Exercises For Your Face
Let’s get straight to the exercises that can give you a youthful and toned facial skin in just a matter of weeks.
1. Pucker Up, Girl
This is the best exercise to tone and firm your muscles, especially around your lips. Pucker up your lips and vibrate them to produce sound similar to that of a motorboat. You can stop when your mouth starts feeling tingly.
2. Stick Your Tongue Out
Relieve the tension and revive your facial muscles by sticking your tongue out. Protrude your tongue out towards your chin while keeping your eyes wide open, looking slightly upwards. Squeeze the muscles at the front side of your throat. Roar your loudest while you exhale. Repeat this three times and relax your tongue. Repeat the exercise.
3. Smooth Over Those Crease Lines
This pose allow you realize that all those unintentional brow movements have created lines on your forehead. Curl the index fingers and thumbs of both the hands to form “C” and then, place the curled index finger on your eyebrows.
Let your thumbs press your cheeks at the same time. Press your fingers downwards and outwards while opening your eyes as wide open as possible. Make sure to press your brows down to prevent creasing on your forehead. Close your eyes. Repeat this exercise two times.
4. Tone Up Your Cheeks
This exercise can effectively work on the muscles in your cheek area to reduce appearance of fine lines and expression lines. Take a deep breath and puff up your cheeks to tone your facial skin. Move the air inside your mouth breath from one cheek to other until no air is left in your mouth.
5. Reduce Your Slacking Chin
Technology might have given you a double chin and a tech neck, but you can still redefine your jaw. Turn your head in the right direction and tilt your chin upwards, towards the ceiling. Press the tip of your tongue on your mouth’s roof, smile and then swallow. Hold to this position for a couple of seconds. Repeat the whole exercise 10 times on both the sides as well as on the middle of your mouth for best results.
