A: Here I am, trying to remember whether or not I even used a moisturizer when I got out of the shower this morning, and you're asking the kind of question only a real beauty junkie could have. But like all beauty junkies who send in their questions, you remind me that there's always something new to learn. And here it is: "I prefer facial moisturizer because it's generally thicker and better for the thin skin of the neck," says Rhoda Narins, MD, past president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
Bottom line: If the skin on your neck looks anything like mine, you'll use your facial moisturizer and your body moisturizer. And you won't forget sunscreen, either.
