How To Get Rid Of Excess Chin Flab
If you have a double chin, there’s a good chance that you are dying to get rid of it. The difficult thing about double chins is that even the thinnest of people can develop a double chin. Having that excess flab hanging off under your chin makes a big difference in how you look – and usually for the worse. If you have been trying to use different face tightening creams and are now considering surgical removal, read this first on how you can naturally exercise that double chin away.
What Is a Double Chin?
A double chin is basically excess fat that our body decides to store right around our neck. This subcutaneous fat that is stored then sags down and creates a sort of wrinkle right under the chin, giving us the appearance of a double chin.
Double chins mostly affect those who are overweight or obese, but depending on the amount of loose skin one may have and an individual’s bone structure, anyone can develop a double chin.
TIP: All exercises will be far more effective if you combine the double chin exercises with eating healthier, whole foods and increase the amount of exercise you perform in a day.
The Double Chin Removal Exercises
Did you know that every time you open your mouth to talk, you are actually exercising the muscles that will help get rid of that pesky double chin? One of the easiest exercises that you can do is open your mouth as wide as you can, and hold that pose for a few seconds. Then, close your mouth slowly, focusing on putting your bottom teeth over your top teeth so that you would have an under bite. Hold that pose for a few seconds, and then release. Repeat this exercise at least ten times and you will see a difference in a few short weeks.
TIP: Adding some resistance to this exercise will really help tone up and shape up your face. Take a tennis ball and place it under your chin. As you open your mouth in the above exercise, the tennis ball will give some added resistance, making you work harder and burn more fat cells under your chin.
For the next exercise, stand up and pull your head back slightly so that your face is pointed towards the ceiling. Now try to raise your lips and “kiss” the ceiling, puckering your lips tightly upwards. Hold this for a few seconds and then release. Repeat this exercise five times several times a day.
The last exercise that you will learn requires you to either be standing or seated. Pull your spin so that it is straight up and then, while leading with your chin, rotate your head gently from one shoulder to another. Make sure that the movements are slight and precise – don’t try to rush this exercise (doing this quickly may result in a neck injury). Do any where from three to five times every day and you will soon see a big difference in your double chin.
