Exercise #1: reshape the oval and tone the lower part of the face

Make an “O” shape with your mouth, then wrap your lips around your teeth. Move your lower jaw forward as much as possible and smile as you feel your cheekbones contract. Tilt your head back and hold the position for 30 seconds. Repeat twice to do it three times in total.

Exercise #2: plump and smooth the lower face

Place the fingers of the right hand firmly on the mouth to immobilize the orbicularis oculi and flatten it slightly. Then inflate the cheeks with air and, while maintaining a minimum amount of air in each cheek, try to circulate it from one cheek to the other for 30 seconds. Make sure to breathe through your nose. Take a short break for a few seconds, then start again twice to do it three times in total.

Exercise n°3: effectively erase the double chin

Place the tip of your tongue outside your teeth, under your upper lip. Open your jaw slightly and make circular movements of your tongue along your mouth, ten circles in one direction and ten circles in the other direction. Make sure you don’t create any creases around the mouth. If this is the case, open your jaw a little more to further stretch the tissues.
