您知道女性在50至60岁之间的年龄比男性3倍快速老化吗？ 老化出现在皮肤的肌肉，皮肤和皮脂。颈部可以在20年岁后期开始衰老，但通常只有到30或40岁时才会注意到它。当您在35岁生日后的第33天醒来时，照着镜子，您会意识到自己看起来有衰老迹象了！ 是的，根据科学家的说法，35.09岁是您这个年龄的精确转折点。
Which parts of your body age the fastest?
YES, the neck and eye contour areas. Reasons being these areas have the most delicate skin and fewer oil glands. The skin in these areas gets crep-i-er faster than anywhere else on your body because it’s the thinnest. Usually the falling chin or a wavering jawline is the thing that makes you look and feel old. The unglamorous term for wrinkled, sagging skin on the neck, called Turkey Neck occurs when your neck muscles begin weakening and your skin loses its collagen and elastin, and affects its ability to stretch and to stay at the right angle between your jaw and the neck. You lose that defined jawline, which you see very clearly when you take a selfie of yourself. Compare your photos of 10 years and now. Do you see the blurring demarcation of your jawline?
脖子和眼睛的轮廓周围。 原因是这部位的皮肤最细腻，油脂腺更少。这些部分的皮肤变粗糙的速度比身体其他任何地方都还要快，因为它最薄。通常，下巴松弛或下颚弯曲会使您看起来显得老。当您的颈部肌肉开始虚弱并且皮肤失去胶原蛋白和弹性蛋白时，它会影响其伸展能力和保持下颚与颈部之间的正确角度 ，这也会导致颈部松弛和出现皱纹，或被称为“火鸡脖子” 。当您自拍时可以很清楚地看到，您失去了明显的下颚。 比较十年前和现在的照片， 您是否看到下颚的界限模糊呢？
Another syndrome of modern era is the use of mobile phone everywhere you go. 现代的另一个综合症是机不离手
The current lifestyle for most people is they cannot “live” without this device. It is very much a part of our lives. Have you heard of “text neck”? We hold our phone and look down at it all the times, ache or soreness occurs and this constant motion of looking down at your phone can cause your neck to crease. Over time, these creases are conditioned and become permanent wrinkles. Obviously with age, our skin is depleted of facial fat, which creates an “excess” of skin due to also facial muscle degradation.
Another factor to be concerned are sun protection and the need of enough hydration and moisturisation of the neck.
Due to the delicate skin and the fewer oil glands on the neck, few people realise the ramifications of not heeding these factors. The ground gravity pulls down the neck muscles if the skin is loose, and very soon you will notice the “turkey neck” appearance that cause you to look aged prematurely.
As mentioned, the skin on the neck is normally drier than the rest of the body, except for the eye contour, and at times, looking rough and scaly. You must take steps to address this dry skin problem to prevent it from getting worse and uncomfortable. It can also lower your risk of complications, such as open wounds from scratching and skin infections. The extreme dryness can also cause hyperpigmentation condition which is unsightly.
如上所述，除了眼睛轮廓，脖子上的皮肤通常比身体其它部分干燥，有时看起来粗糙和鳞片状。 您必须采取措施解决皮肤干燥的问题，以防止皮肤恶化和不适。 它还可以降低发生并发症的风险，例如刮擦和皮肤感染造成的开放性伤口。 极度干燥还会导致难看的过度沉淀的色素。
Beware of the following risk factors and take charge:
Age: It does matter as older adults are more likely to develop dry skin when the oil glands become less active, and the collagen and elastin tissue production also slows down as we age, raising your risk of dry skin.
Medical History & Genetic: If you have a family history of eczema or dermatitis, then you are more likely to experience this condition. Some people lose skin elasticity faster than others for genetic reasons.
Sun Protection: After years of sun exposure, dark spots and broken capillaries can populate the neck & chest. The crinkly skin below the chin is caused primarily by sun damage leading to collagen and elastin loss. Apply sun protection care of at least SPF 30.
防晒：多年的阳光照射，黑斑和毛细血管破裂会遍布脖子和胸肌。 下巴下方的皱纹皮肤主要是由阳光照射引起的，而导致胶原蛋白和弹性蛋白的流失。 所以必需使用至少SPF 30的防晒霜。
Room Humidity: When the room has higher level of humidity, it helps to stop your skin from drying out. If you are always in dry air conditioned room, ensure that your skin is well moisturised.
Bathing Habits: Do not bath or shower with too hot water. Use tepid water temperature with mild body shampoo that does not strip away your scarce natural skin oil. If you have to take a bath, do not soak yourself for more than 10 minutes. Apply moisturizer immediately after bathing or showering when the body is still damp with some water.
洗澡习惯：不要用太热的水洗澡或淋浴。 使用温和的水温和沐浴露，才不会去除您稀缺的天然皮肤油。 在洗澡时，请勿将自己浸泡超过10分钟。 应在身体沐浴后还有点湿的感觉，立即使用保湿霜。
Use Soft Towel: do not rub skin, but rather pat wet skin dry with a soft towel.
Do not scratch: If you have any dry skin patches, do not scrub or irritate the skin further by scratching. The open wounds may render further complications.
Drink lots of water: Body contains 75% water content, hence it’s important to stay hydrated. Sip water even when you are not thirsty. When you have the urge to drink when you feel thirsty, your body is already calling out the sign of dehydration. With enough hydration, it helps to flush out toxins, ward off skin disorders and helps us to reset our skin hydration function to strengthen the skin immunity.
喝多水：体内水分含量为75％，因此保持水分很重要。 即使您不口渴也要喝点水。 当您有口渴的感觉想要喝水时，就显示了您的身体已经有脱水的迹象。 补充足够的水分，有助于排毒，抵制皮肤疾病，并帮助我们重新设置皮肤的水分功能，以增强皮肤免疫力。
Choose the right skin care for your neck: the products must be able to strengthen your skin barrier protection, to guard against stress pollutants and to improve skin immunity to prevent the skin dryness. Do not use irritating or drying products that can strip the skin of its moisture.
Beauty Sleep: Not forgetting that you need to have good rest and sleep of at least 7-8 hours per night for the body to recuperate and to be ready for the next day challenges. Reduce your screen time when you are waning down for the day.
When you start early to give your neck a Tender Loving Care, you can save yourselves thousands of dollars, pain and anxiety on invasive surgery or medical aesthetic treatments when the turkey neck or text neck becomes a great concern to you.
当您开始尽早给颈部提供温柔的爱心护理时，就可不必担心 “火鸡脖子”或“ 短信脖”的出现，可以省下数千元的同时，并避免进行侵入性手术或医学美容治疗的痛苦和焦虑。
