Top 5 Ways To Reduce A Double Chin
We all love the thought of cute chubby babies with big cheeks, but it’s completely different when it comes to adults, and you are rocking a little thing called a double chin. This problem is otherwise known as submental fat. It is quite a common thing, and it happens when you have a layer of fat forming under the chin. People think that a double chin usually appears due to weight gain, but that is not necessarily the case. Other factors may cause it, such as genetics or having looser skin than usual.
What Really Causes a Double Chin?
A double chin can be developed due to several factors such as:
- Genetics- As we inherit our other facial features, unfortunately we can also inherit a double chin. Usually it happens in people with a family history of a double chin or less elastic skin.
- Aging – As we age, a lot of things change in our bodies. In this case one of the unpleasant changes is that skin loses elasticity and starts sagging. Another thing is that the collagen deposits reduce, and this causes loose skin and fat herniating in the neck area, thus causing a double chin.
- Gaining weight- when we gain weight, the accumulated fat can cause the skin to stretch and lose elasticity, and so we have forming of a double chin.
Whatever the reason, a double chin can feel like an unsightly feature and may cause self-esteem issues. Here are the top 5 ways we would advise for losing that annoying double chin.
How To Ditch the Double Chin
A healthy and balanced diet is essential if you want to be healthy and look good. This requires even more attention if you have gained weight. If your double chin is caused by weight gain, here are some things you need to introduce to your diet:
> Make sure you incorporate plenty of fruits and vegetables into your diet. You should have at least four servings of vegetables and about three servings of fruit per day.
> Reduce the amount of sugar you eat.
> Eat only low-fat dairy products as they tend to make you bloated and may add many calories to your diet. Always opt for healthy fats such as nuts, olive oil, and avocado.
> When it comes to protein, opt for lean meat such as fish or poultry.
> Make sure you control your portion sizes, as sometimes even healthy foods can be very high in calories.
Exercising is necessary for a toned body, and this goes for the chin as well. Some good exercises are:
> Chin lifts: Simply tilt your head back towards the ceiling and pucker your lips as if you are trying to kiss it. Hold for 5 seconds and then release. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times.
> Head rolls: Inhale and roll your head to one side until your chin touches your shoulder. Exhale and roll down to your chest. Repeat on the other side and touch your shoulder again. Do 5-10 reps of this exercise on each side.
> Chewing gum: Take a piece of chewing gum and chew it with your head tilted back. Chew 20 times and then rest. Do 10 sets of this.
> Tongue stretch: Stick your tongue out as far as you can and then bring it up towards your nose. Hold for 10 seconds and then release.
> Ball exercise: Place a ball (approximately 9-10 inches in diameter) under your chin and press it down. Do 25 reps of this exercise.
> Massage your chin! Massage can do wonders for your body. Not only does it relax the tension in the muscles, but also it helps with improving the blood circulation, reduces cellulite, and helps get a beautiful toned look of your body and skin. The same goes for your chin; massages can boost the circulation and improve the elasticity of the skin. You can massage on dry skin, or consider using some massage oil as well.
