Expanding the mouth area
Firstly, pull both lips inwards and hold them together tightly. Then expand your mouth area by blowing air into your mouth. Hold it there and count to five before releasing and repeat this exercise a couple of times. This should help to minimise visibility of smile lines.
For this next exercise, you need to suck in your cheeks and purse your lips to make a fish face. Hold this and count to five before releasing. Repeat a couple of times. Keep trying this to strengthen the face to reduce laughter lines.
Do a wide smile with your teeth on show before squeezing the sides of your cheeks to flex the corners of your mouth. This will work the specific area where smile lines tend to affect the skin. Repeat this exercise five times.
Making an O Shape
This exercise is great for activating the muscles in your cheeks. Try making a small O shape with your lips slightly parted. As you do this, try and smile from the corners of your mouth – you should be able to feel the stretch in your cheeks. Hold for a few seconds before releasing.
Lifting the Cheekbones
With your lips pressed together in a relaxed way, smile widely and your cheekbones should lift up. Hold for a few seconds and relax. This exercise should tone up the muscles in your cheeks, as well as reducing the appearance of laugh lines.
