Facial Toning Exercises For The Cheeks And Lips

Kiss me here

Kiss me here

Doing facial toning exercises can help improve your looks(and make you more kissable).

Just think for a second, which part of the face would you choose to plant a kiss?

Most people would go for the cheeks or the lips.

But what if you have flabby cheeks? Or droopy mouth corners that turn downwards?

No worries. Face exercises can help revive your looks.

As you all know, toned and firm cheeks is the symbol of youth. And a mouth corner lift will make you more attractive because you now look relaxed and happy.

However, facial muscles are prone to sagging if they are not exercised enough. The face muscles lose their tone and strength with age and the constant pull of gravity.

In addition, unhealthy lifestyle habits can also make you look old prematurely. Eating poorly, lack of sleep and rest, indulging in alcohol or smoking, would take a toll on your health and appearance.

In order to maintain healthy skin and muscles, you do need to provide adequate nourishment for your body to rebuild and rejuvenate.

This is the reason why you get the best results when you combine good skin care and a sensible diet with your facial exercises.

Whilst you cannot escape Newton’s Law of Gravity, you can certainly slow down the aging process right now.

To reverse the downward facial sag in the cheeks and mouth corners, you would have to firm up your facial muscles. This can be achieved via face exercises.

Your goal is to regain muscle tone and natural firmness to your face muscles.

But why do I choose to target the cheeks and lips?

That’s because flabby cheeks and droopy mouth corners are pretty common with advancing age. It happens naturally.

However, by toning and firming the cheeks and lips area, you can dramatically improve your looks.

Here are three simple facial toning exercises to help firm your cheeks and lips. Perform the exercises daily.

Face Exercise 1

1. Inflate both of your cheeks with air.
2. Move the air from one cheek to the other.
3. Keep doing this until you are out of breath.
4. Do a set of 5.

Face Exercise 2

1. Gently smile and lift up the corners of your mouth.
2. Keep the eyes and other muscles of the face relaxed as you smile.
3. Hold the smile for 10 seconds.
4. Do a set of 5.

Face Exercise 3

1. Purse your lips slightly and smile.
2. Imagine you are a fish smiling.
3. Suck your cheeks into the hollows of your face.
4. Hold this position for 5 seconds.
5. Do a set of 5.

Did I say it was easy? I like to keep my face workout simple and effective.

These work for both gals and guys.

Face Exercises – Women Are Turning To Facial Exercises To Stay Beautiful

What can face exercises really do for your face?

Plenty… provided you do the right facial exercises consistently.

For women, our facial appearance changes noticeably in our 30s and 40s. The skin loses its suppleness, the high cheekbones is less defined, and the apple of the cheek (oops where did it go?).

If you are observant, you would notice that the first signs of aging often show up in the face and neck area? Fine lines appear on the face and “rings” around the neck.

The cheeks slide down. Face feels a little flabby. The facial contour is fuller. You see jowls. And for some, a double chin.

Most of us take good care of our skin. We have a daily regime to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and provide sun protection.

But what about the facial muscles? We hardly pay any attention to these working muscles.

You see, in order to maintain a youthful looking face, you require a combination of healthy skin and toned facial muscles.

If one or the other is not in good shape, you might end up looking older or haggard.

Here’s where face exercises come in.

Take a look at these benefits and you’ll know why more women are doing facial exercises to stay beautiful.

Radiant Complexion

Your skin is revitalized. This is the first thing you would notice when you begin your face exercises. The blood circulation to the face improves during a facial exercise compared to when the facial muscles are at rest.

This promotes the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the facial tissues and aids skin cell renewal. Face exercises also stimulate lymph drainage which helps facial tissue detox.

With facial exercises, your skin looks healthier with a radiant glow.

Tone And Lift Facial Muscles

The face and neck area has 57 muscles. Facial muscles are small compared to other muscles in the body. But you can still exercise the face muscles to get them back in shape.

Toned muscles are firm to the touch and give a up lifting appearance. Face muscles that have not been exercised enough tend to be flaccid and sags.

