Having a double chin is a common condition, but for many people it causes them to be self-conscious about their appearance. Also known as submental fat forms below your chin and is typically caused by weight gain, skin becoming looser with aging or genetics. There are a number of things you can do to reduce or remove your double chin. This guide covers 7 ways to reduce your double chin, including exercises, weight loss, skincare products, and several spa treatments.
Exercising the muscles around your chin can help tighten the skin and burn the fat. Here are several recommended options:
● Slow neck rotations/rolls
● Stretching your tongue up and out for 10-second intervals
● Chin presses with or without the aid of a resistance ball
● Jutting out your lower jaw forward and holding it
● Chewing gum to get your jaw muscles in motion
2.) Weight Loss:
Easier said than done, right? But, if your double chin is caused by weight gain the best way to get rid of it is by losing weight. Focus on developing an eating plan that is high in protein and low in carbs.
The most important thing is to eat at a calorie deficit. A calorie deficit is when you burn more calories than you eat. A calorie deficit of 500 should have you losing approximately 1 pound per week, which is the rate that most weight loss experts recommend.
Often, your face is one of the first areas to look slimmer than losing weight, making weight loss one of the best ways to get rid of that double chin.
3.) Facial Creams
Unfortunately, aging can make a double chin look even more prominent. There are a few different creams and products that can help. Investing in a couple of good-quality moisturizers can go a long way towards making you look younger and reducing a double chin. Choose a light moisturizer to use every morning, and a heavier one for deep moisturizing at nighttime.
Applying SPF products daily, and ideally multiple times per day, is the best way to reduce signs of aging. Apply a healthy amount of sunscreen to the face and neck in the mornings after moisturizing. Reapply as necessary throughout the day. Consider makeup and setting sprays that contain SPF, as well.
4.) Get Regular Facials
A facial is a skincare treatment that refreshes, exfoliates, and generally improves the look of skin. It clears pores, removes blackheads, and can help reduce signs of aging like saggy skin and wrinkles. Since facials help reduce signs of aging, they are a great way to help minimize a double chin.
