When I think of aging, I immediately think of my face. This is no surprise, as there are a slew of hydrating moisturizers for a youthful glow, hyaluronic acid serums to lock in moisture and plump the skin, and the best sunscreens to protect you from the sun. And while these products are great, there’s one area we tend to miss in our twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties, that can make a big difference: neck cream. What’s the point of having the smoothest, most taught face if your neck is saggy and wrinkle-filled?

I use StriVectin Neck Cream daily because I want all of me to remain youthful—not just my face. “Necks get neglected and have tons of sun damage, and of course, there is tech neck. So, treating the neck is important,” says Dr. Mona Gohara, board-certified dermatologist and member of ELLE’s Beauty Advisory Board. As a journalist, I’m constantly on my computer and my phone, which means I’m looking down. This can lead to fine lines and wrinkles prematurely appearing, otherwise known as tech neck. This is something I want to avoid, so I started using StriVectin Neck Cream.

Not all neck creams are created equal, and this powerful formulation is packed with skin-loving ingredients to give you fast, efficacious results. It took about four weeks for me to start to notice my neckline looking less saggy. This cream has Alpha-3 Peptide, a patented, exclusive peptide to target skin’s natural collagen that’s combined with hyaluronic acid to visibly lift and smooth the neck area. Spilanthol helps tighten and strengthen your skin barrier, while bearberry and clary sage extracts help brighten and even skin tone. “The ingredients are good and helpful in terms of rejuvenation. I’m in favor of just giving needed attention to the neck,” says Dr. Gohara. The texture is rich and creamy, but the product quickly absorbs into your skin. Each time I apply, it’s like a cool glass of water for my skin. My neck instantly looks more hydrated.

Beauty editor, Katie Berohn, who describes herself as a “less is more person” within the skin care realm, also tested this viral neck cream. “I don’t love mixing in a ton of different products to my routine. I do believe in taking good care of your neck, though, so I’ve been extending my moisturizer to my neck and décolletage for years,” she says. Dr. Gohara agrees. “Treating the neck is important, and sure, you can use a special [neck] cream with relative actives, or just use those actives,” she says. Berohn is in her late twenties and has recently started to show minor signs of aging in my neck. She wanted a product specifically formulated for the delicate skin on her neck. “When I put it on, I notice an immediate difference in some of the creasing in my neck,” says Berohn.

According to Dr. Gohara, Berohn is right on time for when she should start using a neck cream. “You should be using SPF every day, at any age; retinoids in your twenties and up; extra stuff: thirties plus,” she says. This neck cream has powerful ingredients but does not include retinol or retinoids, so you can apply this product over those actives. “Even if you’re like me and aren’t concerned with major signs of aging yet, this cream is incredibly moisturizing, making it a great preventative tool,” says Berohn.

The neck cream is currently on sale at StriVectin for almost 50 percent off. At a little over $100, this is a cheaper option than a neck lift or fillers. So, don’t let your neck age you! Whether you want to continuously get carded (don’t we all?) or simply take preventative measures, add this dermatologist-approved neck cream to your rotation to take years off your neck.
