The path to getting a more defined jawline is the same as any other part of your body: Know where your target areas are and work them out! Just like you might do push-ups and reduce fatty snacks to tone your back and arms, there are exercises you can do and dietary choices you can make to create a better shape for your face. Here’s a combination of strategies for how to get a chiseled jawline and well-defined cheekbones.
- Say A-E-I-O-U
Don’t worry—we’re not here for a grammar lesson. It turns out reciting vowels can help tone your face. If you place your hands on your cheeks while enunciating the vowel sounds, you’ll feel the muscles you’re working. Build this into your daily routine and you’ll see results.
- Do Chin-Ups
Yep, we’re talking about sit-ups for your chin. This exercise is great for toning up your jawline. Here are the steps: First, find a comfortable seated position that keeps your back straight. Next, with your mouth closed, jut your chin forward and pull your bottom lip up. You’ll feel your jawline tighten. Hold this pose for 10 to 15 seconds, then release. Repeat this process for three sets of 15 chin-ups.
Smiling has a lot of benefits. It can improve your mood, remind you how cute you are, and, it turns out, improve your jawline. Smiling puts the muscles in your face to work and extends your cheekbones.
- Skip the Salt
You can’t have a chiseled jawline if you’re bloated and puffy, and that’s what salt does to you. A healthy diet is one of the best paths toward a svelte visage anyway, but salt is extra sneaky. Consume less salt and drink more water to add definition to your facial features.
- Massage your face
Massages don’t just relieve sore muscles and make you feel relaxed—they also encourage your body to rid itself of toxins and increase blood flow. Building time for a face massage into your daily routine can help your skin appear tighter and more youthful and your jawline and cheekbones more defined.
To massage your face with your hands, apply pressure to your neck, jaw, cheeks, eyes, and temples in circular motions. (Adding a face oil or moisturizer is a great way to achieve extra hydration, too.) There are also plenty of beauty tools to make face massages easier, like jade rollers or quartz massagers. For extra de-puffing and red-neutralizing effects, store your tools in the freezer. However you choose to massage your face, make sure you’re always going in an upward motion to reverse the effects of drooping skin.
- Chin Sculpting
If you’re doing all of the above, staying active and healthy, and still not seeing results, you might be a good candidate for a chin sculpting treatment. It’s a minimally invasive procedure, usually done in about 30 minutes, that removes the fat contributing to your double chin and tightens the skin around your jawline. With minimal recovery time and major results, it’s an effective procedure that proves more popular with both men and women every year. If you’ve been trying to get a more defined jawline with no luck, chin up! Following these suggestions will make it happen faster than you think.
