If you have a wrinkly turkey neck most probably your skin will be loose and in need of some effective firming exercises.
I have compiled 10 exercises that will help tone the muscles of the neck, while preventing or diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
They will also help you to alleviate any tensions accumulated during the day around this area.
Do neck exercises really work? The exercises will only be of any help if you are constant and practice them every day. It is important to have a routine and stick with it.
Don't forget to give your neck the care and attention that this delicate part of the body needs. Tighten and strengthen your neck muscles with the following exercises:
1 - Form an “O” with your mouth and pull down the sides of your mouth until you feel the muscles underneath your neck working. Do it in short, fast movements. Repeat twenty times, three times in a row. Ideal for strengthening the neck, for a double chin and to diminish wrinkles.
2 - Place your right hand over the neck and pull down the skin with the hand. Now, tilt your head backwards until you feel that the neck is tight and then return to the original position. Repeat twenty times, three times in a row.
3 - Place your right hand over the neck. Pull down the skin and move your head slowly to the right, and then to the left. Repeat twenty times, three times in a row.
4 - Lie on your back. Raise your head and neck and in this position move your head right and left. Repeat twenty times, three times in a row.
5 - Open your mouth to form an "O". In this position pronounce the vowels from ”A” to “U” without closing your mouth at any moment. Repeat ten times, three times in a row. This exercise is also beneficial for a double chin.
6 - This simple neck exercise is effective for both neck and chin. Press the tip of the tongue against the palate for a few seconds and release. Perform several times during the day.
7 - With your mouth closed do small circles with your tongue. Do it first in one direction and then the other. Repeat several times.
8 - Place your lower lip over the top lip and hold for a few seconds. Repeat ten times.
9 - Looking in the mirror, clench your teeth hard and force a smile. Repeat ten times.
10 - Make circles with your shoulders. First with the right side shoulder, then with the left side shoulder and finally with both sides at the same time. Repeat ten times, several times per day. Effective for the neck and shoulders.
Don’t just rely on one thing to help you delay or diminish wrinkles, remember that is the whole what counts.

In my experience it pays to invest in a good skin care product for the face and neck. Since I discovered Estee Lauder products I have been a big fan. I use other products that I like too, but there is always a Lauder product on my beauty cabinet. Resilience Lift Firming for Face and Neck is an expensive cream but, in my opinion, worth it. I personally love it!