With facial exercise the muscles and skin lift, tone and tighten restoring the face. The sagging face syndrome and wrinkles becomes less apparent.

Lose Face Fat

Are you trying to get a “slimmer” face?

One misconception is that you have to lose overall body weight to lose face fat.

Not true. Especially for individuals who have a healthy body weight or are already slender.

There are some amongst us who workout, have a toned shapely body, but still have a chubby looking face.

It is possible to make a puffy round face look slimmer through face exercises and the proper nutritional plan.

This approach also works if you are trying to get rid of a double chin, chubby cheeks or jowls.

You would want to go for toning, strengthening and sculpting exercises that target your facial problem zones to attain a more desirable facial contour.

Thus, to have a beautiful face, you want to take good care of both your skin and the facial muscles.

If you want to improve how you look, you might want to start by doing some facial toning exercises.

In fact, I find that you get to look better and better if you do the right face exercises consistently.

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:

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

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

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.

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

Face Exercise To Get Rid Of Double Chin

<a onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outgoing/');" href="">LinkedTube</a>

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.


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 – A Lower Face Lift Exercise Targeting Sagging Jowls

I have been looking at face exercises for the jowls. As usual, I need the face exercise to be effective, yet simple enough for anyone to do it at home.

But first, what are jowls?

Jowls form when the cheeks sag. Essentially, jowls are loose hanging skin and facial fat on either side of the face that descend down to or below the jawline.

As we age, the jowls become prominent and sag. This is a common feature of facial aging. Often, you would see people in their 50s with pronounced sagging jowls.

The lower face or lower cheek area is fuller. Jowls create an unflattering rectangle shape jaw line. The lower face can look ‘lumpy’ and soft.

Some people are bothered by the appearance of jowls. They can make one look older and fat in the face.

There are numerous face exercises that target sagging jowls.

Here is one effective lower face lift exercise that I like.

This face exercise work the following muscles:

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


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.


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


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

Lower Face Lift Exercise For Sagging Jowls

1. Sit up straight.
2. Push your jaw forward.
3. Hold for 10 seconds.
4. Draw your jaw inwards (back to its original position).
5. Do a set of 10.

Even though this is a very simple exercise, it is powerful because it works the chin, jaw and neck muscles at the same time. It sculpts and tones the jowls and chin and redefine a smooth jaw line.

Try this face exercise now to get rid of sagging jowls or a double chin.

Tone, firm and lift facial sag with face exercises. Let me know if you have other great jowl exercises to share.

Face Exercises – Do You Want A Natural And Painless Face Lift?

Face exercises or cosmetic surgery?

Face exercises or cosmetic surgery?

Would you choose face exercises if it can help you get a ‘face-lift’ without pain?

I know, I can almost hear you say, “But doing face exercises is a pain”.

Isn’t that true. For some of us, any type of exercise is a chore … or torture.

But are there better options? How can you have a toned, younger looking face without having to go for cosmetic surgery or botox injections.

A surgical face-lift can create dramatic improvements in your appearance. On the other hand, face exercises  may take a longer time to show results. When doing face exercises, you first feel the difference(in your face muscles) before you can see the difference.

And when you continue to do the face workout regularly, other people will start to notice the difference in your facial appearance.

Here are a few reasons why you might want to choose face exercises over cosmetic surgery:

1. You want to look your best. But you are not keen about cosmetic surgery.

2. You do not want to spend a lot of money.

3. You have thought of cosmetic surgery and botox. However, to maintain the good looks, you might need additional procedures in the future. And this puts you off.

4. Face exercises give your skin a healthy radiant glow. A surgical face-lift doesn’t get you such result.

5. You prefer a holistic or alternative approach to beauty and fitness.

If this is the first time you hear about face exercises, why not give it a try and see if it works for you.

It could be a good thing to do before you take the extreme leap to undergo a cosmetic or surgical procedure.

For some people, doing face exercises is the way to go. It takes a little more effort and time. But the results might just be enough to make you realize, you don’t need a surgical face-lift after all.
