The form of a person’s face changes as they age. As fat accumulates in the neck, the skin sags and the jawline muscles contract. Your jawline may become less defined as a result of this.
Neck curl-ups, which are similar to core crunches but for your neck, are performed lying down on your back with your tongue pushing against the roof of your mouth. This will engage the muscles in the front of the neck. To begin, complete three sets of ten repetitions and gradually increase the difficulty.
- Raise your chin to your chest, then elevate your head 3 cm off the ground.
- Don’t elevate your stomach or stick your chin out.
- When beginning this workout, remember to take it lightly and slowly. It may be fairly hard on undeveloped muscles and can cause neck pain if done incorrectly.
Clench and let go
When you tighten and realise, you’ll feel discomfort and a faint heat at first. However, there is no gain without suffering. However, as you advance, you should increase the length of time you clench, the frequency of repeats, and the number of reps. This will motivate your jawline to continue to tone.
- Another activity to try is teeth grinding, which involves clamping your jawline for 10 seconds or longer before releasing it.
- A good place to start is with 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions.
Collar Bone Backup
The collarbone backup will engage and work out the muscles behind your chin whether you are laying down, upright, or sitting. Begin with three sets of ten repetitions, each held for 30 seconds. When it becomes easier, hold the position for a longer period of time and always maintain a consistent rate of holding the position.
- Maintaining your head level with the floor, gently move it back until you feel muscles on either side of your throat contract, then return to the starting position, relax, and repeat.
- Make sure your ears are above your shoulders and your head is level.
Another simple jawline workout on this list is the tongue twister.
- Simply place your tongue on the roof of your mouth, but make sure it is hidden behind your teeth.
- Apply pressure on the roof of your mouth using your tongue.
- Begin humming and generating a vibrating noise.
Sounds of Vowels (Fish Face)
The vowel sounds exercise will strengthen the muscles surrounding your mouth. The purpose of this exercise is to widen your mouth as wide as possible while pronouncing “O” and “E” sounds. Make sure that you enunciate the sounds and that your muscles are engaged. Try not to touch or reveal your teeth, and finish three sets of 10-15 reps.
- Say “O” followed by “E” with your mouth wide open.
- To fully strengthen those mouth muscles, make sure to overdo it when creating these noises and movements.
Chinups (Chin Lifts)
Chin lifts assist to raise the face and chin muscles. Because of the direction and tension, this exercise is excellent for improving jawline definition. This activity may now be done in two ways. Choose your preferred exercise and, like with the previous workouts, 10-15 repetitions of 3 sets will be sufficient.
- Turn your head skywards and fix your gaze on a certain area of the ceiling.
- Extend your lips as if you were attempting to kiss something in front of you.
- Maintain the stance for 5 seconds every rep, then relax and allow your lips to recover for a few seconds before repeating.
