How to Choose a Neck Firming Cream That Works?
1. Choose an anti-aging cream specifically designed for the neck area:
Don’t expect a face cream to do a neck cream’s job.
Above, we learned that the skin on our neck is not the same as the skin on our face. Furthermore, the neck suffers from signs of aging that are different to the face (wrinkles versus crepey skin). This leads us to the conclusion that the neck and chest skin should (1) be considered in your overall skincare routine and (2) must be treated differently to the skin of your face.
So if your neck and chest skin needs special treatment to reduce the 6 signs of neck aging and help it stay younger-looking, what can you do about it?
The best way to give your neck back its youthful appearance is to use a cream that is specifically formulated for the neck.
2. Choose a cream with both moisturizing AND anti-aging ingredients:
Many face or body moisturizers do only that – moisturize – and fail to deliver the anti-aging benefits of tightening neck skin, reduce sagging and erase lines and wrinkles.
Hydrating ingredients will replace lost oils, making your neck skin more supple and smooth. Anti-aging ingredients target crepey skin, encouraging the production of collagen to boost elasticity for a visibly more toned and tightened neck.
When reviewing product alternatives, remember that a good neck lotion treatment infuses your skin with hydration and increases its elasticity by stimulating collagen and elastic production.
3. Look for products with high-quality ingredients:
There are many efficacious ingredients on the market to hydrate, lift, and firm. However, a great neck cream can’t go without these must-haves:
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is intensely hydrating, making the skin around the neck and chest more plump and firm.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): They help shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, younger layers underneath, penetrating deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen production. They can also increase the thickness of deeper layers of skin, promoting firmness. This makes the neck skin feel firmer, smoothing out fine lines in the crepey skin. (For more information see: https://www.healthline.com/health/beauty-skin-care/alpha-hydroxy-acid#exfoliate)
Vitamin C and Peptides: These promote healthy collagen production, boosting elasticity in the skin by repairing damage done by free radicals and the sun.
Oils and butters: Since our skin naturally produces less oil as we age and our neck has fewer sebaceous glands than our face, products with oils and butters are effective to give your neck skin an instant hydration boost and increase elasticity.
4. Choose natural and organic ingredients:
Your skin is your largest organ and everything you put on your skin makes its way into your body. Synthetic ingredients may dry out your skin, and added dyes and fragrances may cause an allergic reaction. Choose a neck firming cream without poisons, toxins and chemicals.
5. Evaluate the price as an indicator of quality and trust:
High-quality, natural and organic ingredients are not dirt cheap. But they won’t cost you an arm or a leg either.
If a neck cream costs less than $40, you can be sure the manufacturer isn’t using high-quality ingredients in their formula and the product will not give you the results it promises.
On the other hand, if the neck cream costs over $80, this is an indication that you’re paying much more than the fair price, even if the product delivers good results and contains high-quality ingredients. In these cases, it’s possible that you are being charged extra to fund expensive packaging, marketing campaigns or a higher margin – with no additional benefit for you or your neck.
Choose a neck cream with a mid-range price between $40 and $80.
6. Consider the packaging:
High-quality creams without excessive preservatives are sensitive to light and air exposure, decreasing their effectiveness. Therefore, transparent jars are not a good option to help maintain the product’s quality over time. Look for neck creams in an airless pump bottle instead.
So next time you’re searching for a neck cream at the store or on Amazon or Google, take the time to consider these 6 simple tips. At the end of the day, it's all about choosing the best crepey neck cream for you - whether you go for the one I personally developed with care and love 😊 or for any brand of your choice - which will deliver the results you deserve.
