The support mechanisms of the neck and throat are also relatively weak, and therefore less able to battle against the gravitational pull we all experience as we get older.
Causes of wrinkles around the neck
As we grow older, our body fat is redistributed around the body. Unfortunately one of the places we tend to lose fat is the neck, along with the eyes and cheeks. Lack of fat under the skin means that there is a reduced level of support and hence why older people tend to have sagging bands, often referred to as turkey neck, of skin around the neck and throat.
Other causes can be a bad diet, a poor skin care routine, excessive sun exposure, or a combination of all these things.
The best course of action is to treat your neck and chest in the same way that you do your face. Cleanse, tone and moisturise the entire area on a daily basis, and make sure you always wear sunscreen when exposing the skin to sunlight or harsh conditions like wind, rain and snow.
Because the neck is such a delicate area, some treatments used on other parts of the body are simply not suitable for neck wrinkles. The safest course of action is to apply a rejuvenating skin cream specially designed for the neck; however if you want more immediate results, some skin peels and laser therapies will work well. As with any form of skin treatment, it is crucial that you receive treatment from a trained dermatologist or surgeon.
