Let's start with double chins.

Even people who are not necessarily known to have them have had to watch it over the years.

I don't know who has had what surgery but I do notice very pretty stars showing a double chin now and then.

Barbara Streisand and Sandra Bullock come up on images when you look for that so I apparently am not the only one to notice this.

How about Jessica Simpson. All very beautiful women hiding a flaw more often than not! It isn't just from fat either so what causes it?

It looks as though either fat causes a double chin or you inherit it! Is it fat that once was or still is?

A few things to get you started in the right direction can be really simple.

What is your face shape?

Do you style your hair according to what makes you look thinner?

Does this ever go out of style?

Helpful Hints

That just might help!

Eat less salt which will reduce your body's bloating and will make your face and chin look smaller.

Drink a lot of water, which not only helps prevent bloating, even in the face; but thins the salt already in the body.

Basically though to lose chin fat, you will need to burn more calories than you eat. Add cardiovascular exercise to your daily schedule.

Jogging, even gently and in place can help remove fat and firm the chin. Keep your chin up and the muscle to the neck tight and never let the muscle sag by relaxing it too much. Holding it firm needs to become a part of your posture.

Overall Health is Best Solution

Remove overall fat.

Walking every day is really the safest and easiest way to work on fat totally. I am including lots of help and advice and a video.

The very quickest and best exercise I have ever found for the neck is to lean the head back mouth open - then pull your bottom lip over your top pointing your chin to the ceiling. Doesn't that tighten? You bet it does! Do 10 about three times a day every day. So simple you can do them anywhere. (But not while you are driving!)

You may also choose to have submental lipectomy, which is liposuction (removal of fat) of the chin and neck area.

Recovery is fairly quick with few side effects such as swelling, bruising and numbness; but the incisions are very small compared to cosmetic surgeries.

No thank you on that for me!

I personally think posture hides a multitude of sins too!

Cream or Scalpel?

Anti-agers

Treatments for the face can come in many ways and forms! There is laser, oxygen, skin tightening, plasma and Radiofrequency surgery!

Exercise for the face.

Many people, particularly women, are wondering about how to get rid of a double chin without wanting to be rumored of having gone off for a serious money-blowing yet temporary treatment when they can just stay home and work on their problem spots themselves.

Double chin exercises will result in a double chin reduction without you having to break the bank to pay costly doctor’s fees and avail of procedures that are not long lasting yet very expensive, be they surgical or non-invasive face lifts using state of the art equipment.

Makeup tips for double chin.

There are various reasons of having double chin. You may sleep in a bad position or you may just inherit it. However, you shouldn’t get upset, as there are several makeup tips, which will cover the double chin. Besides, these makeup tips are quite effortless and you can do it yourself, without attending salons.

We may get wrinkles at a young age from squinting or even smiling too much! But sagging skin is something that comes with getting old.

As we age, our skin begins to produce less oil, becoming drier and loose, causing aging of the skin. Today many women are opting for topical skin tightening treatments.

There are topical creams that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and those that actually tighten the skin and reduce sagging.

If you’re trying to tighten your sagging skin, you need an “anti-aging” treatment. This could come in the form of a cream or serum.

Anything “anti-aging” focuses on the whole aspect of aging, as opposed to a wrinkle cream which only focuses on one in particular.

Aging isn’t just wrinkles showing, it’s sagging uneven skin tone and dark age spots.

A good anti-aging treatment includes skin firming ingredients like DMAE that improves skin not only tighten and firm and also tones the muscles, giving the face a leaner look to it.

Another important ingredient is Ubiquinone; which is a super antioxidant that boosts our body’s ability to produce collagen, elastin and other great skin molecules, making our skin look young and healthy.

Artificial collagen is something we want to avoid. We want the real thing; DMAE and Ubiquinone, working together to help us produce elastin and collagen that once made our skin young and wrinkle free!

Get a name you trust and even if you love it try another name you trust.

I do that and am amazed sometimes how much better I like the second when I thought the first was terrific.

Perhaps lotions are like shampoos. Even a great one needs a change up now and then.

Double Chin Hair Styles

Make sure it is a do you can carry.

Side partitions will give a puffed effect to your face, diverting the attention from your chin. The face will appear elongated!

Always try to keep your hair below the shoulder, so that the attention will be focused on the hairdo. If you have curly hair, maintain a longer length while trimming it.

While getting these hairstyles done, remember that ones which end right above the jawline would give a slimmer appearance to your face. Whichever hairdo you choose, ensure that it suits your personality and that you are comfortable enough to carry it.

Haircuts that help

The hottest short hairstyles of the moment are edgier and more modern than in years past. I'm seeing a lot of the following:

  • Long bangs with shorter sides on the pixie
  • Mussy "I just got out of bed and my hair is fabulous" shags
  • Pompadours (razor short sides and long tops)
  • Unstructured bobs
  • Long bobs, worn wavy or straight

I hate how they always say hairdos for fat women just because you want your face to look leaner or less full. Look at the girl above; I would not call her fat but her picture was given for fat faces. We should all be so lucky, huh? How about that hairdo? Great for a round face for sure!

