Best Facial Exercises for a Firm Neck and Jowls

Last Updated on September 30, 2021 by Smart Life Picks

I  saw a facial surgery that went bad and will want to encourage many people to try neck exercises to get rid of sagging neck and jowls before any other method. But do these exercises really work?

We are very aware of the fact that facial muscles loose elasticity over time cause some noticeable wrinkles around the eyes and face. Others may begin to notice loose saggy skin around the neck and throat area as this area tends to show age faster than other areas of the face.

But Many people resort to expensive and invasive surgeries to reduce the sagging skin around the neck without fully exhausting all the options available.

There are some great but simple exercises that you can do to target the neck area and reduce the saggy skin, and they are much cheaper than a facelift!

Let’s take a look at some effective exercises to help tone the neck and throat and reduce sagging.

Tilting of head backwards and forwards

For this exercise, you need to sit on the floor and have your legs folded comfortably and your back straight.

Slowly tilt your head backward and hold this position for 10 seconds.

Return head to the forward position.

You should feel the stretch in the jawline as you do this exercise.

Repeat this exercise for five sets.

Turning head to left and right

Next, stay in the sitting position, relax your shoulders, and look straight ahead.

Turn your head slowly to the right and have your chin even with your shoulder.

Hold this position for five seconds and then return to looking straight ahead.

Repeat on the left side so you are looking left and your chin is even with your left shoulder.

Hold for five seconds and then return to the facing forward position.

Repeat this exercise three times on both sides.

Tilting of head left and right

While still in the sitting position keep your head facing forward and your shoulders relaxed.

Tilt your head to the right side and hold for five seconds.

Come back into the middle.

Tilt your head to the left side and hold for five seconds, then come back into the middle.

Repeat this on both sides for three sets.

You should feel the stretch in your neck during this exercise.

Inhaling and exhaling with head dropped

For the next exercise, you want to be on your hands and knees.

Drop your head down toward the floor and keep your neck, spine, and elbows straight.

Slowly inhale. Exhale slowly and as you do so curve your back downward and lift your head upward.

Repeat this five times.

Sit on the floor again facing forward.

Tilt your head back slowly and move your jaw up and down.

Hold this position for ten seconds then return to the forward-facing position.

Repeat this three times.

Chewing Exercise

Be seated and lift your head back with your chin pointing upwards. you should feel some tightening under the chin.

Pretend to chewing something for 10-20 seconds with your lips closed.

Repeat this process 10-20 times.

Then,  open your mouth wide and then close your mouth very slowly but don’t let your teeth touch.

Repeat this another 10-20 times.

This will tone your chin and reduces the appearance of jowls.

In addition to the above exercises, a healthy diet is important. It keeps your muscles functioning properly and keeps your skin looking good. Practice good skin care by avoiding excessive sun exposure,  protect your skin when outside and use the right skincare products. Most do more long term damage than good.

Combined jaw-opening and jaw-closing exercise with resistance

At first place your thumbs firmly underneath the tip of your chin. Open your jaw and resist the opening with your thumbs. Then place your index fingers over your front lower teeth and gently resist the jaw-closing Movement.

Repeat 10 times.

The resistance subtly resists the active movements without stopping them. The movements should be slow and even and the resistance gentle.

Resisted jaw forward thrust exercise

Place the index and middle fingers of your both hands against your chin.
Move your lower jaw slightly forward and resist the movement lightly and gently with your fingers.

The resistance subtly resists the active movement without stopping it.

Repeat 10 times.

Coordinated jaw side-to-side exercise with tongue

a) Shift your jaw to the side and move your tongue to the same side, the tongue tip reaching the tooth farthest back in your upper jaw. Hold the position for 3–5 seconds. Return slowly.

Do the same on the other side. Alternate this 5 times on both sides.
b) Average normal sideways movement of the jaw varies between 8 mm and 12 mm.

In conclusion, these simple exercises are very effective for toning and tightening the muscles in the neck and throat area.

If you do these exercises every day, you will build stronger muscles that will give you a more youthful appearance.

Performing the exercises every day will start to give you results in a couple of weeks.

Try to stay in a calm, relaxed mood while doing these exercises so the muscles are relaxed and more flexible for the exercises. Burning a candle or listening to relaxing music can help.
