Important question: When it comes to your skin care routine, have you been ignoring your neck? Chances are the answer is yes, and honestly, you’re not the only one. While most of us spend plenty of time primping and pampering our faces, we tend to stop when we get to our jawline. In fact, you could have the most diligent skin care routine of anyone you know, but if you’re not showing the skin on your neck the same TLC as the skin on your face, all your hard work could be for nothing. Even if you keep your complexion looking bright and youthful by slathering on a serum, applying SPF every morning, and using an anti-aging night cream, neglecting your neck could give away your age. So, it’s time to start showing your neck some serious attention! Here, find out how to care for your neck, plus get product recommendations for neck creams that you can add to your skin care regimen.
Stop stocking up on turtlenecks! There are two very easy pieces of skin care advice you should start following. Get on board and you’ll want to show off your neck in V-neck shirts all year-round!
1. First things first: Don’t forget about your neck. Most importantly, your skin care routine shouldn’t stop at your jawline. The next time you apply moisturizer in the morning or night cream before you go to bed, remember to apply the same products south of your jawline—a.k.a. to your neck—so it can reap the benefits, too.
2. Apply sunscreen to your neck every day. SPF shouldn’t just be relegated to your beach bag for summer days spent lounging by the ocean or pool. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, you can get burned even on cloudy days—which makes sunscreen an essential skin care product to use 365 days a year. What’s more, spending time outside without wearing sun protection can lead to damage—and that damage can show up down the road as wrinkles and dark spots. That’s why it’s important to apply SPF not just to your face, but to your neck as well. When picking out a sunscreen, look for one that’s broad-spectrum, meaning it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using an SPF of 15 or higher every day, but advises using an SPF of 30 or higher if you’re going to be spending an extended amount of time in the sun. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go outside (and be generous with how much you use!), and remember to reapply every two hours—more often if you’re swimming or sweating.
Ready to commit to caring for your neck? Try these two L’Oréal Paris products, which are formulated for both face and neck.
As your skin matures, one of the biggest changes you experience is a loss of moisture, nutrients, and natural oils. Your skin’s decreasing ability to retain moisture as you age can lead to your face, neck, and even chest becoming more dry. This balm, formulated with 10 precious oils, intensely moisturizers to help nourish and strengthen mature skin. Apply the balm every morning and evening onto cleansed skin and smooth until thoroughly absorbed.
In addition to your skin’s ability to retain moisture decreasing as you age, the natural lifters that are present in your skin to keep it firm and looking youthful break down. This can lead to the skin on your neck and jawline looking and feeling less firm—plus, this can make wrinkles look more visible. This daily moisturizer is formulated for the face and neck to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent dryness. Apply the cream gently over your face and neck area every morning until it’s thoroughly absorbed. Then, follow up by swiping on a heaping dose of broad-spectrum SPF.
