Unlike other body areas, the neck unfortunately is more vulnerable to gravity and aging. Thatâ€™s because neck skin is especially thin, thereâ€™s less collagen to provide support, and there are fewer sebaceous glands to deliver natural suppleness. Overtime, even in thin adults, neck skin may become crepe-like and loose.
