelerating the visible signs of ageing.

  • Tech neck is a modern-day affliction which is caused by our constant downwards gaze. This constant creasing can also exacerbate any neck wrinkles.

  • Especially in summer when UV and environmental damage can be at its highest, our neck and décolleté can be left vulnerable. Often this area is missed when facial SPF is applied and signs of damage, including sun spots and fine lines, can appear.

This week, we have a round-up of some of the most hydrating and nourishing neck and décolleté creams and concentrates to offer smoothing, lifting and tightening effects.
