Get rid of a double chin

Doing some facial or more specifically neck or chin exercises might reduce your double chin. Here are a variety of suggestions from Wiki .com

(1) Try this exercise: 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.

(2) Try this exercise: 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.

(3) Try this exercise: Sit up straight in an armless chair, holding the bottom of the chair with your hands at your sides, tilt your head back and alternately close your mouth pushing your chin forward and them open your mouth as wide as you can.

(4) Try this exercise: A chin exercise is to tilt your head back sitting in a chair and try to kiss the ceiling, you will feel it work under your chin.

(5) Try this exercise: Lift chin slightly upward. With flat point of index and middle fingers press against indentation (hollow) formed by the two upper nodules of the larynx located at the curve from chin to neck. Do not be concerned in the beginning as to the precise location of pressure which you will discover through practice. Regard finger pressure as the resistance against the working muscles. Now press your back teeth firmly together and while maintaining this position, press the tip of your tongue against the inside of lower front teeth (gum line) increasing pressure with the tip of tongue in 10 or more gradual and definite steps (Count to 10). Hold end position of pressure for 6 seconds (count slowly to six). Release muscle work for 10 gradual steps (count to 10). Remove finger resistance. Repeat 4 more times.

(6) Try this exercise: Slap under the chin with the back of your hand. When slapping, start gently and build up speed gradually. Do this for a couple of minutes each time, two or three times a day.

(7) Try this exercise: Exercise the muscle called the platysma whose function is to pull down the corners of the mouth and pull down the jawbone. Open your mouth wide, and then pull up your bottom lip over your bottom teeth. Move your jaw up and down as if you're trying to scoop something up with it - imagine the movement of the shovel on a digger scooping up earth or debris on a building site. Perform ten repetitions of this exercise each time, and again do this two or three times a day.

Here are other types of suggestions:

(a) Eat healthily. Eat an apple or grapes and have healthy vegetables and protein. Have a healthy snack like like a salad. Exercise lightly at first, then workout a little bit more every day that you work out. This will make you look thinner and muscular too. It will also help to get rid of your double chin.

(b) Eat a very balanced diet. Don't eat JUNK! because it will make you gain more than you trying to lose.

(c) Exercise. Whether you lift weights, run, or walk make sure you incorporate this into your daily exercise routing. Don't eat fried foots, red meat, or white bread. DO NOT eat after 6 pm. This should help.

(d) There is another way (it's simple you won't even notice it because you'll be asleep), sleep with one flat pillow. When you sleep with two or one slanted or two slanted etc. you will get a double chin. Here is a temporary way: If you hold your tongue to the roof of your mouth it will get rid of your double chin until you let it down again.

(e) You can almost hide a double chin with make-up. Purchase a bronzer or a shade darker than your natural tone [fair skin: bronzer; bronzed to tan skin: darker foundation.) Take your foundation or blush brush and place the bronzer or dark foundation under your chin.

(f) There is no easy way to get rid of your double chin. You have to lose weight all over your body first, to do so you need to eat healthy foods in the right amounts, and exercise. Please note that it is very important to exercise your entire body. Doing facial exercise to get rid of your double chin will help you only if you eat healthy foods and exercise your entire body.

(g) Alternatively, exercise and eat less if you are overweight.

You can get rid of a double chin cosmetically by opting for chin liposuction. However, another procedure called a neck-lace platysmaplasty , which tightens the muscles underneath the neck, may also be an option.
