3 Tips For Getting Rid of a Saggy Neck (That Actually Work)
Sure, turtlenecks are back in style, but every once in a while, your neckline just wants to drop it down low. (Especially if you're Kendall Jenner.) There's nothing wrong with baring some décolletage, but if you feel self-conscious about your neck, you might feel a little shy about buying that deep-V.
Loose skin in the neck area can be caused by a variety of factors. "Saggy necks are caused by age, sun damage, and smoking," Dr. Douglas Senderoff of NYC's Park Ave Aesthetic Surgery told POPSUGAR.

Luckily, there are a few ways to firm things up — and you don't have to turn to surgery. Keep reading to learn how to keep your neck in check.
