Can you really get a younger look by simply performing neck firming exercises, also known as turkey neck exercises? You might be surprised to discover how effective some easy neck muscle exercises can tighten, tone and firm up a sagging or turkey-like neck.

One of the surefire ways to give away your age, or even appear older than your years, is by sporting a turkey neck. This unflattering name comes from a description of what the neck looks like when the skin on the neck becomes loose and tends to hang down, much like the neck of a turkey. In some cases, a double chin may result in addition to a turkey neck.

This condition can be caused by several factors such as your genes, losing a lot of weight, gaining weight or just a natural by-product of aging. Especially as we get older, muscles we haven't used in a while become flabby, they lose elasticity and tone, resulting in extra skin that hangs under the chin.

Another way the neck begins to look older is by taking on an overall wrinkled look. There is also a condition known as "cording." These "cords" or wrinkles, run horizontally across the neck. There can be just a few, or many lines running across the neck. The lines can run deep into the skin and really age the look of the neck. You may experience cording of the neck before getting a full-blown turkey neck. In either case, both of these conditions really add on the years, making you look much older.

Once you begin to lose the firm profile of your youth, it can really do a number on your self-confidence. Some people, especially the ladies, are so self-aware of their old-looking necks that they go to great lengths to cover it up with long hair, turtle necks or scarves. Instead of covering up the problem area, why not do something to correct and improve this area?

There are neck muscle exercises you can do to work those muscles back into shape. By performing targeted exercises, you can see results in just a few weeks. The secret is to work the muscles the right way, and to target the specific set of muscles to achieve the best results in the least amount of time.

It is also important to keep the neck moisturized, just like you do with the skin on your face. Many people use great skincare products on their faces, but forget to include the neck.

Exercises for the neck can be performed in just a few minutes per day and measurable results can be realized in just a few weeks. One of the reasons why turkey neck exercises are successful is the way you contract the muscles during the exercise. When you contract the muscles prior to doing specific movements, you have the key to the success of lifting, toning and tightening the neck area.

There are a couple of really good sagging neck exercises that work well on toning up this area. One easy exercise is known as the "gulp," which is fast and easy to perform. While you are performing the exercise, you can really feel the muscles working.

Another good exercise is known as the “brush,” which is another easy routine to literally brush away the wrinkles on the neck and to work on a double chin at the same time.

Never perform these exercises on dry skin, and do not stretch the skin on the neck.

Combine these simple turkey neck exercises with a good moisturizer and you are well on your way to a much younger-looking neck and profile.
