crepey neck - miracle cream / half decent cream suggestions?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon63, Feb 26, 2011.

  1. To reward me for turning 35 it has been decreed that I should get a crepey neck. I hate it and somehow find it more distressing that any facial crunkles I might be getting. I am willing to splash out on something that might do some good - any ideas?

  3. Much sympathy but no solution, I am afraid. I have bought Gatineau throat and neck gel, can't see any difference. ALso I use Decelor aromessence, it feels lovely but I don't know if it works. If it is any comfort at all I think I started to become aware of my neck at about your age; fifteem years on I don't think it has got significantly worse.
     
  4. I have good skin and my neck is a crepe-free zone. It's genetic and also, perhaps, down to NOT using chemical potions.
    I use pure creams made with pure ingredients.
    Too many people are fooled by the prices.

    Bloody Nora - you're unhappy with your neck at 35! Work on the creams but tbh the only real solution is get used to it. So sorry[​IMG]
     
  6. For example, ... ... ...
     
  7. Nivea Creme. It's brilliant.
     
  8. Nivea's full of lanolin.

    It encourages hair growth.

    I suppose the hair would hide the crepey neck...
     
  9. I use Nivea Hand Cream ... have done for ever as my Mum did
     
  10. Well that explains the palms of my hands
     
  11. Rot!

    I have a lovely hairless face and neck, I'll have you know.
     
  12. I bet it's not crepey - there's probably a single throat line, and you think that's crepe.
    Moisturiser-wise, I recommend Dr Hauschka (no chemicals or lanolin) or a brand called Akamuti (inexpensive, but entirely natural)
    Or, if you can be bothered, you could make your own!

    INGREDIENTS: Parafinnum liquidum, PEG-150, methylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, propylparaben, simethicone, BHT, parfum, limonene, geraniol, linalool, hydroxycitronellal, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexane carboxaldehyde, citronellol

    PURE parafinnum liquidum, I assume?
     
  14. I bought it in Amsterdam. It's all in Dutch - but ok - point taken.
    It makes my skin look fantastic. I also like Vaseline and Waitrose Baby Bottom Cream - which IS pure!
     
  15. I am 54 and my neck is just starting to think about crepiness (I met sparkly_duck and Victoria_Plum on Wed; please put me right if I'm kidding myself here) although my face is cracked like an old china jug.
    I have only ever used whatever (cheap) face cream I was using at the time on it and thus conclude that like so many things, it's genetic, which is why expensive cream manufacturers can wheel out a bunch of unlined uncrepey goddesses and claim it's their product that dunnit. My mother had good skin but she put that down to never having gone on a diet.
     
  16. PURE parafinnum liquidum, I assume?
    Might have gone over her head.
     
  17. Nivea! I thought we were going to be treated to creme de la mer or some concoction made by hippies!
    Listen, beestoni - the reason why your neck is going a bit wrinkly is quite possibly sun damage. You should use SPF every day of the year on face, neck and chest if you're wearing a low cut top. UV light damages collagen. You can probably halt the damage by buying a creme with SPF 15 - you don't even have to use a posh one on your nrck, as it's not a place where people tend to get spots.
     
  18. It is genetic, largely. I agree about the expensive potions - or expensive make-up, come to that - it's all a huge con.
     
  19. Hey. Don't knock it. It's Dutch Nivea, remember.
     
  20. Staying out of the sun helps too. I may be the colour of a corpse, but at least my skin's good.
