The truth is, a double chin is an easy thing to acquire. It is that little pocket of skin that appears whenever we’re looking down. It probably happened to you at some point that you saw yourself in a candid photo and thought: “Oh no, look at that double chin!”
It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. The fact of the matter is, if you ever experienced a fluctuation in weight, the double chin remains behind as a reminder.
And the most frustrating part is, there is no way to get rid of it, right? There is simply no way to exercise a place like your neck or chin. Well, this is where you are wrong! As it turns out, just like your can exercise your legs, mid-section, or arms, you can also tone this area down and get rid of that “double chin”.
All you need to do is perform five simple neck exercises that will make your under-chin skin firmer. There’s no need for fancy equipment, all you need is the weight of your own head and this tutorial.
1. The Ladel
Start by opening your mouth wide, bending your lower lip inward, and closing your mouth as you pull your jaw forward. Each step should be deliberate and slow so that the chin muscles are properly engaged in the exercise. Allow the muscles to relax before moving on to the next routine. Loosen the jaw by gently opening and closing your mouth.
2. Touch the Nose
This exercise is effective in extending the chin muscles. You can achieve this by sticking out your tongue and trying to touch your nose. Place a finger under your chin to feel the muscles extend and flatten in this position.
3. The Perfect Oval
A perfect face shape might mean different things to different people. If you want to make your face more oval, try out this workout. Turn your head to one side and thrust your jaw forward. You should be able to feel the extension of the jaw and neck muscles. Hold for a few moments. Turn your head the other way and repeat.
