The case for intensive skincare doesn’t stop at the chin

Your poor, poor neck. You’ve dropped a small fortune on serums and creams for your face, but neglected (or neck-lected, if you will) to pamper one of the most vulnerable areas of skin on the body.

Exposure to the elements, environmental damage and constant movement make the neck prone to creping and sagging. Not to mention “tech neck”—when craning over our devices leads to unwanted lines and premature wrinkles in the area—is a real issue, and it’s not going away any time soon. At least not without a quality neck cream.
