The double chin is a fatty fold that appears in the lower jaw area. This problem gives the face an unhealthy appearance of puffiness, heaviness, and visual distortion of the facial proportions.
The good news is that the problem is solvable – massages, physical exercises, and home and salon procedures can help get rid of this imbalance.
Even skinny and young girls can have a double chin. So we decided to find out how to fight this deficiency. At the end of the article, there is a bonus that helps hide the double chin.
8. The scoop
Open your mouth and roll your lower lip over your lower teeth. Imagine you need to scoop water with your lower jaw. Move your head down in a scooping motion, and close your mouth while raising your head.
While performing this exercise, make sure the corners of your lips are completely relaxed. Repeat 5-7 times.
7. Warming up the muscles
Just like any other exercise, you’ll want to warm your face muscles. For this purpose, move your lower jaw back and forth, then side to side. All movements should be performed slowly and smoothly without sudden jolts. Repeat the exercise 8-10 times.
6. Touch your nose
A double chin is also associated with weak hyoid muscles. This is why it also needs reinforcement.
Stick out your tongue as much as possible, and try to reach your nose with the tip of your tongue. Keep your lips relaxed. Repeat 5 times.
5. The perfect oval face
If you want to return your face shape to a younger look and pull your cheeks up, do the following exercise: Turn your head to the left, and pull your lower jaw forward, while straining your neck muscles.
You should feel a stretch in the left neck muscles. Then turn your head to the right and do the same movement. Repeat 5 times on each side.
5. “Kiss the giraffe”
Imagine you need to kiss a giraffe (or someone who is very tall).
Lift your face and look at the ceiling. Bring your lower jaw forward a little and curl your lips as if you are going to kiss someone. If you are performing the exercise properly, you should feel a severe tension in your neck. Hold the position for 5 to 8 seconds and then release. Repeat 5 times.
For this exercise, you need to make two fists and place them directly under your chin. Then start moving your lower jaw slightly down onto your fist, and strain your muscles while coping with the resistance.
The compressive strength should increase gradually. When you reach maximum resistance, hold for 3 seconds. Then relax and repeat the exercise 5-7 times.
Close your teeth with your mouth closed, and try to extend the corners of your lips as wide as possible. Now push your tongue against the hard palate, and gradually increase the pressure.
If you feel an intense tension in your chin muscles, you have performed the exercise correctly. Hold this feeling of tension for 5 seconds, then relax for 3 seconds. Repeat 5-8 times.
1. Puffy cheeks
Inhale deeply with your mouth and fill with air. Close your mouth and swell your cheeks. Now press your palm over your cheeks until you feel the tension in your muscles. Hold for 3-5 seconds, then release and relax. Repeat the exercise 5-6 times.
Bonus: hide a double chin in several seconds!
- Choose the right clothes
A moderate neckline distracts from the double chin area.
- Update your hairstyle
Choose thick, open neck hairdos. Avoid hair strands near the chin. A hairstyle with curls at the chin will transform a double chin into a triple chin.
- Open new horizons in make-up.
Sculpting helps conceal even the most pronounced double chin effectively. Focus on the cheekbones, cheeks, and eyes. Distract from the chin with the help of bright lipstick or lip gloss. Apply some sculpting powder to your lower jaw.
