A double chin is the unsightly buildup of fat under the chin that forms a layer. As we age, the muscles under the chin and neck area become loose, and the skin on top starts to sag, thus creating an illusion of a double chin. This layer of fat sits directly beneath the chin and gives the appearance of a second chin, known as the double chin. One of the factors that contribute to the development of a double chin is genetics or hereditary factors. If you have a double chin, look through your family tree to see if anyone on your parent’s side of the family has one. Once you know, it is time to concentrate on how to get rid of the double chin.

Does face yoga really work? Is there evidence?
Face yoga is a lifestyle change, it’s the amalgamation of facial cardio, facial stretching, and face yoga poses followed by a systematic breath workout to cool down these facial muscles. Personally, I must have helped over 30,000+ faces change naturally, non-invasive with a short 5-minute home routine.
