The Only Face and Neck Creams a Dermatologist Swears By for Plump, Lifted Skin
When Coco Chanel spoke about skincare, it was about one prominent area: The face. "Nature gives you the face you have at twenty," she said. "It is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty." While we all seem to have gotten on board with skincare recently as a means of self-care, it’s safe to say that while skin covers our body, our routines focus on our faces. While taking care of your face is nothing to be ashamed of, there’s another area just underneath it that we tend to ignore, and it tends to show age more quickly: the neck.
Unlike facial skin, your neck is covered in skin that is thinner and more delicate, making it more susceptible to sagging. But just like the face, there are a number of skin products available to keep your skin looking fresh. "When it comes to firming, high-potency vitamin C and peptides are ideal ingredients," said Audrey Kunin, MD, certified dermatologist and founder of DermaDoctor. "Look for a product containing 15% to 20% vitamin C, ferulic acid, and vitamin E."
So which firming products should you add to your rotation? Kunin recommends the best firming creams for face and neck, so your décolletage will look just as fabulous as your face.
The Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Neck Contour Treatment "features amino acid hydroxyproline to help retexturize skin and leave a feeling of fullness," Kunin says.
