3 Powerful Facial Exercises to Tighten Sagging Neck Skin
Sagging neck skin is a cosmetic issue that all women face, but there are non-surgical methods to tighten sagging neck skin. To reduce wrinkles, improve muscle tone, and smooth scars and fine lines, we've rounded up 3 facial exercises from the Face Yoga vault. We call these the '3 x Bird Strategy' for improving sagging neck muscles. Here are our top 3 facial exercises to tighten sagging neck skin – let’s take flight.
The Baby Bird
Press the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth, tilt your head towards the ceiling to create resistance in your neck, smile, and swallow while holding this facial pose. Repeat this facial exercise 10 to 15 times.
Why this neck skin tightening exercise works: This Face Yoga pose helps to tighten your jaw and create a natural neck lift without Botox or going under the knife. The repetitive movement works out your chewing muscle and the platysma (the muscle surrounding your upper chest, collarbone, and neck) and smooths wrinkles by pulling your skin taut over newly toned neck muscles.
Turn your head 45 degrees to the upper right, pucker your lips like you’re about to blow a kiss, hold this position (you should feel resistance in the front left of your neck) for 5 seconds, repeat while looking to the upper left. Repeat this facial exercise a minimum of 5 times on each side.
Why this neck skin tightening exercise works: Channeling your inner swan helps to tone neck skin that doesn’t get a natural workout in your everyday movements. This complex movement helps smooth wrinkles on either side of your jaw, helps with double chins, and reduces the dreaded “turkey neck” too.
The (Anti) Turkey
Tilt your head towards the ceiling while placing your hand on your right collarbone, apply gentle pressure downwards while looking up (you should feel resistance), pull your lips around your teeth then start opening and closing your mouth. Repeat this movement 5 times then switch hands and repeat this pose on your left collarbone. Repeat this facial exercise a minimum of 5 times on each side.
Why this neck skin tightening exercise works: Your neck and jaw are closely related, so exercising your jaw can help benefit your neck skin. Repetitive movements to help tighten the jaw improve skin elasticity and leave you without frustrating excess skin under your chin and neck.
