How To Get Rid of Necklace Lines 

Neckless Lines

It’s easy to forget that skin care isn’t all about having a beautiful face. We may spend years perfecting our morning and nightly rituals. But if our skin care only treats the face, we are negligent to our necks.

And we pay the price. With horizontal lines that plague the smoothness of our necks. Making us look older than our years.

You may have heard a million different names for these hard-to-hide wrinkles on the neck. From the ‘Rings of Venus’, ‘Tech Neck’ or ‘Necklace Lines’.

But no matter what we call them, they just won’t go away.

It’s time to ditch the turtlenecks and find out how to get rid of those pesky necklace lines.

What Causes Necklace Lines?

Necklace lines are primarily the result of the natural aging process. Just like how other wrinkles form, like pesky crow’s feet or dreaded 11’s, our neck skin is no different.

Necklace lines can be inherited or genetic. Some people have them even in childhood. But it’s not the only factor that comes into play.

Like other wrinkles, there can be several contributing factors. Ones other than genetics or age.

Reasons For Necklace Lines

Repetitive Motions

The nickname ‘tech neck’ is for a valid reason. The amount of time we spend slumped over our laptops and phones can be an arch nemesis for necklace lines.

Having our neck bent out of shape makes the skin out of shape. And with all this modern era technology, it’s no wonder we are hearing all about ‘tech neck’.

As the world becomes more technological, we become more sedentary. In general, this means posture is getting worse. And unfortunately for us, our necks are getting wrinkly sooner because of it.


Who knew that beauty sleep could in fact, not be so pretty after all? While sleep is a miracle worker for us, the way we sleep can turn necklace lines from sleeping beauty… to sleeping ugly.

Too many pillows can increase the severity of neck lines. And if you’re a side or stomach sleeper, there’s bad news. This can increase pressure around your face and neck. In turn, making those neck lines even more pronounced. 

Sun Exposure

We know that too much sun is not good for us and can age us prematurely

It’s not uncommon for people to slap on the SPF to their face, but forget other exposed areas such as the neck and hands. You may diligently apply SPF on the face. But if your neck is unprotected, you may be enhancing the appearance of necklace lines.

Lifestyle Factors

In this day and age, it’s hard to not know how bad smoking and drinking alcohol are bad for your skin. And they certainly can contribute to the severity of necklace lines.

Sometimes people notice them more when they gain weight due to extra fat storage in this area. But weight loss can also aggravate the condition as the neck skin loses laxity.

Thankfully, there are many things that can be done to get rid of necklace lines.
