The chin or double chin is a problem that affects many women, some of whom are not even overweight but they would want to remove the fat that accumulates in the lower part of the chin, as it greatly affects the appearance of our face.
In this article we offer you some simple exercises and natural tips that, if you realize them daily during a season, will allow you to reduce naturally the double chin. Discover them!
What is the double chin?
The jowl is a thick layer of fat that hangs under the chin, and can vary in size depending on several aspects: overweight, sagging tissues, age, etc.
There are cosmetic surgery options, but there are also some exercises that we can do at home to prevent it and reduce it. But we must be constant and have a little patience. We will look for 10 minutes each day to perform the following exercises that we propose, and also we will take into account the healthy habits that will also help you to eliminate it.
The simplest exercises, and at the same time those that will help us to improve possible neck or cervical pains, are the following:
- Sitting or standing, take your eyes and head toward the ceiling, raising your chin, and when you are at the limit then pucker your lips and hold the position for a few seconds. You will notice how the whole neck is stretched.
- Bring your head gently to one side, hold for a few moments, then take it to the other.
Exercise With a Ball
We will place a tennis ball under the chin and hold it tight against the chest. We will be pushing and releasing the force repeatedly. In this way we will be able to do strength in an area that we usually have flaccid.
Chewing gum is a curious and simple exercise that will also help us to strengthen all the muscles. We can get used to doing it a couple of times each day, trying to mobilize the area a lot and do it even by opening our mouths. We will do this preferably by being alone and we will avoid that the gum is with sugar, not to contribute to the overweight or to the dental problems.
Watch Your Diet
If your gill is a genetic issue, since you have your parents or grandparents too, you should not give up hope. The sooner you start with these exercises and perform them with constancy.
The chin is closely related to being overweight. If that is your case, and you know that you have an excess of fat in your body, we recommend that in addition to these exercises you also carry a healthy and balanced diet.
You should not do without fats, since these are also fundamental in our diet, but you should avoid those that are harmful (fried, pastry, sausage, etc.) and choose the beneficial ones (cold pressed oils, avocado, fruits dried, fish, egg yolk, etc.).
You should also avoid sudden changes in weight, which affect the accumulation of fat in the areas that least desire and because they contribute to increase the flaccidity of the tissues.
Gives Firmness To Your Neck
Flaccidity is a fundamental issue to combat also to achieve a firm skin under the chin. The exercises will help us to tone that area, but we should also not forget to always moisturize our neck with the same moisturizing cream that we use for the face.
Once a week we should also perform a peeling with a natural peeling to remove excess dead cells and promote the renewal of the skin. We can prepare homemade peelings with ingredients that we all have at home, and thus will be even more natural and economical.
Avoid Excessive Sunlight
Finally, we must avoid another cause of the worsening of the jowl, which is the damage that causes us a continuous and abusive exposure to the sun’s rays.
An exaggerated exposure, in hours of maximum radiation and for several hours, causes a destruction of the collagen and the elastin, favoring the aging of the skin and the loss of firmness. Always avoid the midday hours, always use protective cream and continually refréscate with cold water. You can also wear a perfect but healthier tan.
