Best neck skincare creams and treatments
Looking to curate a skincare routine for your neck? Whether you’re after preventative products to keep the skin on your neck looking youthful or want to combat the signs of “turkey neck” (a rather unglamorous term coined to describe sagging in this area), know that there are steps you can take to achieve both.
It’s not just age that causes neck wrinkles. Some suspect that electronic devices are worsening the issue. Known as “tech neck”, spending time with our heads hunched over laptop and phone screens presses the wrinkles more firmly into place.
So, what can you do? Here, we share the best neck creams, treatments and beauty hacks that can help to improve the appearance of skin on your neck.
Neck skincare tips and tricks
Best neck creams and serums
It goes without saying that skincare shouldn’t just stop at our face, so make sure you always apply your current beauty setup to your neck too. Don’t forget to use SPF here either.
If you really want to step up your game, you can get your hands on dedicated creams and serums to care for your neck. These can help keep things smooth and supple. Opt for products containing moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid. And remember, like most skincare products, results won’t be instant.
Here are some top-rated, cruelty-free save, spend, and splurge options:
- Sanctuary Spa Supercharged Hyaluronic Face and Neck Crème – £13.20
- Beauty Pie’s Über Youth Neck and Chest Super Lift Serum-Spray (£17.50 with membership – use LIZLOVES to save £10 off first month)
- IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Neck Cream Moisturiser – £44
- Emma Hardie Lift and Scult Firming Neck Treatment – £65
- Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream – £79.20
There are a number of products on the market that can provide further care for the skin on your neck.
Cellreturn UK’s Neckle Ray Plus (£768 – use LIZLOVES23 to save 10% at checkout) uses LED technology to offer both prevention and improvement for the appearance of your neck.
The 360° device emits wavelengths to strengthen and rejuvenate the skin on the neck. It can also help to increase collagen and skin elasticity through the production of fibroblasts and boosting cellular activity by activating the mitochondria chromoreceptors.
Meanwhile, Skinz Medical Graded Silicone Anti-Wrinkle Neck Patch, £19.99, has rave reviews for reducing the appearance of fine lines on the neck. Each patch can be reused up to 20 times, and are made from medical grade silicone to comfortably hug your skin, gently compressing it to stay flat and smooth.
Gua sha skincare tools, which have surged in popularity, can also be used on the neck as well as on the face. The ancient Chinese holistic practice promises to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and can also help to ease any stiffness in the neck.
If you want to take things a little further, “tweakments” may be an option for you (although these should be researched in depth before making any decisions).
Options include Profhilo, which places a lightweight hyaluronic acid gel into the skin. This then spreads to cover the treated area, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox is another popular option here. However, this may have minimal impact on wrinkles as the injections can help to soften the tight bands of muscle down the neck, which make the neck look stringy, rather than combatting necklace lines.
