With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s time to discuss the dreaded turkey neck. While it may be cute on fall’s favorite feathered bird, it’s definitely not something we welcome when it’s our own neck starting to soften and sag (damn you, aging!), but luckily there are proven tricks of the trade that can help. So, while we’re all for aging gracefully, and there’s everything right with not doing a thing, if you’d rather delay the signs of aging, you shouldn’t feel guilty about it – each to their own! Between tightening creams, medical-grade patches, high-tech microcurrent rollers, and skin-conditioning, extract-packed sheet masks, there’s a slew of newfound ways to banish the jowl jiggle and we’ve uncovered the best of the best…
1. The Overnight Miracle Worker
Go from “turkey to swan” with the help of Sio’s groundbreaking medical-grade patches that hydrate, tighten, and tone delicate neck skin and kickstart new collagen production at the same time — after just one night. Another bonus? Each patch can be used up to 15 times, so you’re really getting your money’s worth with these self-adhering miracle workers.

2. The Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream
Make it a daily habit to apply this age-defying cream am and pm for a little lift in the gizzard department. The Do Not Age With Dr. Brandt moisturizing neck cream is formulated with AHAs derived from sugar cane, a blend of essential amino acids, and calcium to target the neck and dècolletè, and sorghum juice to regain that seemingly long-lost suppleness. It’ll not only firm up loose skin, but nix dull uneven texture – works for us!

3. The Facial Sculptor
Wouldn’t it be nice to travel with an esthetician 24/7 to make sure your skin is always on point? Well unless you’ve got those kinds of coins, the next best thing is the ReFa Carat Face Roller, which is basically an esthetician’s hands in a mini roller apparatus. Safe for the face, neck, and décolletage, the ReFa is equipped with two platinum double drainage rollers to de-swell, tauten, and contour at the same time. Plus it has a built-in solar panel that generates a microcurrent to do double duty in the anti-aging department by speeding up cell turnover. And if that’s not enough, it’s also waterproof, so you can roll by the pool, in the shower, or during a bath. We’re here for it.

4. The Wrinkle-Busting Body Mask
If you’ve become a pro at masking and multitasking, add one more treatment to your skincare routine: the Skin Laundry Wrinkle Release Neck & Check Sheet Mask. Thanks to a potent combo of 19 skin-conditioning extracts, wrinkle fighters, and brighteners, this mask reverses sun damage and the appearance of fine lines where you want them the least — right under your face. Simply unfold the mask, place it over your neck, leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, and massage any excess product into the skin once you take it off.

5. The Antioxidant Hero Treatment
Tarte’s known for their signature line of maracuja products and if you’re not familiar with the Amazonian superfruit oil, allow us to school you on it. Maracuja is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin C (the holy grail product for glowing skin), so you can expect to see firmer, brighter, and smoother skin (that’s the opposite of dry or turkey-esque) once you start using this cream. It also contains algae extract to assist with skin repair and renewal. Just make sure you’re always applying in an upward motion — rubbing downward is exactly what you don’t want to be doing.
