How Can I Hide My Double Chin?
Ah! The dreaded double chin. Double chins are formed by a combination of sagging skin and a lack of muscular tone; a natural effect of ageing and one that becomes increasingly visible over time. But that's not all - piling on the pounds can also cause sagging skin and a heavier-looking face. Plus, the appearance of a double chin can be related to hormonal problems that require specialist treatment.
If your double chin is bringing you down, it is time to take some time out every day to focus on your neck and say goodbye to double chin. Read on to know how you hide your double chin and put your best face forward.
1. Massage your neck
Twice as thin as facial skin, neck skin needs just as much pampering. It's one of the first parts of the body to show ageing skin and weight gain. Start by applying your usual cream to your face and neck. If you've already got a double chin, opt for treatments designed to reduce it, as they're packed with active ingredients that will tone up and define your facial contour. For example, the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler Anti-Ageing Day Cream instantly restores skin plumpness, fills up lines, moisturizes, and visibly improves skin radiance for a younger look. Micrometic Hyaluronic Acid & Fibroxyl plant extract to increase absorption, reduce wrinkles and re-firm the skin, just what you need for your pesky double chin!
2. Try facial exercises
The neck is a muscular area that needs to be kept in shape. Start by sticking out your tongue as far as possible, so as to stretch your neck skin to the max. Then place your chin against your neck and look over your shoulder, moving from left to right. Finally, stimulate your facial muscles by stretching your skin, using your palms and working out from your cheeks to your ears.
3. The magic of makeup
Contouring allows us to redefine our facial contours. Using a contouring pen that's lighter than your skin tone, start by highlighting your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and add a touch to your nasolabial fold (the lines from your nostrils to the edges of your lips). Follow by shading, using a matte bronzing powder and dusting it below your cheekbones and along your jawline. This will slim and define your chin.
