A woman with glowing skin has explained she managed to get rid of wrinkles and a “sagging neck” without any procedures or beauty products.
In one TikTok video, Cindy explained: “It was years after using skincare I felt like I woke up one morning and my neck had gone saggy. Like how does that happen? How do I get rid of the wrinkles on my neck without using Botox or fillers? “
Cindy revealed that she developed a “turkey neck” by 43 but five years later she has gotten rid of it by taking collagen supplements and well as eating collagen-rich foods.
Collagen is a protein that is essential for the structure of your skin, bones, and muscles but begins to break down as a person ages. Less collagen in your body will make skin wrinkle and sag, but also can cause stiffness and aches in your body.
Cindy explained that she took a Biocell collagen supplement every day in order to get rid of her wrinkles. She said: “At the time I wasn’t doing a whole different, I just simply added two tablespoons a day of this and I chose this formula for its patented technology, it’s literally not like any other collagen supplement on the market.”
In another video, Cindy said that eating citrus fruits that are high in vitamin C will also help your collagen levels. She said: “Foods like this are gonna help your body be stimulated to produce more collagen itself.”
Cindy also recommended that anyone wishing for better skin should take a hyaluronic acid supplement. She said: “Some people think hyaluronic acid means serums on your face, but it works amazingly from the inside out.”
There were other methods Cindy also tried which helped “smoother her saggy neck” which she explained her helped her skin.
Cindy said: “Okay I am getting a lot of messages which start off with ‘I have a turkey neck too. What do I do to get rid of it?’ well this is one of my favorite topics and I have a lot to say.”
She added: “Tip number one is gonna cost you [no money] as you need to be drinking lots of water. You need hydration from the inside out. I know not everybody likes drinking water, but guess what? Your body needs to feel better to look better.”
Cindy also said that castor oil will also help your skin. She said: “Recently I’ve discovered the benefits, the power, and the amazingness of castor oil.”
Cindy showed herself applying castor oil to her neck as well as underneath her jack. She said: “It truly has some amazing benefits as it goes so deep in your skin and can help your skin to relieve any inflammation, improve circulation naturally, and of course it’s got that collagen stimulation.”
For her final tip, Cindy said Gua Sha, a traditional Chinese practice in which a tool is used to scrape the skin, has also helped her keep her skin smooth.
Cindy showed herself with a metal Gua Sha tool and explained she used the tool downwards on the side of her neck “at least 10 times” in order to get rid of “that extra fluid that you’re hanging around in this area.”
She then used the tool to go upwards on her front neck from her collarbone. Cindy explained: “Even when you’re doing your moisturizers, anything you’re doing on your fron neck, you’re always going to want to be doing an upward motion.”
