    Chewing Gum

    This is the easiest of all exercises and needs no special time or attention. Just chew a gum and this would make your jaw muscles strong and reduce the double chin. Make sure that the gum you are chewing is sugar-free.

    Exercise the Whole Body

    When you exercise the whole body the eventual weight loss will lead to shedding of the facial fat also. Perform general cardio exercises like running, swimming, and cycling which can make the face thinner.
