By Rishiraj @beautyglimpseIn

Are you unhappy with your ‘baby-faced’ image? Want your face to get slim and look sculpted? All you need to do is practice some yoga exercises regularly. Yes, yoga can reshape your entire facial structure and help you get rid of that ‘overweight’ appearance. Read on below to know about 4 of those incredible yoga poses to practice for a slimmer face:

1. Lion Pose

Lion Pose

Simhasana or lion pose is known to be the most effective yogasana for making the face slimmer. It can tone up the muscles throughout your face, thereby stimulating the whole musculature, which results into a slimmer face in course of time. To practice this, you have to stoop on the floor while placing the hands on your knees. Your palms as well as all of your fingers should be straight enough. Now, inhale deeply. But instead of gulping the air in, simply keep your mouth wide open. Your jaw should be dropped and your tongue should be stuck out facing downwards. Then, exhale through your mouth and create a sound similar to the roar of a lion.

2. Chin Lock

Chin Lock

Chin lock is also named as jalandhara bandha and it plays a key role in reshaping a chubby face. It mainly works by toning up the facial muscles, restructuring the jaw line muscles and rectifying a double chin. Start with sitting on the floor in sukhasana or the very simple lotus pose. Take a deep breath and put your palms on both of your knees. Raise your shoulders and lean your whole body ahead a bit. Now, bend your chin downwards so that it touches your chest or remains in between your collar bones. Press it firmly in order to keep the oesophagus completely closed. You need to retain your breath for some time. Once you feel uncomfortable, release it by lifting your head and getting back to the initial position.

3. Locked Tongue

Locked Tongue

The locked tongue pose is also quite popular as jivha bandha. It is an excellent facial yoga exercise that can shape up our jaw line and give our face a slimmer as well as sharper look. It not only aids in toning facial muscles, but also boosts the circulation of blood throughout our face. At first, you need to sit straight on the ground in padmasana by keeping your legs crossed one over another. Place both of your hands on your lap and just relax. Now, roll your tongue up and touch the upper palate of your mouth with its tip. Try to open your mouth as wide as possible by holding the tongue in this position. You should feel extreme stretch in your throat and face. Retain the pose until you feel uncomfortable and keep inhaling with your nose.
