El “mentón arrebatado”: tendencia estelar del 2023.

Mentón arrebatado

Consigue un mentón arrebatado con DLM (Drenaje Linfático Manual), una técnica utilizada para ayudar con el cuidado postoperatorio después de la cirugía de mentón.

El mentón arrebatado es el look que todo el mundo busca. Si bien existen muchas técnicas que prometen ayudar a esculpir la línea de la mandíbula, la liposucción es una opción muy popular. La liposucción submentoniana es un procedimiento estético que tiene como objetivo eliminar el exceso de grasa localizada debajo del mentón.

¿Qué es un mentón arrebatado?

Un mentón arrebatado es una línea de la mandíbula definida y apretada, sin papada ni tambaleo. Ariana Grande y Bella Hadid son dos celebridades que destacan por sus barbillas perfectamente esculpidas, convirtiéndolas en auténticos íconos de la belleza.

El mentón arrebatado en los medios de comunicación


El hashtag #chinlipo en TikTok es muy popular, con más de 60 millones de visitas. Muchos jóvenes creadores de contenido están optando por deshacerse de la papada de forma permanente.

Los filtros de TikTok son geniales y muchos jóvenes son creadores de contenido. Sin embargo, la papada puede ser un problema para algunos.

La Prensa

Incluso el venerable periódico británico “The Guardian” escribió un artículo sobre la tendencia. Aquí está el enlace (se abre en una nueva pestaña)

‘Mandíbula arrebatada’: cómo la barbilla se convirtió en el nuevo punto de presión de la moda


Puede ser difícil ver nuestros rostros devolviéndonos la mirada, una y otra vez. Algunas personas eligen procedimientos faciales para verse mejor en cámara. Pamela Madsen, una mujer positiva para el cuerpo si alguna vez hubo una, escribió en una publicación de Facebook de 2021:

 “…pero mi barbilla y mi cuello. No coincidían con mis entrañas. Y me enfrentaba a eso todo el tiempo, ya que paso mucho tiempo frente a la cámara. Durante unos tres años quise una intervención quirúrgica. Y si me han estado siguiendo — Ahora tengo unos 10 días después de la operación. Ya no me siento mal por mi cuello. De hecho, estoy teniendo la reunión más gloriosa con mi perfil. Incluso puedo decir que Amo mi cuello”.

Pamela Madsen, publicación de Facebook, 14 de agosto de 2021.

La apariencia importa, incluso para aquellos de nosotros que sabemos que lo que realmente importa es lo que hay dentro.

La importancia del cuidado posterior

Para obtener ese aspecto levantado, los rellenos inyectables son otra opción. El procedimiento que elija requerirá diferentes cuidados postoperatorios. No estoy calificado para asesorar sobre qué procedimiento es el mejor. Lo que sí sé es que el cuidado postoperatorio de la liposucción de mentón es importante. MLD (drenaje linfático manual) es el tratamiento estándar de oro para la hinchazón de todo tipo. La terapia de oscilación profunda HIVAMAT 200® ayuda a reducir las cicatrices, la inflamación y la hinchazón, facilitando una curación más rápida y menos molestias.

Trust me! I promise you this: 7 solid assurances

Rose Tint Your Life social media banner for blog post "7 solid assurances"

Trust is the pillar of the therapeutic relationship. Trust is implicit and part of our code of ethics. After a treatment, I always thank people for “trusting my hands”. The body is what holds it all together – the font of sensorial information, the reservoir of emotion, and the source of much of our sense of personal identity. Here are seven solid assurances that I give you, should you decide to book with me.

I won’t hurt you:

It still surprises me how many people think that massage needs to be painful to be effective. Let me promise you this: my massage is deep but never painful. The art of massage is finding the right degree of pressure for a given area, then working just at the edge between pleasure and pain.

Good pain vs bad pain

Trust me! I promise you this:  7 solid assurances

Different people describe pain differently, depending on language and culture. But, there exists a common feeling that crosses boundaries: there is a kind of pain that feels good. Like pressing a bruise, there is a kind of pressure that eases the ache. Scientists call this the “pain-gate theory“. There is a point at which the Central Nervous System ceases to send/receive more nervous impulses. At this point, there is a dulling of the sensation. A good massage therapist knows this and works with the pain-gate theory to get just the right pressure to be healing without being overwhelming.

I will take the time to interview you and understand your history.

The therapeutic relationship is extremely important. The body is the temple of the spirit/soul (or whatever name you wish to give it). Putting yourself in the hands of an unknown therapist is an act of trust. So, I promise that I will always take the time to ask about injuries, pathologies, recent surgeries, past experiences with bodywork, what kind of sport or activity you do, what fragrances you like and dislike, and anything else that may come up. This is the time that I invest in you, I don’t charge extra for the first session. All of my patients know that I am generous in my booking times, and a good listener.

I won’t chat all the way through the massage.

