What are those annoying rings around my neck and how do I get rid of them?

To get the lowdown on why we're getting these neck lines and what we can do about it, we spoke to a dermatologist and asked for her advice.
"The main causes of horizontal neck wrinkles are loss of our skin’s important dermal plumping fibres such as collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans," said dermatologist Dr Katherine Armour from Bespoke Skin Technology.

Damn. What's causing us to lose our beloved plumping fibres, then? Just ageing in general?

"This is caused by both intrinsic ageing, in which we gradually lose these plumping fibres over time, and extrinsic ageing where collagen is damaged by exposure to environmental stressors such as UV light and pollution. Ultraviolet light is the main culprit," said Dr Armour.
