Turkey Neck

How do I get rid of this Turkey Neck?

A turkey neck is defined as the loose skin, located under the chin, that hangs down unattractively. Some people say that it resembles a turkey's wattle. The effect of loose skin dangling beneath the chin can be attributed to several different causes.

The skin on the neck and chest are the thinnest on the body. There's also a lack of oil glands in the skin of that area. Lack of beneficial oil can cause skin to become dehydrated over time. Thin skin, lack of oil and even environmental elements can cause the skin to become more lax and lose elasticity. Sagging skin can also be caused by a lack of collagen and an ability to produce moisture, which becomes a greater factor as we age.

Overall neglect of the neck and décolleté, such as not applying anti-aging products and an effective sunscreen, can also be a common cause of sagging skin. For people under 40, it's very common to tend to the face, but the neck area seems to be forgotten until the signs of sagging skin start to appear. There are other common conditions that come into play, causing loose and sagging skin on the neck, such as extreme fluctuations in weight and genetics.

One of the best ways to treat "Turkey Neck" is the consistent application of preventive-care products. Oil glands are extremely small in the neck area, so it can require extra attention to maintain and/or improve hydration. Protecting skin with a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB high-SPF sunscreen to prevent UV damage to the skin can help greatly. Proper protection keeps the collagen in skin from breaking down and losing elasticity. Of course, drinking an ample amount of water daily can also play a big part in keeping skin properly hydrated.

When you’re searching for professional skincare products, look for product treatment combinations that contains Hyaluronic Acid. This powerful ingredient can restore hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body, is known to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid is found in ligaments, joints and skin.

Starting an anti-aging regimen will give your skin the strength needed to ward off sagging and drooping, thus keeping it firm and youthful for a longer time. Look for neck and décolleté creams that contain a combination of ingredients that include Peptide Complexes. Peptides aid specifically in skin rejuvenation. Applying a cream daily that also contains antioxidants will increase the protection of delicate skin by reducing free-radical damage. Free radicals breaks down collagen and elastin fibers, making proper protection a must.

Prevention and consistent care is critical to the improvement and maintenance of neck and facial skin. Use of professional-grade skincare products to repair and rejuvenate skin is even more critical when preventative precautions haven't been practiced regularly. Consult with an Expert Esthetician about proper “at-home” skincare regimens, combining products and professional treatments that can increase the skin's elasticity and firmness. Attentive, long-term care can substantially improve most skin conditions, creating a desired, more youthful appearance.

How to Firm Sagging Neck Skin and Get Rid of Turkey Neck

The skin existing on the neck and chest area doesn't seem to get as much attention as the skin on the face. This neglect can result in the occurrence of accelerated aging and skin discolorations.
