#1 – The Assisted Exhale

Helps Slim: Your Nose

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Take your fingers and close your right nostril, making sure no air can escape

✧ Exhale strongly through the left nostril, pushing as much air as you can out 

✧ Hold your exhale for 10 seconds (it’s OK if you can’t maintain the full 10 seconds, just push as hard as you can)

✧ Switch to the right nostril and repeat

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Nose slimming can take more time as your nose is predominantly made up of cartilage. That’s why you need to target the surrounding muscles to reshape and slim your nose. This exercise helps work the muscles of your nostrils, helping to reduce nostril size and slim your nose.

 

#2 – The Cheekbone Lift

Helps Slim: Your Cheeks

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Place two fingers on each cheekbone

✧ Apply pressure upwards to create tension and taut skin

✧ Open your mouth wide into an ‘O’ shape, like you’re shocked at seeing your kids pick up their dirty laundry after themselves

✧ Hold this open-mouthed pose for 5 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 10 to 15 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Learning how to slim your cheeks is easy with this Face Yoga pose that helps replicate the effects of a facelift, without the surgery. The more you practice this pose, the more defined your cheekbones will become. Goodbye, excess cheek skin and saggy cheeks, and hello younger, slimmer-looking you.

#3 – The Chipmunk

Helps Slim: Your Cheeks

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Tilt your head back until you’re looking at the ceiling

✧ Draw in your cheeks as far as possible (like a chipmunk)

✧ Hold this pose for 5 seconds while keeping tension in your cheek muscles

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 10 to 15 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Excess fat around the cheeks can leave you feeling puffy and low on confidence. Working your cheek muscles helps to tighten the connected facial muscles and draw your cheeks out, creating a rounder, fuller appearance and melting unwanted jowls.

 

#4 – The Mouthwash 

Helps Slim: Your Double Chin

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Find a comfortable spot to sit or stand

✧ Fill your mouth with air until it is full (imagine it is full of water)

✧ Move the air from one side of your mouth to the other, like you were rising with a mouthwash

✧ Continue for two to three minutes

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 2 to 3 times a day

Why Your Face Will Love It: No one wants to wake up to a double chin, and with this facial exercise you can help lift the skin of your jaw and tighten an unwanted double chin. This helps reduce the appearance of the dreaded “turkey neck” and leaves you looking younger.

 

#5 – The Forehead Press

Helps Slim: Your Forehead

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Place your fingertips above each eyebrow, resting against the skin

✧ Gently apply downward pressure

✧ Try to raise your eyebrows against the downward pressure to create resistance 

✧ Hold this facial pose for 6 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: While a slimmer forehead probably isn’t on your priority list, a smoother forehead just might be. This Face Yoga pose helps erase frown lines and remove the appearance of a furrowed brow.

 

#6 – The Lip Pull

Helps Slim: Your Jawline

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Find a spot to sit or stand comfortably

✧ Keep your eyes facing forward and stick your lower lip out by extending your lower jaw

✧ Focus on creating tension and resistance in your lower lip and the surrounding muscles

✧ Hold this pose for 3 to 6 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: If you’ve ever wanted a slim jawline like Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, or your favorite movie star, this is the exercise for you. This facial exercise for a slimmer face works by tightening the muscles around your lips for a plump pout and a more svelte jawline.

 

#7 – The Puffer Fish

Helps Slim: Your Nasolabial Folds

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Close your mouth and fill the space with air

✧ Move the air from the back of your mouth to the front so your cheeks are inflating and deflating (like a Puffer Fish)

✧ Repeat this movement for 30 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 10 to 15 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Laughing is one of life’s joys. Laugh lines…not so much. The lines around your nose and cheeks – known as nasolabial folds, can be smoothed out and reduced with this simple, at-home Face Yoga exercise.

 

#8 – The Neck Roll

Helps Slim: Your Neck

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Find a comfortable spot to sit

✧ Facing forward, gently roll your head from left to right (imagine you’re ducking under a tree branch if it helps with your movement)

✧ Make sure your shoulders don’t move up to meet your ears and that only your neck muscles are activated

✧ Continue for 30 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 2 to 3 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Neck rolling is one of the most effective ways to reduce the appearance of a double chin and keep your neck tight and toned. This helps prevent saggy skin, often referred to as “turkey neck” and helps create an overall younger appearance.

 

#9 – The Resistance Smile

Helps Slim: Your Mid-Face

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Open your mouth and part your lips slightly

✧ Use your index fingers to raise the corners of your mouth slightly

✧ Try to purse your lips while keeping resistance on your lips and raising gently

✧ Hold this feeling of tension for 6 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: Slimming your mid-face can be tough as there are so many facial muscles at play. This pose activates a range of underlying muscles to help promote blood flow, improve circulation, and stimulate natural collagen production. These all combine to improve skin elasticity and help “lift” your mid-face, leading to a slimmer overall appearance.

 

#10 – Upper Lip Press

Helps Slim: Your Lower Face

Here’s How To Perform This Facial Exercise:

✧ Place both thumbs gently inside your upper lip

✧ Press your lip forward with your thumbs

✧ Push back against your thumbs with your upper lip until you feel medium resistance 

✧ Hold this feeling of tension for 6 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 10 to 15 times

Why Your Face Will Love It: In many cases, a rounder face can be the result of optical illusions due to asymmetrical features or an excess of lines. This Face Yoga exercise helps smooth out vertical wrinkles above the lip, often known as lip lines or lipstick lines, and as your face enjoys fewer wrinkles, you look slimmer and more symmetrical to others.
