Can you tell me what you think are the best neck creams? I'm starting to get those lines that circle around my neck and I think my neck is starting to sag a bit.

I want to do something about it now before it gets worse. My mom's neck looks pretty bad and she's thinking of having plastic surgery to fix it. That scares me!

Editor's Note

Hello Sandra,

Thanks for your question regarding neck creams. I have to be honest with you, neck creams may help hydrate the skin and vitamin enriched creams can help feed the skin and slow the aging process.

But, the whole drooping neck issue is not so much about the skin as it is about the neck muscles. Specifically, the platysma muscle.

This muscle starts at the upper chest and stretches from one end of your chest to the other and wraps around the neck and up over the jaw bone.

As we age this muscle becomes stiff, short, and loses structure which not only causes turkey neck but eventually you will start to see sagging around your jaw line which results in jowls, turned down mouth corners and marionette lines.

I know it sounds depressing, but it's fixable without surgery.

Certain facial exercises can help tighten this muscle.

I know it works because I've been using these exercises on myself and have seen a big difference in my whole face.

The results were first visible on the upper part of my face first (this part tones up quickly) and now I'm seeing results on my lower jawline and neck.

I'm taking the 5 week challenge and will post before and after pictures of my neck soon.

Please start now before it gets worse. It's still fixable but harder and longer to lift things back up once they've begun to sag.

Regarding creams, here is some advice:

1. Retinol Creams: Some creams have something called retinol, which comes from vitamin A. It's great because it makes your skin produce more collagen and helps get rid of old skin cells. This can make the skin on your neck tighter and less saggy. Look for creams with a little bit of retinol, not too much, to avoid irritation.

2. Hyaluronic Acid Creams: Hyaluronic acid is like a sponge for your skin. It holds onto water and makes your skin look plump and less wrinkly. Creams with hyaluronic acid give your neck a big drink of water.

3. Niacinamide Creams: Niacinamide is like a vitamin for your skin. It helps your skin stay healthy and elastic. It can also smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on your neck.

4. And most important! Don't forget about sunscreens!

Moisturizers infused with sunscreen are indispensable to protect your skin from the sun's rays. The sun can make your skin age faster and make it sag more. Creams with sunscreen keep your neck safe.
