How My Sister Can Get Rid of Her Double Chin
Ok, now before you start thinking how cruel the title is I should let you know that my sister actually said to me “you should write a hub page on how I can get rid of my extra chin”. At first I thought there was no way I was going to write about something like that no matter how good natured she is. But then I thought “there might be a lot of people out there who want to know how to get rid of their double chins”.
Thankfully I am of the single chin variety (for now anyway, read on and see why I might not be a part of this group forever) and I know nothing about double chins. I decided to Google the subject and see what kind of information I could find.
Why Do People Get Double Chins?
It seems there are three reasons for the extra chins – age, weight and anatomy.
As you age your skin starts to lose its elasticity. This usually starts happening around the age of 40. Your skin can become looser which can result in a double chin.
As you get older you also can put on some extra pounds. That body fat can be stored in the neck just like it can anywhere else. This extra fat is what contributes to most of the extra chins out there. But thin people can also get double chins especially if the angle between their jaw line and neck line isn’t very sharp.
So The Real Question is Can You Get Rid of a Double Chin?
The only non-surgical way to get rid of a double chin is to lose weight. But there are several things you can do to make the appearance of a double chin less noticeable.
Cut your hair – wear your hair cut at the jaw line or just above the jaw line. Long hair draws attention to your neck (which is what you want to avoid). The biggest style to avoid is one that curls right under your chin.
Dress for success and show your chins off less – wear shirts with broad, open necklines and wear long necklaces. Avoid dangly earrings, chokers and turtlenecks which bring attention to your neck.
Show off a better feature – play up your eyes or lips with a little extra makeup. This will draw people’s attention away from the chins and to your beautiful face.
Sadly there is so much pressure to look a certain way. The absolute best thing you can do is accept who you are. Everyone has something they would like to change about themselves. We all want to look good but we should never obsess about it. My dear sister I know you don’t obsess about it and I’m thankful for that. I think you are beautiful just the way you are. Thanks for being so awesome and thanks for the idea for the hub!
