10 Ways to Lose a Double Chin

Spread the love

While a double chin is often associated with weight gain, the truth is that genetics, age, and lifestyle habits also play a role. It can, however, be argued, however, that weight is the biggest determinant in whether we form submental fat. So we’ll give you include a couple of tips to help tilt the odds in your favor!

First, an introduction to the issue:

Skin loses much of its elasticity, or ability to reshape itself after being stretched or compressed, as we age. Women are more likely than men to notice this loss of elasticity, which begins to become visible between the ages of 40 to 45 for many.

In this article, we’re going to talk about some ways to lose the appearance of a double chin. Let’s do this!

Exercises To Help Lose A Double Chin

While there is little scientific evidence that facial exercises eliminate a double chin, there are numerous personal accounts of activities – especially ones that target the jaw and neck – reducing the fatty areas of the face. These areas include submental fat that accumulates around the chin.

Here are five such exercises:

  1. Bottom Jaw Jut

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Rotate your head to the right

– Slide your bottom jaw forward (kind of like you have a bad overbite)

– Hold this position for 10 seconds then release

– Repeat the above steps with your head turned toward the left

  1. Ball Press

– Place a 10-inch ball on top of a table or desk

– Using the area between your chin and neck, hold the ball in place

– Push the ball downward with your chin

– Repeat the process 20 to 30 times

  1. Neck Stretch

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Lift your tongue upwards and hold it against the roof of your mouth.

– Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds and then release.

  1. Straight Jaw Jut

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Slide your jaw forward until you feel a bit of a stretch.

– Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds.

– Repeat the above steps one more time and then relax your jaw. Open your mouth wide if you still feel tension, repeating if necessary.

  1. Tongue Stretch

– Keeping your eyes and head straight ahead, stick your tongue out as far as possible.

– Curl your tongue upwards as if you were trying to lick the tip of your nose.

– Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds and release.

Dietary Changes

As mentioned, one’s weight (followed closely by genetic makeup) is likely the most influential factor in accumulating fat around the face, neck, and chin. By merely incorporating a few foods into your diet, you can be on your way to getting rid of that double chin – along with any other stubborn fat that doesn’t seem to go away!

  1. Fatty Fish

While this one may sound a bit (okay very) counterintuitive, fish such as Atlantic mackerel, sardines, and wild salmon are packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are strong inflammation fighters; they also encourage a healthy metabolism!

  1. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a vegetarian alternative to fatty fish. Just one tablespoon of chia seeds contains over 60 percent, or 2,457 milligrams, of the recommended daily value (DV) for omega-3s!

  1. Cranberries

Cranberries are packed with vitamins and minerals, but it is the drink’s ursolic acid that makes the cranberry a potent fat-fighting food. Ursolic acid has been shown in numerous studies to stimulate muscle growth, accelerate metabolic rate, and burn fat.

Other Options

Of course, there are easier ways to make a double chin disappear! (Hey, it’ll do until you lose it for good, right?) Here are a couple of noteworthy methods:

  1. Electrical Myostimulation (Ems)

Electrical myostimulation, or EMS, involves the introduction of relatively light electrical pulses with the purpose of stimulating underlying muscles. While the technique is generally reserved for areas of the body like the arms, abdomen, and thighs, it could work around the face and neck area as well.

  1. Sculpting And Contouring

Skillful use of some makeup can decrease the bulge of any double chin. While this is certainly not a recommendable long-term option, a bit of makeup never hurt anyone. For maximum results, take an online lesson in sculpting or contouring if you’re interested.
