Sagging Jowl Exercises

Many people, even your close friends and relatives may recommendfacelifts, cosmetic surgery, and expensive spa treatments in order to lift your sagging jowls. Do not get me wrong these procedures can be effective, but think of the pain you will undergo, the side effects, and how costly they are. The best way of lifting your jowls is by doing facialjowl exercisesas a natural way to improve the way you lookwithout costing you a single penny. Facial exercises have even been shown to help relieve facial paralysis by helping to lift the face muscles.

Exercises for the jowls

  • Tilt back your head so as to lift up your face. Stretch your lower jowl by extending it upwards and hold the position for 12 seconds. Go back to the starting position and repeat 3-4 times. This exercise will strengthen both your lower jawline and the neck.
  • Lie with your back on a bed and then throw back your head so that it hangs from the bed’s edge. Now lift your head and bring it to your chest. Slowly return to the start position and repeat for 5-6 reps.
  • Sit up straight in a chair and tilt back your head. Start chewing while keeping your lips pressed together. Make at least 25-30 chews. This is one of the easiest exercises and is one of the best jowl exercises that you can do.
  • Turn your head to the left and push out your lower jaw so that it looks like it is protruding. Hold for a count of 12 and repeat on the right side. This is an example of one of the best jowl exercises that also prevents the development of a double chin.
  • Press your lips together and widely smile so that it appears as if your cheeks want to touch your ears. Hold this stance for a minute and then repeat for an additional minute.
  • Put your palms around your neck as if strangling yourself, but do not squeeze. Try looking up-to the ceiling whilst firmly holding the neckline. Stop when you feel your neck is stretched.
