Dermalogica revolutionized the skin care industry when it emerged into the marketplace in 1986 with innovative and timely formulations, and we haven’t stopped since.
The innately digital world we live in now has left room for somewhat of a new skin qualm: tech-neck. According to Dr. K Daniel Riew for Health Matters, tech-neck refers to the ways in which we stress our muscles while using the pieces of technology that have become a very regular part of our day-to-day routines. Tech-neck results in shoulder and neck pain stiffness, but Professional Skin Therapist Nyssa Grays tells us that there’s even more to it. As per Grays, the “...hours spent craning our necks over our phones, tablets and laptops have been deepening the creases in our neck and décolleté”. The fact of the matter is, our skin is our body’s largest organ and it covers more than our face. No matter how healthy our faces look, our neckline can tell a different story. This is because the skin on our neck is thinner, more delicate, and more vulnerable to sun damage, photosensitization from fragrances, and the wrinkle-deepening motion of looking down at our devices than the rest of our skin. The skin on our neck is also prone to losing strength and flexibility with age as our neck muscles weaken underneath. All these factors can exacerbate the appearance of lines, creases and sagging.
Enter Dermalogica’s new Neck Fit Contour Serum, your neck’s best personal trainer. This lightweight, roll-on serum immediately tightens skin, and tones it over time, for a more visibly lifted and sculpted appearance. Comprising our high-performance Flex Lift Contour Technology, which acts like invisible mesh to provide a visible lifting and tightening effect, this leave-on serum can be used as a standalone serum for your neck and décolleté, and can easily be layered under your moisturizer of choice. It also smooths fine lines and helps protect skin against pollution, which can lead to premature signs of skin aging.
This serum has been formulated to tone skin over time with Dermalogica’s plant-based science. Rye Seed Extract works with a novel Palmitoyl Tripeptide-42 and Rambutan Extract to deliver Retinol-like results, visibly smoothing fine lines, firming and toning skin. A Resurrection Plant-inspired polysaccharide helps strengthen skin's moisture barrier for a smooth, even appearance. Griffonia Seed Extract provides antioxidant defence to help safeguard results against free radicals.
The squeeze tube packaging comes with an on and off dispensing function, leaving room for easy access without the worry of over-squeezing. Grays tells us that the stainless-steel roller tip through which the product is dispensed is an optimal tool for even dispersion- just roll upwards four times on each side of your neck, and two times across your collarbone starting from the middle and moving outwards.
The Neck Fit Contour Serum comes with personalized neck workouts to help sculpt your neck's appearance from both the inside and the outside. While Neck Fit Contour Serum trains your skin to look tighter and more toned, you can train your neck muscles to appear longer, leaner and more contoured – complete with guidance from a Dermalogica skin therapist. To get your personalized workout routine, visit neckfitcontour.com available on mobile. There are three workouts with their own focuses available to be used with this innovative new product: tightening and toning your skin, strengthening your neck muscles, and last but not least, stretching and relaxing your muscles.
Grays tells us that the ultimate pairings for this incredible product would be Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50, Sound Sleep Cocoon, and Phyto-Nature Firming Serum. For best results, she recommends setting up a free virtual consultation with a Professional Skin Therapist for a personalized skin regimen. Book your consultation here.
