How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

1 of 3

We’ve all tried tricks to hide a double chin—wearing a high-neck top or scarf and tilting our heads just right when our photo is taken.

There’s no denying it. The extra layer of fatty tissue under our chins is most often caused by being overweight. Sagging skin under the chin can also occur as we age and our skin loses elasticity. For a few, it can be genetic.

While there are surgical procedures that can eliminate a double chin, they can be expensive. There are many simple home treatment options to get rid of a double chin that are pocket-friendly and painless.

Needless to say, you also need to reduce excess weight with proper diet and exercise.

  4. Some of the worst advice ever! Do not microwave anything! It kills all health benefits, nutrients and turns it to poison. Literally changes the natural structure of anything microwaved. For instance if you microwave water and give it to plants they die!

    Also, milk is not good for you. It’s loaded with puss, GMO hormones, steroids, anti-biotics, poisons from the dairy and farming industries, etc. Cow’s milk is literally one of the worst things that you can put in or on your body, it robs you of calcium (does not provide it), animal based proteins are what cancer cells feed on therefore causes cancer both via the animal based proteins and the cancer causing contaminants listed above. Not to mention dairy cows are fed a steady GMO diet and have extreme levels of pesticides and herbicides in their systems and milk like cancer causing glyphosphate the main ingredient in Monsanto’s roundup known to be one of the leading causes of cancer in the world for over 30 years!!!

  5. Anthony Spear: so you’re saying that water from microwave I.e. hot water will make plants live?

    And what you are referring to about milk is inorganic stuff. That only happens in US, rest of the world are normal, only consume organic food for themselves and their livestock.

  6. Very helpful remedies and exercises for double chin reduction. These remedies and exercises will work well if the proper diet is maintained since healthy diet play a vital role in it. The treatments using Ion Magnum technology and nano perfector will be effective if anyone wants to opt for non surgical face slimming treatments.

  7. Can you refrigerate and reuse that egg white mask? This is in relation to remedy number 4. Or do I have to make a fresh one daily? I want to try doing this for a month and to see what happens.
