Exercises to Help Lose a Double Chin

While there is little scientific evidence that facial exercises eliminate a double chin, there are numerous personal accounts of activities – especially ones that target the jaw and neck – reducing the fatty areas of the face. These areas include submental fat that accumulates around the chin.

Here are five such exercises:

  1. Bottom jaw jut

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Rotate your head to the right

– Slide your bottom jaw forward (kind of like you have a bad overbite)

– Hold this position for 10 seconds then release

– Repeat the above steps with your head turned toward the left

  1. Ball press

– Place a 10-inch ball on top of a table or desk

– Using the area between your chin and neck, hold the ball in place

– Push the ball downward with your chin

– Repeat the process 20 to 30 times

  1. Neck stretch

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Lift your tongue upwards and hold it against the roof of your mouth.

– Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds and then release.

  1. Straight jaw jut

– Look up at the ceiling by tilting your head back at a 45-degree angle.

– Slide your jaw forward until you feel a bit of a stretch.

– Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds.

– Repeat the above steps one more time and then relax your jaw. Open your mouth wide if you still feel tension, repeating if necessary.
