Your neck is one of the first areas to show any signs of aging. One major reason is neglect – the neck does not often receive as much care as one’s face does. This eventually leads to loose neck skin. But worry not. We are here to tell you how you may potentially reverse this effect and tighten your neck skin. Keep reading.

Why Does My Neck Look Older?

The neck is the first place that shows the various signs of aging. The area has the thinnest skin than any other part of the body. The neck also has fewer oil glands, which may make it lose its elasticity relatively faster. It also is possible that most of us do not give our necks the care we give to our faces.

While these are the reasons your neck skin looks loose, there are certain ways you can tighten it.

Is It Possible To Tighten The Neck Skin?

A few exercises and natural remedies may help tighten your neck skin. We have compiled them below.

Natural Ways To Tighten Your Neck Skin

1. Hot Stone Massage

Anecdotal evidence suggests that a massage with a hot stone on loose neck skin may repair wrinkles. It also may trigger collagen formation and tighten neck skin. However, get this massage done by a professional for better, safer results.

2. Almond Oil Massage

An almond oil massage may also improve skin firmness. Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E and may also help reduce wrinkles (1). Apply almond oil to your neck regularly. Additionally, you may also eat almonds daily.

3. Exercise

One effective exercise to tighten neck skin is the constant stretching and relaxing of lower facial muscles. This stretching exercise can make the muscles around the neck active, potentially stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.

4. Neck Masks

Tips To Keep Your Neck Looking Younger

1. Take Collagen

Oral collagen is known for improving skin elasticity (3).Adding collagen supplements to your daily diet may help keep your neck looking younger. Consult your doctor before you go for any supplements.

2. Avoid Perfumes

Perfumes contain alcohol that may dry the skin if used in excess. This may eventually lead to a loss of skin elasticity. Hence, avoid using perfumes on your neck. You may use them on your wrist.

3. Take Vitamin C

Vitamin C has been popular in the skincare industry for its anti-aging benefits (4). You may use a vitamin C-based serum or cream to keep your neck looking younger.

4. Exfoliate Your Skin

Our face and neck are covered with millions of dead cells that may clog the pores if not cleared. This may make our skin appear dull and aged. Hence, using a good physical or chemical exfoliant to exfoliate your neck can help.

5. Moisturize Your Skin

Regularly moisturizing your neck also helps keep it looking young. Go for a natural, high-quality moisturizer from a reputed brand. Use it regularly.

6. Manage Your Weight

Weight gain can cause the skin to stretch. The subsequent weight loss may make it loose and saggy. Manage your weight by eating right and exercising regularly. Stay hydrated and follow a balanced diet. Incorporate fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and salads into your daily diet.

Wrinkles on your neck could be discouraging. But with the right methods, you may correct them to an extent and look more youthful. Try the remedies and tips mentioned in this post and see the results for yourself.
