As we age, our skin starts showing signs of aging. Our face gets wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, bags under the eyes, pigmentation, and much more. Just like our face, our neck has lines or wrinkles, which worsen with smoking or exposure to UV rays. Your necklines or signs of aging are somehow determined in part by genetics. No matter what you do, some amount of neck wrinkling is inevitable. But products and lifestyle changes may work for your neck. Even repeated motions can cause necklines; you must be mindful of neck movements.
Below are some tips to take care of your neck and prevent it from aging.
How to hold your phone
We often bow down to look at our phones, which can also lead to tech neck, causing soreness or ache. This usual practice of looking down forms lines and permanently leads to wrinkles. Generally, all wrinkles are formed in part due to repeated movements. Smokers often get wrinkles around their mouths. Rather than looking down at your phone, you may want to try holding your phone near your face and front. This change can prevent you from looking downward every time, which will form your necklines.
Vitamin C serum
Vitamin C serum is helpful because it has antioxidant properties that are great for the skin. Surprisingly, some studies have found that vitamin c has the potential to reverse UV rays damage and other environmental factors.
People regularly follow a skincare routine by cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and applying serum and sunscreen on their faces but conveniently forget to moisturize their necks. Research suggests that creams have the potential to improve self-perceived signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. It is better to look for hyaluronic acid as it has a moisturizing effect.
Don’t forget to use sunscreen
It is a vital part of your skincare routine, as stepping out without sunscreen can damage your skin. Apply 30 SPF and do it every 2-3 hours.
Apply retinoid cream
It is derived from vitamin A and is one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients. Take advice from the doctor as it may cause extreme dryness for some.
Smoking causes premature aging and is harmful to health in many ways. The smoke damages collagen and nicotine constricts blood vessels, which means less oxygen in the skin. Studies have found that people who smoke are more likely to have wrinkles than those who don’t.
Fillers are quite popular on the face, but now people are turning to neck Botox for aging. They are injections that block chemical signals telling muscles to contract.
