How To Do:

  • Place your thumb on one side of your jaw, underneath your jawbone and just before it turns upward toward the ear.
  • Place the same hand’s index finger in the same location on the opposite jaw.
  • While holding your hand still, push forward against your hand with your neck and head.
  • Hold this position for 30 seconds, then release your hand and move your neck back to the starting position.
  • That’s one rep. Complete three.

  • This is a great exercise that builds the muscles in your chin and can reduce a double chin without surgery.
  • Stand or sit in a relaxed position. Open your mouth as wide as you can and stick your tongue out as far as you can so that you feel your chin and neck tighten.
  • Hold your tongue out and count to 10. Relax and return to the starting position.
  • That’s one rep. Complete 10.

How To Do:

  • Lie face-up on your bed with your neck on the edge of the bed and let your head hang relaxed off of the side.
  • Contracting the muscles at the front of your neck, slowly lift and curl your head toward your chest as far as you can while keeping your shoulders flat on the bed.
  • Hold for 10 seconds, then, being careful not to let your head drop, slowly relax your neck to return your head to the starting position.
  • That’s one rep. Complete three sets of two reps each, sitting up between sets to prevent dizziness.
  • If you experience dizziness, take sitting breaks between each rep or perform the exercise on the floor with your neck in a straight line for the starting position.
