Goodbye Double Chin!

Yoga for perfect jawline: A double chin is an ungainly

accumulation of fat formed as a layer under the chin. Because this layer

of fat sits right under the chin it causes its appearance to look like that of a second which is commonly known as the double chin. Genetics or hereditary reasons are one of the causes for people to develop a double chin.

If you have a double chin then maybe you can check in your family tree if anybody from your parent's side of the family had a double chin. Being overweight can also lead to the development of a double chin. If you want to lose your double chin and have a sculpted jawline then here are some of the ways that you can get rid of the double chin.
