A SIMPLE exercise can reduce the impact of an early sign of aging, and it only takes a minute of your time each day.
The jawline is one of the first areas on your body to show sagging or wrinkles as you get older.
Both men and women experience these facial changes, which can also happen after weight loss or gain.
Cristina Osorio, a yoga instructor, shared her wellness expertise with Healthline to detail a targeted jawline exercise for anti-aging.
As the muscles begin to shrink and go lax, or as you gain extra fat in the chin and neck area, the jawline loses definition.
Osorio detailed a step-by-step exercise that targets the muscles underneath the chin.
The quick routine takes only minutes to do – you can even do additional reps to maximize your results.
Try the exercise at your desk or during your commute, since you don’t need any additional tools.
Start the “tongue-twister” exercise by moving your tongue to the roof of your mouth. The tip of your tongue should rest behind your teeth.
Then, add tension to your chin and jaw by pushing your entire tongue against the roof of your mouth.
Activate your muscles by humming. You should feel the vibrations through your throat and tongue.
Hum for a few seconds, then relax your tongue and mouth.
Repeat the exercise again from step one.
Osorio recommends doing three sets of 15 every day.
