A well-rounded fitness routine is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. But we usually fail to work out the most important elements of our muscles – our faces. More than 57 muscles in the face and neck require workout to stay toned and fit, as the rest of your body.
We start by working our cheeks central muscles. Pucker up your lips and open your mouth and close it. Push the lips out and tense your face to make the muscles work.

Just as the name says, think something really cringeworthy. Tighten your neck by pusging a corner of your mouth back. If you can see the lines in your neck in the mirror, then you are doing it correctly.

Everyone knows how to make this funny face. Suck in your cheeks and pucker your lips. Then, tilt your head back and imagine reaching to the ceiling with your chin for an extra stretch in your neck and chin.

A chubby face will have more definition with high cheekbones. Open your mouth with your lips over your teeth, take your fingers to your ears, and push your face up for the instant facial lift.

Believe it or not, just closing your eyes can help you burn fat in your cheeks. So close your eyes as tight as possible and really crunch up your face when you do this in order to feel the tension in your face.

Your chin can now do push-ups too. Push your lower lip upward over your upper lip and lift your chin as high as you can each time.

Imagine you’re greeting your French friends. Pucker up your lips as much as you can and move your lips from left to right. Make sure you go from side to side as far as you can.
This is not only a great stretch, but also an effective cheek fat burner. Push your tongue against the back of your lower front teeth and drop your jaw as far down as you can.
Like our bodies, our tongues may have a bad posture. Bad tongue posture may also change the look of our faces, for example when a double chin and a chubber face appear. Make sure your tongue and teeth are in the correct place when you rest. Your tongue should be resting against the roof of your mouth and your teeth should be lightly touching.
