With aging, the outer layer of the skin epidermis starts thinning, even though several cell layers remain unchanged. Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging, and evidence includes lines, wrinkles, saggy skin, etc.

What are Jowls?

Jowls mean sagging skin below the chin or jawline. It is natural for anyone to develop jowls, and it happens to everyone due to aging. Your skin may become thinner and less elastic with time. It all starts when your collagen (a protein that makes up the connective tissue in your body) and elastin, another connective tissue protein that lets your skin return to its normal shape after being stretched, are lost. The skin surrounding your mouth starts losing its firmness and tightness. It may also be caused due to sudden weight gain or loss and constantly using a computer or phone as you watch the screens from an angle for an extended period.

Prevent Face Jowls

  • Limiting extreme facial expressions – It is natural to express yourself with facial expressions, but it is good to restrict extreme expressions.
  • Reduce sunlight exposure – Sunlight can damage your skin, so apply sunscreen when stepping outside.
  • Avoid smoking – Tobacco consumption is harmful to health.
  • Reduce screen time – Avoid sitting for prolonged periods on the computer and stretch often or take a break.
