How often do you apply a neck firming cream? Throughout this website, I've discussed solutions for sagging neck issues.
But there are a few small tips you can do daily to further help improve or prevent the look of an aging neck.
I don't just apply a neck cream twice a day (morning and night), I also incorporate a neck massage along with the moisturizing ritual.
I've been doing my face/neck exercises regularly, however, it wasn't until I added this important step, did I begin to notice firmer skin on my neck skin and under the chin.
Every morning and night after washing my face I apply a moisturizer or neck firming cream. Before the neck cream soaks in - I perform this quick Neck Brush massage.
This massaging/firming routine feels wonderful and I feel it even helps my moisturizer penetrate better. Try this neck brush massage and see if your neck doesn't look and feel better!
Recently I realized that despite my efforts to smooth my neck and maintain it's youthful skin, cranking my head down while typing or texting made my wrinkles seem more pronounced. And the worst thing for my neck (and crow's feet) was my pillow.
I realized that sleeping on my side kept the side of my face smashed into the pillow. So I decided to try to sleep on my back, but this caused my head to slump forward, which created neck wrinkles! What to do?
I found this WONDERFUL pillow that helped prevent wrinkles on my neck and face whether I slept on my side or on my back.
The pillow helps to elevate and suspend my face over the pillows/mattress and removes pressure on my face and neck.
When you sleep on your back, you just fold the pillow in half, and it cradles your neck to keep the skin smooth and holds the sides of your head comfortably.

A few years ago, I accidentally took a picture of my neck and chin at a strange angle that was focusing on the neck and up under the chin area. Not a view that’s easily visible when looking straight into a mirror.
I was shocked to see how much sagging there was under the chin and how deep my neck wrinkles were. I thought "how am I ever going to fix this turkey neck wattle?"
I really wanted to know if face exercises and a neck massages worked to alleviate some of the sagging and wrinkles, otherwise I wasn't going to waste my time.
I mean, if your neck looked like that, wouldn't you want to find a neck firming procedure that worked? So I took a before picture, found an exercise program I liked doing to did them every other day for several weeks, taking pictures along the way to document my progress.
NOTE: To make sure the comparison was as even as possible, I took the pictures in the same spot, around the same time of day (so the lighting was as close as possible), with the same camera. I also tried to get the same angle and distance. These pictures have not been altered.
However, I was lazy and didn't do the recommended neck massage that Carolyn (owner of CFF program) so strongly recommended.
And while I was seeing some results in the neck area, it was not what I had hoped for, considering I was doing the workout 3 - 4 times a week.
