Are you trying to lose weight and tone up but are finding that you still have a double chin despite your best efforts?
If so then the following easy to follow tips will help to reduce that double chin.
#1: Chew some sugar free gum
When you chew the gum you will be giving your facial muscles a good workout.
#2: Massage cocoa butter into your neck
If you rub a few teaspoons of cocoa butter on your neck you will be able to increase the elasticity of the skin and help reduce your double chin.
#3: Use wheat germ oil to massage
Just before bed rub wheat germ oil into your neck area to help tighten the skin.
#4: Make an egg white facial mask
Using a homemade egg white facial can help to eliminate your double chin. All you to do is:
- Use 2 eggs, a tablespoon of milk, peppermint essential oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and lemon juice.
- Mix together in a bowl
- Apply to your face
- Leave it to dry for 45 minutes
- Rinse off with lukewarm water
For best results you should use this mask once a day.
#5: Drink lots of water
To remove bloating and your double chin you should consider drinking more water.
Dehydration can cause bloating as your body will try desperately to retain as much of it as possible, with your face one of its more popular sources of storage.
If you are trying to lose weight then drinking more water is recommended anyway, especially as an alternative to those caffeinated soft drinks you would usually drink.
Remember water has zero calories, so you can drink it without any need to worry about excess calorie consumption.
It can also flush toxins from your body too, so as well as reducing your double chin, your skin will also be clearer too.
#6: Make a glycerin mask
To help reduce your double chin you could make your own homemade natural facial mask using one tablespoon of glycerin, half a tablespoon of bath salts and a couple of drops of rose water.
Mix together and apply to your neck, leave for around 15 minutes before washing off. You could do this three times a week for best results.
Final words of wisdom
If you want to lose your double chin then the above tips will certainly help, however you will not see the best results if you do not take steps to reduce your overall body fat percentage.
This means that your diet will need to be improved. Takeaways and junk food should be limited, instead your diet should consist of more home-cooked meals that are full of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as various fibre and protein-rich foods.
Your activity levels should also increase too. With 2-3 trips to the gym every week recommended.
With a little effort and commitment though you will soon start to see the benefits, both in your appearance and in your overall health.
