3 Simple Steps to Reducing a Double Chin

As is the case with many weight loss goals, reducing fat from around your chin can be a long and drawn out process. It can involve strict dietary changes, an increase in cardiovascar exercise and an overall regime of good health and fitness. Some of you reading this may not have a terrible problem with a double chin, and may be in otherwise good physical shape. For those people, I have created this three step guide explaining simple moves that you can perform to tighten and tone the area around your jawline. This will help to give you a more youthful appearance and eliminate any double chin worries that you have.

Step One

When you're sitting down, whether it's at your office or just at home, get into the habit of periodically tilting your head up towards the ceiling. Doing this alone you should start to feel the pull on your chin and neck. To make this even more effective though, and if you can do it without everyone in your office thinking you're a bit strange, carefully pronounce each of the vowel sounds. As you run through A E I O U, you should feel the muscles in your jaw area and neck really tightening and working hard. If you can do this several times over the course of your day then you should soon start to see that your jaw muscles become tighter and more toned.

Step Two

This step can be performed either when standing or sitting. With your head facing forward, widely open your mouth as far as it will go. (Again, don't creep out everyone in your place of work!) Hold your mouth in this position for about half a minute before relaxing. After a few moments rest, do this again. Repeat this as many times as you like, all the while feeling it work on your jaw and neck muscles.

Step Three

Perform this step when lying in bed, just before you go to sleep and if possible when you wake up. With your head hanging over the edge of the bed and the rest of your body lying flat, inhale deeply. As you slowly breathe out, begin to raise your head so that your chin gets closer and closer to your chest. Hold this position for about 20 seconds, before slowly lowering your head back into the starting position. Perform between 4-6 'sets' of this exercise each time you do it.

Remember that the purpose of these exercises is to tighten and tone your chin and jawline. If your double chin is caused by excessive fat levels, you will also need to focus on dropping your overall bodyfat levels to reveal your new and chiseled appearance.

I hope that this article has been valuable in getting you on the path to working out how to get rid of a double chin.
