Exercises to get rid of face jowls

Exercises to get rid of face jowls can tone a sagging neckline and firm up a double chin. While you cannot expect a complete reversal of facial jowl issues, you can firm the area up substantially. Combined with a complete fitness program and healthy diet choices, it is possible to improve the neckline's appearance for good. Do each of these exercises a few days a week to see results.

Head Up Exercises

Tilt your head up toward the ceiling while keeping your mouth closed without forcing it tightly closed. Breathe normally. Begin to make a chewing motion as if you were eating. You will begin to feel the muscles contracting. Repeat this chewing motion 20 times. This exercise will help firm up a double chin.

Next, sit upright and point your head to the ceiling pressing your lips together, but keeping them relaxed. Then move your lower lip up over your top lip as far as you can. Hold for a count of five. Release and return to the starting position and repeat the exercise 10 times.

Stretching Exercise

Sit in a chair or stand upright and gradually turn your head to the left, feeling the stretch and pull of your neck muscles. Do not drop or lift your chin. Remain in this position until the count of five, then repeat with the right side, holding for a count of five. Repeat this exercise three times. This will help tone a double chin and firm up sagging skin.

The X Exercise

Sit in an upright position. Put your hands firmly on your neck as though you were going to choke yourself, forming an "X" formation with your hands. Keeping your hands firmly in that position, look up towards the ceiling until you feel your neck muscles stretching. Hold this position for about 45 seconds. Repeat this exercise between 10 and 15 times a day to see results.

Diet and Regular Exercise

In addition to toning your jowls with exercise, it is important to monitor your diet and include healthy foods like whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and lean sources of protein. These changes along with regular exercise, such as walking or biking will have a major impact on your health and improve your overall appearance, including that of your face and neck.
