Saggy skin and fatty deposits under the chin distort the oval of the face and significantly spoil the graceful female profile. Excess weight, age-related changes in the skin, as well as a genetic predisposition - all this can cause the appearance of a double chin. However, you can fight it. Adopt a variety of methods, from preventive to radical.
It is necessary
- - almond or olive oil;
- - terry towel;
- - cotton scarf;
- - flat pillow for sleeping;
- - creams and serums with a lifting effect.
If a double chin appears as a result of excess weight, consider a weight loss program. You need to lose extra pounds gradually, otherwise instead of fatty deposits on the neck, you will get saggy flabby skin. Drink as much water as possible to keep the skin firm during the diet.
Learn exercises to strengthen your chin and neck. Do them at least twice a day, morning and evening, immediately after cleansing the skin. Stretch your lips by pulling their tips down. You will feel the muscles in your neck tighten. Pull your lips out with a tube, fix them in this position for 10 seconds and relax them again. This exercise strengthens the chin muscles. In conclusion, turn your head in different directions, tilt it back so that the muscles of the chin are tense as much as possible. Repeat each exercise 10-12 times.
Finally, apply a moisturizer to your palms and gently massage it over your neck and chin. Pat vigorously with the back of your hands under the chin and facial contours until the cream is absorbed.
Dampen a terrycloth towel with salt water. Lubricate the skin with almond or olive oil. Place a rolled-up towel under your chin. Stretch it sharply with your hands and loosen it. The folded tissue should be firmly attached to the skin, massaging it vigorously. Repeat the procedure every evening for 10 days, then take a two-week break.
Wean yourself off the habit of sitting with your head low. If you find it difficult to control yourself, try tying a cotton scarf around your chin. Get rid of high pillows, especially if you prefer to sleep on your back. Get used to a flat orthopedic pillow - it is useful not only for the chin, but also for the spine.
When choosing skin care products, pay attention to creams and serums with a lifting effect. They, of course, will not cope with strong changes, but they will be able to tighten the skin and increase its tone. Apply creams in courses, taking a break of one to two months between them.
Therapies aren't working? Consider more drastic measures. Excision of excess fat and skin is a fairly simple operation. Having decided on it, contact a highly qualified surgeon. It is important that no rough scars remain on the skin after surgery. Success depends on the condition of the epidermis, the characteristics of your body and the skill of the cosmetologist.
