1- How To Improve A Double Chin

I often get asked about tips and tricks on how to get rid of double-chin. I realize that this might be a bothersome issue for many. So I did a little digging into the various causes and ways that can greatly improve the look of a double-chin.

If you have a double chin, you might have started thinking of ways to get rid of it fast. In this article, I’m going to properly discuss methods/procedures that have proven to work best at getting rid of double chins.

But first, let us get into what a double chin is exactly. 

What is a double chin?

The medical term for a double chin is “submental fat”. It is most typically related to weight gain and develops when a layer of fat collects below your chin or around your neck area.

Although obesity is the most common cause of a double chin, not everyone with a prominent double chin is obese. Age, and genetics, are some other factors that can cause a double chin. 

Methods to improving the appearance of a double chin

There are natural ways to get rid of double chin fast without having to undergo surgery. I’ll be focusing on those natural ways in this blog.

  • Face exercise

Although there has not been much scientific evidence to back up the claims, people have used certain exercises to get rid of double chins. This is because exercise is one of the simplest ways to tighten your skin and help eliminate the excess fat around your neck and chin.

These easy exercises, often known as facial yoga, assist to firm up the area under your chin. Examples include:

  1. Puckering your lips and moving them from side to side.
  2. Tilting your head back and looking at the ceiling, then pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth and holding for a few seconds.
  3. Placing your fingertips on your chin and slowly sliding them down your neck, then lifting your head up and down as you resist against your fingers
  4. Try a chin-toning product: There are creams and other products available that are specifically designed to help tighten and tone the skin on the chin and neck.

KITSCH Stainless Steel Gua Sha

This little Gua Sha tool is an amazing beauty tool you should definitely integrate into your self-care routine. It helps to give a youthful appearance as it has facial contouring properties and helps with lymphatic drainage and swelling. This is great as helps to promote blood circulation and drains excess fluid from our tissues which can make your face look slimmer.

Its design makes it so that you can use the longest edge to scrape down the chin, stopping before you reach your neck. You can then continue to glide up the jawline for added definition.  Always make sure to move your hand upward to your chin to prevent any sagging on your neck.



  • Weight Loss

Since double chins are mostly always caused by weight gain, it is best to lose weight (if you’re overweight) in order to get rid of them.

You can try going on a diet, taking workouts more seriously, and drinking lots of water so you can shed off any extra pounds. As you shed off some body weight, you’ll realize that the appearance of your double chin also reduces and more importantly you should always try to maintain a healthy weight to feel your best.

  • Skincare

Using skincare products that contain ingredients such as retinol and glycolic acid can help tighten and firm the skin under the chin. 

Bloomeffects Black Tulip Overnight Retinoid Serum is the best retinol product for this purpose. This is because it contains natural retinol – bakuchiol – instead of synthetic irritating retinol. Follow it up with Taila Prana Face Oil which brightens and nourishes the skin making it suitable for all skin types!


  • Get a non-surgical treatment

There are several non-surgical treatments that can help reduce the appearance of a double chin, including:

1.Kybella – an injectable treatment that dissolves fat cells.

2. Ultherapy –  uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, may also be effective in reducing the appearance of a double chin.

3. CoolSculpting – a treatment that uses cold temperatures to freeze and eliminate fat cells.

4. Thermal mapping – a temperature sensing algorithm that ensures precise temperatures for the most effective treatments. The tool heats deep within the layers of the skin, which encourages elastin, resulting in tigher and smoother skin. Tripollar Stop X Rose is a skin tightening, facial reshaping device that uses thermal mapping innovation for immediate, professional-level results. 

5. Red Light Therapy – a treatment that does wonders when it comes to treating and preventing premature signs of aging such as  fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. It penetrates deep into the skin and helps to reverse the loss of firmness and elasticity which is a big contributor of unwanted fat under our chins.

  • Consider surgery

 If non-surgical options are not effective, you may want to consider surgery to remove excess fat and skin from the chin and neck area. Options include liposuction and a neck lift. These procedures should be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

  • Have good posture

Standing up straight and holding your head up high can help to elongate your neck and make a double chin less noticeable.

  • Hydration

Drinking plenty of water can help to flush out excess fluids and toxins from the body, which may help to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

As amazing as water is for our bodies it is crucial for you to intake water only after it’s been properly filtered to remove all harmful toxins. To learn more about why our water is so toxic, check out our blog here. My personal favorite filter is Simpure Y7 Uv Countertop Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System. I have been using it for several months and each times I test it the water is optimal!


    It’s important to note that these methods may not be effective for everyone and that the best approach will depend on the individual and the specific cause of the double chin. It’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before starting any new treatment or exercise program.


    2- How To Treat Eczema Naturally

    Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a skin condition that causes red, itchy, and inflamed patches of skin. It can be treated with a combination of self-care measures and medical treatment. 

    Causes of eczema

    The exact cause of eczema is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to a combination of genetic, dietary and environmental factors. Some of the potential causes of eczema include:

    • Genetics: Eczema tends to run in families, so if you have a parent or sibling with eczema, you may be more likely to develop it.
    • Immune system dysfunction: People with eczema often have an overactive immune system, which can cause inflammation in the skin.
    • Environmental factors: Environmental factors, such as exposure to irritants, allergens, or dry air, can trigger eczema flare-ups.
    • Diet: Food sensitivities can be a key contributor to eczema flare-ups. More on this below.
    • Skin barrier dysfunction: The skin serves as a barrier that protects the body from the outside environment. In people with eczema, the skin barrier may be weakened, which can make the skin more prone to irritation and inflammation.


