Yoga Poses to Slim Down Your Face
Yoga may not be as effective as some of the other methods of weight loss that are available to you, but it is non-invasive, does not cause any discomfort, and produces results that are more permanent.
1. Simha Mudra (Lion Pose)
Advantages: The Simha Mudra stimulates and tones all of your facial muscles. It is one of the most beneficial asanas for the thyroid glands in the area of the neck as well as the face.
Procedure: Get on your knees and rest your hands on the top of your thighs. Put your lower jaw on the floor and spread your mouth wide open. Put some energy behind sticking your tongue out so that it’s pointing toward your chin. Make a sound from down in your throat that imitates the roar of a lion as you are breathing in and out through your mouth. Perform the exercise several times in succession.
2. Jivha Bandha (Locked Tongue Pose)
Benefits: Jivha Bandha is a facial exercise that can sculpt your jawline and chisel your face. In addition to that, it works to tone the muscles in your face.
Procedure: Assume the lotus position and sit down. If the lotus position does not seem comfortable owing to tight hips or tension in the knees, the cross-seated position is an acceptable alternative. Put your hands in a position where they are comfortable on your lap. Make a fist with your mouth and press the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth as though you are trying to swallow something into your mouth. While maintaining this position for your tongue, slowly and completely expand your mouth until you feel a stretch in the back of your throat and across your neck. It should be done a few more times. Maintain a normal breathing pattern through your nose.
3. Jalandhar Bandha (Chin Lock)
Benefits: Jalandhar Bandha changes the shape of your face and tightens the muscles in your face and jaw line. It is great for people with double chins because it is a very effective way to get rid of them.
Procedure: Sit in the Lotus position or something similar to it. Take a deep breath. Put your hands on your knees and lift your sternum toward your chin. Once your sternum is in place on your chin, bend your head forward and down. Stay in this spot.
4. Fish Face
Benefits: The fish face strengthens and stretches the muscles in your cheeks. It makes your face smoother and makes your cheeks less saggy.
Procedure: Try to make a fish face by pulling your lips and cheeks in toward your nose. Try to smile while holding that face. Your cheeks and jaw will start to hurt. Rest and do the exercise again.
5. Mouthwash Technique
Benefits: Your cheeks will get firmer and your double chin will stay away if you use this technique.
Procedure: Fill your oral cavity with air. Transfer the air in your mouth from one corner to the other, as if you were using mouthwash. Continue the method for several minutes, then repeat several times.
6. Cheek Uplift
Benefits: Fill your oral cavity with air. Transfer the air in your mouth from one corner to the other, as if you were using mouthwash. Continue the method for several minutes, then repeat several times.

7. Chin Lift
Benefits: The chin lift eliminates the double chin and expands the jaw, throat, and neck.

8. Neck Roll
Benefits: The most effective approach to getting rid of a double chin is to roll your neck. It tones the muscles of the chin, mouth, and neck. It tightens the skin of the neck and diminishes drooping and wrinkles.
Procedure: Relax and keep your head pointing forward when seated. Now, bow your head to one side in line with your chin and make a circular motion with your head. Maintain a straight spine and relaxed shoulders while doing so. Do the circular movements both clockwise and counterclockwise for a few minutes, making sure that the shoulders and scapulars don’t slide up toward the ears.
9. Lip Pull
Benefits: Lip Pull tones face muscles and give you prominent cheekbones and a strong jawline. It helps one appear younger.
Procedure: While seated or standing, keep your head facing forward and straight. Lift your bottom lip as high as possible by extending your lower jaw. While doing so, you should feel a stretch in your chin muscles and jawline. Hold this position for a few seconds, then relax and repeat.
10. Jaw Release
Benefits: Jaw release results in crisp and appealing cheekbones, a prominent jaw line, and a reduction of the double chin. It stretches the lip, jaw, and cheek muscles.

Then, widen your mouth as widely as possible while placing your tongue on your bottom teeth. Hold it for a few seconds and repeat it several times in a row.
