face-neck-shouldersIs your double chin making you self-conscious or ruining your selfies? There are a few things you can do to improve your appearance and eliminate your double chin.

Here’s how to get started.

Reach A Healthy Weight

Although a double chin isn’t necessarily the result of being overweight, extra pounds can make a double chin worse or more noticeable. Reaching a healthy weight is simple, but it takes work. You already know the basics—exercise 4-5 days a week, eat a healthy balanced diet, manage your stress levels, and get enough sleep.

Improve Your Posture

If you’re always looking down at a screen or slouching in your chair, a double chin will be more prominent. Good posture will improve your overall appearance and help you feel more energetic. Keep your chin up and your back straight and take breaks from sitting or standing in the same position.

Tone Muscles

Improving the muscles in your neck and face can make a double chin less noticeable.  Some recommended exercises include:

  • Tilt your head up and pucker your lips or hold the in an O shape. Hold the position for about five to ten seconds.
  • Lower your chin to your shoulder and then slowly move it to the center of your chest, to the other shoulder, and back.
  • Chew sugar free gum to improve jaw muscles.
  • Stick out your tongue as far as you can and hold the position for about ten seconds
