Double chin is nothing but the extra layer of fat that gets deposited below your chin. A double chin can be a result of various disorders and hormones imbalances. One of the main causes of the appearance of double chin is due to obesity. The fat gets deposited under your chin eventually stretching your skin.
Other than obesity, some other factors that influence the deposition of fat below your chin include genetic factors and rarely, hormonal imbalances. I’m sure you’ve met people who are healthy and physically fit yet sport a double chin. This is mainly because of their genes. Double chin is either hereditary or a result of a disorder.
Having a double chin can undoubtedly make you feel insecure about yourself and even lower your self-esteem. Therefore, it is important to know that not every double chin is harmful or can be reduced. The hereditary ones are difficult to get rid of. In some cases, it is almost impossible to let go of your hereditary-double chin. Moreover, one must learn to feel comfortable in their own bodies irrespective of their skin and weight.
However, if you’re trying to lose that extra fat and flaunt a jawline, here are some simple ways to succeed in losing your double chin:
