As people begin to age, they expect to start seeing fine lines and wrinkles on their faces, but they are often surprised to find them on their necks. Lines on the neck are an extremely common sign of aging, especially because the skin in that area is so thin and so sensitive. Luckily, it is not impossible to avoid fine lines on the neck and, with a little bit of effort, a smooth, healthy neck is possible at any age.
Use a Product Specifically for Neck Wrinkles
Just as you use a different product on your face than you do on your legs or back, you should be using a product on your neck that is formulated specifically for that purpose. There are many firming lotions and creams designed specifically to prevent wrinkles on the thin skin around your neck. Although these creams should not replace any of the products currently in your skin care routine, they are a very beneficial addition if you are worried about the neck area in particular.
Give Equal Attention with Sunscreen
We are often so worried about wrinkles on our faces that we forget to pay attention to our necks until it is too late. This is especially true when it comes to protection from the sun. Many times, we carefully apply sunscreen to our faces and then just spread whatever is left on our hands onto our necks. In order to avoid fine lines caused by sun exposure, you must use an amount of sunscreen on your neck that is equal to the amount on your face. Take the time to apply it separately to protect every area of skin that is going to be exposed to the sun.
Be Careful of Your Posture
In many cases, fine lines on the neck are simply caused by the way that you are holding your head. For example, if you often stand with a phone wedged between your shoulder and your ear, you are bending your neck in a way that creates wrinkles in the skin. As you go through the day, be conscious of how you are holding your head and how often you are bending your neck forward and to the side. A few simple adjustments could go a long way in preventing fine lines on your neck.
