2. Apply ice

This remedy can be used up to three times a week. It consists of applying ice to your skin.

Just put three ice cubes in a cloth and rub it over your neck for 10 minutes.

  • With something as simple as ice, you’ll be getting your blood flowing, reducing any inflammation, and giving your skin a firmer, healthier look. You’ll have a youthful neck for years to come.

3. Do daily massages

Doing self-massages daily can also help. Just like how you exercise the rest of your body, you’ll have to do the same for your neck.

  • Always go up: this will help improve your circulation.

4. Apply honey

Honey is one of the most moisturizing foods out there.

  • Just let it sit 20 minutes and then rinse off with cold water.

This way you’ll be taking advantage of its moisturizing ability and fighting flabbiness that comes along as part of the aging process.
