Neck & Décolleté Concerns and Treatments

One of the most obvious signs of aging is the lack of firmness in the skin. As we age our skin loses the elasticity that it had in our younger years, and this causes it to become loose and appear saggy. This process is often most obvious on the face and neck. Although you cannot turn back the hands of time, you can be proactive and try different home and medical treatments to tighten your loosening neck skin.

The biggest offender to the skin on the neck is sun damage. Since the skin is so thin, it’s an easy target for sun damage and dehydration – especially considering that most people forget to apply their moisturizer and SPF down onto their neck and chest. A good neck cream should provide hydration to the skin.  Look for emollients like shea butter and glycerin.  Also, check for antioxidants to fight free radical damage, such as vitamin E and niacinamide, to reduce sun damage. You can also choose a cream that offers collagen-stimulating ingredients like peptides and retinol (as long as you’re not pregnant or breastfeeding).
