How Do You Tighten the Skin on Your Neck?

Methods for tightening neck skin include plastic surgery and neck exercises, says Consumer Health Digest. Other natural methods for tightening neck skin are staying hydrated, using moisturizers and sunscreen, not smoking and eating healthy.

One example of an exercise for the neck is chin lifts. During this exercise, the lower lips needs to be placed over the upper lip the entire time, says Consumer Health Digest. The chin lift is then performed by raising the chin and inhaling as the head is tilted up toward the ceiling, and then exhaling as the chin is lowered back down, and repeating as desired. Other exercises for the neck include side shin lifts, chin thrusts and kissing the sky.

Staying hydrated maintains the elasticity of the skin, states Consumer Health Digest. In order to stay fully hydrated, it is recommended to consume at least eight glasses of water every day. Moisturizing every day also helps keep the skin healthy, preferably with products that contain vitamin E and almond oil. Applying sunscreen to the face and neck on a daily basis helps protect the skin from ultraviolet rays that may cause premature aging.

Smoking cigarettes is one of the most common causes of sagging skin, because it breaks down collagen, explains Consumer Health Digest. A healthy diet includes essential fatty acids that help the skin cells stay properly moisturized. Examples of foods that contain healthy fatty acids include walnuts, edamame and flaxseed oil, according to Women's Health Magazine.
