Why You Should Not Ignore Your Neck

Why you should not ignore your neck

The appearance of your neck skin can really betray your age. Most of the time when attending our face skin routine we tend to ignore our neck, but this part of our body is the most common area that is in need of wrinkle treatments.

The skin on your neck is in most of cases much thinner and sensitive/delicate than the skin on your face, (quite similar with the skin of your eyelids) meaning it is predisposed to signs of aging and sun damage. In absence of collagen, the skin is more likely to develop premature wrinkles.

What are the most common causes of wrinkles on the neck?

Aging is a normal part of our lives, neck lines and wrinkles being a thing that comes with it.

Along with aging, the most dangerous factor is being exposed to UV light most of the time and not using sunscreen. Smoking is another cause of premature aging, because tobacco damages collagen causing a lot more wrinkles than a person who does not smoke.

Outside of your control may be factors such as metabolic processes, hormones and needless to say: genes.

Another reason can be the movement of your skin in certain positions, repetitive action such as looking down to your phone too often. These actions can be the foundation of noticeable wrinkles over time.
