These Chin Exercises Will Help You Get Rid Of That Double Chin!

If you have, or know someone who has a double chin, you might know the feeling of insecurity that it can bring. You have to aim your selfies higher than usual, just so it won’t look that awkward.  Double chins are caused by 1 of 3 things (or maybe 2) – genetics, age, and weight gain.

The most common of the 3 is weight gain. Did you know that your face and neck are the first places your body stores excess fat?

You can’t change genetics, but you certainly can do something to exercise that double chin off!
