For years, since our 20s, we’ve been bombarded with skincare products to keep our face looking youthful and wrinkle-free. We’ve seen thousands of products that promise to make those fine lines disappear and keep our face glowing and young.
But what about the skin on the neck and décolleté ?
Skincare companies have failed to recognize that our face isn’t the only part of our skin we want to keep looking young.
While there are plenty of face creams available in the market, they usually target only the face and often have only one simple goal: Moisturization.
Moisturization is important, but is it enough?
Sure, moisturization helps to protect our face from dehydration, cracking and peeling. But dryness is not the only change our skin goes through over the years.
Have you noticed your skin on the neck and décolleté getting... saggy, droopy or crepey?
No simple ‘moisturizing cream’ will tackle these very real problems skincare companies fail to talk about.
We all know that our skin ages with us: it loses collagen and elasticity and after 40 or 50 or 60 years, we can’t expect our skin to look as firm, tight and taut as it did in our 20s.
Or can we?
If you’ve ever heard of Ayurveda (the Ancient Science of Life that originated in India over 5000 years ago), you’ll know that this holistic system of wellness has a large focus on self-care.
Many routines and practices in Ayurveda are made specifically to keep our skin looking and feeling young – and what makes Ayurveda so special is that it not only focuses on the face but on the entire body, including generally neglected parts like the neck and décolleté.
As stated above, the earliest mentions of Ayurveda in ancient books and texts date back to over 5000 years ago. That means that the Ayurvedic self-care routines and skincare formulations we know today, have been around for literally thousands of years. If the test of time doesn’t prove how effective they are... well, what does?!
So according to Ayurveda, here are 5 Proven Ways to Firm the Look of Saggy, CREPEY Skin on the FACE, NECK and DÉCOLLETÉ:
1. Understand What Causes Aging Skin To Get Droopy, Saggy or Crepey
First, we have to understand that saggy and crepey skin can be the result of 2 different causes – Rapid Weight Loss and Aging.
If you have ever experienced extreme, rapid weight loss, or know anyone who lost a lot of weight in a short time (whether intentional or due to an illness), you might have noticed that there is loose skin on the neck and jawline which results in saggy jowls.
That’s because the body lost volume faster than the skin could ‘shrink’ to stay tight around the body.
Since elastin production is optimally active in younger people, the skin can bounce back to its original state.
But if you’ve blown out your fair share of birthday candles over the years and suddenly noticed the skin on your neck looking droopy... your body’s elastin production has likely taken a backseat.
Elastin is responsible for the elasticity of skin, and collagen for its firmness and suppleness. As we age, both usually slow down hand-in-hand. And with time, our body starts producing less natural oils that help keep the skin from getting dry. This can aggravate the appearance of crepey skin.

There is a specific reason why your neck and décolleté tend to get more saggy and crepey than your face.
Since the skin around the neck is so thin and delicate, it’s less capable of retaining moisture, which leads to dryness. The neck skin is like the skin under your eyes: there are fewer sebaceous glands than the other areas of your face, which give it that natural layer of lubrication. Thin, dry skin tends to have a "crepey" look and appears saggy.
Ayurveda has a kinder explanation for it. In our life, we go through three stages of life: Kapha, Pitta, and Vata – which are also the three doshas or bio-elements in Ayurveda.
Kapha consists of the elements of earth and water and is associated with oiliness, juiciness, heaviness. Kapha is the first stage of life – just think of a baby’s juicy and plump skin and the expression “baby soft skin”.
Pitta consists of the elements of fire and water and is associated with heat, sharpness, and determination. Pitta is the second or middle stage of life – just think of a teenager’s acne and hot temper, or a young adult’s drive and ambition.
Vata consists of the elements of air and space and is associated with dryness, lightness, alertness and creativity. In the Vata stage of life, we experience dry, rough and sagging skin, we may feel cold more often, but also reach maturity, wisdom, grace and mastery. During this time, it’s important to focus on practices that are warming, stabilizing, grounding and nourishing.
Now that you know that mature, sagging, or drooping skin is a result of the dry Vata stage of life, let’s find out which Ayurvedic practices can help rejuvenate saggy Vata skin!
Face creams and serums... we’ve been using them for years. Phrases like “Ultra rich”, “anti-aging”, “shea smooth”, “aloe hydration”, “express hydration”... have made it to every skincare’s dictionary. But once you look at the list of ingredients, they all look almost the same!
In fact – have a look at the ingredient list of your current face care product. “Which one? My serum, day cream, night cream, treatment cream?” you may ask.
Given that we're so dedicated to firming and tightening the skin on our face, why should we treat our neck any differently? After all, your neck is a part of your appearance too.
With the skin on the neck and décolleté being more fragile than the skin on the rest of your body, it's even more essential to care for it in effective yet nourishing ways.
Ayurveda specializes in self-care and body care! It explains the practice of ‘Dinacharya’ or daily self-care rituals for your skin, body, soul and mind as an expression of self-love. This helps build a foundation to achieve good health and longevity.
One of the pillars of Ayurvedic wellness and self-care is Facial Marma Massage. Through marma point (energy points) massage, we can help clear any blockages and stagnation within these energy points. Simply taking out a few minutes every day to massage your own face, neck and décolleté, helps you to stay grounded and connected.
