“Chin up” is a common expression when you’re not feeling great.
But when the cause of your frustration is an unsightly double chin, it’s hard to know what steps to take to get your confidence and self-esteem back.
Whether it’s the result of putting on a few extra pounds during your COVID-19 lockdown, or the natural sagging of skin where your lower jaw meets your neck, looking in the mirror and seeing a double chin is a frustration you could do without.
While a double chin is typically talked about in the same sentence as weight gain, you don’t actually have to be overweight to suffer from an unwanted double chin (we’ll explain why shortly). And thankfully, just because double chins are more common in 2021 doesn’t mean you have to live with one.
With Face Yoga and simple facial muscle relaxation exercises, you can help your body melt fat and tighten sagging skin in a matter of WEEKS. Because face building isn’t a practice exclusive to Hollywood movie stars with big cosmetic surgery budgets. In fact, you can use Face Yoga’s daily exercises to tighten facial muscles and sculpt a chin that looks incredible from every angle.
Read on to discover the cause of double chins, a highly unexpected trigger, and 3 simple Face Yoga exercises you can use to remove your double chin today.
What Causes Double Chins?
Before you start a daily Face Yoga routine, it helps to know what’s causing your double chin.
The main culprits tend to come down to three different factors. We’ll share two of those with you now, both of which are pretty common knowledge…
- Excess Fat
When the area underneath your chin (known as your ‘submental space’) holds an excess amount of body fat then a double chin may result. Age is also a contributing factor as skin loses its elasticity over time which causes sagging and the appearance of a double chin.
But there’s a third cause of double chins that might just shock you…
The Technology You Use Every Day Is Giving You a Double Chin!!!
Believe it or not, but you may be guilty of the third contributing factor right now…
That’s right. It’s technology.
We spend so much time looking down at phone screens, laptops, and iPads that the elasticity of the neckline is affected. Spending hours every day looking down, whether it’s for work or in your spare time, keeps the skin of your neck and chin from staying taut, and leaves your neckline to drop and droop over time.
In short, it doesn’t matter if you watch your weight and you’ve got your whole life ahead of you. Every day you spend looking down at screens, your risk of a double chin goes up.
