5. Do facial gymnastics

To perform these facial gymnastics exercises you do not need to have a lot of free time, that is what works in our favor since you can practice it even at work or in the office.

1. Exaggerated smile

We already know that smiling is good, but this time we are going to do it in front of the mirror and in the most exaggerated way possible. In this way we exercise most of the muscles of our face. Do fifteen repetitions.

2. Exercise of the “fish face”

This facial exercise is to practice every day to tone and remove a little fat from our cheeks and double chin . It consists of sucking the cheeks, like making a fish face. The lips are very pursed and similar to a beak. We will try to maintain this position for 5 to 10 seconds, we relax, and we repeat it 5 times.

3. Fill the mouth with air

It consists of taking air until the cheeks are inflated. We hold them for 10 seconds and release the air. Do 8-12 reps.

4. The vowels

Start by pronouncing the letter “A” (but without a voice, only with the gesture), with force. Then with the letters “E”, “O” and “U”. Ideally, repeat it 10 times with each letter.
Simple exercises for our face that you can repeat every day. Little by little you will see the results.
