Double chins are a bane of life for those who love to get themselves clicked. Some have faced this trouble all their life while others may have recently started noticing the sagging chin under the actual one. For those who have struggled with weight issues for a long time, double chin reduction is an easy way to solve the problem. The treatment is easy and highly efficient. If age is the reason for the double chin to sprout then, www.livestrong.com/ recommends simple exercises to face the issue head on.
The aim is to try a natural method first to remove the second chin before going in for a cosmetic procedure. Therefore, we bring to you three easy exercises that can be done at any time of the day. You can do them while sitting or standing and within a few days you will see a drastic change in your profile. The first set is called The O. For this exercise, you need to sit down while keeping the back straight. The shoulders should be down. Begin to tilt your head until you are looking at the ceiling. Your lips are in a closed, relaxed position. Now move your mouth to form an O, the lips should be closed. If you feel muscles contracting on the sides of the neck and the jaw, then you are in the correct position. After holding the pose for 20 seconds, relax the mouth and lower your chin. Repeat this entire rep ten times. Take a breather and then do another set of 10 reps.
The next set is called tongue press. Again, look at the ceiling while sitting down with shoulders down and back straight. Push the tongue to the roof of the mouth while keeping it flat. Now slowly lower your chin. Remember the tongue should be touching the roof the entire time. Press as low as possible and comfortable for you. If you feel a contraction in the chin and front side of the neck, you are holding the correct pose. Relax the tongue and go back to the starting position. Do this rep for twenty times. Take a breather and then do another set of 20 reps.
The last exercise, called kiss the ceiling, should be done standing with arms loose at the sides. Look at the roof by tilting the head back. Pucker your lips by extending them as for as possible for you like you are kissing the ceiling. Remain in this pose for 5 secs. Relax and bring the chin back to normal position. Repeat this rep for fifteen times. Take a breather and then do another set. The contraction in this exercise is felt all over the neck and chin.
A tip before starting this double chin exercise regime is to begin slowly. There is no need to complete all the sets or repetitions from day one. Do only 5 reps, if that is the most comfortable. With time increase the reps, then increase the number of sets. Always remember to breathe while doing the exercises.
