There are also surgical procedures that can eliminate a double chin but they can be out of our budget.
The extra layer of fatty tissue under our chins is most often caused by being overweight. Sagging skin under the chin can also occur as we age and our skin loses elasticity. For a few, it can be genetic.

Loosen the jaw by gently opening and closing your mouth.
