15 Ways to Get a Chiseled Jawline
A chiseled jaw can make the man. If you weren’t born with pristine genetics, there are a couple of hacks to utilize to get a jawline like never before.
How to Get a Chiseled Jawline
There’s no tried-and-true method for getting the perfect jawline. Some practices may work for some men and prove futile for others. However, all of the below methods are worth a shot.
1. Do Jaw Exercises
Your jaw has muscles like your arms and legs. You can work them out to get stronger features.
- Close your mouth
- Push your lower jaw out
- Lift your lower lip
- Hold that position for 10 to 15 seconds before relaxing
- Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth behind your teeth
- Press your tongue to close the roof of your mouth and increase tension
- Start humming to make a vibrating noise
2. Get a Haircut That Fits Your Face Shape
Another thing you can do is use a darker shade of concealer to define your jawline.
While this may sound a little unorthodox, more and more men are starting to use makeup to help hide their acne and make their features stand out.
If you're in the market, we recommend trying out our Stryx concealer. Its dark complexion makes it the perfect choice for hiding acne and sharpening your jawline.
3. Massage Your Face
Massages are a great way of increasing circulation. For an added bonus, massage your face with essential oil to give your skin some much-needed nutrients, too.
4. Stay Hydrated by Consistently Drinking Water
Water flushes toxins out of your body. You won’t be as flush or plump if you consistently drink water. This gives you a more toned face.
5. Trim Body Fat
Ideally, you should exercise three to four times a week. Even moderate exercise like jogging or light weightlifting can trim the fat and give you more defined features.
6. Chew Hard Gum
Chewing gum is a great way to work out your jaw muscles. It sharpens the area due to consistent movement, and you can have a ton of fun with it in the process.
7. Use Less Salt in Your Food
Salt leads to water retention. This makes your face appear fuller, so cut back on salt found in snacks and processed foods if you want to look slimmer.
8. Make a Fish Face
This is another exercise to work out the muscles around your jaw. People may make fun of fish poses for photos, but doing them during your off-hours can really work wonders. Just hold the post for eight seconds at a time.
Smiling helps tone your facial muscles. It extends your cheekbones, thereby stretching your other facial muscles in the process.
10. Do Facial Massages
If regular massages don’t do anything, try rubbing an ice cube across your face. It tightens the skin and your pores.
11. Rest Your Tongue on the Roof of Your Mouth
This is ideally where your tongue should be located at all times. It works out the muscles and can lead to better breathing as you’re asleep.
12. Reduce Carbs in Your Diet
A low-carb diet can cut down on puffiness around the face. That means less bread, dessert, pasta, and soda.
13. Get 8 Hours of Sleep Per Night
Insufficient sleep can make you appear puffy. Rest adequately each night, getting between 7.5 and 8 hours of sleep, to be more alert and look better.
If you are currently experiencing puffiness, we recommend using an eye serum like the Stryx Energizing Eye Tool to reduce bloating around the face. This will produce a short-term solution to the puffiness.
14. Stimulate Collagen Production
Collagen keeps your skin elastic. As you age, you begin to lose collagen, but you can get more via certain moisturizers and cleansers.
15. Grow a Beard (If You Can)
How to Keep a Sharp Jawline With a Beard
Growing a beard is only part of the equation when it comes to maintaining a good jawline. You also want to maintain it appropriately through regular trimming. There are many ways to have a great chin; you just need to know how you look best and take steps to attain that look.
