How To Get Rid Of A Double Chin - 6 Most Effective Exercises.

Updated: Sep 23

No one likes a double chin. It can hint people to your unhealthy lifestyle habits. Of course, different factors can cause a double chin, like age, posture, and even genetics. But, the bottom line is, having just one chin is enough for everybody. Don't worry we have selected the best face yoga for the double chin to help you with it.




Pucker Up


Pucker up is a great face yoga exercise that stimulates the temporalis muscle. If you’re not familiar with the temporalis, it’s the primary face muscle used for chewing. The more you exercise this muscle, the firmer your jaw structure will be.

Steps:

  1. Tilt your head backward.

  2. Fix your eyes to the ceiling and pucker your lips up.

  3. Stretch your mouth as much as you can towards the ceiling, as if you’re really trying to kiss it.

  4. Hold for 10 seconds.

  5. After, stop puckering and bring your head back down to its normal position.

Tongue Touch


The Tongue Touch really exercises your Genioglossus Muscle, the primary muscle responsible for protruding and depressing the tongue. It is located just above the chin. Exercising this part of your face can strengthen your throat muscles, among other things, and even make your neck (and chin) look slender.

Steps:

  1. Look straight ahead.

  2. Stick your tongue out and stretch it as far as you can.

  3. Then, lift your tongue towards your nose. It doesn’t have to touch the tip of your nose.

  4. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.

  5. Relax your tongue.

Chin Resistance


The Chin Resistance move is probably one of the easiest to do on this list. It creates resistance for the muscles that open the jaw. By doing so, it can make the jaw appear more defined. When your jaw is more defined, it makes your face look slimmer.

Steps:

  1. Close both of your hands to make a fist.

  2. Gently place both on your chin.

  3. To create resistance, try to open your mouth while your fists gently push up.

  4. When you are comfortable, you can increase the intensity of the resistance.

  5. Hold the position for 10 seconds.

  6. Release the pose and rest.

Big Smile


This move is called “The Big Smile” because you’re going to look like you’re smiling so hard. The big smile creates tension in your chin muscles. Just like the exercises here, it also helps reduce the fat stored under the chin by stimulating muscles you usually don’t use.

Steps:

  1. Clench your teeth together gently with your mouth closed.

  2. Now stretch each corner of your lips as wide as you can (just like when you smile).

  3. Next, push your tongue against your hard palate.

  4. When you are comfortable, increase the intensity of the push while you hold your big smile.

  5. Once you feel the stretch or tension, hold your pose for 5 seconds.

  6. Release and relax.

The Jaw Jut


We all want to chisel our jaw down. Doing the jaw jut is one of the best exercises to make this happen. Before doing this exercise, however, you need to manage your expectations. What it will not do is reduce the shape of your jaw, making your face look smaller. On the other hand, when you consistently do the jaw jut, it’s going to make your jaw slimmer and more defined.

Steps:

  1. Tilt your head backward.

  2. Stretch your lower jaw upwards (just your lower jaw). You’re going to feel the stretch on your neck.

  3. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.

  4. After counting to 10, you can release the pose.

  5. Your head should be in its original position.

Chin Scoop


This facial yoga move is called the chin scoop because it is doing exactly that. It’s like scooping the fat off of your chin. You’re really going to feel the stretch on your neck and your chin. The activated muscles will warm-up, increasing their strength, and eliminating chin fat at the same time.

Steps:

  1. With an open mouth, move your bottom lip over your mandibular teeth.

  2. Maintain the first move and do a scooping motion with your chin. Lower your chin to your chest and do a scoop motion as you raise your chin towards the ceiling.

  3. Close your mouth while tilting your head back.

  4. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.

  5. Release the pose slowly and bring your head back to neutral.

Does Face Yoga Really Work?


Research says that you have to spend about 20 - 30 minutes per day or every other day doing facial yoga for it to work. You also have to sustain your routine for 20 weeks, which is about five months. It may modestly improve your facial appearance, not just eliminate or minimize your double chin.


Another challenge that you might need to overcome is wondering if you have done the moves correctly. One great way to solve this is by downloading the Forever Beauty: Face Yoga & Makeup Tutorials app on your phone or device.
