A sharp jawline may seem like a blessing. But genetic factors that define our structure and shape are beyond our control. A double chin isn’t just a sign of weight gain but it also steals away your youth. You don’t look fit anymore and mastering an angle for the perfect selfie is the only option you can think of.
Derma fillers and plastic surgery are some of the resorts if you want to get the perfect jaw but they are not healthy choices. Besides, let’s accept it. Not all of us can afford it. How about finding non-intrusive and natural ways to give you the oh-so-perfect jawline?
Here are some tricks to get a sharper and chiseled jawline without surgery:
Smile: A wide, ear-to-ear smile has many health benefits. One of them is that it helps you get a visibly sharp jawline. Smiling often can tone your facial muscles.
Water: We cannot stress enough on the benefits of staying hydrated. Drinking 9-10 glasses of water a day is not just a facial exercise but it helps in eliminating the toxins from your body. This promotes weight loss and helps in retaining a youthful, toned face.
Chewing gum: It is easy and works as a perfect exercise for your jaw muscles. With no extra effort, you can keep chewing gum for a few hours every day to tone up your face and get rid of the double chin too.
Jaw clenching: Just like clenching your abdominal muscles can help you build better abs, clenching your jaw daily as an exercise can give you a sharp jawline. Clench for 10 seconds or more and release it. Repeat this 15 times a day and experience a strong jawline.
Reduce salt intake: Excess of sodium can lead to bloating and affects the skin too. Avoid consuming salty snacks and chips and reduce your daily salt consumption. This may not give you a sharper jawline overnight but is a perfect aid to your efforts.
Chin exercises: You can practice chin lifting exercises daily to get rid of the double chin that is hiding your chiseled jawline. A simple chin exercise is to look up at the ceiling and throw kisses with a pout at it. Do this 10-15 times daily for a toned chin.
Facial massages: Massaging your face regularly will promote blood circulation and help tone up the jawline muscles. Use your daily moisturizer, Aloe vera gel, face creams or facial oils for the massage. You can also rub an ice cube daily to promote skin tightening. If you have sagged skin, massage in an upward circular motion.
Jaw exercises: Open your mouth wide and close it several times a day (don’t do this is public places). Twisting your head or making the fish face are just some easy exercises for a sharp jawline. You can even practice saying the vowels (A, E, I, O, U) out loud multiple times during the day. Stretch your facial muscles while doing this.
Makeup: Last but not least, contouring can be your quick fix for an overnight transformation. Use good quality products and follow some jawline contouring tricks so that your face and jawline appear toned and sharp.
