Neck Toner or jaw
strengthener Open your mouth, place your lower lip over your bottom teeth, then do a "scoop", wait
3 seconds, do another"scoop", then at the end exhale. This can tone the chin, neck and jaw line within 5
toner To tone your neck, chin and jaw
line, try this exercise . Put one hand on the front of your neck and the other hand on your desk or
a table. While sitting tall, position your chin up as high as you can, but not hurting the back of
your neck. Smile as you look up toward the ceiling. Then, push away from the desk with your hand. Rock
back and forth, as if you were on a rocking chair, so as to have all your energy going out
toward your back. Then, push backwards and slowly return to the upright position. Quickly push, with your
feet and hands, and continue looking towards the ceiling. Rock for at least 30 times. Then, turn your
head toward your right shoulder and rock at least 30 more times. Finally, turn your head
towards your left shoulder, and without stopping, rock at least 30 times
Nose Shortener This exercise will narrow and shorten your nose which, regrettably, tends to grow
longer as we age. To perform this exercise, with your index finger and thumb grasp the bridge of
your nose, as if you’re simultaneously pinching and pushing down on the bridge of your
nose. With your other index finger, push your nose tip up strongly. With your lips closed, pull
your upper lip down and relax. Repeat this exercise for 40 times, all the while keeping the tip of
your nose pushed upwards.
Toner This exercise will tone, narrow and lift the
sides of your face. First, open your mouth and roll your lips over your teeth as much as possible. Then,
roll the corners of your mouth inside, in the process pulling them towards the back teeth. Next, make a
small opening with your mouth (but not a smile). Next, place your fingertips on your chin. Slowly move your
hands upwards, along the sides of your face to emphasize the visualization of the lifting of the sides of your
face. Finally, look up, and continue moving your hands upwards until you get a burning
feeling on the sides of your face. When you get this burn, push your face forwards, with your
shoulders leaning back and push your hands above your head 20 times or more.
Eye Enhancer This exercise will enhance muscles around your eye socket, as well as
reduce puffiness in the vicinity of the eyelids. It eliminates the tired, tense appearance that sets in
as one begins to lose muscle tone around the eye socket. To perform this
exercise, position your index and middle fingers on the inner and outer eye corners,
respectively, then visualize the sun coming into the eyes, squint upwards, and release.
Squint up, then release. Then hold the upwards squint for 20 seconds. This eye exercise will tone
the lower eyelids, and oxidize the surrounding cells with blood.
