Much like the area around the eye, the neck is one of the first places that’ll start to show signs of being a bit knackered as we age thanks to the thin and delicate nature of its skin. And, as it loses elasticity thanks to the decline in production of collagen and elastin, several things happen: it’ll start to sag, it’ll be more prone to wrinkling and, if you’re always looking down at screens, it may also become a victim of ‘tech neck’, aka the above stuff, but worse and perhaps with a lovely little under-chin pouch.

There are several recourses of varying efficacy to target each individual gripe - most of which are complementary. The first is treatment with a laser, which works incredibly well once sagging and pouches are already evident. Top facialist Teresa Tarmey explains that two work especially well on the neck area: “I would use lipoContrast for fat reduction and something called ‘accent’ by Alma Lasers for radio frequency to tighten the skin.”

Alternatively, massage is also stimulating and can “help with the lymph to reduce puffiness and also help to lift - especially if you use a cryotherapy device, too,” advises Tarmey. Try massaging in small circles towards the area just south of your ears, where the majority of lymphs in that area sit. At home, microneedling can also be effective, as it causes “slight damage to the skin in order for it to heal, repair - and produce collagen,” thereby lifting the skin a little. 

Products designed for the neck area are also helpful, both because they contain ingredients that’ll strengthen the skin’s matrix and also because by paying attention to the area, it’s far less likely that skin will become dry and less elastic - and rubbing a moisturiser in will provide a little stimulating massage, too. Here are the ones we’d recommend using:
