Let’s face it: nobody wants to see double, especially in the face area. The most obvious cause of a double chin would be excess weight. However, loose skin that occurs with age can also cause a double chin-like appearance.
So just what can you to combat a dreaded double chin? Check out these five effective options.
1. Weight Loss
There’s a reason weight loss is first on our list. Weight loss can help to alleviate a double chin -- and improve your health too.
Let’s start with a little motivation. Did you know that losing just five to 10 percent of your weight can have enormous health benefits? That’s one heck of a weight loss motivator.
According to the Obesity Action Coalition, achieving this goal can both increase “good” cholesterol and decrease “bad” cholesterol. In addition, weight loss can decrease blood pressure. Plus it can help to prevent against both diabetes and prediabetes.
And of course you’ll see physical effects, like a diminishing double chin. So go ahead, lose a few pounds. Your selfies will be better than ever.
