It is important to me to treat my neck and chest areas as a continuation of my face. This being said, daily application and reapplication of sunscreen is my number-one priority. In addition to this, I apply my treatments of growth factors, peptides and antioxidants onto my neck to promote and protect the collagen and elastin. A topical hyaluronic acid is also important to keep my neck supple.

 My favorite products for my neck include the Alastin Restorative Neck Complex with TriHex Technology ($123) to help remove, rebuild, and replenish collagen and elastin. I follow this with NeoCutis Bio Serum Firm ($275) because it has growth factors and peptides to give proven results of improved firmness, elasticity, tone, and texture which are seen in as little as six days and continue to improve over time. Growth factors are important as we age and our cells need a little extra stimulation. After our early 20s, we begin to lose collagen-building abilities. If I need more hydration, I love to use SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator ($184) which immediately [moisturizes] the skin. Lastly, but most importantly, I apply Colorescience Sunscreen Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 ($45) which is chemical free.

I use many noninvasive treatments in combination [with my at-home products] to keep my neck supple. Hydrafacials are a regular procedure to cleanse, nourish, and hydrate the face and neck. I do Ultherapy every 12 to 18 months to help tighten the skin. Ultherapy is a customized ultrasound treatment that goes deeply to stimulate collagen and elastin. To help remove superficial sun damage and stimulate skin rejuvenation from the top down, I do laser therapies such as Permea, Fraxel, Pico, or IPL starting in the fall.”
