If you see a double chin in the mirror it may be a sign of weight gain or obesity, but that is not always the case.​
There is a few different factors a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with understanding ways to get rid of the double chin.
The skin can start to lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin.
Diet and weight
While weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can contribute to it. High-calorie and processed foods, and unhealthy fats may have an impact on weight gain and a double chin as well.
Genetics
Genes may play a key role in developing a double chin. Anyone with a family history of skin with low elasticity or double chins is more prone to its development.
Posture
Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the neck and chin. This may contribute to a double chin over time, as the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when the muscles are not used.
