Look younger and thinner by doing these facial exercises! Facial exercises help tone your facial and neck muscles, bringing out your best features and enhancing your jawline. They also help improve your blood and oxygen circulation, bringing more wrinkle-busting nutrients to your face, and giving your face a natural, radiant glow.
These facial exercises are very easy to do and take just a few minutes a day. You can even do these while sitting in traffic, or waiting for the washing machine to finish its spin cycle.
Benefits of facial exercises
Facial exercises can help firm up your cheeks (enhancing your sexy cheekbones, and making you look years younger!) They can also minimize eye bags by ‘toning’ your upper eyelids. They can also reduce crow’s feet and brow lines, make your lips look plumper, and lift up the corners of your mouth. Facial exercises can also help reduce a double chin!
Facial exercises are safer and cheaper than surgical procedures. Combined with a proper diet and your favorite beauty products, they can make you look more beautiful, naturally!
Facial exercise # 1: Tighten your jowls
Imagine a line running from the corner of your outer nostrils to the corner of your mouth. Put your fingertips on top of this line. Then make a really wide smile.
Now, gently push your fingertips, applying pressure on the folds. Maintain the pressure for five seconds, release, then apply again! This facial exercise is considered a ‘resistance exercise.’ Do this 30 times.
Facial exercise # 2: Tighten your neck and cheeks
This facial exercise firms your cheeks, chin and neck and is so subtle that you can do it in your office cubicle or while waiting in line at banks or doctor’s clinics!
Tilt your neck backwards, so you are looking up at the ceiling. Then, press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth. Then, swallow. Next, bend your neck to the left. Press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth again, and swallow. Bend your neck to the right, and press your tongue and swallow once more. Do this four times.
Facial exercise # 3: tighten your eye muscles
This facial exercise takes a bit of getting used to, but it’s a lot easier than getting botox injections! The trick is to keep your brow area relaxed and unfurrowed. Then, widen your eyes in surprise—like you just saw aliens land in front of you. Keep your eyes straight, focusing on that single point for about 10 seconds.
