1. Smile and laugh more. This is good for chubby cheeks. Exercise by smiling as wide as you can with lips closed and alternately do this with smiling as wide as you can with teeth showing. Do this exercise for at least 5 times. You can feel the cheek muscles contract.
2. Close your mouth and suck in both cheeks so they will become hollow. Hold it for about 10 seconds then relax. Try to do this 5 times.
3. Close your mouth and puff in the left cheek first with air and hold for about 5 seconds, then transfer the air to the right cheek. Make 5 repetitions on each cheek.
4. Form an “O” shape with your mouth with your lips slightly apart and smile from the corners of your mouth. You can feel the cheek muscles contract. Hold for about 3 seconds then relax. Repeat five times.
5. Open the mouth wide and stick out your tongue as far as you can. Hold for a count of 5 then relax. Repetitions can be done as many as you can in the privacy of your home.
6. Pinch and squeeze cheeks daily using your index, middle and ring fingers; massage on the upward position so cheeks won’t sag while trying to exercise them.
