Three quick exercises to get rid of your double chin

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin due to aging may also cause a double chin: 

Here are three exercises to lessen your double-chin: 

1. Straight jaw jut

  • Tilt your head back and look toward the ceiling.

  • Push your lower jaw forward to feel a stretch under the chin.

  • Hold the jaw jut for a 10 count.

  • Relax your jaw and return your head to a neutral position.

2. Ball exercise

  • Place a 9- to10-inch ball under your chin.

  • Press your chin down against the ball.

  • Repeat 25 times daily.

3. Pucker up

  • With your head tilted back, look at the ceiling.

  • Pucker your lips as if you’re kissing the ceiling to stretch the area beneath your chin.

  • Stop puckering and bring your head back to its normal position.
