There is an abundance of skincare products available to us, yet it’s surprising that so few of them focus on our necks.
Like the skin everywhere else on your body, the skin on your neck needs attention too. In fact, signs of ageing might be the first to give away your youthfulness.
As the skin around the neck is much thinner, signs of ageing often appear sooner than other parts of the body. It also has fewer sebaceous (oil) glands, which means it can be prone to dryness. Dehydrated skin not only looks dull, but wrinkles and crepiness look more obvious. We’re constantly turning and bending our necks and coupled with the fact that skin inevitably and naturally loses its collagen and elastin, wrinkles and lines will become a forgone conclusion if something isn’t done to combat it. Then there are environmental factors. Your neck is often exposed to the elements.
Sun damage contributes to wrinkles, brown spots and loss of firmness. In fact, when applying sunblock, we tend to neglect our neck. The question now is, do we need a dedicated product for neck care? And my answer is a BIG YES. Of course, there are products out there that target neck ageing concerns, but having a dedicated product for a dedicated part of your body ensures that you don’t miss out that step in your skin care regime.
Enter: Dermalogica Neck Fit Contour Serum
This firming serum is made specifically to care for the skin on your neck. It contiains Rye Seed Extract with a novel Palmitoyl Tripeptide-42 and Rambutan Extract to deliver Retinol-like results, visibly smoothing, firming and toning skin.
Flex Lift Contour Technology provides a visible lifting and tightening effect, smoothes fine lines and helps to protect skin against pollution.
A Resurrection Plant-inspired polysaccharide helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier for a smoother, more even appearance. Griffonia Seed Extract provides antioxidant defense to help safeguard results against free radicals.
First Impression & Thoughts
I haven’t been a consistent user of neck care products so this comes to me as a new addition to my skincare regime. I’m not complaining though, because the applicator is actually easy to use and evenly distributes the products all over without having to dirty my fingers. The product promises to minimise fine lines and wrinkles while toning the skin over time. I’ve yet to notice these effects but I do feel an immediate tightening and
lifting effect that gives a more contoured appearance immediately after use. I love that you can turn the applicator on/off, gently squeeze the tube to dispense the serum and roll the applicator over your entire neck, from décolleté to jawline, giving yourself a little massage/workout. The physical massage from the roller, probably also helps with the skin-tightening and contouring.
Neck care CAN’T be understated and it deserves as much focus and effort as what we put into the rest of our skin care.
