5 Tips to Have a Slender Neck
The neck is a very attractive part of a woman’s body and although we often forget it, by providing proper care, you can have a more attractive and slender neck for a long time. That way you can show it without feeling any bit of shyness.
In this article, we will explain what are the essential tips to have a young and elegant neck, followed by some simple and natural beauty tips that can be done on a daily basis.
The neck should receive care, just like the entire body, with regular exfoliation and daily moisturizing. However, it also requires more specific care, such as those same treats that are required for the face.
Exfoliate your neck every week
The first step to keeping the skin on the neck smooth and firm is to exfoliate it on a regular basis. We suggest that you perform a skin peeling treatment only once a week because doing so more often could irritate the skin, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin.
In order to remove dead skin cells you can use any of the following natural products, or any combination:
- Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
- Sea salt
Mix these exfoliating ingredients with a little almond oil or aloe vera gel to massage your neck more easily. Do it gently, without pressing hard, with circular motions from the chest to the chin. Then rinse with cold water to close the pores and moisturize the area.

Do a Deep Cleaning
How can deep clean the skin on the neck? Using a clay mask, in case you have mixed or oily skin. You can put the mask on both the face and neck.
We recommend using green or pink clay, and to prepare the poultice by simply mixing the clay powder with water to make a paste, which you can spread on and it won’t drip off. To mix the clay, use clay pots, glass or wood bowls, but never use metal because it would eliminate the therapeutic properties of the clay.
Apply the mask by avoiding the eyes and lips, and let it dry for about 15 minutes. Remove the clay with warm water and then moisturize the skin.
Hydrate It Daily
How do you moisturize your neck? With the same lotion you use on your face. The neck is as sensitive as the skin of the face and also wears down over time by losing its strength and wrinkling if you don’t provide it with proper care.
We recommend using the following highly nutritious products:
- Almond oil
- Rosehip oil
- Shea butter
- Jojoba oil
- Coconut oil
- Grape seed oil
- Evening primrose oil
- Olive oil
- Wheat germ oil
Any of these natural moisturizers will be very beneficial to deeply hydrate your neck. You should only use it twice a day when you wake up and go to bed.

Massage It Regularly
Unfortunately, the neck suffers tension from daily stresses because of poor posture, hours in front of the computer, constant frowning, etc. To avoid the consequences of these tensions, we recommend using a moisturizer by gently massaging the neck for at least 5 or 10 minutes a day.
Massage the neck by using the entire palm of your hand, pressing well on the area under the chin, where the jawline can be seen, to stimulate circulation and to eliminate toxins. Separate the thumb and forefinger well and slide the hand from top to bottom, pressing down slightly on the skin.
Relax Each Night
Bruxism or jaw tension also greatly influence neck stress by worsening its appearance over time. A way to solve this problem is by performing jaw exercises that help you relax all the tension that builds up in this area. The exercises we suggest may also be useful to reduce and eliminate sagging jowls.
Also, remember that at night it’s common to clench down on your jaw unconsciously. Therefore, it’s very important to take a few minutes to relax this part of the body well before bedtime. You should try to sleep with your jaw completely relaxed and your mouth slightly open, just like babies do when they sleep.
