Many of us are self conscious about having a double chin. Do you ever catch yourself from certain angles or notice a double chin in photos of yourself? If so, you’re not alone and there are actually a few exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles under your neck and get rid of your double chin.

1. Tongue-To-Nose

This exercise may seem silly, but sticking out your tongue and trying to touch your nose with it is a great way to strengthen your neck muscles. If you place your hand under your neck, you’ll be able to feel your muscles working.

2. Jaw Stretches

Another great way to work your neck muscles is to turn your head to the left side and extend your jaw outwards a few times. Then, turn your head to the right and repeat.

3. Kiss

Stand up and tilt your head towards the ceiling. Raise your eyes to the ceiling, then make a puckering kiss motion with your lips and hold the position for about five seconds. Then, relax. Try to repeat this exercise 10 times.

4. Neck Roll

Stand up, then tilt your head so that your chin is close to your chest. Hold this position for five seconds, then tilt your head to the left. After five seconds, tilt your head back in towards your chest. After five more seconds, tilt your head to the right. Repeat this process three more times.
