It’s no secret that the skin needs serious protection from…
Vine Vera knows that a persistent double chin you can’t seem to get rid of can be a huge pain to deal with. A double chin visibly ages you and makes it harder to successfully pull off a lot of styles. Thankfully, there are things you can do about your double chin, and today, Vine Vera is going to show you several of them.
Vine Vera has already covered the benefit of exercising your head and face to keep the jaw and chin muscles firm, which fights sagging and vastly increases definition, and can even pull sagging flesh under the chin back up where it belongs. Further, maintaining a routine where you get at least 20 minutes of cardio several times a week is not only good for your heart and overall health, but if it helps you lose weight, that can include fat under the chin.
For ease of reference, here is one of the best exercises you can do to fight a double chin – Stand or sit up straight and tilt your head back until you’re staring at the ceiling. Pucker up your lips in an exaggerated way as if going for a kiss. Hold that for a moment, then relax and go back to resting. Do this about 20 times, and try to make it a daily habit.
While expensive and requiring a serious commitment, plenty of plastic surgery options are available to remove double chins and augment the overall shape of the face. Just be sure you understand the risks and don’t mind going through a recovery period.
There are a lot of dietary factors that could be influencing your propensity for a double chin. Cutting back on sodium intake may help, because it can help you lose excess fluid that can be building up in the chin area. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and try to drink about 8 or more cups of water throughout the day.
Makeup won’t get rid of your double chin, but it can hide it, especially if you don’t have a particularly pronounced case.
One tactic is simply to draw attention away from the chin area, which means put a lot of effort into your eyes and really make them pop. Darkest black mascara, carefully applied liner and shadow can make your eyes the focal point of your face, such that people aren’t likely to notice your double chin at all. Make sure you don’t use very bright or vibrant shades of lipstick with this technique, because that can pull attention back dangerously close to the chin, making it more likely to be noticed.
Another method (which can be used in combination with the one above) is to add definition to your face by applying bronzer to the underside of your entire jawline, and underneath your actual chin. Bronzer simulates shadows on your face, so careful application of bronzer under the chin will make what looks like an extra chin without makeup seem to be a cast shadow from the actual chin.