    How to treat eczema naturally

    There are different ways and methods to get rid of eczema. In this guide, I’ll be talking about topical and dietary solutions to eczema.

    Topical solutions

    • Keep your skin moisturized:

    Make sure to use CLEAN formulations, approved by The Beauty Doctrine, that are free of both synthetic and natural triggers.

    Dry skin can make eczema worse, so it’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Use a moisturizer several times a day, especially after showering or washing your hands. Include body serums & creams. This blog goes into more detail about the skin barrier function. You may find a variety of suitable products in the sensitive skin section here. But here are a few favorites:

    Blübiome Stem Cell Repair Cream is a good cream that will help you stay moisturized. It is also a prebiotic cream that helps restore skin tone, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    One-Love Botanical C Facial Serum is one serum I like to recommend. It is packed with ingredients that reinforce the lipid barrier, such as Jojoba and Shea oils, while delivering protective antioxidants to boost skin function and overall health. 


    • Avoid irritants: 

    Certain substances, such as harsh soaps, detergents, fragrances, essential oils, certain preservatives, and alcohol, can irritate your skin and make your eczema worse. Make sure you always check the ingredient list of products you buy and try to avoid these irritants.

    • Take short, lukewarm baths or showers: 

    Hot water and long baths or showers can strip the skin of its natural oils, which can make eczema worse. Instead, take short, lukewarm baths or showers and use a gentle, fragrance-free soap.

    Agent Nateur Holi (Wash) Ageless resurfacing body cleanser is made of nourishing ingredients such as Algae extract and gently exfoliates your skin while adding hydration and leaving it silky smooth.  


    • Use a humidifier: 

    Dry air can dry out your skin and make eczema symptoms worse. Using a humidifier in your home can help to add moisture to the air and keep your skin hydrated.

    A great humidifier that I recommend is Homedics Totalcomfort Plus Ultrasonic Humidifier as it has a warm and cool setting all while producing virtually no sound so you can enjoy a peaceful sleep. 

    • Avoid scratching

    It can be tempting to scratch eczema-affected areas, but scratching can damage the skin and make the problem worse. Instead, try using a cold compress or taking an over-the-counter anti-itch medication to reduce the urge to scratch.

    • Coconut oil or oatmeal baths 

    Coconut oil and/or oatmeal baths can help to reduce the symptoms of eczema. This is because coconut oil hydrates the skin, reduces bacteria, reduces inflammation and pain, and reduces oxidative stress. All of which are key components in preventing eczema.

    Also, oatmeal baths can help to protect the skin and relieve the itching and irritation that comes from eczema.

    Dietary solutions

    Eczema is a skin condition that causes red, itchy, and inflamed skin. It is not caused by diet, but certain foods can trigger eczema flare-ups in some people.

    If you have eczema, it’s a good idea to pay attention to your diet and see if certain foods seem to make your symptoms worse. Here are some general dietary recommendations for managing eczema:

    • Eat a balanced diet 

    A healthy diet that includes a variety of healthy fats, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can help support overall health and potentially reduce eczema symptoms.

    • Avoid potential triggers 

    it is important to pay close attention to the foods you are consuming. Food reactions typically occur within six to 24 hours of consuming a trigger food. To identify which foods may be causing your flare-ups, I recommend focusing on common eczema triggers such as wheat and gluten, citrus fruits, soy, grapes, broccoli, eggs, dairy products, tomatoes, dried fruits, avocados, and certain spices and nuts. Rather than eliminating multiple foods from your diet at once, try eliminating one food group at a time for a period of four to six weeks. This will help you determine if that particular food is causing your symptoms. Keeping a food journal can also be helpful in tracking your symptoms and identifying potential triggers. If you notice an improvement in your symptoms after eliminating a certain food, it is best to avoid it in the future.

    • Stay hydrated 

     Drinking plenty of water can help keep your skin hydrated and potentially reduce eczema symptoms. Remember to ONLY drink water once it has been properly filtered to remove harmful toxins. The common myth that tap water is safe to consume could not be more wrong.

    • Consider taking supplements 

     Some studies have shown that supplements, such as fish oil or evening primrose oil, may be helpful in reducing eczema symptoms. However, it’s important to talk to your doctor before starting any supplement regimen.

    Dr Perricone Skin and Total Body supplement is a good one to start with. It is a daily dose of premium nutrients and powerful antioxidants in convenient once-daily packets designed to help nourish your body from head to toe.

    It’s important to note that diet is just one factor that can affect eczema symptoms. Other factors, such as stress, environmental triggers, and genetics, can also play a role. 

    Foods that may help those with eczema:

    • Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids

     These include fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines, as well as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts. Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation. To find our best supplement recommendations for all your essential nutrients, including omega 3, check out our blog on best supplements.

    • Foods high in antioxidants

     Antioxidants can help protect the skin and potentially reduce eczema symptoms. Foods that are high in antioxidants include berries, leafy green vegetables, and citrus fruits. If you want a highly detailed list of the best foods rich in antioxidants and nutrients, check out our blog here

    • Fermented foods
