What are sagging jowls?
Sagging jowls are basically excess skin on the neck and below the jawline and chin. Almost all people notice at least slight jowls taking over as they grow older and their skin is getting less elastic. And many of them might not know about sagging jowls reason.
Nonetheless, these sagging jowls are a whole new phase on their own. They are the flashing signs for some people that the youth days are gone, and the no longer youthful appearance will start taking place. Hence, sagging jowls can be insecure points or triggers for a lot of people. And it’s understandable that some people want to get rid of them.
Even while we can’t do much about the concept of getting older, we still need to understand that jowls don’t need to appear at an earlier age. Plus, jowls can actually be just a temporary addition to your skin, and that’s it.
However, in order to know how to get rid of them, you first have to know what causes them.
What causes sagging jowls?
Yes, we know this reason is the elephant in the room. But we have to address it first since it’s the main cause for sagging jowls. The elasticity of the skin starts to disappear as we grow older. You might notice some saggy skin around your elbows first, but eventually, the sagging will start taking over the face i.e., around the eyes, the cheeks, and the jawlines.
This might be just another reason to thank your parents for their lovely genes. That’s why not all people develop sagging jowls at the same severity. Therefore, if your parents have jowls, you will most likely have them too. Hence, you got to start early on the process of taking care of your skin in order to delay their appearance.
The collagen and elastin in our skin are just not best friends with the UV coming from the sun. That’s why it is not recommended to spend a lot of time exposed to the sun without protection measurements.
If you lost a lot of weight, or if you suddenly lost weight, the skin all over your body will loosen; including your jawlines.
If you follow poor skin hygiene, or you cleanse way too aggressively, you might be the reason these sagging jowls appeared.
There are also other reasons too; including -but not limited to- smoking, severe or chronic illness or stress, lack of exercise, skin allergens, or severe dehydration.
How to naturally get rid of sagging jowls?
You can either try to naturally remove them. For example, you can regularly do some exercises that can help you minimize their appearance, and they’re really not so much effort.
Some suggested exercises:
- Blowing your cheeks up as relaxed as possible.
- Chewing with the head tilted up slightly.
- Yawning and opening the mouth as far as possible, then closing it very slowly, without letting your teeth touch.
- Grin as wide as possible, then gently tilt your head up and down.
- Lying flat, curling the neck in the direction of the chest, keeping the tongue on the roof of the mouth.
