HACKS THAT WORK MAGIC
Have all your selfies sprouted second chins lately? Thankfully, neck and chin toning can be achieved without surgery – all it takes is adding a few targeted exercises to your workout. Over time, skin loses collagen and elasticity, causing it to sag around the neck and chin, a process that begins around age 20. Factors like sun exposure, smoking and poor diet can intensify the process. Two main muscles – the sternocleidomastoid and platysma – make up your neck, and toning them can help pull the overlaying skin tighter for a younger, healthier look. To achieve results, try these exercises that are designed to help return your neck to its former glory!

Looking straight ahead, stick your tongue out as far as you can.
Lift your tongue upwards towards your nose.
Hold for 10 seconds and release.
Give the muscles of the upper and middle portion of your cheeks a good workout by performing this exercise. With your lips closed, puff your cheeks with air. Alternately move this air from one cheek to the other while holding the air in each cheek for five seconds.
