We usually pay enough attention to our bodies when it comes to exercising, but we forget that our face muscles also need to work out as well.
And it’s not just about getting a defined jawline — an expert suggests that performing these exercises may help prevent neck pain, headaches, and jaw pain.
Here we have a few easy exercises for a defined chin and jawline which will definitely help you tone your muscles and give your jaw a more defined look.
1. The Saggin Chin Exercise
How to do it: Sit at a table and put your fists under your chin. Keep your elbows on the table. Slowly and gently try to open your mouth, still pushing your fists up, creating resistance. Hold for a little while and release. Repeat 10 times, and do 3 sets.
2. The Jawbone Restorer
How to do it: Place your thumbs below your chin side-by-side. Then lightly press your chin down, creating resistance and slowly slide your thumb along your jawline to your ears. Repeat 10 times.
3. The Chin-Up Exercise
How to do it: Close your mouth and slowly push your jaw forward, lifting your lower lip up. Feel how the muscles stretch. Stay in this position for about 10 seconds, and do the exercise again. Repeat the exercise 15 times.
4. The Vowel Sounds Exercise
How to do it: What you have to do is simply open your mouth as wide as possible, saying “O” and “E” sounds. Be sure to articulate the sounds and engage your muscles. Try not to touch or show your teeth. Repeat 3 sets of 15 reps.
5. The Collar Bone Backup Exercise
How to do it: Keep your head parallel to the floor, gently move it back to feel your muscles contract, and then return to the initial position. Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps. When you’re ready, you can try staying in this position longer.
