Facial Exercises For A Firm Neck
Facial muscles will lose elasticity over time and soon you may begin to notice some wrinkles around the eyes and face. Another problem that you may begin to notice is loose saggy skin around the neck and throat area as this area tends to show age faster than other areas of the face. Many people will resort to expensive and invasive surgeries to reduce the sagging skin around the neck. There are some great 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. For this exercise you need to sit on the floor and have your legs folded comfortably and your back straight.
Slowly tilt your head backwards and hold this position for 10 seconds. Return head to the forward position. You should feel the stretch in the jaw line as you do this exercise. Repeat this exercise for five sets. 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. While still in the sitting position keep your head facing forward and your shoulders relaxed. Tile 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. 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.
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.
