Double chin is an issue that many women face at a certain point due to various reasons: lack of physical activity, overweight, premature ageing.
This happens as a result of collagen and elasticity loss mostly, but also because the facial muscles have no activity. As strange as it seems, sudden weight loss can also determine the formation of double chin.
The most common solution that women think of is chin liposuction. The bad news is that this procedure, apart from being very expensive, also has side effects: scars on your skin. The good news is that there is another way to reduce the double chin – exercises. Through them, you manage to save money and tone your muscles at the same time. The only condition is to repeat them with regularity until you built up your chin muscles, then you should only do them from time to time in order to keep your muscles toned.
Keep your neck and back straight, then lift your chin upwards. Place your lips as if you want to kiss someone and keep them in this position for about 10 seconds. Afterwards, lower your head to the initial position. Repeat this type of exercise 10 times.
Open your mouth to its maximum point, then try to reach your chin with the tongue. Stay like this 10 seconds, then repeat this exercise 10 more times. When you’re done, you will feel your muscles tighter.
Take the sleeping position and hang your head over the edge of the bed. Lift your chin by moving it towards the chest and hold it for 10 seconds before returning it to the starting position. Repeat 10 times.
Put a ball between your chin and neck and press tightly. Repeat these exercises 10 times.
Keep your back straight and turn your head to the left and right until it becomes parallel with your shoulders. At this point, roll your head in order to touch the shoulder with your chin, then roll it to the other side. Do 10 repetitions.
Position your chin towards the ceiling, then pull your lips over your teeth as if you want to frown. This position should tighten the tendons and muscles of the jaw and neck levels. Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Sometimes these exercises might be useless if they are not accompanied by weight loss ones. Your chin will get more shaped, because basically, the double chin appears when too much fat is accumulated all over your body. In order to ensure a 100% positive effect, you should also pay attention on your diet. The healthier you eat, the healthier your body will be.
