Do you take pictures often? What about selfies? Do you like them? Hate them? Is the reason you hate them that horrendous double chin? Well, the good news is that you are not alone. There are many people “suffering” with a double chin. And I know many of my friends position their face in a certain way just so they look good in pictures.
Here’s some more good news. What if I told you that you can get rid of a double chin without surgery and without spending tons of money? Bear me with me, and I will show you how to do just that.
The exercise way
There are two ways to get rid of a double chin. One is the exercise way, and the other is with certain foods and massages. Let’s take a look at the exercises first. They’re simple and they’ll help you eliminate the problem while strengthening your jaw, neck, and chin muscles.
You can perform the following exercises every day, at any time you find convenient. Make sure to relax your chin and mouth muscles before and after every exercise. You can do that by opening and closing your mouth gently, which will loosen the jaw.
Let’s start with the simplest of the chin workouts. Open your mouth as wide as you can, and then bend your lower lip inward. As your pull the jaw forward, close your mouth. Make sure that every step along the way is slow. This ensures that you engage your chin muscles.
Stick it out
Face forward, and open your mouth wide. Now, stick your tongue out slowly, counting to five as you do so. Once you’ve reached as far as possible, bring the tongue back into the mouth and count to five while doing it. Repeat the exercise 10 times.
It sounds like a kiss, and it actually is. So you’ll be improving your lovemaking skills while getting rid of the awful double chin. Sounds like a win to me. Right? To perform this exercise, tilt your head upward, extend your lips and imagine a kissing motion. It’s a simple and very effective exercise that works the neck muscles.
Touch the nose
In reality, you won’t touch your nose. But you will give it your best effort. The exercise starts by sticking your tongue out. Try to reach your nose with your tongue. To make it more effective, place a finger under your chin, allowing you to feel your muscles.
This is another simple exercise: all you have to do is look. However, first you must tilt your head back and look toward the ceiling. To stretch your under-the-chin area, push your lower jaw forward. Count to 10 while holding the jaw in that position, and then relax and return to a neutral position. Repeat the exercise 10 times.
I’m sure you know what resistance is by now. It’s the process of pushing and pulling in opposite directions, which puts pressure and resistance on objects. For this exercise, place both fists under your chin. Push down with your chin while your fists provide the necessary resistance. Hold for five seconds and then release. Repeat as many times as you like.
Start the exercise by facing forward. Carefully slap your lower jaw using the back of your hand. Be very careful—don’t be too hard or soft on yourself! I know it sounds strange to slap yourself, but it really does help. Slap yourself for about 30 seconds.
