A person can safely go through life with a double chin. However, once it threatens to turn into obesity, then it’s a different matter altogether.

At any rate, if you are intent on losing your double chin for appearance sakes, congratulations! You are in the right direction and there is nothing wrong with wanting to look better.

Depending on your age, double chin can happen as a matte of course. In other words, the older you get, the more inclined your skin is to lose tightness and strength. This is why we end up with sagging cheeks, upper arms, chin, and breasts. To avoid getting the brunt of an aging body, you could try these tips for losing a double chin, and anything else that seems to fall victim to the aging phenomena.

Avoid Crash Diets

This is a big no-no. Crash diets, if they work, will leave you with early signs of aging, even at the age of 25 to 30. You will look haggard, fatigued, lethargic, and worst of all, start seeing sagging skin, including a double chin.

Avoid Fatty Foods

This really does not need an explanation.

Chin Up and Improve Your Posture

Keeping your chin close to your body is not exercising it, even in the most minimal way. Lift your chin and stretch your neck, show off your shoulders and don’t be scared to look upward. By doing so you stretch your muscles and strengthen them, thereby improving its elasticity. It will also make you look taller, and minimize the appearance of a double chin.

Massage Your Neck and Beneath Your Chin

In fact, massage your double chin in an upward motion. You can use essential oils, cold cream, or a lotion. It’s a matter of personal choice. The important part is stretching it upwards.

You could also try growing your hair and having a stylist put some fringes to frame your face. Then, add some drama to your face with the use of make-up. Find you best feature and enhance it so people look at that, and fail to see the double chin.
