Chubby cheeks may be adorable on kids, but it’s a different scenario when it comes to adults. Here are few remedies and simple exercises that will help you lose the double chin.
1. Wheat Germ Oil
Apply some wheat germ oil to the jaw in an upward direction, massage for 5-10 minutes and leave it on overnight. Do this once a day.
2. Egg White
You Will Need:
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of milk
Separate the egg white from the yolk. Add a tablespoon of each honey, milk, and lemon juice to the bowl with the egg white and whisk. Apply the mixture on your jaw and leave it on for half an hour before you wash it off.
Massaging improves blood circulation and will help you get rid of the excess fat deposit. It’s best to massage with oil.
4. Green Tea
You Will Need:
- 1 teaspoon of green tea

Take a cup of hot water and add a teaspoon of green tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes and strain. Finally, add the honey. It’s best to consume the tea immediately.
5. Olive Oil
Heat some olive oil lightly and massage it on your skin and neck. Leave it on overnight.
6. Oil Pulling
Swish a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 10 -12 minutes. Spit out the oil afterwards and make sure you don’t swallow any of it. It’s best to do this every morning before brushing.
7. Vitamin E
Extract the oil from 3 vitamin E capsules and apply it on the jaw and upper neck. Massage for several minutes and leave it on overnight.
8. Chewing Gum
Chewing some gum will act as an exercise that can help burn the fat on the chin and the face.
You Will Need:
- Cotton pads
- ½ cup of cut melons
Blend half a cup of cut melons with water and apply the mixture on the jaw and neck with a cotton pad.
10. Cocoa Butter
