Working Out the Platysma

Platysma is the muscle which starts from your jaw and runs down till the neck. Put your neck straight and tighten your tendons inside the jaw by pulling the lips over teeth and turning the corners of the mouth downward. Stay in this position for 10 seconds and repeat it 10 times.

Chewing Gum

This is the easiest of all exercises and needs no special time or attention. Just chew a gum and this would make your jaw muscles strong and reduce the double chin. Make sure that the gum you are chewing is sugar-free.

Chin Lifts

When you lift your chin upwards, it strengthens and tightens the muscles of the face and neck. Stand up straight and raise your chin towards the ceiling. Tuck your lips towards the ceiling and hold it like this till a count of 10. Repeat this 10 times.

Exercise the Whole Body

When you exercise the whole body the eventual weight loss will lead to shedding of the facial fat also. Perform general cardio exercises like running, swimming, and cycling which can make the face thinner.
