4 Facial Exercises For a Defined Jawline: The Secrets of Jaw Definition Revealed

Wondering if Face Yoga for jawline and cheekbones works? The answer is a resounding yes. Forget endless diets and fad workout routines, facial exercise helps stimulate collagen production and firm sagging muscles – both of which occur as you age. If you’re looking for a sharp, defined, and elegant jawline, we’ve got 4 Face Yoga exercises to help you make it happen.

Did you know your skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness from the age of 25 onwards?

At the same time, the muscles of your neck and jaw (which are difficult to target in everyday life) also atrophy and lose their shape.

Without regular attention, your skin and muscles will sag and fall with each passing year, leaving you looking old and wrinkled well before your time. Failure to boost collagen (which is responsible for your skin’s elastic and taut surface) and muscle definition guarantees a jawline that’s lost shape and is *literally* falling down.

It’s easy to assume genetics is all it takes to enjoy a sharp chin, but you’re not at the mercy of a genetic lottery (and you won’t need to call on Botox any time soon).

If you want a chiseled and sharp jaw like the Angelina Jolies of the world, read on to discover how.

 

Why Face Yoga for Jawline and Cheekbones Works

Do you find yourself constantly looking down at your iPhone or laptop?

These modern postures contribute to a weaker, less defined jawline as they leave your front neck muscles underused and underdeveloped. And since it’s tough to work out your neck (outside of targeted facial exercises), you can contribute to a chubby or sagging jawline without realizing it.

Although this isn’t the only cause of saggy skin and jawline problems – with your body’s aging process also contributing to a loss of structure and firmness – it does reveal that the way you live your life has a direct impact on your appearance.

In terms of your posture, the muscles in question attach from your sternum to your collarbone, and with the right facial exercise you can activate these muscles, increase definition, and work out your jawline all from the comfort of your own couch.

If you’re interested in correcting facial sagging and stepping out with a striking jawline, we’ve gathered 4 of our favorite facial exercises for a defined jawline.

Jawline Exercise #1 – The Tongue Press

If you’ve ever used your tongue to try and dislodge a piece of food behind your teeth, you’ll already be a pro at this simple Face Yoga exercise.

Start by placing your tongue on the roof of your mouth, right up against your teeth. Next, close your mouth and apply upward pressure with your tongue. Holding your tongue in this position, make a humming sound (think “mhm mhm mhm”) to assist with muscle movement.

As silly as it may sound, aim to make this noise as loud as you can to ensure your tongue is vibrating fully, helping to tighten to sagging skin under your chin and melt face fat.

Jawline Exercise #2 – The Sagging Chin Supporter

This is an assisted Face Yoga exercise, meaning you’ll need both hands for maximum results. 

Start by sitting comfortably at a table, or level surface where you can rest your elbows. Keeping your elbows on the table, rest your chin on your balled fists. Holding this position, try to open your mouth. You should be generating resistance by (gently) pushing your fists up and your chin down.

This facial exercise helps target the muscles under your chin that, with time, lose shape and definition. With these muscles losing their shape and moving downwards (you can thank gravity for that), your chin becomes saggy and uneven.

But with Face Yoga for sagging jawline exercise, you can help return the sharp, crisp definition to your jaw.

Jawline Exercise #3 – The Vowel Sounds

It’s time to go back to school and work on your vowels.

It can be tough to activate facial muscles and prevent atrophy, and regular gym workouts or treadmill time won’t help sculpt your jawline. Instead, you can get creative to activate the muscles of your cheek, chin, and jawline and one of the simplest ways is to sound out your vowels – specifically “O” and “E”.

These vowels engage the core muscles of your jawline, so focus on articulating each vowel while doing your best to keep your teeth hidden by your lips. You’ll feel this pose pull on your lips, which is creating the resistance you need to drive change.

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 15 times

 

Jawline Exercise #4 – The Jawline Roll

This facial exercise requires a little practice, so only move onto this final jaw-defining movement if you’ve comfortably mastered the previous poses.

You’ll need to tense your face, as if anticipating being hit, then pucker your lips. Holding this position, forcefully say “EWW Charles” as if you’ve watched your friend, Charles, go to the bathroom without washing their hands (a big no-no in these pandemic times).

Although this may sound silly, forcing your mouth to enunciate these words while holding this tensed position draws a circle inside your mouth with your tongue. This creates resistance to work the crucial muscles around your jaw, and as these muscles become more defined, your jaw will become more sculpted.

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 10 times
