Sticking My Neck Out

People my age show their age with their necks. The most common signs of age are the development of vertical muscle bands, sagging skin and excess fat deposits. 

I am lucky. Seventy-two years old and my neck shows none of those signs (so far). 

However, once upon a time, I did have sun damage on the sides of my neck. A Sephora sales representative suggested some products, but like the foundations I have used, they only covered the damage temporarily and sooner or later (usually sooner), the damaged red skin showed through.

Perusing the Avon catalog one day, their Dramatic Firming Cream caught my eye and I bought a tub to try on my neck. Using it daily for a few weeks, I noticed some improvement – the redness was less red. Using it daily for a few months, the redness was gone! Wow – A miracle product!

Although the redness was gone, I have continued to use the Avon Firming Cream every morning after I moisturize my face.

For what it’s worth, this post was inspired by a Who What Wear article that described “15 Creams Help Firm the Neck,” but did not include the Avon Firming Cream that I have used effectively for about ten years. 

And so it goes.

NOTE: People are asking about the wig I am wearing in the accompanying photo. It is Sandie from Noriko, color is Nutmeg-F, size is average.
