Try Chin & Neck Exercises
The best way to tone up your neck area is to do some double chin exercises. These work to strengthen the main neck muscle called the platysma muscle. The first you can try involves opening your mouth wide, then moving your jaw downwards as far as possible then upwards so that your lower teeth are touching your upper lip and then repeat. The second involves tilting your head right back, then puckering your lips and holding it for 5 seconds and repeating.
Use Double-Chin Products
There is a whole range of amazing products out there specifically designed to help get rid of a double chin and it’s all about finding the right one for you! If you have a bigger budget you can try toning devices or if you prefer something a bit less expensive a chin and neck firming cream could be perfect. If you fancy something a bit more luxurious, why not try a gold neck mask? You could also try using different types of products together to maximise the results.
Chew Sugar-Free Gum
Chewing gum helps to exercise the muscles within your chin and jaw so can help you to get rid of that unwanted double chin. It can work to tighten the muscles for a smoother and more toned appearance. Make sure, however, that you are chewing sugar-free gum; the technique to work your chin muscles will still be the same, but you’ll be putting extra sugar in your body which could lead to weight gain which will counteract your hard work!
One of the main causes of double chin is being overweight, and whilst it may not be the only reason, doing some excercises at home can always help! Alongside exercising your chin and jaw, try exercising your whole body helps lose weight and burn that excess fat around your chin. It is up to you what kind of exercise you do, but we recommend aerobic exercises like running, swimming or cycling to burn some excess calories. If you’re a newbie, you can also start off with some daily walking and beginner yoga poses.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Hydration is key to good health in general, but can also play a role in the elasticity of your skin. When the skin isn’t getting enough water, it can appear dry and saggy which can only make a double chin look worse. Getting plenty of water into your day, however, can help to firm and tighten the skin and make it look more youthful. Plus, drinking enough water is also said to help with weight loss so it’s a win-win!
Work On Your Posture
The final step to help with the look of your double chin is your posture. Firstly, it is important as slouching over your phone or sitting hunched over can lead to poor circulation so the chin and neck muscle and tissues can suffer. Additionally, sitting upright with a straight spine and being proud of yourself and your body can make you seem a lot more confident. Plus, keeping your chin up can make it seem more toned!
