The skin on the neck is unique unto itself. It’s thinner and less resilient than facial and body skin. This delicate quality, paired with regular exposure to environmental stresses and consistent neglect in most skincare regimens, can make the signs of aging more prominent on the neck.

Visible Effects

Signs of neck aging can appear as horizontal-band wrinkles, lax skin that lengthens the silhouette (leading to ‘turkey neck’), or stiff and rigid muscles that can make the neck appear rigid and thick. Accumulative sun exposure and photosensitizing fragrance can also contribute to age spots and an uneven skin tone on the neck.

Underlying Causes

Sun damage, which causes 90 per cent of the signs of skin aging, and diminished cell renewal, due to the aging process, contribute to these neck-aging concerns.
