  4. Age: A double chin can also be caused by saggy or loose skin due to aging.

2. Cocoa Butter
Apply cocoa butter regularly on the underside of your chin. This enables the skin tissues to regain elasticity and firm the tissues. This, in turn, tightens the skin under your chin pressing any small excess fat upside.

Slightly warm a small amount of cocoa butter and massage over the area twice a day.

The best time to do this before taking a bath in the morning or before going to bed at night.

3. Wheat Germ Oil
A lot of people reported massaging the neck with wheat germ oil to be useful in dramatically reducing the bulge of a double chin. The oil is rich in Vitamin E that your skin needs to maintain the required elasticity.

Gently massage your chin area with wheat germ oil. Start from the bottom of your neck and go up. Leave the oil applied overnight. Wash off in the morning.

Repeat this every day for a couple of days and see the difference.

4. Egg Whites
You might have already heard about the egg white and honey mask to fade wrinkles. The same skin tightening ability of egg white goes good for double chin. Add half a tablespoon of honey to egg white, also add a small amount of peppermint.  Apply the paste on the chin area, let it stay for 20-30 minutes before you rinse it off.
