Double Chin

A fold of fat that some people have under their chin and that looks like a second chin

Just as you get your eye and hair color from your family, your double chin may also be the result of genetics. If your family members have a double chin, this enhances* the probability of you receiving one, as well. Genetics will often affect the water retention rate, as well as your body’s fat storage, which are two factors attributed to double chins. Eating habits also play a role in the development of a double chin.
A double chin may also be the consequence of the natural aging process. It is normal for your skin to loosen and to lose* muscles as you age. Your chin also has muscles present, which can slacken and add to the risk of developing a double chin.
Excess Weight
One of the most common causes of a double chin is excess weight or body fat. If you are obese or even overweight, then you should expect to develop a double chin. However, even if you are not overweight, you may still be at risk to develop this double chin.

1. Sugar Free Gum
To get rid of a double chin, it is essential to keep your facial muscles toned and give the muscles in your jaw line a workout.
Simply chew sugarless gum several times a day to reduce your double chin as quickly as possible.
2. Cocoa Butter
When cocoa butter is used regularly, it will improve the elasticity of your skin and help get rid of your double chin.
Slightly warm a few tablespoons of cocoa butter in the microwave.
Gently massage it into your neck and double chin for several minutes.
Do this twice a day, before taking a bath in the morning and every night before going to bed.
3. Wheat Germ Oil
Regular neck massage with wheat germ oil is another effective way to get rid of a double chin.
Before going to bed, rub some wheat germ oil gently around the chin area.
Gently massage upwards from the bottom of the neck to the chin for 10 to 15 minutes.
Leave the oil on your skin overnight.
Repeat regularly to soon notice improvement in the appearance of your double chin.
4. Egg Whites
An egg white mask can be of great help in getting rid of a double chin because it has a skin tightening effect. Egg whites are also good for the overall health of the skin.
Whisk together two egg whites, one tablespoon each of milk, honey and lemon juice.
Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil.
Apply this mask to the skin around your chin and neck area.
Leave it on for 30 minutes.
Rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat dry your skin.
Do this once daily for quick results.
5. Glycerin
You can also make a natural mask with glycerin to get rid of a double chin.
Make a mask by mixing one tablespoon of glycerin, one-half tablespoon of Epsom salt and a few drops of peppermint oil.
Use a cotton pad to apply it on the neck and chin area.
Leave it on for several minutes so that it absorbs into the skin.
Wash the area thoroughly with cool water.
Do this three to five times a week to get positive results.
