The skin on your neck is no joke. Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t like the skin on your face. It’s tougher, more resilient. You know those Hampton’s moms that host themed dinner parties every week and use $500 products made out of their own blood? Their necks aren’t tight because they slapped some of their regular moisturizers on and called it a day, they use neck cream.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that there are ways to tighten your neck skin without surgery. The thing about your neck is that it requires care, and while your face might be glowy and plump from all of your mists, masks and toners, your neck will show signs of stress and age sooner. This is because the skin on your neck is thinner, dryer and a lot more vulnerable to the elements that cause the skin to depreciate.
We’ll be the first to admit that it isn’t easy to remember your neck in your skincare routine. However, when you’re already doing the most and spending twenty minutes carefully layering and massaging products into your cheekbones, what’s a few more products?
How to tighten neck skin?
Neck skin can be tightened without surgery by boosting hydration intake in both diet and products, daily massaging areas of your neck to relax its muscles, and making sure to limit the neck skin’s exposure to sun and free radicals by using antioxidant packed products.
Boosting hydration in your everyday routine aids in tightening neck skin because it provides that extra barrier of protection the skin on your neck needs to rebuild and replenish itself.
The drier your skin, the more prone it is to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and inflammation. Boosting hydration comes in the form of drinking lots of fluids, eating water-rich foods, and using the right kinds of products to sooth and repair neck skin.
Here are some of our favorite products for boosting the hydration of your neck.
If you haven’t heard, the Erno Laszlo Phelityl is the ultimate night cream. It’s unique in that its texture is almost gel-like, but seeps into your skin to lock in moisture at its peak. You can use this as your base moisturizer, or as a companion to a lighter, everyday one. The texture and properties of this cream are ideal for tightening neck skin while also softening and soothing.
