1. Head Raises
This exercise is one of the best exercises for reducing a double chin. For this, you need to lie flat on your back, bend your knees and place your feet flat on the floor. Keep your hands besides your body with your palms touching the floor. Look straight up towards the ceiling. Now, lift your head up and bend it towards your chest. Wait for a second and go back to the first position.
Repeat this activity at least 25 times a day for best results
2. Rotate Your Head
Simple yet effective, this exercise is also one of the best and easiest ways for reducing a double chin. For this, you need to sit in a straight position with your legs folded. Keep your back straight and place your hands on your thighs. Now, rotate your head slowly in a clockwise direction. Make sure that you stretch your head as much as you can, especially when you look upwards. For better results, you must practice this exercise in a clockwise as well as an anticlockwise manner.

3. Ceiling Kiss
To practice this exercise, you must sit upright on the floor with your legs folded and your hands placed on your thighs. Look straight in the front. Now, tilt your head upwards, toward the ceiling, and stretch it as much as you can. Remember that you should not stretch your body more than its capacity as it might cause pain and discomfort.
Once you have stretched your head in the upward direction, move your cheeks in such a manner as if you are trying to kiss the ceiling. The more intensely you try to kiss the ceiling, the more effective the exercise will be. Tighten your cheekbones and your chin as much as you can. Once you get there, freeze for 10 seconds and release.
