Face Exercises – How To Prevent And Get Rid Of A Double Chin?


Are there face exercises for a double chin?

Yes … luckily.

Double chin is a pretty common problem. It creeps up quietly on us.

You barely notice it in the beginning.

First, the chin just seems to have blended in with the neck.

And then, the flat under-chin area develops the flab. You notice a “second” chin.

How did that happen?

Well, double chins can develop overtime.

Here are a few possible causes:
1. Hereditary
2. Fluid retention
3. Weight problem
4. Dietary choices

There are numerous face exercises that target double chin.

Here is one simple face exercise that I like.

This face exercise works the following muscles:

Mentalis
The mentalis is a face muscle located at about the most pronounced part of the chin on each side of the face.

Platysma
The platysma is a thin sheet of muscle positioned between the collar bone and the jaw, whose action is to depress the jaw.

Sternomastoid
Another name for sternomastoid is sternocleidomastoid.
This is one of two muscles located on the front of the neck which serve to turn the head from side to side.

Masseter
The masseter is a face muscle located in the cheek area on each side of the face.

1. Stretch out your neck as far behind as it will go.

2. Open and close your mouth slowly.

4. Feel the tension build up in the muscles of the neck and lower chin.

3. Repeat this exercise 10 times.

Note:

Tilting the head backwards can be rather uncomfortable.

Here’s what I do to make this exercise easier.

a) Remain seated during the exercise.

b) Support your head with your hands placed behind the head.

c) Close your eyes during the exercise.


The above face exercise works for double chin and also helps to tone sagging jowls.

This exercise adds definition to your jaw line too.

Face Exercises – Why Doing Just One Facial Exercise May Not Be Enough


What face exercises are you doing?

What face exercises are you doing?

I have been thinking about the face exercises videos that I’ve up on YouTube lately. Some of you might have already viewed those videos here on my blog.

By all means, these workout demos, “Lose Your Chubby Cheeks” and “Lift Your Sagging Jowls” are simple and effective face exercises you can all do at home.

However, a nagging thought bugs me.

What if my readers think that by following ONE face exercise exactly 100%, they could fix the problem there and then.

No. That would be misleading the readers.

So I have decided to put things in the right perspective. Hear me ramble.

Those face exercises are indeed the proper facial workout people are doing to lose chubbiness or to lift saggy jowls.

However, it is NOT the only ONE face exercise required of you.

Why do I need more face exercises?

Because each face exercise serves a different purpose(s).

For example, Face Exercise 1 helps to relax and release muscle tension. Face Exercise 2 works to tone and lift the face muscles. And Face Exercise 3 serves to build and strengthen the facial muscles.

The muscles in the face benefit from a variety of workouts. Each part of the face, whether it’s the cheek muscles or the jaw muscles require different forms of muscular stimulation to get it in top shape.

Also, in reality, the face area isn’t that big. The face is just about the length of an out-stretch palm. Hence the face muscles are small, unlike the body muscles.

As such, even with a face exercise that target specific sets of facial muscles, it is not exact science to be able to isolate one set of muscles from another set of neighboring muscles. And there are times when you want to work several sets of muscle groups simultaneously.

For instance, you want to lift sagging jowls. Your focus is on doing jowls exercise. But don’t forget, the cheeks are the jowls’ up-stair neighbor. You have to work the cheeks too.

Otherwise, when flabby cheeks slide downwards, the jowls become more pronounced.

That’s why we always have more than one exercise to address a problem area of the face.

Would doing a single face exercise be in vain?

Certainly not. Your efforts still pays off. Every exercise brings some benefits.

Whenever you exercise the face, it stimulates blood circulation and detox of the face. Muscles activity remove toxins and brings much needed oxygen and nutrients to the skin.

You also improve muscle tone to a problem area.

Often, this is one of the first steps you need to do when planning to slim the face or to improve the facial contour.

What should I do next?

If you are after a toned face and radiant skin, you should exercise the face so that you work all the muscle groups of the face. You want balance and symmetry when you workout the facial muscles.

The face needs “maintenance” as we age. Double chin, jowls, wrinkles … all areas of the face will be a concern to you. Sooner or later, the face will need your attention to help lift or tuck.

You can now learn the face exercises others are doing to get the face in shape.
