How easy is it to avoid turkey neck? Not that difficult if you follow these steps from NetDoctor…
Years of sun damage leave us with horizontal lines running around our necks, but these can be softened by adapting your skincare regime.
Exfoliate your neck and chest with either a gentle cleansing brush or a glycolic acid, which will slough away dead skin cells and allow serums and moisturisers to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Choose a neck-specific moisturiser, but make sure your day cream contains niacin – a B vitamin that strengthens the skin barrier to attract and lock in moisture.
Smooth on a vitamin C-rich serum at least three times a week too.
At night, go for a neck cream with hyaluronic acid that will attract and trap moisture into your neck and niacinamide to repair environmental damage.
Use plenty to allow maximum nourishment while you sleep.
Stop the sag
Your neck gets saggy as collagen and elastin fibres weaken. You can delay the droop with a dedicated daily application of a SPF 30 sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays.
Use one that is designed for your face, but extend it down to your neck and chest, applied in upward sweeps.
Better still cover your neck completely with a scarf. Pick a neck-lifting cream too – it should contain retinol and peptides to encourage production of collagen to add firmness and smoothness to the neck.
Blotchy pigmentation thanks to sun damage is a major problem for the neck and upper chest – areas that are often exposed, but unprotected.
Vitamin E and olive oil will nourish dried-out skin, while vitamin C will help to fade discolouration.
If the pigmentation is particularly obvious, ingredients like kojic or azelaic acid or licorice extract will lighten dark spots, but results can take months.
Alpha hydroxy acid-based creams help the lightening agents get deeper into your skin for improved results.
Encouraging cell turnover is another great way to combat uneven skin, go for a chemical exfoliant, like glycolic acid.
Perfect your posture
Keeping your neck long will help combat those pesky horizontal lines, so sleep on your back on just one silk pillowcase and exercise the muscles in your neck.
Sit up straight and tilt your head to look at the ceiling. Bring your bottom lip over your top lip, as if you’re trying to touch your nose, and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
Make the most of make up
A good primer will blur wrinkles for the appearance of a smooth neck.
Apply it from the base of your neck up to your face to disguise loss of firmness around the jawline.
Use a bronzer to make your neck appear more toned. Go for a matte formula in a shade that blends with your skin tone and sweep it up the centre of your neck towards your c
