5 Surprising Things that are Ageing Your Neck

Here’s how to tackle those pesky neck wrinkles

We like to think that we’re skin savvy; we know the all-important rules of double cleansing, always wearing and re-applying SPF, and using exfoliants no more than three times a week.

But, many of us only apply these cardinal rules to our face, and you’ll be shocked to know that an area we really should be focusing on, is none other than our neck. Not only does our neck have thinner skin than our face, but damaging external factors paired with a lack of TLC can cause premature (and accelerated) skin ageing.

What Causes Neck Ageing?

  1. Tech. Looking down at your phone/laptop promotes a poor neck posture, and we know we’re all guilty of looking at technology (nearly) every minute of every day.
  1. Consistent movement. Think about it – your neck is always moving around; when you look up and down, to each side. This frequent stretching motion (paired with the decline in collagen and elastin) can cause accelerated skin ageing.
  1. Your sleeping position. For example, if you sleep with two pillows, you’re likely to experience creasing on the side of your neck.
  1. Neglect. While you might be on top of your skincare routine for your face and body, it’s common for the neck to be forgotten, which is particularly damaging when the skin on your neck is extremely thin and fragile.
  1. Gravity. The constant pull-down of the loose skin on your neck causes many signs of ageing, including sagging and fine lines.

How Can You Tackle Neck Ageing?

A consistent skincare routine (including moisturiser, SPF, retinol, vitamin C, and exfoliants), along with collage supplements, and the STYLPRO Fabulous Firmer can assist in the journey to a smoother, firmer neck. Cosmetic services like Botox in Clearwater, FL may also help reduce the appearance of neck wrinkles.
