There are three main causes of double chins. Based on Ebony Marshall's book, Pretty Perfect (a book which teaches people how to tone their way to slimmer faces) these causes of a double chin are genetics, the slackening of the facial muscles, and a poor diet (specifically poor calorie-intake). Nothing but surgery can help the first cause, but if your double chin is due to the other two items, you can follow these tips:
1.Exercise … your whole body. You probably love food, and your metabolism probably loves it too, that’s why it hoards it in every possible way. Since there is a natural fat storage space underneath your chin, your body will deposit some of its excess fat in this area. You can reverse this process is you burn more calories than you take in. Often, we need to lose excess body weight in order to lose double chin fat.
2.Lose the alcohol – drink lots of water instead. Look at beer and alcohol chuggers. Notice how most of them have beer bellies AND double chin fat? Drop the alcohol today. It only bloats and dehydrates you. When you drink a lot of water, you can burn or melt away excess fat. Start drinking it today!
3.Eat fruits and vegetables. 3 servings with each of the 3 major meals of the day. Fruits and veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals, makes for a wonderful source of fiber, and keeps you hydrated. Plus, they naturally protect your skin against wrinkles!
4.Keep your jaw and facial muscles in motion. Always chewing can be taxing, but it’s an effective way of keeping fat from settling under your chin. Have some gum with you so that you can chew away at any time of the day. Sugar-free gum works best; never get the regular, kids’ kind as that would be too full of unnecessary sugar.
5.Exercise the platysma. This particular muscle group spawns over the lower jaw, neck and throat. It is also the main muscle which must be exercised in order to help get rid of a double chin. Open your mouth as wide as you can, then pull your bottom lip over your bottom teeth – which makes you look like you lost all those teeth. Hold it for a couple of seconds before gently relaxing those muscles. This may also make you look like an idiot, so make sure to do this exercise within the confines of your room.
