Thanksgiving is a beautiful holiday, but now that it’s over, it’s time to diminish the turkey wattle.
By Susie Augustin
As our natural collagen production declines with aging, skin loses its elasticity. If you’ve neglected your neck, it’s no wonder that you’re seeing sagging skin along your jawline and neck area. Some of us may even have what resembles a wattle. The cause may be hereditary, unintentional, or neglect. Is there anything we can do? Is it too late to address neck wrinkles?
While prevention is always recommended when it comes to aging and skincare, there are also ways to help repair damage. You will want to use an anti-aging serum or a firming neck cream that works, one that targets skin tightening and firming.
Does Your Neck Match Your Face?
Some of us have a prematurely aging neck. Similar to dry, spotted, aging hands that look a decade older than your face, you might have noticed that you’re having the same issue with your neck. What is your lifestyle? Are you a sun lover who spends time out on the water, or a voracious reader who props up with pillows with your head bent? You may have more sun damage or neck lines than some. Sagging skin along the jaw and neck, along with neck wrinkles and age spots are a clear indication of loss of skin elasticity.
Why Does the Neck Age Prematurely?
Thin Skin • The neck has thin skin, and as it gets thinner from aging, the result is sagging skin.
Collagen & Elastin • Aging, neglect, and sun damage cause loss of collagen and elastin.
Sun Damage • Sun exposure breaks down collagen and elasticity, causing loss of firmness.
Neglect • Skipping your neck when it comes to your skincare rituals.
Hereditary • Genetics can contribute to the way your neck ages.
Tech Neck • Horizontal lines form when necks are bent down looking at screens.
Sleeping Position • Side and stomach sleeping, and even propping up in an unnatural position to read or watch TV, can cause neck wrinkles and skin folding.
Weight Loss • An excess loss of fat can cause loss of fullness in the neck area, resulting in loose skin and fold lines.
