‘Neck lines’ and ‘Text neck’ are now trending words in the search results. Hashtags related to them are blowing up on social media and this skin condition seems to only gaining more traction as more and more people start experiencing the lines themselves. 

This raises the question – how much of what we find on the internet is true? And how much of it is just a myth?

In this article we will be going into detail on the different talked about ‘internet facts’ about neck lines and bust the truth behind them. 

Necklines _ Truth or Myth? 

  •  Neck lines and saggy skin are caused only because of aging. – Myth
    Though aging contributes to the lower collagen and elastin production in our body – which can result in the formation on necklines and saggy skin, this is no longer the primary cause of neck lines. Our daily activities like looking down on the phone speed up the process while other habits like putting sunscreen on can slow the process down. 
  • Exfoliation can help your neck lines and wrinkles – Truth 
    Exfoliation facilitates the dead skin cells on the top of the skin to be washed away. This makes room for cell regeneration – so the skin underneath comes to the top. This new layer or skin will have better texture, less wrinkles and this also helps our serums and creams to penetrate deeper into the skin.
  • Exercise can make your skin sag – Truth 
    It might come as a surprise to many people, but yes – if neck exercises are not carried out properly, they might result in more stretching of the skin, causing lines and wrinkles. Not exercising properly can also result in the neck becoming stiff and heath problems. To know more on how to exercise for neck skin click to watch a video on

  • Sunscreen is the only thing that can prevent necklines – Myth
    There is no debating that sunscreen is absolutely necessary for our skin to block the broad spectrum UV rays from the sun – which speed up the aging process, but applying sunscreen is still a preventive step. Applying sunscreen can only prevent the sun damage – our skin still needs a lot of care to maintain the youthful appearance and reverse any signs of aging as they appear. 
  • Smoking causes neck lines – Truth 
    Smoking causes our skin to close the ability to produce collagen required to keep our skin firm and wrinkle free. Excessive smoking can cause the skin to age faster and look more dehydrated – causing sagging and thinner skin – resulting in necklines.  

It might seem that everything you do is causing neck lines. Worry Not! 
We are here to help with some Do’s and Don’ts to make your life simple. 


  • Stop worrying about your necklines and wrinkles – that is not going to make them go away. 
  • Looking down on the phone or having a bad neck posture 
  • Wearing heavy jewelry for a longer duration can cause strain to your neck. 
  • We spend 1/3rd of our life sleeping. So try not to fall asleep in weird positions.

  1. Hey Nifty! I really enjoyed reading your blog. I think that your topic is unique and interesting to read about. I found out recently that there are habits that we can practice for protecting the skin on our necks. To be honest, I haven’t implemented them myself, but reading your post on the dos and don’ts has got me thinking that I should. Before reading your blog, I didn’t know that exfoliation can also be helpful in reducing wrinkles and promoting cell regeneration. I think that is a good technique to try, especially for a beginner like me.