The benefits of Facial Marma Massage are:
While a good Marma-Massage should take about 15-20 minutes, taking out even 5 minutes per day for yourself is enough to see effects.
5 minutes a day to love yourself, to love your skin and to feel better and look better - a 5-minute investment that is worth your skin’s while. Only 5 minutes of self-massage to give the skin on your neck and décolleté the same kind of love that you might give your face.
Ayurveda recommends doing this self-care routine with not a face cream, but an oil.
3. Use Oils Specific to Your Skin Type
We have been moisturizing our face for decades, but do we really know whether the same products can tend to the needs on our neck and décolleté? What is it that actually moisturizes the delicate skin of these critical cosmetic areas that often get overlooked? And with a myriad of options available to moisturize skin, how would you ever know what is it that would suit your skin the most?!
And on that note, one question that has perplexed almost everyone we know is - do oils moisturize and hydrate the skin much more effectively than face creams?
The answer is YES!
Let's list them out!
“But there are face creams that are oil based, do they not support the skin’s lipid barrier?”, you might wonder.
These face creams contain only a small portion of oil in them, which is nowhere near to what our skin requires.
Some more reasons why oils are a better friend than face creams:
Remember the three doshas or bio-elements we talked about earlier: Kapha, Pitta and Vata? Each of these roughly translate to the skin types we know today as: oily, sensitive/irritable/acne-prone, and dry, respectively. Ayurveda identifies that all natural ingredients (oils, foods, herbs, spices) have specific properties, and which ones are ideal for which dosha. Oils are no different:
Dry Vata skin benefits best from Sesame Oil because of sesame seed’s nourishing and warming properties, and castor oil because of its thick, intensely moisturizing properties.
Hot, irritable Pitta skin needs a cooling and calming oil like Coconut Oil.
Oily Kapha skin can benefit from Almond Oil or Sesame Oil, but those oils should also contain Kapha-balancing herbs like rosemary or orange.
While oils alone are a great start, a better way to get even more targeted benefits for your skin and make it more specific to your unique Dosha is by cooking it with herbs and spices.
Some of the best Ayurvedic ingredients specifically for dry, crepey, sagging skin are:
Also known as an ‘uber nourisher’ in ancient Ayurvedic texts, Black Gram is an extremely potent moisturizing and unctuous ingredient for an Ayurvedic oil that intensely moisturizes the skin and gives it a plump and supple look.
Although Black Gram found its fame as a staple food in South-East Asia and the Middle East, Ayurveda has known of its powers to deeply nourish skin, for centuries.
The oil derived from this nutritious kitchen-ingredient is known to promote youthful, firm and tight looking skin, and manage the appearance of sagginess and crepiness. Its intense moisturizing and nourishing powers, along with its smooth, non-sticky and non-greasy texture when added to an oil are what make it a suitable ingredient for any skincare – be that for the face or for the body!
The rich protein and zinc in sesame seed oil are just what your skin needs to feel moisturized and smooth.
Derived from the seeds of the flowering Sesame plant, Sesame seed oil has vitamin A and E which improve the look of skin’s texture and give it a youthful glow.
Not only that, like other carrier oils, Sesame seed oil is incredibly versatile, making it a delightful addition to one’s skin care routine
Extracted from the inner husk of rice, Rice Bran Oil contains Vitamins B and E which not just hydrate the skin and keep it moisturized, but also make the skin look supple, glowyand ‘bouncy’.
The benefits don’t stop there! It also contains squalene which is known to impart a young and smooth-looking, fresh glow to the skin.
Also known as coco grass, Nut Grass forms an incredible skin brightener.
The extracts of Nutgrass are highly potent which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives the skin a youthful look.
Nut Grass forms a part of natural skin care essentials targeted to make the skin appear even toned and brightened.
5. Use an Ancient, Proven, Time-Tested Formulation
There are multiple procedures and treatments available that claim to get rid of the saggy skin on your neck, like chemical peels, ultrasound skin tightening procedures, Radio frequency treatments and more.
One option is to even go under the knife, with surgical treatments like rhytidectomy, also known as a 'face lift'.
As painful-yet-short they may sound, these procedures and treatments come along with some seriously damaging risks too. You can face post operative complications like infections, reaction to anesthesia and bleeding. You can even experience hair loss, skin loss and skin discoloration. On top of all these risks, it also costs you an arm and a leg!
Ask yourself, is it, really, worth it?

"Youth Spring is Amazing
I LOVE this oil. I use it day and night on my face and neck. I have been using this for about two years and have noticed a difference in the way my skin looks and feels. My neck was getting creepy from not taking care of it in my younger days. The lines around my eyes and on my forehead were showing more - mostly because of aging and dryness. This oil has turned everything around!
“Best Moisturizer Ever!
Hands down the BEST moisturizer I’ve ever used. I saw immediate results with the first application as my age lines were plumped with moisture and visibly smoother as a result. Not greasy and lasts all day without making my skin oily. The smell is fabulous too. I look forward to this part of my daytime/nighttime ritual. This oil is absolutely divine.
