Tips for Having Younger Looking Neck Skin


DON’T WAIT for the signs of aging on your neck to get worse!

Do a simple non-surgical treatment just as we’ve prepared for you below. You don’t want to be one of those patients who ran out of skin tightening options only to opt for a MORE expensive surgery!

1. Make Time for a Neck Exercise

Want to get your younger-looking neck back and reduce fat at the same time? Then what you’ll want to do is to massage and stretch your neck UP.

Here are the basic steps you’ll need to do ONCE A DAY:

  • Moisturize your skin first with your regular face cream or nourishing oils for effective results.
  • Stretch your neck up and hold the position.
  • Slowly turn your neck from left to right and vice-versa while looking up.
  • Now look straight and gently pinch your neck lines repeatedly.
  • Rub your chest area up to the neck in a circular motion using your fingers ONLY.
  • As for the last step, rub the wrinkling skin once again but in an up-and-down motion.

EACH of these steps takes 30 seconds. All in all, you should be finished with your routine within just 2 minutes and 30 seconds!

2. Avoid Doing Double Chin!

If you could, try to avoid looking down ALL THE TIME. You can get your skin EXPOSED to the double chin effect when you look down the whole time (especially while using a cell phone).

As a solution, you’ll have to…

  • Position your phone near eye level
  • DON’T slouch and practice looking straight

This may sound a little bit difficult to do because we’re so used to looking down at our phones. But at the end of the day, this will GREATLY reduce fine lines that make your neck look YOUNGER than ever.

This will be a GREAT time to practice proper posture as well! That’s another plus on your confidence level!

Just think about the result! (It also improves overall blood flow.)

3. Sleep in the Right Position

You should also have a PROPER sleeping position at night if you want better-smoothing skin on your neck.  Use a SMALLER pillow to keep your face and neck aligned.

And if there’s anyone out there who can sleep without a pillow, that will help your neck but it can also strain your neck too. Get the right pillow for a balanced position.

4. Apply a Sunscreen

As you just learned earlier, prolonged sun exposure can be HARSH to smooth and youthful skin. It can even affect your oil glands.

You might want to protect your elastic neck against your greatest, hottest enemy. So don’t forget to wear sunscreen EVERY TIME you take a long stroll outside.

5. Take a Collagen Supplement

Collagen is a component of connective tissue. This tissue supports your bones, muscles, and skin. And it’s full of protein — which makes collagen even more ESSENTIAL for a turkey neck. How?

Eat food that boosts collagen production!

Collagen maintains the elasticity of necks, promoting ANTI-AGING skin overall (and a healthy body). So it’s a great way to tighten neck skin and improve your health.

MAKE SURE to boost collagen production and fatty acids in your body if you want to improve your sagging skin. You can boost it HOWEVER you want!

#1 Foods

If you’re more of a foodie person, then start prepping these foods for your lunch later!

  • Citrus fruits
  • Bone broth
  • Egg whites
  • And gelatin (which is basically cooked collagen by the way)

Just a little warning since we’re here anyway. It would do you good if you can AVOID these harmful activities that damage your collagen (and even your health):

  • Consuming TOO MUCH sugar on a daily basis
  • Smoking

#2 Capsules

Another way to tighten the skin on the neck is to take capsules. That’s if you don’t want to give up your favorite meals.

Some suggest taking hydrolyzed pills. Although it’s refutable since amino acids found in capsules are digested in the stomach rather than absorbed.

#3 Skincare Products

You can EVEN make your neck look younger with collagen moisturizers and neck creams while getting your skin moisturized at the same time!

For those aged 60 and above, try anti-aging moisturizers.

6. And Don't Forget Your Vitamins!

#1 Vitamin C

If you’re experiencing skin creasing, take Vitamin C as it gives anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This will make your neck look younger enough.

#2 Retinol

Retinol (also known as Vitamin A) SPEEDS UP cell turnover. If you’re unfamiliar with this, it’s basically a process where your skin peels off dead skin cells and new cells come as a replacement.

Ever thought how young people usually have a smooth skin texture?

It’s because their cell gets replaced TWICE as fast compared with adults. And that explains the clear signs of aging on the appearance of a grown-up person. 

So you might want to use a retinol-infused serum that can tighten the skin on the neck once you hit 30. Try an anti-aging cream or a night cream for your 30s if you prefer.

Apply them properly with gentle upward strokes from the chest up to the chin area. 

Just additional info: Do you know they both PROMOTE collagen production? So you’ll technically get 2-in-1 benefits with these two nutrients!

7. Hide Dark Spots with Makeup

Do you want to get your youthful appearance back as FAST as possible before you go out?

You can instead hide the lines from your neck with makeup. We suggest using foundations formulated for mature skin and women over 60.

But remember it’s just a TEMPORARY treatment! You can NEVER rely on makeup as a final cure because it won’t erase those brown spots you have on your neck AT ALL.

To make your neck look younger, get the skin tone to MATCH with the normal shade of your skin.

8. Don't Be Afraid to Approach a Dermatologist

There are some patients who’ve always had lines on the neck even at a young age.

In those cases, this usually has to do with genetics. But if you don’t think anyone from your family had this condition at all, then it might be something more serious.

Approach a dermatologist while it’s still EARLY so you won’t have to undergo any surgery.

What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

What Causes Them

Your neck goes through the same wear and tear as your face. And it has thinner skin which makes it EVEN MORE sensitive than anything.

So you might want to know the reasons behind an aging neck first before jumping for a treatment.

1. Sun Damage

There are a MILLION factors that contribute to sagging skin. But it’s mostly the sun that’s at fault for causing fine lines and wrinkles on your youthful neck.

Why? Because you expose your skin on the neck to UV rays every single day you go out. Unless you’re FULLY covered. But why would you do that under heat, right?

Basically, your neck LOSES elasticity once they experience sun damage.

2. Always Looking at Every Direction

It comes down to how MUCH you extend your neck. Always looking down or side by side (in an extensive way) causes WRINKLES.

Ever notice those lines on your friend’s neck when she looks at a handsome guy passing by? THAT is exactly what’s happening on a neck when it gets FULLY stretched.

So if your friend starts having wrinkles, it’s a SIGN she has had her man-gazing enough. This means it’s TIME for treatments!
