To get rid of extra fat in the chin and neck area (and anywhere else on your body for that matter) you have to do more cardio activity.

To tone, here are two simple exercises you can try twice a day, courtesy of Jerry Robinson, research director of Health for Life, a Los Angeles-based health-education organization:

Press your palm to your forehead for 10 seconds while resisting with your head and neck. You should feel your neck and chin tighten. Repeat the movement with your hand on the back of your head, then on each side, with your hand cupped over your ear.

Lift your chin up and open and close your mouth as if you're chewing. Feel the muscles under your jaw and down the front of your neck tighten.

Nice exercise advice! Also, skip alcohol. Somehow those calories seem to end up around the chin and neck area.

Double chin exercises target the muscles of the face and jaw to tone and firm them. These exercises can keep skin from sagging to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

The best double chin exercise works on the platysma, the muscle that runs from the jawline all the way down to your shoulder. Follow these steps to work the platysma:

Open your mouth wide.

Pull your bottom lip tight over your bottom teeth.

Move your lower jaw up and down.

Repeat this exercise 10 to 15 times at first, adding repetitions as your facial muscles get stronger.

No. Neck exercise might tone your neck a bit, but fat is lost all around the body and not just in the spot worked.
