Double chin is a common cosmetic issue affecting both men and women. It normally appears when hypodermal fat builds up below the lower jaw and around the neck making the skin tissue droop and giving the appearance of having a second chin. Depending on the bone structure and amount of fat deposits in the chin region, anyone can develop a double chin. However, this issue is common in overweight as well as older people. Also, it’s good to know that a double chin is far more visible when your lower jaw is moved down or when your head is sloped down.
Natural medicine has a lot to offer when it comes to effective treatment of this cosmetic issue. However, one DIY treatment is particularly effective and it only uses one common ingredient – glycerin.
- 1 tbs. glycerin,
- ½ tbs. Epsom salt,
- a few drops of peppermint oil.
Mix all the ingredients until well-blended. Then using a cotton ball, apply the mixture directly onto the chin and neck area. Let it act for around 30 minutes so as to give enough time for all the nutrients to be well-absorbed. Glycerin is highly beneficial for maintaining the skin moisture, while Epson salt for minimizing water retention.
In the end, rinse it off with cool water.
For optimal results, use the treatment 3-5 times a day.
