If you’ve noticed on Snapchat, I can’t stop—well…noticing—the lines on my neck. Sadly, I know they’re all there as a result of days of past under the sun with no protection, or worse yet with no protection and plenty of tanning oil (ewwwwww). And whenever I see those lines, I can’t help but think about how one’s neck is one of the first “giveaways” when talking about age…do you find that’s true too? In doing a little research apparently, 70% of women say signs of aging on their neck are more noticeable than around their face, yet only 9% use anti-aging products specifically designed for this area.*
I’d like to think I’m religious about putting a daily SPF on my face by now, but I’m just as guilty as the rest for forgetting to protect my neck as well. And with a whole what-feels-like-a-pantry-full stash of skincare products by my sink, it’s no wonder I forgot the SPF for so many years. There’s a lot going on in my skincare routine! Which brings me to how I recently tried RoC Skincare‘s answer to an all-in-one moisturizer that nourishes skin just as much as it protects it. Enter the MULTI CORREXION® 5 IN 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream With SPF 30.
I’m pleased to report that this anti-aging cream has been gentle enough for even this sensitive skin of mine (and it smells divine). I think one of the scary things about a lot of anti-aging products is that they’re actually pretty potent stuff. Years ago, I wouldn’t have balked at that if the results were showing, but these days I find that my skin has become even more sensitive and really needs gentle products that won’t cause it to become blotchy or dried out. Instead, the rich cream absorbs so nicely, which I imagine is my skin’s way of letting me know how badly it needed that added moisture and Vitamin E. And recently, I’ve been talking about streamlining all of my routines, so the fact that I am able to use the MULTI CORREXION® cream on my chest, neck and face is key for me.
So my verdict? Well I’m on week two and am already seeing great results, which is quite an impressive feat in my book. Tell me, are you addressing sun damage on your chest and neck now, too? Truly, MKR
