FACT CHECKED BY Alexa Mellardo

Besides losing belly fat, a major fitness goal that many people have is to lose fat around their face, particularly their chin. In order to lose fat, you need to focus on the basics, including weight training, getting in aerobic exercise, and eating a healthy diet. Luckily, when it comes to losing fat, the face is where it usually goes first. But the problem for some people is that once their face has slimmed down, they are left with sagging skin. So we've rounded up a few of the best exercises to get rid of sagging skin under your chin, which we'll get into below.

Although performing strength training and doing regular cardio is an important part of your fitness program, you should also consider incorporating facial exercises as well to work on the skin area. Facial exercises can improve blood flow and circulation to your jawline and may improve the sagging skin under your chin for a more youthful appearance.

While keeping your face straight with your chest tall, place your finger right underneath your chin. Pull your chin and head straight back, and then down into your finger. Hold the position for at least 5 seconds, then return to the starting position. Repeat for at least 10 reps per set. The great thing about this exercise is you can do it continuously throughout the day.
