The first thing people notice about you is your face, so it’s not surprising that as a society we’re preoccupied with wanting to look our best.
Research shows that attractiveness is very important to humans. Whether we’re aware of it or not, we’re often judging people based on their looks.
This might have something to do with evolution. Certain facial traits that look particularly masculine or feminine might be how our ancestors were able to tell if a mate was healthy and fertile.
Studies have shown that women tend to prefer men who have a strong, muscular jawline. Just think about Superman and the leading male actors — from Christopher Reeve to Henry Cavill — who have played the comic book hero.
As men and women age, the shape of their face goes through changes. Your jawline may become less defined if there is extra fat in the neck and jaw area, or if the muscles have begun to shrink.
While you can’t fight aging or genetics, there are some things you can do to improve the look of your jawline. Exercising the jaw muscles helps build them up and give your jaw a more defined look.
