But first, let’s address a question we receive often from women across America and around the world…

Do chin exercises REALLY work?

 

Exercises to Get Rid of a Double Chin: Do They Work?

Short answer: yes.

And that success comes down to the physiology of your face and chin.

Typically, a double chin is a result of accumulated fat (known as submental fat) around the platysma muscle. This muscle is a sheet of muscle that covers the base of your chin and the front of your neck, and when this area of your face builds up fat or weakens to allow your chin to be pulled downwards, a double chin is a result.

But enough science!

The reason why exercises to get rid of a double chin work is that they target this crucial area of your face and the surrounding fat, helping to stimulate movement and activate your platysma muscle.

The result? A more toned and refined appearance without chin rolls or saggy skin.

Double Chin Exercise #2 – The Jaw Push

Double Chin Exercise #4 – The Nose Touch

It’s easy to think a double chin needs to be targeted with chin exercises, but the interconnected nature of your face and neck make it much more complicated than that. In many instances, a double chin is the result of weakness in your hyoid muscles (located above the hyoid bone in your neck).
