There are many ways you can go about trying to get rid of a double chin. You’ll see many miracle creams, potions, lotions, a double chin diet, and even a double chin device promising to be the best way to get rid of a double chin. The problem is that very few of them will net you the lasting results you’ll get from active chin exercises for double chin reduction.
There once was a time when people believed that the chin was the most difficult area to target with exercises. The truth of the matter is that there are exercises that specifically target the chin and are highly effective at getting rid of a double chin. Though the same method is never effective for everybody, the following exercises have helped many get rid of their double chins.
Hey, at least they aren’t crunches, right? But seriously, cover your top lip with your lower lip to stretch the skin of your chin. Inhale through your nose while tilting your head back so that you’re looking straight up. Hold your breath and remain in this position for ten seconds. Exhale as you slowly lower your head into a neutral position.
Repeat this three or four times and work your way up to fifteen over time. Work this into your daily routine and perform the exercise two or three different times throughout your day.
Stand in a position where you’re comfortable and your head is in a natural position. Pull your chin up to the point where you feel your muscles tense and stretch. Hold the position and count to ten. Relax.
Begin with two or three of these in a session and build up to ten in one session. Repeat the sessions two or three times throughout your day.
Stand or sit in a natural position. Open your mouth as wide as possible. Extend your tongue (stick your tongue out) as far as it can go. Hold this position and count to ten. Relax your mouth back to the natural position.
Start with a few repetitions and work up to ten. Repeat the process several times throughout the day.
The real beauty of these exercises for reducing double chins is that they can be done whenever you have free time. You can do them while getting ready for work in the morning, during your daily commute, while dropping the kids off at school, or even while watching a favorite television show at night. The best exercises for double chin conditioning and removal however, are the ones that you’re willing to do for however long it takes to work.
