Are there face exercises for a double chin?
Yes … luckily.
Double chin is a pretty common problem. It creeps up quietly on us.
You barely notice it in the beginning.
First, the chin just seems to have blended in with the neck.
And then, the flat under-chin area develops the flab. You notice a “second” chin.
How did that happen?
Well, double chins can develop overtime.
Here are a few possible causes:
2. Fluid retention
3. Weight problem
4. Dietary choices
There are numerous face exercises that target double chin.
Here is one simple face exercise that I like.
This face exercise works the following muscles:
The mentalis is a face muscle located at about the most pronounced part of the chin on each side of the face.
The platysma is a thin sheet of muscle positioned between the collar bone and the jaw, whose action is to depress the jaw.
Another name for sternomastoid is sternocleidomastoid.
This is one of two muscles located on the front of the neck which serve to turn the head from side to side.
The masseter is a face muscle located in the cheek area on each side of the face.
Face Exercise To Get Rid Of Double Chin
1. Stretch out your neck as far behind as it will go.
2. Open and close your mouth slowly.
4. Feel the tension build up in the muscles of the neck and lower chin.
3. Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Tilting the head backwards can be rather uncomfortable.
Here’s what I do to make this exercise easier.
a) Remain seated during the exercise.
b) Support your head with your hands placed behind the head.
c) Close your eyes during the exercise.
The above face exercise works for double chin and also helps to tone sagging jowls.
