Facial exercises to make the face fuller

Updated February 21, 2017

Facial exercises are a great way to tone and firm up your face without having surgical procedures. Not only can you improve your circulation and get rid of wrinkles, but these exercises will help plump up your facial muscles, which will make your face appear fuller. The best part is that it is an all-natural, nonharmful way to do so.

Cheek Exercises

For a fuller face, begin with your cheeks. They are naturally the meatiest part of your face, so toning them up will increase their muscles mass and make your face appear more plump and full. One exercise you can do is really simple. Stick one of your fingers in your mouth and close your lips around it. Suck on your finger for five seconds as hard as you can while sucking in your cheeks. Release, and repeat 15 more times. This will help strengthen your cheek muscles and enhance the circulation and oxygen flow to your face, so your cheeks look more pink and full.

Another exercise is to pucker your lips out as far and as tight as you can. Then, bring your lips back into a smiling position with your mouth shut tight. Hold for about five seconds, extend your lips out again, and then bring them into the smile another time. Repeat this 15 times, and you will actually feel your facial muscles begin to get weak, because you are really working them. . One last cheek exercise is really simple. Place your index finger and middle finger on each cheek and then slowly rub in a circular motion. This will stimulate the muscles, which will thicken them up and cause them to look fuller.

Neck Exercise

You may not think of your neck as part of your face, but it is, and it is just as important to work your neck muscles to achieve a fuller look. If you happen to have loose skin under your chin or around your neck, this is the perfect exercise to tighten those muscles and help your face appear fuller. Begin by sitting straight up in a chair and extending your neck all the way back. Next, place your bottom lip over your upper lip as far as you can and hold for about five seconds. Repeat this 20 times. This exercise will pull your sagging neck skin, which will strengthen the muscles back into a tighter, yet elastic, state.
