Dec 26,2014: In some people, the chin is the first place their bodies store fat when they gain weight, meaning it’ll be the last place they’ll lose fat. Regular cardiovascular exercises and weight training are a sure way to get rid of those pesky pounds all around your body that just won’t seem to go away.These double chin exercises and tips, along with weight loss, are a proven way to tighten up loose skin, improve your jaw line and get rid of that annoying double chin fast that comes with aging.
Reasons For Double Chin
There are several factors that can contribute to the formation of double chin. It is mostly because of too much weight gain and inactive lifestyle, but also as we get older, the skin loses its elasticity which leads to skin sagging. Also muscles that are not used frequently lose their tone, including the platysma muscle that runs down from your jaw along your neck. In addition, losing a large amount of weight can create loose skin around the neck area.
The daily double chin exercises help tighten, tone and build up the platysma muscle, as well as other muscles around the area. After doing these exercises for a while, you will build up these muscles, and you will need less time to maintain it, as it’s easier to maintain a muscle than to build it.
Double chin exercises
1.Open your mouth :One effective exercise is to open your mouth as wide as you can and stick your tongue out as far as you can, trying to touch your chin with your tongue. Hold for 10 counts and repeat 10 times. When you do this exercise, you will feel that your chin and neck muscles are tightening.
2.Do chin lifts: This exercise helps to strengthen and tighten the muscles in your face and neck. To do it, stand with your back and neck straight. Raise your chin toward the ceiling and look at the ceiling. Pucker your lips toward the ceiling and hold for a count of 10 seconds. Repeat 10 times. Do the exercise every day for best effect.
3.Roll your neck: Stand with your spine upright. Turn your head to the side so that your chin is parallel to your shoulder. Your eyes should be looking off to the side, too. Slowly roll your head downward, then up to the other side. Repeat 10 times.
4.Open and Close Your Mouth:Start by standing or sitting upright with good posture. Then tilt your head back as far as possible. With your neck fully stretched back, open and close your mouth repeatedly, but do is slowly. You should feel the muscle in your throat area stretch every time you open or close your mouth. Repeat this several times every time you exercise to get the full benefits.

6. Platysma exercise : This exercise works on the muscle that runs down from your jaw along your neck and is called platysma. Stand with your neck erect. Tighten the tendons in your jaw by pulling your lips up over your teeth and turning the corners of your mouth downward, almost as if you were frowning. Hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Repeat the exercise 10 times.
7.Chew gum. This is an easy exercise to do, since it hardly requires any thought. Chewing gum keeps your jaw muscles strong, helping to reduce a double chin.
In addition to doing the above exercises you should also consider losing weight (if you are overweight). When a person is fat, there is accumulation of fat everywhere on the body and hence, as a result occurs a double chin. Double chin exercises will have the best result when coupled with diet.
