Slow cosmetique is a movement born in Belgium that aims to bring attention back to the skin and its real needs. But when we talk about slow cosmetique what do we mean exactly? We mean cosmetics with few ingredients but really beneficial for the skin, such as plant based oils, for example argan, prickly pear or moringa, just to name a few, essential oils, aloe but also gestures and massages that help fight wrinkles, shape the features and firm up the face. In short, a real rejuvenating treatment. To combat the aging processes that tend to relax the skin it is important not to focus only on the muscles of the forehead or cheeks but also to pay attention to those of the mandibular area that will help fight sagging in the region under the chin and on the neck (D'souza et al, J Clin Diagn Res, 2014). So today we see how to fight the double chin, reshape the oval of the face and keep the neck healthy and toned.
Exercise against double chin and to reshape the oval of the face
Inhale through the nose. Then, during the exhalation that should be slow, press the tongue against the upper palate while the jaw slightly moves forward. You can repeat up to ten times a day.
Exercise against double chin, useful also to tone the jaw while maintaining the harmony of the face - Close your mouth and bring your teeth closer together. Then separate your teeth as much as possible without opening your lips. Slowly, but continuously, bring the jaw forward. Stretch your upper lip upward and hold for 5 seconds. Then return to the starting position, take a breath and repeat 5 times.
Exercise for a toned neck
Get seated so that you have a table in front of you where you can comfortably rest your elbows. Rest your elbows and place your hands under your chin with your palms facing up and the fingers looking towards the temples. Take a full breath, then breathe in and at the moment of exhalation, with the air coming out of the nose without forcing it, try to tilt the head forward while the hands are opposed to the movement.
