Hello,
I'm 28 and very annoyed at the ever deepening horizontal lines on my neck! Is this normal for someone my age? (They extend from side to side and are quite deep). Please if anyone can help with ideas or suggestions on products!
Thanks.

They are getting really good results with Botox for the "rings" around the neck! Probably worth seeing a great dr about it.

Morphy, I had great results with Skinbiology copper petides on my neck & very quickly.
But I'm thinking that maybe the neck lines may be the result of posture or some misalignment. When you change the placement of your head, neck, shoulders do the lines seem to decrease a little? It's just that you're still very young. Which is a good thing because it's easier for your skin to bounce back. Just thought I'd mention the posture thing.
Copper peptides were great for me but I bet C serum & exfoliating with ahas would help alot too.

Regular use of Retin-A on my neck at night and C serum/sunscreen every AM have erased these for me. I agree that good posture will prevent the formation but sometimes you just can't help how you sleep. Anyhow, Retin-A and C serum thicken your skin so it's harder for creases to form. Good luck!

Sounds like you could be dehydrated in that area. The biggest mistake I made over the years is not taking care of my neck as I did my face. With consistant: cleansing, toning, moisturizing your neck area should look better rapidly. If I could get improvement with my mature skin certainly you can. Smile Chin UP now Wink

Agree a Vit. C Serum and SPF is a must.

i experience the same problem of neck lines. In fact i noticed some faint rings around my collar bone area as well. Is it even possible to hv lines there when the skin there hardly creases? Such lousy luck i have with skin!!! I only started to pay more attention to my neck recently and it is confined to moisturising (when i remember). What would u recommend as a gd routine for it? Is toning and all that really necessary? I dont even tone my face. What about a gd neck cream? What is copper peptide and what does it do? Will it really help those lines?

I have the dreaded tree rings around my neck Laughing However, mine is pretty much heredity. Everyone in my family has them. Retinoid may help soften the lines but start slowly since the skin on your neck is pretty thin and sensitive. Also using sunscreen on your neck everyday is definitely a good thing.

Hi

I was going to say you're probably dehydrated in that area too.

I was the same, never used any products on my neck and had those necklace lines also. I started using the neck/decollate cream by Decleor a couple of months back and it's made a huge difference. Now I always take my moisturiser down onto my neck area too.

20s is way too young to start using Botox. It causes muscle atrophy and after 15-20 years I think people will see really bad results from that. If you're 60 now it won't matter but at 20-30 you'll look older at 50.

I agree that vit C is a must because it thickens skin also maybe Matrixyl (you can get this from the Personal Formulator). A pH balanced glycolic acid cream may also be good as this has been shown to thinken the skin. I'm around 50 and have almost no lines after using these products for about 9 months.

Hi,

Thanks so much for the responses! Very insightful!!!

It didn't occur to me that I wasn't moisturizing my neck enough, I do have very dry skin. I also never thought of the posture issue. It's true, but I'm not quite sure I can change my posture all that much. (I'm making a point of becoming more aware of it though and I noticed someone recently posted a link to neck exercises).

About the vitamin C serum: can someone please make recommendations on specific products? Hopefully something that can be used with a moisturizer (again due to very dry skin), and won't clog pores.

Thanks! Very Happy

Hi! although i'm still torn between TNS and Alpha Derma CE, I've tried Alpha Derma CE on my throat and was really impressed with quick results on my neck lines. I followed it with the comparitively inexpenive (8 oz., I think for $16.00) Elastin/Collagen lotion in their Janson-Beckett spa line, which is huge, and much less expensive. Also, I got a coupon for $10.00 off my next order, and I asked for a sample of one of their other products and got that for free.

i've recently noticed this problem on myself (just turned 35).....although i have been gymming it for 18 years now without a break and have ALWAYS looked after myself to the enth degree....the ONLY thing i have changed is my upright rows after a back problem. I have ALWAYS done them and i'm thinking this had probably been the muscle that had kept them at bay. My traps (this is the muscle that is around the area where these lines appear)had always been given a good workout prior....

One major thing which people haven't mentioned here is the way that people sleep. Do most people (as i do) sleep on their side or with their arms above their head. I think you'll find that if you do it's actually creasing the neck for the entire 8 or so hours that you are asleep....you just have to feel your skin to see the creases it's making.

i'm now trying to sleep on my back with my arms beside myself and it does seem to be helping....hard though as i've done it my whole life.

my partner who is 10 years my junior has the same lineage as me and is a side sleeper with arms above head too........

anyway going to start using some retin A cream, get my Trapezius exercises back into my gym program and try to sleep on my back now so i'm not creasing the cr@p out of my neck when i sleep : )

Also, i'm assuming that sleeping in an airconditioned room hadn't been helping my skin so have eliminated my airconditioner in place of a ceiling fan.....gotta love ageing :P I guess all we can do is "Be the Best We Can Be" though......

Hi Morphy, Skinceuticals C E Ferulic is excellent for dry skin, and it's an excellent product!
