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.

As we age, it’s common for the skin on our neck to become crepey and wrinkle. And while we often take plenty of care with creams and serums for our face, the same often can’t be said about our neck.

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:

Beauty treatments

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 LIZLOVES to save 10% at checkout) uses LED technology to offer both prevention and improvement for the appeance 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.

Tweakments

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.
