When you get to a certain age you know the importance of investing in a good anti-ageing face cream. We all tend to forget the neck and décolleté however, which age just as fast and probably faster because they have been neglected.
Skin in these areas tend to be delicate and show your age, this is because as we get older our oestrogen levels drop and this causes collagen to fall which in turn affects the tautness of our skin.
There are many face creams available but what about creams specifically for the neck and décolleté? To save you searching we have tested the top-rated creams and here are the results:
