The Telltale Signs Of Aging Neck



When it comes to skin care, most women tend to focus on their faces, forgetting about the other parts of their bodies. Many women barely have time to deal with putting on their makeup and flossing, much less paying attention to their skin care needs from the neck down!

Not just face

Yet some of the most telltale signs of aging are often quite evident from the neck down. This is especially true if you haven’t been as diligent about protecting your body from sun exposure as you may have been with protecting your face. Your hands, forearms, and chest can look older than need be if the proper steps aren’t taken. If you are over 40, sun damage (brown spots, creping, and loss of elasticity) is most likely becoming more and more evident on those areas.

Protect your neck

The neck often gives away a woman’s age. The skin there is extremely delicate, with fewer of the oil glands that help facial skin heal and repair itself, so it’s much more prone to damage and scarring than the face. It is usually been neglected when moisturizers and anti-aging creams and sunscreen are carefully applied on the face each day. As a result, the skin on the neck can become wrinkled, loose, riddled with hyperpigmentation spots or broken blood vessels, and develop a crepey texture.

Neck aging

As the skin around the neck is much thinner than the face, it therefore ages more readily as a result of sun damage. While fat is lost from under the neck skin with unsightly strands and bands of skin and muscle, turkey necks, horizontal lines and double chin, the most common signs of neck aging, start to appear.

Taking care of your neck is as important as taking care of your face. Always apply sunscreen and moisturizers to the neck.
