When was the last time you remembered to treat your neck and chest area during your nightly skincare routine? If you’re like us, the answer is probably pretty close to never. But since the decollete can actually start to show signs of aging as early as your 30s, you’re going to want to invest in one of these treatments, STAT.
If you’ve been lounging poolside in bikinis all summer like Rihanna, you may have been made all too aware that the skin on your neck and chest is a bit more wrinkled than it used to be. Even though we forget to treat this area, it’s still susceptible to fine lines and loss of elasticity (aka turkey neck). Keep reading for expert tips on staying wrinkle-free, and shop our gallery for our top creams, serums and in-office treatments.
“The neck and decollete region is often neglected which exasperates the effect of environmental aggressors and accelerate the aging process,” Smitha Rao, VP of Product Development at StriVectin explains. “The neck has dramatically different underlying architecture and overall posture drastically impacts how quickly the visible signs of aging appear,” she goes on to say. Here are some of our top ways to help prevent and treat the neck and decollete area:
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum: The all-natural serum uses botanicals and plant oils to smooth and hydrate the neck area while protecting it against environmental damage and improving firmness and elasticity.
StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream: The patented technology in this cream helps to tighten, lift and firm the neck and decollete area, while also leaving it moisturized with ingredients like hyaluronic acid. Use it nightly on clean, dry skin, smoothing onto the area in upward strokes to help reverse the skin-sagging effects of gravity over time.

Ultherapy: If the damage has already been done, the non-surgical ultrasound treatment, Ultherapy, can be used to gradually lift the skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The ultrasound imaging lets the practitioner see which areas should receive the most concentrated amounts of ultrasound energy, and the treatment works to stimulate your skin’s collagen to naturally fight the signs of aging.
