How to Firm and Tighten the Skin on Your Neck in Just 1 Step

Posted by Ingrie Williams on

When was the last time you took a good look at your neck? If it’s been a while, you’re not alone! While we’re quick to lavish our faces with cleansers, serums and creams, we often overlook the skin below the jawline. The neck and décolleté get their fair share of exposure to dirt, debris, damaging UV light and free radicals, too. As skin that’s typically left to defend itself against multiple aggressors, this part of the body commonly shows signs of aging first. On closer inspection you may detect the development of a dry, crepey texture, sagging, fine lines and wrinkles, or discoloration. The neck is also uniquely set up to signal aging early because the skin is thinner than on the face. This means it’s not bolstered by the same cushiony layer of fat, collagen and elastin that contributes to a firm, hydrated and toned epidermis.

It’s also likely that your modern lifestyle isn’t doing your neck any favours. In our digital age, many of us spend prolonged periods looking down at devices such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Extended time gazing at screens placed at a low angle can lead to a case of ‘tech neck’ which can manifest in several ways both inside and out. Signs of tech neck can range from headaches, neck pain or stiffness and poor posture to the deepening of horizontal neck wrinkles and sagging of the skin on the neck.

The good news is that you can take charge, and reduce aging on the neck and chest, with one simple step: add a neck firming cream to your existing skin care routine. Like any anti-aging step, there’s no right or wrong age to start this – but the earlier you show your neck some TLC, the sooner it can benefit. Your skin type can also inform your decision. Drier skin can reveal some signs of premature aging at a younger age, compared to oily complexions. And though it seems easy enough to just use a face cream on the neck, a formula loaded with actives that’s made for the face (which has a denser, more resilient epidermal layer) is often too intense for south of the jawline. Choosing a cream exclusively intended for use on the neck will avoid irritating this sensitive zone.

Here’s what you need to know, from key ingredients to application tips for firmer looking skin.

What to Look for in a Neck Firming Cream

To successfully address common signs of aging below the chin, the best firming creamwill contain proven anti-aging ingredients. Look for growth factors, retinol, and/or Vitamin C, which are all in Vivier GrenzCine Neck. But that’s not the only criteria. While those ingredients are the same as the ones that are tried-and-true in anti-aging face products, the best neck cream will deliver them in a balanced and nourishing formulation. Since the skin on the neck is made up of fewer oil glands and has a naturally thin quality, it tends to be dry and delicate. It can also be more susceptible to being sensitive or reactive compared to the face. As a product that’s specially formulated for this part of the body, GrenzCine Neck delivers effective actives that can reinforce the epidermis without aggravating it.

How GrenzCine Neck works

Here's how the potent-yet-gentle formula delivers. The first powerhouse ingredient is a growth factor called Polyamine-DAB, which is the star of the GrenzCine collection. Made using amino acid compounds that are naturally found in the body, it stimulates your body’s own growth factors which contribute to strong, healthy-looking skin. Clinically proven to improve firmness, hydration and thicken the skin, Polyamine-DAB is a true innovation that helps to revitalize the appearance of aging on the neck.

It also contains six renewal complexes, including retinol. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol is a must-have anti-aging ingredient that helps to encourage cell turnover, boost collagen production and support moisture levels. It’s a superstar for smoothing and firming, but retinol can be irritating for some skin types. Taking the fragile nature of the neck into consideration, GrenzCine Neck delivers this active in a gentle, low dose form along with comforting hydrators, like shea butter and squalane.

Vitamin C is another important active in the mix. Regarded as an essential for healthy skin among all skin types, the antioxidant can easily extend its multiple renowned benefits to the neck. Not only can it help protect skin from free radicals that break down collagen and lead to sagging, but Vitamin C also reduces dullness and dark spots. Plus, it assists in photo protection when used with sunscreen – which should be applied daily on the neck, too!

How to Use a Neck Tightening Cream

It’s easy to incorporate a neck firming cream into any daily skin care routine. In the AM, slot in neck cream application after using a cleanser, toner, and serum. Use fingertips to massage it onto your neck, jawline and décolleté. Then apply your moisturizer and SPF. Daily sun protection will help achieve optimal results from the active ingredients in GrenzCine Neck. Be sure to cover your face, neck, and chest with an adequate amount of sunscreen. It should be the last step in your morning skin care routine, rain or shine. In the PM, neck cream should also follow cleansing, toning and evening target serum.

For the ultimate anti-aging skin care routine, don’t neglect your neck! With regular use, a neck firming cream can help to diminish the look of wrinkles and make the skin on your neck (and chest) appear visibly lifted and radiant.
