Whether you're applying moisturizer, serum, or sunscreen, the same skin commandment applies: Never forget your neck. Your décolleté needs some TLC, too, especially once you hit your late 20s and gravity starts taking its toll. That said, using the same gel- or water-based face moisturizer on your neck might not be enough. The wrinkles, sagging, and dehydration that eventually develop in that area overtime deserve a more potent treatment that goes beyond hydration, hence the existence of anti-aging products for the décolletage.
We know, we know. It sounds a little excessive to have a separate moisturizer for your neck, but it's actually not that uncommon a practice! (Read why Heart Evangelista swears by it here.) It is the best alternative to getting a surgical lift, after all. So when you're ready for the extra step, here are age-defying neck creams worth adding to your rotation:
Skin Doctors Superfacelift Face and Neck Lifting Cream
The Superfacelift targets wrinkles on the face and neck with encapsulated retinol and lactic acid to reveal smoother skin. It claims to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles by 86 percent after a month, so imagine how much firming you'll receive by working it down your neck.
