Some basic moves you start from today;

  • Pout Makes it Easy! : Don’t we all love pouting to capture our best angle in the pictures? This is exactly what you have to do in the next exercise but not in front of any camera. Just pout and push that forward (as much as possible), hold for 10 seconds and then smile broadly. No! Not for a picture again but this contraction and expansion of facial muscles would help in better circulation of blood. Repeat this exercise 4-5 times.
  • Relive Your Childhood, Make That Quirky ‘Fish Face’ again:  We’ll have done it for at least once in our childhood. Right? Sucking in the insides of cheeks with eyes stable (yes! Strictly without even a blink) for 10-15 seconds won’t only reduce extra fat accumulated in your face but also highlight your jaw line naturally. Repeat this for 4-5 times. Remember! Suck in with eyes stable, hold the pose for a few seconds and release. You can blink after releasing the pose obviously! 
  • Ready for Jaw stretch? : That double chin makes you feel like a flamingo in human form. Isn’t it? Don’t worry, this exercise will cut off your double chin (extra fat in outer part of lower jaw) in a couple of weeks if practiced regularly. Just tilt your head back and look up towards the ceiling. Then push your lower jaw forward until you feel a good stretch. Hold for 10 seconds and release. Repeating this 4 times will favor you in reducing that unwanted double chin sooner.
