6 Easy & Natural ways to Prevent Neck Wrinkles

There's one thing that happens to all of us no matter how much we take care of our skin — neck wrinkles.

But that doesn't mean that it's a lost cause. There are several easy and natural ways to slow down or prevent the wrinkling of your neck's skin, which we will share in today's blog.

A quick prelude before continuing on with this blog's skincare tips: we, at Yu-Be, view fine lines and wrinkles as signs of wisdom and life experiences that have shaped you into the wonderful human being you are today! To us, they are something to be proud of and believe that there is no shame in the ways that one's skin develops over time. That being said, we also see no wrong in having personal skincare goals, so if you'd like to learn how to reduce or prevent neck wrinkles, try adding these following tips into your daily routine for smoother skin on your neck:

 

📵 Keep your head and chin level when looking at your phone. Not only neck wrinkles, but also extra double chins, tend to form as a result of angling your head downwards to look at your phone (aka "Tech Neck"). 

🛌 If you're a back sleeper, try using a thinner pillow for sleeping. Similar to the "tech neck" concept, you want to prevent your neck from bending downwards as much as possible.

🥛 Drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day to help keep your skin plump and to improve its elasticity.

💆 Massage your neck — the right way. Use one hand to hold down the skin on the back of your neck, while with the other hand gently press three fingers into your skin, moving from the side of your neck until you reach your throat. Do the same for both sides.

  • It's always best to massage your skin with an oil or heavy moisturizer, to avoid irritating the delicate skin on your neck. The Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream is a fantastic cream for facial/body massages, as it is thick yet silky smooth and provides a healing hydration for tired, dehydrated skin.

🧘 Stretch - look upwards, stretching your neck, and hold for 30 seconds. Then turn your head from right to left in this position slowly for another 30 seconds. If you feel any pain while performing this stretch, try reducing how far left or right you look. If you still feel pain, skip this exercise.

Use sunscreen at all times, even indoors! Sun rays can ruin the elasticity of your skin, causing your skin to not be able to hold up as tightly as before over time.
