Understanding Neck Skincare

The days of forgetting the neck in a skincare routine are long past. Numerous skin health solutions are available to address the unique needs of neck skin with specific ingredients + technologies to support superior results.

It’s important to understand why the neck requires specialized solutions that differ from typical face products. Why is neck skin so different and how can an at-home regimen take those needs into account to treat aging skin?

Neck Skin vs. Facial Skin

It may come as a surprise to some that your skin is not the same everywhere on your body. For example, notice that the skin on your palms differs in thickness than the skin on your face. You can feel the difference by pinching each area. If you repeat the same exercise on your cheek and your neck, the differences can be felt there, as well. There are differences, but, why?

Neck skin is thinner. It also is subjected to a lot of the environmental and mechanical stress that the face endures—the neck gets sun exposure and moves with you from gestures, exercise and more.

However, due to the thinness of the skin and the decreased amount of fat in the skin layers, it tends to age much faster, losing its shape and developing lines from daily dynamic movement.

The neck often gets neglected in the skin care routine, and at minimum, does not get protected with sunscreen. These factors combined make neck skin more quickly susceptible to the signs of aging, such as:

  • Visible Compromises in Fragility + Structure
  • Crepiness
  • Dryness and Structure
