What Is a Double Chin?

A double chin is a thick layer of skin or fat that lays between your chin and your neck. By moving your head or by tucking it, you can reveal those pesky chins in your neck.

A double chin is not always a result of weight gain. Some people are born with a weaker chin and jawline, while some are naturally gifted with a sharp chin and jawline.

For those with naturally weaker chins, you might not benefit from double chin exercises. But, a cosmetic surgeon might have great options for you.

For those that grew their double chin over the years, continue reading.

Diet and exercise. That's the quick, science-backed answer.


Unless you have a meeting with a dermatology clinic or a surgeon, a healthy diet and an active lifestyle can help you build a stronger jaw.

When you gain weight, your body spreads the fat throughout your entire body. Some are more likely to gain weight around the face, while some may gain more fat around their belly.

In the same manner, your body burns fat in random parts of your body. Unfortunately, no evidence shows that you can target areas where you want to burn fat.

So far, the best way to lose double chins without undergoing a procedure is by losing total body fat.

However, there's no harm in exploring some other options like double chin exercises.

9 Double Chin Exercises

Some procedures at the doctor's office may help sculpt your jawline even without a diet or exercise:

One clinical trial suggests that facial yoga may help keep the skin in your face firm. However, the evidence is limited.

Daily habits may also help keep your chin singular:

  • Facial massages may promote lymphatic drainage, and help your face—and chin—swell down.
  • Perform neck and jaw muscles when you can. Strengthening these muscles may lead to a stronger, more defined jawline.
  • Use facial massage tools like gua shas or facial massagers, which many users claim tighten their skin. Massage your skin in upward motions, fighting gravity and preventing your skin from sagging.
  • Massage your face as you apply your skincare. When you apply slippery creams and gels, throw in a massage as well. Dot the product on your face, then spread and massage in upwards motions.

Followers and proponents of double chin exercises claim that these are the best ways to burn fat straight from your chin. However, again, no evidence suggests that you can burn fat in specific areas.
