Let Your Tongue Tone the Chin Area

Do a couple of sets, each one consisting of 20 repetitions. Remember to keep your back straight at all times.
Pout Your Way to a Toner and Lovelier Chin
It is said that pouting causes you to use more facial muscles. That is why this glum expression can come in handy when you’re trying to make that double chin go away. Stick out your lower lip and pout like you’ve never pouted before. This should cause the muscles in the chin and jaw area to tighten. Lower your chin as closely to your chest as possible. Hold for a few seconds, then go back to the starting position and relax. Do 2 sets of this, with each set consisting of 20 reps.
Kiss Away That Unattractive Double Chin

Do 2 sets of this kissing exercise. Each set consists of 15 repetitions.
