We all have it. That little pocket of skin that appears whenever we’re looking down? At one point or another, we’ve all looked at ourselves in a candid photo and had the same reaction: “Oh no, LOOK at my double chin!”
It’s nothing to be embarrassed about, we all have a so-called “double chin”. But the most frustrating part about this area of your body is that it seems impossible to get rid of this excess fat, right? How are you supposed to exercise your neck/chin of all places?
Well, as it turns out, there is a way to exercise under your chin just like you can exercise the rest of your body. Just like your legs, mid-section, or arms, you can tone this neck area so that your “double chin” is no more.
All you need are these five simple neck exercises that will tone your neck area and firm that under-chin skin. There’s no need for fancy equipment, all you need is the weight of your own head and these simple tutorials. Here’s a few of our favorite exercises, which we’ll definitely be trying ourselves at home.
1. The Ladel
Start by opening your mouth wide, bending your lower lip inward, and closing your mouth as you pull your jaw forward. Each step should be deliberate and slow so that the chin muscles are properly engaged in the exercise. Allow the muscles to relax before moving on to the next workout. Loosen the jaw by gently opening and closing your mouth.
3. Touch the Nose
The “touch your nose” exercise is effective in extending the chin muscles. Do this by sticking out your tongue and trying to touch your nose. Place a finger under your chin so you can feel the muscles extend and flatten in this position.
5. The Perfect Oval
Everybody wants the perfect face shape, although that means different things to different people. If you want to train your face to be more oval, try out this workout. Turn your head to one side and thrust your jaw forward. You should be able to feel the extension of the jaw and neck muscles. Hold for a few moments. Turn your head to the opposite side and repeat.
