Are they just lines or loose "turkey" like skin?
If "turkey" maybe lowering bodyfat through diet/exercise if she is overweight
or facial exercises or both.

your neck is one age give-away because not many women pay attention to that part of the anatomy until they notice the "gobble-neck". Basically attention to the neck is the same as the face -- use sunscreen, apply a Vit C
serum and a product with Retin-A. The one think different from the face is that the skin on the neck is very fragile in comparison therefore some women cannot use Vit C or Retin-A every night --maybe alternate nights or every other night. Whatever you sister uses on her face have her use it on her neck. If the skin is very loose and with lots of lines -- medical treatment may be necessary.

is it loose skin pumi or just ring round the neck cause many women if you look at them have rings round the neck, this is quite normal but if it is loosening i would excersise use firming cream take collagen and as mari said retin a! Skin docotors do a retin a product they say to use small bit once week and build up gradually, they also have a skin smoothing treatment which i use and is very good!

That's good advise. I've noticed recently my neck is more red than I would like it to be. I'm backing off some on the retin-a and c serum on my neck.

Well, I notice the same thing if I let my head hang forward. But if I hold my head up and back, like Mari's suggestion of thinking "Bad Breath" and backing your head up, they disappear like magic!

She could try the "Kiss the Sky" exercise too, but it takes a long time for the neck to respond, so tell her to hang in there and do it faithfully every day!

There's always surgery, but it comes right back if you don't do the exercises every day and wear sunscreen and hold that head up!!!

Just a question - do you Retin-A users also apply it to your neck? Just curious - why? I use it too but just on already formed lines and wrinkles on my face. Thanks.

I do, but sometimes I "buffer" it first with rosehip seed oil if I am getting too irritated by it.
Do you think the neck and decolletee are more senstive to it?

So then is everyone saying not to put retin on your neck, cause im getting bit confused here?! However mirecka has good point may be its just better to put it on places where line, wrinkel are forming to! The neck does not really get wrinkles does it is it not more like sagging?

So the question is - is Retin-A used to prevent lines and wrinkles or to get rid of them once formed?

I have been using it sparingly on already formed lines and wrinkles, and not as a preventative measure vs. new ones. What is your take on this? I am hundreds of miles away from home and my doctor and would appreciate your advice on this.

I agree with NY - I have some lines on my neck which I believe are due to sagging. When I return the skin to "normal position" the lines go away. So this says to me that neck exercises are the way to go here.

Thanks for replying everyone. The lines on her neck are like rings and there are about 3 or 4 of them. And yes she is a bit overweight. Do you think if she loses weight, the lines on her neck will go ?

Mari: Truly said about the neck being one age-give away. My sis is a beautiful girl at 30 and she always had nice skin but the "rings" on her neck are getting worse. At the moment, she is not using any cream on her neck. Many people tend to moisturise face only and not the neck I suppose like myself
I will ask her to apply the vitamin c serum as suggested and can she apply her facial cream on her neck too?


NY: No, the skin of her neck is not loose. The lines are just rings around her neck but they look bad and I've noticed these lines just below her neck too near her chest area- the same ring-like line. Do you think it's normal?
The skin smoothing cream you use, NY is it for neck too? I will have a look at Boots today. Thanks.

Fawnie: Thanks for recommending these neck exercises. I would prefer the exercises over surgery. Can u suggest a good retin-A for my sister to use?

Thanks for all your helpful advice, everyone. I really appreciate

Just a word of warning to you gals who are aiming to loose weight - go for it! and start immediately! it's the best thing that you can do for yourselves both short-term and long-term!

But be prepared for the sagging skin phenomenon. The skin has been stretched out and once the fat goes, it will just hang. And it seems that the older you are, the longer it will take to get back to normalcy, or something close to it.

This happened to me - I lost 60 pounds last year. It was the weight that I gained after I moved to Toronto and starting "sitting" for a living. Anyway, I lost the weight via diet and exercise, and look and feel wonderful, but am still working to retrain those neck muscles.
My exercise program took care of the rest of me, but I ignored the neck until I learned about exercises that target the neck area.

The "kiss the sky" exercise that Fawnie recommends repeatedly on this site is the one to do. It's helped me alot, and all my friends are now doing it too just as a preventative measure if nothing else. Do a search on the site to find it (I'm still having a touch time doing linkages within this site - sorry
).

My grandmother (made her own creams -- I called them potions) -- told me when I was hardly out of grade school to look after the skin on my neck. So I got into the habit of always rubbing some sort of cream (even hand cream) on my neck. I've read that whatever moisturizer you put on your face should also go on your neck. Strivectin has now come out with a neck fixer upper. I think most lines of cosmetics have too -- since all of a sudden women are noticing their necks have become crinkly.

Pumi iv had rings now for long time and used to be overweight myself but then when it all dropped off me they had softened slightly but i suppose as i keep on saying skin is never gonna be perfect she should just do the excersises and use anti aging creams, it will all help in time these things dont happen over night though! However if you look around quite a few women have rings just from neck movement etc!

Pumi all the creams you use for anti aging should be for neck chest and hands and face! This is a strong cream and expensive nearly 50 pounds i would get sample off ebay first pls dont waiste the pounds away as what works for one of us may not work for another! You should get some vit c serum and vitamins and minerals as well for her Olay do good pack of them for anti aging! spk later!
