A natural physical outcome of aging is the aging of skin, which leads to wrinkles and fine lines. The neck area is where skin aging first manifests itself, and yet, we tend to often ignore the neck area the most. Turkey Neck is the term used to describe this wrinkling and sagging of neck skin. It develops when the muscles of the neck weaken due to age, making the skin around the neck lose its elasticity. Because it’s thinner than the skin on your face and has fewer oil glands, neck skin is also susceptible to dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.
While aging is inevitable and cannot be reversed, it is possible to delay the onset of a Turkey Neck or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin sagging, with a few neck exercises that are so simple, you can do them at home every day. Read on to know more!
A word of caution: discontinue the exercises immediately, if you experience neck pain. If you suffer from chronic neck pain and issues, consult your physician before doing these exercises.
The Neck Lift
An effective exercise to tone your neck muscles, the neck lift needs you to lie on your back with your hands by your side on your bed, with your head hanging out. Slowly lift your head up as high as you can, with the help of your neck muscles. Repeat this exercise 5 times.
The Forehead Push
The best part about this exercise is that you can do it either while sitting or standing. Begin, by resting the palms of your hands on your forehead and push your head against your hand. Ensure that you don’t move either your hands or your head - all you need to do is apply adequate pressure on your forehead. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Then repeat, by placing your hands behind your neck and pressing your head back.
The Swan Neck
This one’s a classic neck exercise that most of us are familiar with. First, slowly turn your head and neck to the left side, while gently tilting back. You should feel the muscles below your ear working. Hold the position for 6 to 8 seconds, before returning your head to the centre. Repeat the head and neck turn on your right side and hold for 6 to 8 seconds again.
While exercises are a great way to tone your neck muscles and enhance your wellbeing, it’s also advisable to use a good neck cream that can help smoothen, tighten and sculpt the skin along your neck. Mitchell USA’s AGE-LESS Neck Therapy Cream does just that!
