The answer is naturally yes! In fact, facial yoga can help us fight some of the causes of the double chin. Let's see them together.
What are the causes of the double chin?
1. Loss of the muscle tone of the muscles of the sub -chin
The muscles of the under chin, like all the muscles of the human body, over the years tend to lose their tone and strength. This loss of tone determines the unsightly failure of the skin and a worsening of the image of the face and neck, men and women, especially in profile.
2. prolonged maintenance of incorrect postures
The prolonged use of phones, tablets, PC damages, in addition to the eyes, also the aesthetics of the neck and sub -chin. When we look at the electronic devices - but even when we read a book lying in bed - we tend to keep the object of our attention at the bottom and close to the body. This means that we look down, crushing the chin towards the chest and creating wrinkles and folds of the neck and chin.
An incorrect diet can determine an accumulation of fats in the more or less pronounced body. One of the areas of the body in which these fats are deposited is the area of the under chin. An accumulation of fat in this area only increases the double chin, worsening the aesthetic of the face and neck.
How can we intervene with face yoga?

Healthy foods are vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, legumes, wholemeal pasta and bread, rice cooked in a simple way, for example steam, seasoned with olive oil and a little salt. Proper nutrition does not mean deprivation or renunciation, it means eating healthy foods preferably and, from time to time, less healthy foods but which give us more satisfaction.
