The 10 Best Exercises to Reduce a Double Chin


kiss ceiling

How To Do:

  • Standing tall with your arms hanging at your sides, tilt your head back so that you are looking at the ceiling.
  • Then try to kiss the ceiling by puckering your lips and extending them as far away from your face as possible.
  • You should feel a tightening throughout your neck and chin.
  • Hold for five seconds, then relax your lips and lower your chin to return to the starting position.
  • That’s one rep. Complete two sets of 15 reps each.


chin rotation

How To Do:

  • In a seated or standing position, elongate your spine for a tall, straight back.
  • Then, leading with your chin, slowly and gently rotate your head so it moves in a full circle from your shoulder to chest to shoulder to back. (If full circular rotations bother your neck, stick with semicircles moving from shoulder to shoulder.)
  • Make sure to keep your shoulders down and back throughout the movement.
  • That’s one rep. Complete 10. Repeat in the opposite direction.


side neck stretch

How To Do:

  • Sitting on the floor, place one hand on the floor, fingers down, about one foot away from your hip.
  • Do not lean or rest heavily on your fingertips. Wrap your opposite arm over the top of your head so that your palm rests on your opposite ear.
  • Keeping your head in alignment with your neck, bend your head toward your shoulder, using your palm to gently press down your head to your shoulder.
  • Then take your fingertips off the floor and place them on your upper arm, applying gentle pressure to press the shoulder down and away from your head.
  • Hold this position for 10 seconds. Release your hands, return to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side.
  • That’s one rep. Complete three.


jaw release

How To Do:

  • In a seated or standing position, elongate your spine for a tall, straight back.
  • Moving your jaws up and down like you are chewing and keeping your lips together, inhale deeply through your nose then slowly exhale while humming.
  • When you finish the exhale, open your mouth as wide as possible with the tip of your tongue gently pressed against the back of your bottom teeth.
  • Holding this position, inhale then exhale with an audible “ahhh” sound.
  • The entire move should take 90 seconds. That’s one rep. Complete two.
