Sounds like fun already, doesn’t it? Because it is! As far as facial toning exercises go, this one works like magic. It works on the very important muscles below the apple of your cheek. To get the best out of it, stick your tongue out and stretch it toward your chin as you would if you were trying to touch it with your tongue. Hold this for about ten seconds before you go back to the normal position. You’ll feel the tension in your muscles. Do this for ten counts, just not in public maybe? Though that would be fun too! 😉

3. X’s & O’s

No, I’m not talking about the game, obviously. This face exercise involves pronouncing the letters X and O while you make an exaggerated use of your facial muscles. It’s like stretches for your cheeks and jaw while you say your alphabet. This will be perfect for you if you’re looking at burning some cheek fat and strengthening your facial muscles. You can do it just ten times a day and feel the difference within two weeks.

4. Lift it

You have to pull your cheeks upwards towards the eyes without changing the position of your lips and then slowly lift the cheeks from below like you do when you smile. Repeat this for ten counts every day, and you’ll have yourself a lean look for them cheeks. Let’s all do the cheek lifts!

5. Fish face time

This is another fun one! You’ll have to purse your lips while sucking in your cheeks to look like a fish. Once you get there, try pushing up the outer corner of your lips into a smile and hold for ten seconds. Do it ten times to work all the cheek areas and your jaw simultaneously. Do it like the fish!

6. The jaw way

This will help in kicking out all the extra layers on your chin. Drop your jaw like you do when you see that your annoying sibling actually saved you some ice cream. Just make sure you stretch and drop it down as much as possible and then jut out your lower jaw till you feel the tension in the cheeks. Hold and repeat at least ten times for best results.

7. Puff it up

This will give your upper and middle cheek muscles the workout it needs. Keep your lips closed and puff up your cheeks with air. Now, keep moving the air from one cheek to the other while you take some crazy selfies on your phone. Hold the air for five seconds on each side and repeat it ten times. It’s like using your mouthwash every day. You’ll love it for sure.
