Compared to the skin of other parts of your body, the skin on your neck will begin to lose its elasticity relatively fast during the aging process. There are a few things, however, that you can do to help keep your neck looking youthful and prevent a wrinkly appearance down the line.

Some of the most important things you should do when trying to maintain your youthful appearance are exercise more, drink a lot of water, and always use sunscreen when you go outside. In addition to these more common tips, you should exfoliate to improve your skin’s texture, moisturize, and get plenty of sleep. It’s easy to forget these, so it is also useful to make a journal to help you remember.

If, however, your neck begins to develop wrinkles despite practicing these tips, you may be in need of a platysmaplasty.
