A double chin is a nasty surprise for every woman, which can appear without gaining extra weight. This problem is very urgent for those who are in their 30s, as the amount of collagen decreases and the skin becomes flabby. One day when you look in the mirror, you notice that one more part has appeared on your face. There are different ways to get rid of double chin, so you can try anything from expensive creams to plastic surgery.
The safest and most enjoyable of these are the exercises, which can be performed at home. Such gymnastics should be done every day — not only to prevent the appearance of an aesthetic issue on the face but also eliminate it in time.
Today we want to present to you 6 exercises that will lift the skin of the face and help remove the double chin. Scroll down to learn the details.
#1. Tongue Press
Sitting with your back straight and shoulders down, tilt your head back so that you are looking at the ceiling. Forcefully press your tongue flat to the roof of your mouth. Then, keeping your tongue against the roof of your mouth, lower your chin to your chest as far as possible without rounding your upper back. You should feel your chin and the front of your neck contract. Then relax your tongue and straighten your neck to return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Complete two sets of 20 reps each.

Sitting with your back straight and shoulders down, tilt your head back so that you are looking at the ceiling. Close your lips so they are together but relaxed. Keeping your lips closed, open your mouth so it forms an “O” shape. Hold this position for 20 seconds. You should feel a contraction on both sides of your neck directly under your jaw line. Relax your mouth and lower your chin to return to the starting point. That’s one rep. Complete two sets of 10 reps each.
#3. Kiss the Ceiling
Standing tall with your arms hanging at your sides, tilt your head back so that you are looking at the ceiling. Then try to kiss the ceiling by puckering your lips and extending them as far away from your face as possible. You should feel a tightening throughout your neck and chin. Hold for five seconds, then relax your lips and lower your chin to return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Complete two sets of 15 reps each.
#4. Jaw Release
In a seated or standing position, elongate your spine for a tall, straight back. Moving your jaws up and down like you are chewing and keeping your lips together, inhale deeply through your nose then slowly exhale while humming. When you finish the exhale, open your mouth as wide as possible with the tip of your tongue gently pressed against the back of your bottom teeth. Holding this position, inhale then exhale with an audible “ahhh” sound. The entire move should take 90 seconds. That’s one rep. Complete two.
Place your thumb on one side of your jaw, underneath your jawbone and just before it turns upward toward the ear. Place the same hand’s index finger in the same location on the opposite jaw. While holding your hand still, push forward against your hand with your neck and head. Hold this position for 30 seconds, then release your hand and move your neck back to the starting position. That’s one rep. Complete three.
#6. Chin Rotations
In a seated or standing position, elongate your spine for a tall, straight back. Then, leading with your chin, slowly and gently rotate your head so it moves in a full circle from your shoulder to chest to shoulder to back. (If full circular rotations bother your neck, stick with semicircles moving from shoulder to shoulder.) Make sure to keep your shoulders down and back throughout the movement. That’s one rep. Complete 10. Repeat in the opposite direction.
