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.

Dr. Nadir Qazi, DO, a board-certified physician, says, “Collagen production begins to slow around the age of 25. However, the effects may not become apparent until the age of 40 or so. Most people start to notice changes to their neck around that age as the skin begins to thin and the collagen to support the skin has depleted significantly enough to become visible.”

Dr. Kunal Malik, MD, FAAD, a cosmetic dermatologist, explains, “This is highly variable, and dependent upon multiple factors – overall health status, sun exposure, genetics, environmental factors (smoking, excess pollution exposure).”

Dr. Anna Chacon, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist, adds, “After the age of 40, the skin and muscles of the neck become slack. With weight reduction, the skin’s ability to shrink decreases, and weakening muscles can cause a banded look. Popular face skin care products, treatments, and procedures can assist us in combating the affects of aging.”

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?

Dr. Chacon says, “Yes. Stretching and exercising can make a visible difference in wrinkly skin. Constant stretching and releasing of your lower facial tissues and muscles might activate them. This can also induce collagen production, decreasing aging and sagging signs.”

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. Dr. Chacon adds, “Simply take a pack of chewing gum and munch it for 10 minutes twice a day. This will help you build muscle beneath your jaw and in your neck, preventing a double chin and turkey neck. Try these for extra neck-tightening exercises.”

4. Neck Masks

  • Cucumber Mask

Cucumbers are a great source of hydration as they contain 95% water (2). Some believe using cucumber on your neck may help revitalize the shrunk neck cells and make the skin look fuller and plump. More research is warranted in this regard.

  • A cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons of curd
  • 4 to 5 drops of almond oil

  1. Grate the cucumber and place it in a bowl.