I have found many tips to the right you will want to check out and some great hairdos.

  • Medium length hair: Shoulder length hair rather than medium-short to short styles elongate the face. Best with medium to fine hair types and a long blunt not sharp cut so it can be smoothed with a flat or curling iron to create a slim, chic modern style.
  • Shorter layers: Create layers to accent your cheekbone, neckline and jawline to create a slimmer line. Though shorter layers can be used for nearly any haircut they do work better on medium to long styles. To soften the look, style layers with rollers or round brushes to create soft waves and flow.
  • Cut bangs: How about bangs to add a trimmer/ thinner look? They should never be too short and choppy looking, but long; to be styled in different ways. See the picture above with the really long bangs or to the right look at Rachels so long to curl toward the face and cover the jawbone giving a slimmer look. How about Myley's that are long and swept back? There are so many things you can do with bangs, unless you chop them off too short. But then, they do grow back, thankfully!
  • Curly hair such as at the very top is OK away from the face but you do not want curls right up against your face adding too much volume; if you want a slimming style. Smooth curl is best as you can see in most of the photos that have curl and they create a sleeker line around the face.

Do not do anything too short or anything too wide, and have some fringing and soft lines around the face to conceal part of the cheek area and chin. Between bottom of the ear and the top of the shoulder is the perfect length to take away from your face's circular shape. A cut that's smooth looking and close to the head can give the appearance of a thinner face. Adding some height to the top can also work to elongate but there is a fine line here to not overdo it.

In the last link below are some short hairdos to make the face look thinner and I love them but I think you will agree with me that most of these models have the look to pull them off and I am not sure just anyone could, especially the first one as you will see. I certainly wish I could pull them off but they are interesting to look at and some are borderline to possibly be what you would want.

So we have two choices and that is to trim the face or choose a hairdo to make the fullness less noticeable. Maybe we can work on both things, but we have some beautiful choices in the meantime!

    Wow, Jackie, great tips here for those of us with that double chin going on! I think mine is inherited, but I do need to increase the water and cardiovascular for sure! I do not use salt or add it to my food when cooking. I know of a mouth exercise to help tighten the muscles under the chin, but one looks silly doing it, but it works. I do use a micro-sculpting cream that tightens muscles and it does seem to help, for when I run out, I can tell a difference after a while. The hair styles do make a big difference for sure. I love all of your photos here and they do show a big difference. I am surprised at some of the celebrities! Yay, no one is perfect!

    Great hub!

    Up and more and sharing.

    Hugs, Faith Reaper

    Thanks, Faith; you should share your exercise with us please and do try mine. It makes my ears ring while I am doing it but no permanent damage! lol. You can also leave your head back and push your lips up toward the ceiling. I can feel that one all the way back to my ears! lol May be great for the jaw line.

    Yes the celebs have problems too. Sandra must have had some major work cause I noticed her lately having effort moving her face! lol A shame in a way, but that's life and we none won't to get wrinkles!

    Thanks so much for being Johnny on the spot! Oops, I am showing my age now!

    Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

    Well, mine is hard to describe. You just open your mouth and move your bottom (jaw) up and down in a tight hold (stretched out in a smile sort of) and you can feel it tightening it up. I will try the one you suggested too! Need all the help I can get LOL. Oh, I use Johnny on the spot too, oops! : ) Yes, I am up and at it this morning!

    Have a great weekend, and thanks again for the tips.

    Hugs,

    I have always had a round face. Several years ago, someone took a photo of me and I didn't look like the same person. My face had become so round, and it almost looked like I had no neck! LOL I found out later by accident during a CT Scan when I was hospitalized with asthma, that I had thyroid disease. It changed my entire appearance. My face swelled and made me unrecognizable. It has been about 2 1/2 years since my thyroid surgery, and I just started getting back my natural look again six months ago. It took a long time for the facial swelling to return to normal.

    CraftytotheCore - That is horrible. Have you written about that? It would really be interesting. Who would guess such a thing? Am sorry but glad you are coming out of it. Things I read though about wearing glasses, etc, claim a round face is good. But if swollen round I am sure is different. Thank you for sharing that with us!

    Great advice Jackie! I always do facial exercises, but yes i tend to forget about the darn double chin! lol! I find that always splashing cold water on your face and neck after washing really tightens the skin too. Have a wonderful New Year!

    Thanks for your tips, Nell. I think running in place (standing still) is a good exercise to firm the face. It seems to help tone.

    How are you? I read something about the Queen was gonna pass up Charles and make William King and I know I didn't dream it but now cannot find out another thing about it!

    Wish she would!

    I didn't know if the Queen could pass Charles or not; must have been someone selling an article that got snuffed! I sure can't find it now. Was going to send it to you, sounded like it came from your way. All Britishy. lol
