A woman in her forties often tries to see herself…
The jawline, chin, and upper neck, all collectively referred to as the “chin area,” can cause all kinds of problems when you’re trying to look your best. Skin around the chin can sag, giving you an unflattering “double chin” if it gets really bad, fat can build up around the jawline, and your upper neck can start to sag a little too, adding to the dreaded double chin look.
So, what’s a stunning, fashion-forward person to do? Keep reading to see Vine Vera’s best tips for keeping this troublesome area of your face and neck staying firm, supple and radiant.
Keeping your skin hydrated is a general skin care tip you should remember for every bit of skin from your head to your toes, so before you try anything else, make sure you’re not neglecting moisturization and hydration when it comes to your chin area. If your skin in that area is dry, ashy, or generally discolored, consider adding some face oil to your usual moisturizer, and try including skin care products that have antioxidants mixed into them in your daily routine, to keep the skin healthy and fight off free radicals, agents of entropy responsible for killing off your skin cells and making your complexion dull (as well as increasing your risk of cancer). Remember that all Vine Vera products come jam-packed with the antioxidant resveratrol for this exact purpose!
Revamp your makeup routine
Emphasize your jawline (but not your chin!) with contouring and highlighting. If you have a saggy or double chin, avoid bright colors of lipstick, but if you’re proud of your chin’s firmness, feel free to show it off with the boldest colors you can think of. If you want to work on your saggy chin, buy a stunning shade of lipstick and use it as a motivational tool, knowing you’ll be able to wear it with pride soon enough.
Vine Vera covered a simple chin and neck exercise you can do every day in another article, and it will probably come up again, because it’s such a great, non-invasive way you can work on saggy chins and dull jaw-lines. Be sure to add neck stretching and exercising to your usual workout routine.
Plus, chewing gum counts as an exercise when it comes to firming up your jaw muscles, so grab a pack and chew a couple sticks every day!
Get non-invasive medical procedures
There’s nothing wrong with spending money on plastic surgery if you decide it’s right for you, but if the idea of going under the knife scares you, but you haven’t had as much luck as you’d like with other methods, look into treatments like lasering or radiofrequency, which are painless and easy to administer, and don’t require a scalpel.
Get rid of your peach fuzz
Vine Vera has mentioned before that shaving your face helps with makeup application, whether you have any noticeable facial hair or not, but removing any peach fuzz around the jawline also helps sharpen and define it. If you’d rather not let a razor touch your face, look into laser hair removal, electrolysis, or just get a facial waxing every now and then.
