Everyone ages differently. For some, as soon as you hit 40s, you may start seeing wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes. Some actually begin seeing these wrinkles in their 30s. Yet, there are people who are almost ageless. They could grow into their late 50s with very few wrinkles, if any. It all has to do with genetics and lifestyle.
The good news is that most people often take the initiative to work on their faces, getting facelifts and investing in creams to help with fine lines. Unfortunately though, even those who are excellent at caring for their faces sometimes forget one critical area – the neck.
The worst thing about this is that the neck is usually one of the very first parts of the body to show signs of aging. Way before eye lines become pronounced and forehead wrinkles appear, the neck will begin showing signs of wrinkling and sagging.
There are a couple of reasons why:
- The neck is over exposed to environmental elements
Most of the clothes we wear never go past the collarbone. This always leaves the neck and the face exposed to weather elements such as burning suns, freezing winters, and other toxic elements you might come across. But we always apply sunscreen on the face, right? We also regularly cleanse the face to prevent wrinkles. But how often do we remember that the neck was also exposed? How often do we apply sunscreen to the neck?
- The neck skin is really thin
The skin around the neck is also very thin compared to other areas of the body. This means that once age sets in, the appearance of the neck can deteriorate pretty quickly. Wrinkles will form without notice and before you know it the neck skin will be sagging.
- Certain sleeping positions can cause wrinkles
As if that's not enough, studies show that your sleeping positions can cause wrinkles to form on your neck. For instance, it is now common knowledge that people who use more than one pillow when sleeping can witness creasing on one side of the neck. Persistent creasing can result in wrinkling.
Other factors such as gravity can also contribute to neck aging. As gravity pulls down the already delicate neck skin, you may develop what is called a turkey wattle.
How to get a firm neck
First, if you already have a few wrinkles and can feel the sagging, grab the new SENTE neck firming cream! This neck firming cream is a unique cream engineered with patented Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) technology that combines carefully selected ingredients to enhance the health and appearance of the delicate neck skin. Those who’ve already tried the cream report three main benefits:
- Firmer and smoother skin
- Improved skin appearance
- A highly moisturized skin
Alternatively, you can consider procedures such as a neck lift where excess skin and fat in the neck area is removed and the remaining skin and muscles tightened, resulting in a firm neck with fewer lines. Unlike most mini facelifts, Dr. Beverly Fischer's facelift includes neck tightening.
