The 7 most effective exercises to help you get rid of the double chin
Eating right and being physically active are just a few examples of good habits that can help your body stay fit and young.
But the same is also true for the facial muscles that tend to lose their firmness as we age.
So today we have collected for you a series of the best exercises designed to help you bring your face back to look as wonderful as before.
As before performing any exercise, you want to start by warming up your facial muscles.
For this, move the lower jaw back and forth and then from side to side. Every movement should be performed slowly and smoothly without unnecessary shaking. Repeat 8-10 times.
1. The Scoop
Open your mouth, and roll your lower lip over your lower teeth. Imagine for yourself you are trying to collect water with your lower jaw. Move your head down as if you are collecting water with it, and close your mouth as you lift your head back up.
While performing the exercise make sure that the corners of your lips are completely loose. Repeat the move 5-7 times.
2. Touch the tongue
A double chin is also associated with weakness of the tongue bone muscles. This is why they need to be strengthened as well.
Extend the tongue as far as you can, and try to touch the nose with the tip of the tongue. Keep lips loose. Repeat 5 times.
3. "Bitch" face
If you want to restore the shape of the face to a younger look and lift the cheeks, do the following exercise: Move the head to the left, then pull the lower jaw forward, straining all the neck muscles. You should feel the stretch on the left side of your neck. Then move your head to the right and do the same action. Repeat 5 times on each side.
4. 'Kissing the Giraffe'
Imagine you have to kiss a giraffe (or someone really tall).
Raise your face, and look at the ceiling. Slowly move your jaw forward, squeezing your lips as if you were about to kiss someone. If you perform the exercise properly, you should feel a strong stretch in the neck. Hold the pose for 5-8 seconds, and release. Repeat 5 times.
For this exercise, you need to take your two fists and place them under the chin. Then start moving your lower jaw down towards the fists, and strain the muscles as you overcome the resistance. The compressive force is supposed to increase more and more. When you reach maximum resistance, hold for 3 seconds. Then release, and repeat 5-7 times.
Tighten teeth with mouth closed, and try to stretch the corners of the lips as wide as possible. Now push your tongue against your palate, slowly applying more pressure. If you feel strong pressure in your chin muscles, then you have done the exercise correctly. Hold this pressure sensation for 5 seconds, then release for 3 seconds. Repeat 5-8 times.
7. Puffy cheecks
Inhale, and fill the oral cavity. Close your mouth and puff your cheeks. Now press with your palms on your cheeks so that you feel pressure in the muscles. Hold for 3-5 seconds, then release the air. Repeat 5-6 times.
