Terms like turkey neck, crêpey skin and necklace lines are just some of the everyday ways we describe the bits under our chins that give our age away and makes us a little wistful of the smooth plumpness of youth. The good news is help is at hand.
Age shows up in certain places first: the hands, eyes, neck and chest. These areas are more delicate and have thinner skin than other parts of the body. They are also the parts of our bodies that receive the most exposure to attack from the sun, free radicals and the elements. As such, they are guaranteed to show signs of wear and tear first.
The good news is you can do something about, by protecting your skin, using targeted products, exercising and a healthy diet.
Where the neck is concerned, over time we lose muscle tone and collagen production slows down, which together adds up to more sagging and more wobble as the skin becomes unsupported.
Using a neck cream or gel that helps to keep the skin supple and moisturised and targets collagen production will make a difference. Combine this with neck exercises that work on muscle fitness, and your neck has a fighting chance of staying youthful for longer. Yes please!
Oh and another thing, start early! Future fit your neck because if it’s not a problem for you today it might be in the future – don’t let turkey neck creep up on you. Prevention is far better than cure.
