Plus, we move our neck a lot! And put it in funny positions for hours. Whether we’re turning to look at someone, hunched over our laptops, nodding along on a Zoom call or sleeping, our neck is working hard for us all day (and night).
And don’t forget, your neck also faces the same external aggressors as our face - the weather, pollution, you name it, our neck is getting it in the, well, neck. But while age and repetitive motions can all contribute to neck wrinkles, there are other factors:
- Genetics - a saggy neck is determined in part by your genes
- Smoking - this has an enormously dehydrating effect on the skin and wrinkles will look more defined on parched skin
- Not using adequate sun protection - UV light is damaging to the skin without using good protection
