Why does it make a difference what type of moisturizer you apply on your neck compared to your face. There are many skin care lines now promoting different products for the 2 areas & I'm wondering if it really makes a difference. Also does it make a difference that you apply the neck creams in an upward fashion. I think it really wouldn't. Gravity is gravity & it's pushing down anyway, no?

I personally don't believe there is any difference when it comes to moisturizers. Many of these companies will develop products for individual areas only so their customers end up buying 4 products as opposed to one. I really think it's all just a marketing scheme. One exception would be body moisturizers which are not always suitable for the face. Same goes for eye creams. Many eye creams are suited for the sensitive areas around the eyes and aren't really designed to be used on the entire face. But I see no reason why you couldn't use a facial moisturizer on your neck.

I agree with this statement, after buying and trying many "neck" products myself.

I started a thread about "Facial Yoga" elsewhere on this site, and so will just mention here that there are exercises that target the neck and throat. I've been doing them for probably six months, prompted by a major weight loss and fears of sagging as a result.

Anyway, I did a search and found a site that had alot of great exercises. Go to www dot dermaxime dot com, and click on "FREE Articles" in the column on the left side of the page. A whole bunch of interesting articles come up, including "Facial exercises", which will include exercises for the face and neck.

[Disclaimer - I am not promoting their products, nor do I know anything about this company, nor do I care. I just "googled" neck exercises, theirs came up, among others, and I found their site useful].

Give it a try! I have been pleasantly surprised by the results.
