Exercises to Firm your Double Chin

This post is to answer Sonu’s question that she asked in the comments HERE. You know stars with super toned and accentuated jaw line make billions of dollars. Check out the jaw line of Agyness Deyn and Victoria Beckham. These two celebs are said to have one of the best jaw lines.

Huhh! People become icons by selling their stupendous cheek bones, jaw lines, abs, hair cuts and what not *I wonder* Show bizz it is!

There can be many reasons for double chin. It can be due to obesity, age or to genetic reasons. There is no denying the fact that a toned up jaw line with properly modulated throat and cheek muscles add million stars to the beauty of the face. Mostly, weight loss helps with the removal of excess fat around the chin also but, there are so many people who are not fat otherwise yet they have double chin. You know honestly, the more the weight on the face or body, the more is the downward gravitational force that we experience. Hence the more saggy and baggy our skin looks. The best anti aeging thing is having a taught skin for that fat loss is important.

So the best way to lose the double chin can be achieved by 3 things.

1. Lose Fat to reduce the gravitational force on the skin

2. Meditate and stay calm.

We have around 50 facial muscles. These muscles are shaped up as per our state of mind or thoughts. For example If we are frustrated then we will look also frustrated :P . There is a huge science called face reading (Physiognomy) which is based on a somewhat similar philosophy. I recently talked with someone, who specializes in face reading and I was bowled over with the acuteness of this science. Will try to explore it and share a few things.

Ahem ok! so the point is give time to relax your facial muscles. Once you release all the mental tension, the facial tension will also be obliterated, giving way to enormous glow :) Ask your mind to keep calm and meditate :D . It will make a huge difference. *Meri gurantee varna paise wapas* :D

3. Exercise your jawline and throat muscles to shape up the muscles.

Following are some do while sitting at your desk exercises to Firm your Double Chin

Ohh! I forgot, most of the times sagging of chin and throat muscles, is due to improper posture. Take care of your posture all time. Improving your posture is the first step towards improving your level of fitness.

Repeat it 5-10 times in one go.

3. Jaw Release

Singhasana is the best asana for improving the definition of cheek bones and jaw line. This asana got very famous recently after kareena’s yoga teacher told in media that kareena’s sexy pout is the result of this asana :)

Make sure to keep your spine erect when you do this. In the video it is done in a very soft way. You can chose to roar like a lion :)
