Dermalogica has launched a new anti-aging product that rejuvenates your appearance by restoring the natural and youthful contour of your neck. The product claims to reverse the visible signs of photo-aging and improve the firmness of your skin. Keep reading to know everything about Dermalogica’s new Neck Fit Contour serum, and whether or not its worth the price tag.
Dermalogica’s Neck Fit Contour Serum
According to the dermatologists, a considerable proportion of younger women are now reporting pre-mature skin-aging associated with technology use. Studies suggest that the repetitive strain that happens from using these devices can cause headaches, migraines, jaw pain, neck lines and wrinkles. This is commonly referred to as ‘tech neck’ or ‘text neck.’
Neck Skin Vs. Face Skin
Is there any difference between the skin on you neck and on the face? Well, when comparing between the two areas – the skin on the neck is dryer than the skin on your face due to the difference in the sebaceous gland density. Sebum naturally has a high content of Vitamin E and squalene. Similarly, the skin is more thinner, making it less resilient and more prone to photo-aging than the rest of your face.
Your neck skin is thinner and has less naturally occurring oils, which also makes it more prone to wrinkles.
Tech Neck: Prevention is the Key!
Here’s the deal. Although sunscreen and skincare can help (albeit to some extent), the key here is prevention. Elevate your computer monitor to set it at your eye level. Purchase a tablet stand holder to elevate your device, or simply, bring your phone up towards your face instead of constantly looking down at it.
Dermalogica’s Neck Fit Contour
The Dermalogica Neck Fit Contour serum features a blend of skin-boosting ingredients like peptides and antioxidants to support the skin’s natural collagen production. The serum uses patented ‘Flex Lift Contour Technology,’ which ‘acts like invisible mesh to provide a visible lifting and tightening effect.’
- Targets the often-neglected area: neck and décolleté.
- Visibly lifts, tightens and firms the neck and decollete.
- Delivers antioxidant protection against free radical damage.
- Comes equipped with a built-in applicator.
- The applicator can be turned on/off to secure the serum.
- Palmitoyl Rripeptide-42 – supports collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Griffonia Seed Extract – antioxidant that helps reduce skin pigmentation
- Rambutan Extract– soothes, nourishes and rejuvenates skin.
- Resurrection Plant-inspired polysaccharide helps hydrate and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
Here’s how Dermalogica advises the product to be used: “Turn the applicator on. Tilt chin up and roll applicator over entire neck, from the décolleté up to the jawline. Gently squeeze tube to dispense a thin layer of serum while rolling. Return the applicator to the “off” position. Continue rolling it in an upward motion over skin to massage in the serum. Keep chin up until serum dries. Then apply your recommended Dermalogica moisturizer, if needed. Use this serum morning and night.”
Yes, this high-end serum comes with a steep price tag, but considering that it contains a chock-full of actives, I feel its worth the splurge. First things first, the serum comes in a tube equipped with a metal roller which dispenses and helps evenly spread the serum over the neck area contributing to the lifting effect of the serum. I like the fact that the applicator stimulates micro-circulation, and the metal tip provides a cooling sensation during the application. I just turn the applicator on, squeeze out some serum, turn off and then rub it all over my neck in an upward motion.
In my case, I’ve been using the serum for its lifting, toning and firming effects and have been using it for a little over a week now. What I love about it is that it forms a breathable invisible ‘mesh’ that tightens and creates a temporary subtle lifting effect. Not to mention, it keeps your skin hydrated and the roller-ball guided massage helps relieve all the tension in my neck.
Although its still early to comment on how it fares based on the brand’s anti-aging claims, but I have noticed a slight tightening effect after application. The only downside would be that the lightweight texture absorbs quickly, and that you might need to dispense more of the serum to cover the entire neck region.
Tips to Maximize Benefit From The Neck Fit Contour Serum:
You can take TLC to the next level by storing this serum in the fridge. If you want, you can also access Dermalogica’s personalized neck workouts on neckfitcontour.com (mobile only) to help sculpt your neck’s appearance.
When it comes to anti-aging routine, there’s no instant fix. Long-lasting effects can only be seen with consistent use as well as early prevention of skin photo-ageing. However, when it comes to what ingredients you should look for in a neck cream – vitamins A, C and E should be on top of your list. Followed by AHAs (glycolic, citric, lactic), peptides and other hydrating ingredients. So how does Dermalogica’s Neck Fit Contour serum fare? Well simply put, whether you’re 65 or 25, it couldn’t hurt to give this one a go.
