You don’t have to be an overweight person to have a double chin. A little weight gain can give you a double chin. If you want to know how to lose double chin, these simple exercises can help reduce its size and improve its appearance.
1. HEAD LIFT WORKOUT

- Tuck your chin and raise your head off the floor towards your chest while keeping your shoulders flat.
- Stay in this position for 10 seconds then rest for another 10 seconds.
- Repeat 5 times.
2. KISS THE CEILING

4. PLATYSMA EXERCISE
Platysma is the muscle that allows us to create and control our lower face expressions. Double chin appears when fat deposits accumulate in the platysma muscle area, causing the chin region to sag.
