We all are looking for tricks to hide the double chin – we wear clothes with a high collar or scarf and we tilt our head in an advantageous position when taking pictures.

An additional layer of adipose tissue under the chin is most often caused by obesity and extra weight, but this is not the only cause. The sagging of the skin under the chin also occurs with age, when the skin loses its elasticity. In some people it can be caused by genetics.

We offer you a couple of ways in which you can eliminate the double chin:

Exercises

To begin with, try these six exercises that will help you strengthen the muscles and skin tone in the problematic area. Unless otherwise stated, repeat each exercise daily 10-15 times.

• Tension of the jaw

Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling. Tighten the lower jaw, pushing forward so that the stretching of the skin under the chin is felt. Stay like this for 10 seconds. Relax the jaw and return the head to its original position.

• Extension of the neck

Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling. Press the tongue on the palate (in the mouth). Hold for 5 to 10 seconds and release.

• Pull the lower jaw

Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling. Turn your head to the right. Pull the lower jaw forward. Hold for 5 -10 seconds and release. Repeat this process by turning your head to the left.

Full-body weight loss

If you have a double chin due to weight gain, your task is to lose weight. The best way to lose weight is to eat healthy food and exercise regularly.Try to eat based on these principles: Eat four servings of vegetables and three servings of fruit daily, avoid processed foods and fried foods, consume healthy fats – olive oil, avocado and nuts and reduce the consumption of sugar.
