How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

There’s nothing wrong with having a double chin. However, the fact is many people feel self-conscious about having one. If it bothers you, there are actions you can take to minimize its appearance. It’s important to remember that you are beautiful with or without a double chin.

But if it seems like you’ve tried it all to get sculpted, there are a few things you can do about your double chin.

Causes of a double chin

You might wonder why you have a double chin no matter what you do. There are many factors that can come into play.

#1. Genetics

If someone in your family has a double chin, it increases the odds of you having one too.

#2. Age

With age, our skin gets less elastic. This can lead to a double chin or the appearance of sagginess. Practicing healthy lifestyle habits daily can help improve your health on the inside AND on the outside! Need to kick start some healthy habits? Check out our free e-books!

#3 Weight fluctuations

Gaining and losing weight means your face is also gaining and losing weight. This stretches out the skin on your face and may contribute to saggy skin. It also contributes to a double chin.

#4 Facial structure

Nobody can help this one. However, your facial structure can determine whether or not you have a double chin. People with weak jawlines and recessive chins are usually more prone to developing a double chin appearance.

#5 Posture

This one might surprise you, but posture does play a role in the appearance of a double chin. Consistently craning your neck may weaken the platysma muscle. This muscle connects the neck to the chin. When this muscle is weakened, it can have a sagging effect.

How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to get rid of a double chin. There are steps you can take to improve its appearance. The most important thing to do is remember that you’re beautiful no matter what! Yet there is still nothing wrong with wanting to work on specific aspects of your appearance to increase your confidence.

Apply makeup and skincare properly

Do you tug on the skin on your face? Do you scrub it hard when you wash it? These are both big NOs when it comes to skincare and makeup application. Apply your Teami Hibiscus Infused Vitamin C Serum and Superfood Moisturizer Lightweight Daily Cream to your face and neck in a motion that sweeps upward to avoid pulling the skin down.

Consistent tugging and pulling on your skin can make you lose elasticity and break down collagen fibers faster. This is an issue because collagen production dramatically declines with age.

Try facial yoga

Simple facial yoga exercises may help keep your skin taut. Performing these exercises can be done quickly in the morning and evening. Not sure where to start? Search face yoga videos on YouTube and find one that you like.

Practice facial exercises

Facial massage can help strengthen facial muscles. Tongue stretches, ball exercises, and neck stretches are all exercises you can try. These exercises can help your face and chin appear revitalized, refreshed, and sculpted.

Maintain weight

For some people, a double chin is the result of weight gain. Losing weight may also result in losing your chin and neck fat if it is not caused by genetics or aging. If you do take this approach, it’s essential to do it in a healthy way. Try working with a health coach who can guide you on the journey toward your health goals.

Use a stone roller or gua sha

Facial massages with a gua sha stone or facial roller can help improve the appearance of the skin on your face and neck.

Gua sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face and enhance beauty rituals by promoting the lifting of the skin, leaving the face sculpted and glowing after use. Click here to learn how to use a gua sha stone for a facial massage!

Facial rollers help reduce the appearance of puffiness, and wrinkles during a de-stressing massage. At Teami, you can choose from clear or rose quartz! And if you need a tutorial, click here to learn how to use your facial roller. Keeping these tools in a skincare fridge can increase the enjoyment of your experience and help with de-puffing.

Non-invasive laser therapy

Modern technology has developed innovative laser technology that helps contour and target fat cells in the chin and other parts of the body. The laser energy works to target this area of the body. Laser therapy may take several weeks to see results –and it must be performed by a professional. This option can also be expensive. However, for some people, it might be the most viable option.

The best way to get rid of a double chin is to make certain lifestyle changes if you can. However, if your double chin is genetic, embrace it as part of who you are. If you are self-conscious about your double chin, that is okay – but you should also know that your appearance doesn’t reflect who you are on the inside!
