Obesity is not a disease but a problem of our generation. Apart from some people who develop an obese body due to medical complications, mostly this condition occurs because we start ignoring our bodies. A bad lifestyle with poor eating habits and sleep hygiene plus leads of stress makes the body lethargic and more prone to store unhealthy fat. Fat can get deposited on any part of the body. In most cases, it is found around the stomach, waist, thigh and hips. But in some cases, you start noticing that your jawline has become plump and a double chin has started appearing a well. Women are more likely to have a double chin which not only impacts their looks but also makes them look twice their age. While an increase in weight is considered to be responsible for a double chin, but it’s not the only reason behind it. Genetic reasons, irregular routine, the wrong posture and weak muscles of the neck can also cause a double chin. To find out some simple remedies to get rid of this problem, Her Zindagi talked to Ayurvedic Expert Dr Durga Arod (RMO) of the Swami Parmanand Natyavikalaya Yoga and Research Center and here are some insights.

Exercising the facial muscles is the best way to get rid of that irritating double chin. This helps to stretch and tone your face, neck and jawline. To begin with, stand up and look straight. Now raise your chin up to look towards the ceiling. After a few seconds, return to your position. Repeat this action at least 15-20 times. In the second exercise, keep the spinal cord straight and move your head clockwise and anti-clockwise. Do this 5-10 times. In addition, take out the tongue completely and count up to ten or close the mouth properly and touch the palate above the tongue 5-7 times.

Reduce Overall Weight

If you are overweight then first try to reduce it. Because the weight you lose will decrease the fat on your face accordingly. For this, eat foods with low fat and carbohydrate and include exercises in your routine.

Chew Away The Fat
