There is one place where people may find it impossible to lose weight: their chin. It may seem no matter how hard you try, that embarrassing double chin just won’t seem to disappear. Many people who have double chins may find that this is due to their weight. Oftentimes, a double chin will form as a person’s weight increases. It’s not a fun thing to look at, which is why many people may opt to take care of the problem with a bit of plastic surgery. While this is a quick and easy way to take care of your double chin, not everyone has the money to go under the knife. If you are truly committed to getting rid of your double chin, and don’t have the funds to take care of it surgically, there are various exercises you can try to reduce chine fat.
Here are 5 home exercises you can try to reduce that unsightly double chin.
1. Tongue Press
For this exercise, you want to sit with your shoulders down and back straight while looking at the ceiling. While pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth, you are going to lower your chin as far as you possibly can to your chest. Relax your tongue, straighten your neck and start again. You will complete 40 reps.
2. The O
For this exercise, you want to sit with your shoulders down and back straight while looking at the ceiling. Open your mouth so it makes an “O” shape and hold for 20 seconds. Allow you mouth to relax and then you will start again. You will complete 20 reps.
3. Chin Rotations
For this exercise, you can be in either a standing or seated position, but be sure you have a straight back. You will begin by rotating your head in a circular motion, keeping your shoulders down throughout. You will complete 20 reps, doing 10 in the opposite direction.
4. Stick Out Your Tongue
For this exercise, you will be in a standing or seated position. First, you will open your mouth as wide as you can and stick out your tongue until you can feel the muscles tighten in your neck and chin. After ten seconds, you can relax and start over again. You will complete 10 reps.
5. Head Lifts
For this exercise, you will lie on your back with you head hanging off the edge of the bed. Once ready to begin, slowly lift your head towards your chest and hold that position for 10 seconds. The trick here is to keep your shoulders flat while lifting your head and holding it in place. After 10 seconds, lower your head to the starting position and begin again. This exercise only requires 6 reps to prevent dizziness. Be sure to take breaks in between reps.
Performing any one or all of these exercises daily will help reduce chin fat and get you looking like your normal self. If you want to prevent that double chin from reappearing, be sure to pay close attention to your weight and try to keep it under control.
