What is a double chin?

We tend to link double chin with weight gain. However, even someone who has the ideal weight can develop a double chin. Because, besides excess weight gain, other causes might cause a double chin. Some of the causes could be genetic, poor posture, ageing skin and facial structure are some of other causes for double chin.

Therefore, here are some powerful stretches with proper diets to reduce your double chin.

  1. Smile

Reduce Your Double Chin

The instant smile will stretch the chin, it will stretch the jaws, skin, and throat region which will help to burn calories.

Close your mouth and clench your teeth, attempting to expand the corner of your lip as wide as possible. If you practice this stretch correctly, you will feel a strain in your chin muscle. Hold the stretch for 5 seconds and relax. Repeat this 5 times.

  1. Neckroll

We hardly pay attention to our neck; a double chin can also be because of underused or under stretch neck muscles. These simple neck exercises are easy to perform and can be done any time in the day but remember to move your neck slowly to avoid any injury.

Do a simple neck warm-up known as Shukshma Vyayama that will help to loosen the muscle and remove any energy blockages.

Sit in any comfortable position and move- upward and backward, side to side, and ear to ear. This helps to gently stretch these muscles and reduce double chin.

Skin sagging is a natural process of ageing, but with jaw lift exercise you can firm skin. This exercise works effectively on the muscles, around the upper lip, and below the chin, thus preventing sagging.

There is one more variation in this, move your head back and look up to the ceiling and then try and move your lips upwards, as if you want to kiss something.
