When aging occurs, certain places on the body, like the neck, easily loose fat. Without the support of fat, the skin on the neck becomes loose and forms wrinkles.
Horizontal rings usually show up around the neck before the vertical wrinkles. These horizontal rings around the neck are called venus’s rings and appear because of repeated neck stretching.
Neck wrinkles can also come from:
- Sleeping wrinkles
- Being overweight
- Poor diet
Include your neck when cleansing and moisturizing the face. This can help slow the progression of wrinkles on your neck.
First, always apply at least 15 SPF sunscreen to the face and neck 15 minutes before sun exposure. There are many moisturizers available which contain SPF. The neck is more easily damaged by UVA and UVB rays because the neck contains fewer melanocytes, the cells which produce melanin. Melanin protects skin from the sun’s rays and gives the skin color.
Improve skin’s appearance by getting enough:
- Vitamins A, C, D, and K
- Omega 3
- Healthy oils
Neck wrinkles can be treated by:
- Skin peels
- Neck lifts
- Plastic surgery
- Laser surgery
But surgery and peels are unnecessarily drastic measures to smooth out neck wrinkles, consider alternatives to face lifts.
Try a more simple, yet still effective approach by using Dr. Perricone’s Neuropeptide Facial Contour. This topical cream tightens the face, jawline, and throat delivering results of a non-surgical face lift.
Neuropeptide Facial Contour contains:
- Neuropeptides to smooth skin
- DMAE to firm skin
- Phospholipids to repair skin
