I was reading a magazine a few days ago and read an article on how a woman?s neck is one of the most neglected areas of the body, but is the first area to show wrinkles. This made me become paranoid and now I?m convinced my neck is going to start to wrinkle prematurely. I went to two food stores and did not find any creams specifically designed to help throat skin, so I googled the topic and found Glycolic Eye & Throat Gel. It is said that this product tightens the throats skin area.
Has anyone tried this and if so, does it work?

I've never tried that product. But I have heard some stories from women that after using anti-aging products on their necks, they found that the skin became even more saggy and loose. Are there maybe some exercises you can do to firm up the muscles in the neck?

I have never tried that product, but I have tried Erno Laszlo's Mositure Firming Throat Cream and I love it. It gets rid of the need to find neck excercises to firm those muscles. Erno Laszlo also has another cream with an SPF 20, but I have not tried it yet.

Neck and Throat excercises:
1. A) Sit on the edge of a chair, feet flat on floor: Move head forward and lift chin. B) Place lower lip over upper lip and push forward as though pointing. Maintain position for 10 seconds.

2. Several times a day, tilt head back, thrust chin upwards by placing lower lip over upper lip and continue pushing lower lip out to maximum until you can feel muscles pulling all the way to the top of your chest.

3. (This may be the best one, both for throat in general and double chin.) Place hands one top of the toher, under your chin. Slowly open your mouth and at the same time, resist from beneath. Resist as much as possible.

Another one of the major advances Reviva offers for the throat area is their "DMAE Firming Fluid," available in Health Food Stores, Ultra Cosmetic Stores, etc.

The neck and the decollete are extremely sensitive and can show the signs of aging.

You should head to a department store to find some products for the neck. I know that Clarins and La Prairie both have moisturizers for the neck.

You should simply try to moisturize your neck with either one of those specialized products of simply extend the reach of your face cream

If you want to lose the double chin forget all the magic lotions at the department store and hit the gym. Plain and simple.

Yeah, I hear the neck and the hands are the most neglected parts. But those areas can really reveal the truth abuout your age.

I agree with beautygirl and freddy - exercise of the neck muscles will give you the lift you need, not any cream! That "Kiss the Sky" exercise is right on!

Don't forget the high protection sunblock for the neck and decollete - these areas get a lot of sun and are easily neglected.

I have that problem too, for me it's sleeping on my side is the worst, can't help it.

I use antioxidant serum from juice beauty (organic) then weekend it's emu oil on top and week nights it's Roc retinol. I see a bit of a change in the texture, but like Freddy said, no cream will well those problem.

I find after a infrared sauna treatment it looks better, not sure why but it works for me.

hope this helps

The only problem with exercise is that the two cords at the front of the neck will eventually stick out...and that look isn't so nice to me. Of course, if one has gained a lot of weight, then lost it..or maintained very low body fat...that will encourage a strange neck appearance once the age that collagen in the skin starts to decline and loose its hold..

Allergies or irritants in some products...maybe fragrances and high AHAs...could encourage drying of the neck/chest skin over time...but young skin will still have its nice plump support...not to be noticed until later years.

Tanning/burning that area will eventually cause the skin to lose its elasticity much earlier than normal.

I think having the neck "flexible" and stretched helps, no smoking, good moisturising products, being generally well hydrated and having a well balanced diet are all continually helpful. Good genes helps too!.

Basically....sun is the #1 culprit. All the areas on my fair skin that burned when I was a kid are definitely starting to show now..my eyelids being one. I haven't been in the sun since the early '80s when I worked cosmetics and saw 40 year olds looking like they were 60 year old leather. ugh. But, I still have the melanin spots from then....
Being 54 has been humbling...although I don't look it...my eyesight has me using magnifying mirrors...yep, humbling.

My half-sister, who has sunned all her life has neck and arm skin that's sagging badly but she grew up in hot/sunny climates. She still looks good for her 59 years, but the neck and arm skin detracts from the rest. She also smoked for about 30 of those years.

I think I am one of them. I have been using a lot of glycolics and in the last months my skin seems to have aged all over from over-exfoliation. It is worrying me and I am desperately seeking a cure. For now I am letting my skin rest more than usual and using milder moisture only creams.

I do agree with you Lexi, all those exfoliations with glycolic acid made my skin looks older, I also have slow down, I'm starting to believe it will make your skin look older.
