Top 5 Face Exercise Tips for Men (March 2020)

If you’ve ever scoured the Internet for ways to tighten and tone your face, you’ve probably come across a few face exercises.

Although the science behind facial exercises is a mixed bag, this doesn’t stop guys from trying them in order to achieve slimmer cheekbones or put a stop to their forehead wrinkles.

Maybe they work, or maybe they don’t. Either way, it doesn’t hurt to try a few facial exercises in an attempt to achieve a chiseled look.

To get the most out of your face workout, here is what you need to know about face exercises for men:

  • To combat wrinkles naturally, start with facial exercises that target the forehead.
  • If your goal is to attract women, try face exercises that work your jaw muscles.
  • Stick with your face exercises daily by combining them with another daily routine.

Tip #1: Minimize Forehead Wrinkles

Are you beginning to see signs of wrinkles on your forehead? You’re not alone.

Due to the differences in how men and women age, the forehead is where most guys begin noticing signs of aging.

In fact, a 2013 study published in Dermatologic Surgery found that forehead wrinkles can show up in guys as early as their 20s (see claim: “Very fine wrinkles on the forehead are visible in men in the youngest age group, 20-29, whereas forehead lines in women are first evident between 40 and 49.”)

The good news is that, along with anti-aging skin care products, there are a few face exercises for men that may help reduce the progression of forehead wrinkles.

One such exercise involves giving your entire face a facelift: Simply make a facial movement as though you were going to smile or laugh, but don’t actually go through with it.

This movement slightly works the forehead muscles without furrowing your brow.


Tip #2: Target the Muscles Around Your Jawline

If the goal of your face exercises is to be more attractive to women, focus on your jawline first.

Research has found that women generally prefer guys with masculine-looking features (such as robust jawlines) because these features supposedly signal good health and vitality.

A 2019 study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that most women preferred masculine features over feminized faces in their long-term partners (see claim: “In contrast to past research, facial masculinity preferences were stronger when judging for co-parenting partners than for short-term mates.”)

Put simply, you should start working your jaw muscles ASAP to get an irresistible jawline that drives women wild.

You can start exercising your jaw muscles by opening your mouth and saying “OO” and “EE” in exaggerated movements. Do three sets of 10 each day.

"Being a personal trainer, looking great is part of my job. Had recent string of break outs that really took their toll on my skin and wanted a solution that was simple to follow. Enter Tiege Hanley. After using it since it started, the talks about my skin went from 'what happened to your skin"' to 'what are you doing with your skin, its looks amazing'. Love the AM moisturizer, as it helps keep my face hydrated and doesn't dry it out." Isaiah J. Whiting, IN


Tip #3: Combine Your Face Exercises with Healthy Habits

Unfortunately, facial exercises alone aren’t usually enough to get a toned face. To maximize the impact of your face exercises, you should also eat a healthy diet, follow a simple skin care regimen and focus on breaking a sweat every day.

If you’re carrying around some excess weight, dropping a few pounds can make a dramatic difference in your face.

Ditch the soda and refined carbs and swap them for lean protein, nourishing fats and whole grains for a more toned and tightened appearance in the face.

As an added bonus of your healthy eating, you may notice an improvement in your acne as well.

Tip #4: Make It Part of Your Daily Routine

While the jury is still out on whether face exercises actually do anything, one thing is certain: They won’t work at all unless you make them a daily habit.

If you have trouble remembering to do your face exercises, try setting a specific time to perform them each day.

For instance, try doing them after you brush your teeth in the morning or after your bedtime skin care routine.

Pairing your face exercises with another daily routine will help get you in the mindset of doing them every day.

Before you know it, your face workout will be just another daily habit that takes no conscious effort on your part.

Tip #5: The Best Face Exercise Might Be Relaxation

When working your face muscles, you need to be careful with how you’re doing them.

Some face exercises can potentially make your wrinkles worse if you’re not careful, which is why some experts believe that relaxation techniques and facial massages are more preferable.

Getting a professional facial massage—or simply using a face massage roller—can relax face muscles, boost circulation and improve the appearance of your skin.

In a 2018 study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine, researchers found that a daily, five-minute session with a massage roller could increase blood flow to the skin (see claim: “Acute facial massage with a roller increases skin blood flow…”)

Avoiding excessive muscle activity may be key to slowing down the formation of wrinkles, so it doesn’t hurt to try a little R&R for your face. Besides, everyone can benefit from a little regular self-care.

Getting Fit in the Face

Keep in mind that while face exercises may have some benefits, they aren’t a cure-all for your wrinkles.

To give your face a tight and toned appearance, you need to combine your face exercises with a healthy diet, regular exercise and a powerful anti-aging serum for men.
