A double chin also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat accumulates below your chin. Although it is usually associated with weight gain, you do not have to be overweight to have one.
There are a few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with knowing more ways to get rid of the double chin itself. It is a sad fact that double chins only look good for toddlers and not amongst the older age group.
Factors that influence the development of a double chin include:
- Age – The skin loses its elasticity as we age which can lead to the development of extra or saggy skin that creates the appearance of a pocket of fat at the neck.
- Diet and Weight – While weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can certainly contribute to it. A diet high in calories, processed food, and unhealthy fats can cause weight gain and a double chin.
- Genetics – Genes may play a role in individuals developing a double chin. Someone with a family history of skin of poor elasticity or double chins might be more likely to develop one themselves.
- Posture – Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the nec and chin. This may contribute to a double chin over time as the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when the muscles are not used.
