We are all probably well aware of how to go about sculpting our body. It's all about embracing the push-up and lunges. For that peach? Plenty of squats! When it comes to the face though, and more specifically, the jawline, there are other "exercises" (AKA treatments) that do the job!
Here, we highlight some simple steps you can take at home to boost your jawline, as well as how the pros might be able to help:
1. Gua Sha is Your New BFF
It may look like a simple piece of stone, but a Gua Sha tool can really help with circulation and ultimately, help you get your dream jawline. To make the most of your gua sha massage, you can start out by applying your go-to moisturiser or face oil on your face, neck, and decolletage. Then, keeping the stone in an almost flat position, gently pull the skin upwards. First, proceed with one side of the face and neck, then the other.

Consistency is key when it comes to natural techniques like this! Try to implement 2-3 minutes of gua sha into your daily routine, and do a longer (10-15 minutes) massage once a week. With regular use, your skin will look visibly lifted, firmer and glowing!
2. Use the Right Skincare Products
Ultimately, the way your face is going to go is usually somewhat preset based on your bone structure and genetics, so it's important to curb your expectations when it comes to how much skincare products can do! However, using the right skincare products can definitely still help.
Retinoids, hyaluronic acid or collagen-focused products help keep the skin firm and plump. If you’re not using a retinol serum, it's about time to add one to your routine. The COSRX Real Fit Retinol Serum contains a slew of skin-benefitting ingredients, including retinol derivatives, to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for firmer, younger-looking skin.
We also love The Jojoba Company's Ultimate Serum, which is packed with naturally derived peptide Ameliox™ , HumaColl21™, an innovation in vegan collagen, and two weights of Hyaluronic Acid to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, the moisture infusion will keep skin looking taut by giving it a boost of firmness.
3. Never Skip SPF
Natural physiological changes aren't the only reasons why our skin starts to sag. Environmental factors like pollution and unprotected UV exposure can also speed up this process too. Without sun protection, UV rays penetrate the skin and damage skin fibers like collagen. This loss of collagen leads to loose, sagging skin that doesn't bounce back, which might make a sagging jawline worse. So rain or shine, it's crucial to apply sunscreen daily!

4. Tweak Your Lifestyle
Like anything else related to your skin, what you do on the inside shows up on the outside! So make sure to eat a nutritious, balanced diet and get enough sleep. Try to stay away from smoking too, since that causes vascular constriction, meaning blood flow to the skin is decreased, leading to prematurely sagging skin.
5. Turn to the Pros
If you want to see quicker and longer-lasting results, we'd highly recommend seeing a professional. Manual at-home massages will only show results if you do them consistently, but we know many people don't have time to practice this every day! Professional services like microcurrent work with electricity, which accelerates the benefits so you can see immediate improvement.
You can go in to see your dermatologist for more advanced treatments, too. There are many options available, like ultherapy or Exilis, which stimulate the production of collagen and tighten the skin.
