A double chin is a problem that can surface whether you are thin, or you are fat! While weight gain may be a cause of your double chin, various other factors, such as looking down towards your mobile frequently, ageing, genetics, etc, can also be causes of this problem. Double chins can be extremely embarrassing. It can put you in an awkward position, especially when you are trying to take a selfie or get a picture taken.
Just like toning any other part of the body, toning and reducing the double chin requires exercise as well. The exercises that I highlight below, will help you to tone the muscles beneath your chin, and will help to reduce your double chin!

While you exhale, roll your head downwards so that it touches your chest. Gradually inhale, and roll your head to your left side, so that your chin is now parallel to the left shoulder.
2. Tongue Press (2 sets of 20 reps)
With your back straight, move your head back so that you are facing the ceiling. Press your tongue forcefully to the roof of your mouth, so that you feel the tightening of muscles below your chin.
