A health practitioner named Krista Griffin has shared in a video the three reasons why you may have a double chin.
Plus, she shared how to get rid of it without having to spend hours at the gym.
First, Griffin explained that your tongue’s positioning may play a role in your double chin.
She said: “Your tongue should be resting on the roof of your mouth.
“And if it’s not, this will affect the shape and posture of your entire neck and face.”
EXCESSIVE TENSION IN FACE AND NECK MUSCLES
Griffin said too much tension in your face muscles, specifically your SCM and hyoid, could be causing your double chin.
To help rid the tension, Griffin advised massaging your muscles.
She said your hyoid muscles are right underneath your chin and you can gently grab them to massage them out.
Meanwhile, your SCM muscles are located on the front of your neck.
In another video, Griffin explained how to massage those muscles.
She said: “First you’re just going to grab the muscles on both sides and pull gently outwards and massage in circles going from your ear all the way down.”
POOR LYMPHATIC FLOW
Lastly, poor lymphatic flow through your neck and jaw could also be the culprit behind your double chin.
“That will allow fluid to get stuck and stay under the chin, which will create the appearance of a double chin,” Griffin added.
In a separate video, Griffin explained how to do lymphatic drainage at home for your face and neck.
First, you’ll want to stimulate above your collarbones by making circles, then stroke down your neck on both sides.
Then, you’ll stimulate below your jaw and ears by making small circles followed by massaging your jawline.
Next, make small circles beside your nose then stroke across your cheekbones toward your ears.
Finally, stroke above your eyebrows and move down towards your ears.
With regular lymphatic drainage, the appearance of your double chin should fade away over time.
