Do tightening exercises using a band in your mouth or stretching your face last to tighten jaw line and facial lines?

Hi!

The facial muscles are the only muscles in the body that are attached to the skin. That's how we show emotion. Many patients in mental hospitals look very young because they are expressionless.

Facial exercises are the worst possible idea, because when you contract your facial muscles, you drag the skin around and create stretching and wrinkles, and you speed up facial aging.
