It comes as no surprise that no one is a big fan of double chins. But then what’s your plan to get rid of it? If you are laying your bets on diet and exercise to melt the fat away, then we have something to say to you. In most cases, it is seen that crash dieting and too much exercise takes away the glow.
But we’ve got a solution! Along with exercises and a healthy diet, we suggest massaging your face daily to keep your skin tight and bright.
When it comes to skin care, then just applying the right product is not enough. Just like you activate your muscles before exercising, the skin on your face also needs to wake up. And massaging is the only technique that can help you out.
With age, our body starts losing collagen, which is the primary ingredient that maintains the elasticity of our skin. Of course, with the help of a collagen-rich diet and supplements, we can maintain its levels, but taming that double chin is still a big task.
That’s why we suggest these five facial moves that you can do daily for just 15 minutes and give yourself a face lift:
If you want to get rid of that double chin, then you have to work on your entire face. To do a forehead stretch, take a face cream or moisturiser that you use on the tips of your fingers, and from the centre of your forehead, massage outwards towards the hairline. Do this at least 10 to 15 times.
Now, move on to your eyes. The kind of time we spend on our screens nowadays makes our eyes tired and puffy. To reduce the puffiness underneath your eyes, massage the skin around your eyes gently in a clock and anticlockwise direction. After doing five rounds of each, put your palm on your eyes for 15 seconds, and now repeat the massage. Do this at least 5 to 6 times.
Here’s a motion that is very important. Grease your hands first to glide them properly on your face. Now, from your nose bridge, glide your hands towards your ears. Repeat it a few times.
Now, bring your finger around your mouth area and glide it towards the end of your eyes.
Stick to side and upward movements only, there won’t be any downward move.
Hold your chin using your thumb and index finger, and move from your chin towards your ear. Basically, across the jawline. Again, the movement will only be from your chin to ear. Do this for 10 to 15 times.
Stretch your neck upwards, put your knuckles under your chin, and pull downwards towards your collarbone. Do this 10 times.
All these massage techniques do not just help to improve blood circulation, but also aids in regeneration of skin-tightening nutrients in your body. The only thing is that you need to diligently follow this routine to get flawless skin, and a chiseled jawline.
You can also use tools like a jade roller to ensure better movement.
So ladies, get this straight! If you want to get rid of that double chin, then practice these moves regularly.
