Pesky Tech Neck strikes again!

2 min read

I’ve written about this thing ‘Tech Neck’ before – it’s something of an obsession of mine just now. I’m noticing some lines and crepiness in that area, and am trying anything I can.

So, I was pleased to receive the MGC Derma CBD Neck & Décolleté Recovery Serum last week. Now, neck issues were once the domain of the ahem, more mature among us, but no more. All that phone usage is damaging your neck tissue – all that bending down to look at your smartphone screen is causing premature wrinkling. Not to mention more damaging strain to your neck area.

That new screen time setting on my iPhone has terrified me with the amount of time my head is bent forward, and I am staring at my screen.

So, maybe time to invest in a product that is specially formulated for the neck area, like this one? Designed to tighten, lift, firm and help repair environmental damage, this contains high-purity Cannabidiols (CBD) and the highest quality hyaluronic acid, as well as Blue Lotus Flower extract and Hydrolyzed Elastin.

Cannabidiols are a buzz ingredient right now – in skincare it’s mostly hemp oil, which is full of healthy fatty acids that provide extra moisture for the skin.

The skin on your neck and decollete is different – it’s thinner and it produces less oil and lower levels of collagen and elastin – so it’s important to care for this area separately.

The active ingredients in this product include Nymphaea Coerulea (Blue Lotus) Flower extract. It acts as a natural moisturiser to help improve the look and feel of dry skin, and help balance the skin’s oil content. Hydrolyzed Collagen helps to provide and retain elasticity to the skin – it diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring suppleness and moisture. Then there’s Hydrolyzed Elastin, a naturally derived, water-soluble protein that helps attract and retain moisture.


I’ve not used this long enough yet to see any real results, but it’s great to apply. It absorbs really quickly, and fully, which is just what you need – no one wants the icky feeling of wet serum on your neck for too long.
