How can we stop save our neck(and age)? Don't hide your neck behind ugly turkey neck, but flaunt it with these tips!
Equal treatment as your face
Moisturise your neck twice daily just like how you will do it for your face. Even though what you use on your face is perfectly fine, it is always more advisable to invest in a neck-specific formula.

Exercise your neck
One of the main culprits of accelerating neck ageing is our addiction to smartphone! Our heads weigh between 4.5kg and 5.4kg, as we angle them down to look at our phones, the effective weight on our necks increases – at a 15-degree angle it is about 12kg rising to 27kg at 60 degrees.
