Exercises To Get Rid Of Double Chin

Get Rid of Double Chin

Sometimes having more than one of something can be a good thing. When it comes to chins, more than one is an unwanted problem. Many people suffer from the dreaded double chin tragedy.

Most people assume double chin is caused by being overweight, and while this is often true, it can happen to anyone, regardless of weight. While some would suggest surgery, there is a much less drastic step to take to help eliminate double chins.

The chin is surrounded by muscles just like the rest of your body. So it’s possible to exercise these muscles in the chin and neck to achieve a slimmer, more toned jawline, free from double chin. You should exercise your chin the same as any part of your body in the gym.

Here are just a few helpful exercises to get rid of double chin.

The Ceiling Kiss:
Begin by standing and tilting your head back and looking at the ceiling. Then pretend to kiss the ceiling by puckering your lips and holding the position, or kiss, for 5-8 seconds and then return to a comfortable position. Do this in reps of 15. Be careful not to hold the pose too long as it may cause strain in the chin muscles and that isn’t what you’re aiming for.

The Jaw Jut:
This exercise is similar to The Kiss, but focuses more on the jawline. Tilt head back and look at the ceiling. Push the lower jaw forward until you feel a stretch in the chin muscles. Don’t strain. It should feel like a slight pull, but not painful. Try to hold this jutting position for 10 seconds. Relax and repeat ten times.

The Tongue Press:
For this exercise, make a pouty face and not a cute one like posing for a picture. The pout should make the front of your chin wrinkled to the touch. Hold this face for at least 2 seconds. Then, while holding this face, lower your face down, so your bottom chin is touching your chest. Hold for 2 seconds and release. Return to a comfortable position. Repeat 10-15 times.
