We’ve all been at a place when we look at ourselves in the mirror and want that perfect, chiselled jawline that could cut through anyone who dares to cross you. While some are lucky enough to be born with it, for others it’s a constant struggle to pop that jaw in every picture they take.

It may seem tedious at first, but it’s not as unachievable as you may have thought. The struggle to achieve and maintain and good jawline may be very real but it is also rewarding, so here are some ways to get that perfect jawline with some facial exercises, as compiled from Pinkvilla.

Vowel sounds

This is a fairly simple and fun exercise that will require you to say ‘O’ followed by ‘E’, the movements of which target the muscles around the mouth on the sides of the lips. Make sure to exaggerate the sounds for maximum effect! Do this for three sets of 15 repetitions. 

Tongue twister

Another seemingly easy exercise that you can practice sitting anywhere. You will need to place your tongue on the roof on your mouth and add tension. Begin humming and make vibrating sounds to activate your facial muscles. Do this for three reps of 15. 

Collar bone backup

For this, you need to keep your head at level with the floor and proceed to bring it back a few inches to allow the throat muscles to contract and relax. You can start with three sets of ten reps, and gradually build up to more as you get more comfortable.

Neck curl up

First, lie down with your tongue pressed on the roof of the mouth. Then you will have to bring the chin to your chest and lift your head off the ground about 2 inches. Make sure that you’re not lifting your stomach or poking your chin out. Three sets of ten repetitions should be ideal.

Chin lift

If you’re looking to reduce extra facial fat other than just toning your jawline, this exercise is key. Close your mouth, and proceed to push your lower jaw out, lifting your lower lip. This will stretch the muscles in the jawline and under the chin. Hold the position for 10 seconds and then relax. Do three sets of 15 reps.