Again, it seems strange to have to say it, but believe me, there are a lot of therapists who will chat right the way through the massage. Of course, in the context of a healing space, you may want to chat. We can even have a coaching session if you need some help to make a decision or choose a path. In this case, the conversation is centered on you and forms part of the therapy.

At the same time, maybe you simply need a quiet and private space to air your thoughts. The massage room offers this, too. But, I promised you that what I won’t do is fill your hour with chit-chat about my life, what I did at the weekend, my DIY projects, or my car insurance renewal. This list is only partly ironic – I have been talked to about all these sorts of things, and more, when receiving massages. So, promise number 3 – peace and quiet if that’s what you need.

The space is serene and there are few outside noises. Unlike in a busy polyclinic or therapy center, there are no loud voices in the hallway, ringing phones, or strident doorbells.

If appropriate, I will recommend some simple movements to help reduce your pain and help you move more freely.

I am a qualified yoga teacher with a long professional history. The objective of physical therapy must always be rehabilitation and freedom. If you arrive with pain or a compensation-type limitation of range of motion, and I have a safe, therapeutic exercise for you to do at home, I will recommend them.

I won’t rush.

Massage usually last about an hour. It takes at least that long to treat the whole body. When I was training, learning to fit a good treatment into 60 minutes was nearly the greatest challenge!

As an independent therapist, I carefully schedule my bookings so that I don’t have too many back-to-back treatments. This means that I can work peacefully and that you don’t feel hurried after the treatment. This sense of ease helps the mind-body to truly relax and improves the outcome of the treatment.

You will be adequately covered and warm.

Being warm and comfortable during massage is hugely important. The first time I received a massage in Spain, I was very surprised to be left uncovered. In the UK, where I trained, “towelology” or draping was one of the most important aspects. Not only for modesty but also for comfort. I also use an electric blanket during the winter months. I promise you that you won’t be cold or exposed!

I won’t body shame or judge you.

Bodies come in all shapes and sizes. My space is a safe place and LGBTQI-friendly.

Pure coconut oil for massage

Check out my YouTube video about the organic massage oil I use in my treatments, then read on ↓. I will explain a little about massage oil in general, then get into some basic organic chemistry so that you can understand what fatty acids are and how they influence the quality of massage oil.

Hey guys, Rachel here again, from Rose Tint Your Life. I’m on a roll because I am just loving😍 the new blind behind me. I finally have a backdrop for my videos! So, I thought I would talk to you today about my carrier oil.

Coconut Massage oil

This might seem really boring at first, but natural massage oil actually, makes all the difference in holistic and healing massage. Just behind me, in the video, you can see my little tea light warmer with the ceramic jar on top. I warm the oil because I use pure coconut massage oil 🥥 as my carrier oil. Now, pure coconut oil is only the fat fraction, so that means that it doesn’t have the proteins and it doesn’t smell like coconut.

As coconut massage oil is solid at room temperature, I keep it on a tealight warmer. Heated massage oil is an extra special treat, especially in winter!

Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids

Coconut oil for massage is far and away the best choice. Why? Because it has medium-chain fatty acids. Those are 8, 10-carbon fatty acids. These fats are lubricating but they are not greasy. It is absorbed into the skin and it is really, really nourishing. Coconut oil also contains good amounts of Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol, for the chemistry nerds out there). Vitamin E is the main anti-oxidant for anything fatty. You know that Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, right? Well Vitamin C protects in a watery medium…Vitamin E protects in a fatty medium.

What are fatty acids?

Fatty acids are the name that chemists give to the long chains of carbon and hydrogen that make up fats. Mostly, fats are found as “triglycerides“. This means that three (tri) fatty acid chains are attached to a backbone of glycerine, which is also a carbon molecule. In fact, it’s pretty much all Carbon! We are talking about some very simple organic chemistry, which is the chemistry of carbon or the chemistry of life!

coconut massage oil 
contains medium-chain fatty acids of 8-10 carbons.  This makes it highly nourishing and lubricating.

Medium-chain fatty acids

When I say that coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids, I am saying that you are going to find chains of carbon that contain 8-10 or even 12 carbon atoms attached to that glycerine backbone.

These medium-chain fatty acids are saturated and stable. Stable in chemical terms means that they are not likely to react to things like heat or oxygen. They are chemically inert. Something unstable would be gasoline, which is also a carbon chain, but is liquid at room temperature, has a strong smell (so it is evaporating spontaneously), and is highly combustible, which is why you don’t smoke at the gas station!

Saturated fats

Generalizing wildly, animal fats are often saturated and vegetable fats are more often unsaturated. Meat and eggs contain cholesterol, a saturated fat. Because saturated fats are more solid and inert, they are often involved in nasty things like arterio-sclerosis and fatty liver. Hence the recommendation to eat more vegetable-based fats and reduce animal-based foods. But coconut is different. It has saturated fats of vegetable origin.

These, then, are vegetable fats that are similar to animal fats. They are more like the fats that our own skin produced to protect and lubricate itself. Coconut oil really is a wonderful massage oil!
