The art of double chins: mastering the folds

Step 1: Locate any sort of picture-taking device, preferably a personal electronic. The smaller the size, the easier it is to achieve optimal results.

Step 2: Place your handheld device approximately six inches below your collarbone so it’s sitting on it’s side, landscape way. Front camera (or “selfie” camera) is preferred but not required.


Step 3: Attempt to sink your chin into your body. It should descend as if you were laying down, looking straight up at the sky and a house were to fall flat on your face. If you begin to feel like a pudding pouch is developing below your chin you are doing it correctly.

Step 4: Snap the picture. Warning: most likely, you will not be able to look directly at the camera, so the best course of action is to look straight up and trust you will find the camera button. If you don’t get it the first time, be patient. Taking a double-chin selfie is an art. The odds are you aren’t a prodigy. Mastery takes time and dedication.


Step 5: Check the picture to see if you have the desired results. If not, repeat steps one through five until you have acquired the effect you want.



*Sitting down and leaning back before positioning yourself can add to the general aesthetic desired.

*For a surplus of options, opt to take more than one picture before repositioning yourself.

*If you cannot laugh at yourself or judge others for taking a double-chin selfie then you shall not be permitted to take one.
