6 Best Exercises to Get Rid of a Double Chin
Exercises for double chin reduction target the facial and neck muscles. Making these muscles work out burns fat on these parts and thereby contributes to reducing double chin. Now, let’s proceed with some of the easiest facial exercises to get rid of a double chin. Here you go –
Warm-up your neck before beginning with these exercises. Rotate the head gently in forward and down motion, then back and up in a clockwise direction. Once you have completed a few rotations, reverse the direction.
Stretch the jaw in the same circular motions. Extend it left, gently. Then extend it forward, right, and then back. Hold each extension for a second or two. Now, your muscles are ready to exercise.
2. Make a Fish Face
The best thing about this exercise is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. You might already know how to do it as we used to make this face as kids. This fun face is also helpful in reducing double chin. Simply suck in your cheeks and your lips will automatically form this mouth. Hold it for 5 seconds as you feel your cheeks and jaws strained. Release it, relax for a while and repeat 15-20 times a day.
3. Kiss the Sky
Stand straight and relax your shoulders. Tilt your head back to look at the sky, pucker your lips, and try to kiss it. Extend your lips as far as possible from your face. Your muscles of the neck and chin should feel comfortable but flexed. Hold the position for 5-20 seconds as much as you can in a stretch, and relax. Repeat every set 15 times.
4. Mouthwash Move
If practiced regularly, the mouthwash move helps your extra chin fat disappear soon. With this, the flab of your chin and neck diminishes easily. And you need not find time to do it as you already do it every day after every meal (if you do so). In another case, just fill your mouth with air and throw it from one cheek to another, the same fashion as when you move your mouth while using mouthwash. Do it for a minute and relax. Repeat 10 times a day for best results.
5. Squeeze the Ball
Sit with your back straight and relaxed shoulders to do the workout while squeezing the ball. The ball should be 5 -10 inches depending on the size you are comfortable with and should be easy to squeeze. Place the ball under your chin and push it. Repeat 10-30 times in each sitting. You might find it difficult but to achieve quick results, this is the best exercise.
6. Stretch Your Tongue
With this exercise, you imitate the yawn of a lion. Open your mouth wide and extend your tongue as far as possible, in a way similar to a lion yawning. Hold it for 10 seconds and release. Repeat it 15 times in sets of 3 every day. This exercise strengthens a number of muscles of the face, chin, and neck.
By doing these exercises regularly, you can reduce your double chin and flaunt your beautiful face shape. But you also need to work to reduce your weight with a regular workout followed by a healthy diet. Cut your consumption of tea, coffee, alcohol, and carbonated drinks. For positive results in no time, practice these exercises religiously and your face and chin fat will leave. Stay beautiful and maintain your attractive self.
