My mother always told me that you can tell a woman's true age by her hands and neck. It's absolutely correct. A woman can get a face lift, Botox and Restylane the heck out of her eyes, forehead, lips and what not, but hands and neck -- there's not much you can do with the skin there... except take extra kind and gentle care of it!
So, it comes as no surprise to me that skincare brands are designing creams especially for the neck - and chest! - area. We already have our pick of hand creams and I hope that you use hand cream often (I carry tubes in my bag and have bottles at my desk and next to my bed!).
While you don't neccesarily need a specific cream simply for your neck - you can always use your face cream and apply to the neck and chest area too - if you choose to purchase one, here are 5 product choices and the advantages of each:
Rodial Chin & Neck Lift
The newly launched cream sculpts, firms and lifts with pomegranate ellagic tannins. Essential amino acids hydrate to firm and strengthen the skin while promoting elasticity and smoothing the appearance of wrinkles. 79 POUNDS
Clarins Super-Restorative Decollete and Neck Concentrate
A non-oily anti-wrinkle and anit-age spot treatment that evens and enhances the skin's texture while ensuring all the femininity and elegance of the décolleté and neck after age 50. $100.00
Kate Somerville Neck Tissue Repair Cream with Peptide K8™
A firming and anti-wrinkle cream that moisturizes and softens with high-performance peptides and progressive technologies that work to smooth wrinkles and improve overall firmness, elasticity, and skintone. $150.00
Bliss Thinny Thin Chin Neck Firming Cream
This cream works on the area from the chin to the cleavage by firming, hydrating, and improving the appearance of neck lines, crepiness, and hyper-pigmentation. $48.00
La Prairie Anti-Aging Neck Cream
Probably considered the platinum of neck creams, this stuff will help re-contour the chin and neck area to a slimmer, firmer look. It boosts skin function to help restore density, firmness, elasticity and texture with a youth-restoring complex and an advanced peptide. $200.00
The question remains, for these steep prices, do the creams work? Of course they do. Any type of hydration will do the trick. Do you need an additional cream for your neck and chest? Well, that's up to you... Knowledge is power, ladies. Now you know.
