Eating right and being active are some examples of good habits that can help your body stay fit and young. But this is also true for facial muscles, which tend to lose their firmness as we age.
With that in mind, we compiled a list of the best exercises designed to help your face return to its former glory.
How To Get Rid Of Double Chin
Warming Up The Muscles
As before with any other workout, you will want to warm up your facial muscles.
To do this, move your lower jaw back and forth and then sideways. All movements should be done slowly and smoothly, without sudden jerks.
Repeat the exercise 8 to 10 times.
6. The Scoop
Open your mouth and roll your lower lip over your lower teeth. Imagine that you need to scoop water with your jaw. Move your head down with a scooping motion and close your mouth as you lift your head.
When performing this exercise, make sure that the corners of your lips are completely relaxed. Repeat 5-7 times.
5. Touch Your Nose
The double chin is also associated with the weakness of the hyoid muscles. That is why it is also necessary to strengthen them.
Extend your tongue as far as you can and try to reach your nose with the tip of your tongue. Keep your lips relaxed. Repeat 5 times.
4. The Perfect Oval Face
If you want to make your face look younger and lift your cheeks, do the following exercise: turn your head to the left and pull your jaw forward, straining your neck muscles.
You should feel the muscles on the left of your neck stretch. Then turn your head to the right and do the same movement. Repeat 5 times on each side.
3. “Kiss the Giraffe”
imagine you need to kiss a giraffe (or someone who is very tall).
Raise your face and look at the ceiling. Bring your lower jaw slightly forward and purse your lips as if you were going to kiss someone.
If you are doing the exercise correctly, you should feel a strong tension in your neck. Hold for 5 to 8 seconds and release. Repeat 5 times.
For this exercise, you need to make two fists and place them directly under your chin.
Then begin moving your jaw slightly down on your fists, and strain your muscles while overcoming the resistance.
The pressure force should increase gradually. When you reach maximum resistance, hold for 3 seconds. Then relax and repeat the exercise 5 to 7 times.
Clench your teeth with your mouth closed and try to stretch the corners of your lips as far as possible.
Now push your tongue against the hard palate, gradually increasing the pressure force.
If you feel a strong tension in the chin muscles, it means that you have performed the exercise correctly.
Maintain that feeling of tension for 5 seconds and then relax for 3 seconds. Repeat 5-8 times.
