Is the saggy skin on your neck betraying your actual age? Do you feel like there’s nothing you can do to fix this age-related problem? Think again. In this article, we are going to share a number of tips and tricks you can use to smooth, tighten, and firm the skin on your neck and help you go from flabby to fabulous in no time.
Any activity that tips your chin down towards your chest will, over time, loosen the muscles in your neck and result in saggy neck skin. You might be surprised how often this is likely to happen throughout the day while sleeping, working at a desk, and looking at a laptop or mobile device . To counteract the droopy skin these repeated and prolonged movements can produce, work on improving your posture. Here are some simple ways to do just that.
Posture fixes like these can go a long way towards smoothing out your skin and preventing a saggy neck.
Your neck skin is thin and delicate, which is why it shows signs of aging so easily. This means that you should avoid harsh treatments. Instead, make a gentle exfoliant with natural items, most of which you probably already have in your kitchen. Gather the following items and get mixing.
The gentle abrasiveness of the ground oatmeal removes dead skin cells to reveal the younger, healthier, tighter skin underneath. This recipe is a quick and inexpensive way to exfoliate your skin without turning to harsh chemicals or painful medical procedures.
Green tea can work wonders for saggy neck skin, not to mention being a tasty treat. You can add a dash of honey or a squeeze of lemon for a refreshing beverage any time of the day. Green tea is even delicious served cold on a hot summer day.
While you’re enjoying the thirst-quenching benefits of a cup of green tea, you can also feel good that you’re providing your body with the nutrients it needs to naturally tighten loose skin. Green tea is high in antioxidants that work to purify your blood and remove toxins that can accumulate in your skin. Green tea also improves the production of collagen that gives your skin the support it needs to stay firm and toned. Sipping on one cup of green tea a day—perhaps in lieu of your afternoon coffee—is an easy way to contribute to the health of your body and heal saggy neck skin.
Stretching your face and neck muscles (also known as facial yoga) can help make saggy skin more taut. Best of all, you don’t have to dedicate a full hour and memorize an elaborate routine for your skin to benefit. Just one simple exercise and five minutes of your time is all it takes to create a younger-looking, tighter neck.
Repeat this routine every day for three weeks and you’ll soon start to notice how much tighter the skin on your neck can be.
Aloe vera has been used for ages as a natural moisturizer to keep skin soft and supple. But did you know that it also works to tighten skin as well? The malic acid in aloe vera nourishes your cells making them more elastic. The elasticity of the underlying cells means that your skin as a whole will also be more elastic. So, just like a rubber band, your skin will pull back into its normal position after being stretched.
To experience the skin-tightening benefits that aloe vera has to offer, simply smear two tablespoons of the gel on the skin of your neck and let it sit for twenty minutes. When the twenty minutes is up, wash off the aloe vera with warm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel. This simple remedy is safe enough that you can do it twice a week for accelerated healing.
Both cucumber and avocado are great for your skin because they contain anti-aging elements, pore-tightening compounds, skin-nourishing vitamins, moisturizing minerals, and even natural exfoliators. Put them together and you’ve got a powerful recipe for fixing saggy neck skin. Let’s get mixing!
Try wearing this mask twice a week to fix saggy skin on your neck in no time.
Covering saggy skin on your neck with clothing or jewelry may not be a long-term solution like the other techniques on this list, but it can provide a “quick fix” while you work to tighten the skin on your neck.
Consider wearing a turtleneck sweater or shirt as the need arises. You can also accessorize and cover saggy neck skin at the same time with a thin floral-print scarf. For more formal occasions, try wearing an elaborate choker or other elaborate jewelry to distract from your loose skin. At the very least, the jewelry will encourage you to keep your head held high.
