The muscles of your face are interconnected beneath your skin. Facial exercises are done to stimulate blood flow and circulation, reduce sagging skin and tone your face muscles for a more youthful appearance. Face exercises for the cheekbones can help tone loose cheek skin and give you prominent cheekbones.

Lips

Perform this exercise daily to help promote smooth skin and toned cheek muscles. Extend your lips out, making a round shape with them. Keep your mouth stretching outward, then smile as wide as you can. Pause for one second, then return to the round shape. Repeat 10 times.

Mouth

This exercise helps tighten the skin on your cheeks in order to make your cheekbones appear more prominent. Sit straight up with your mouth lightly closed, but not pursed. Pucker your lips, using your cheek muscles to pout. Keep puckering for 10 seconds, then relax. You can hold your fingers on your cheeks so you feel the cheek muscles contracting. Repeat 10 times.

Cheeks

Hanging skin will age your face. Using this exercise to tense and contract your cheek muscles will help your cheekbones look stronger. Close your mouth and smile slightly. Suck your cheeks deep in your mouth toward your teeth. Hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Repeat 10 times.

Smile

This exercise will help lift and firm your cheeks so you look younger. You should look in the mirror while doing the exercise in order to make sure you are doing it correctly. Smile as hard as you can, keeping your mouth closed and the corners of your mouth contracting as you smile hard. Wrinkle your nose as you look in the mirror. You should be able to see your cheek muscles moving up as the muscles work. Hold for 5 seconds, then relax. Repeat 10 times.

Cheekbones

You should perform this exercise to stimulate blood flow and circulation and tighten slack cheek muscles. Tilt your head up to the ceiling. Place your three center fingers on your cheeks and push down, simultaneously lifting your cheeks by smiling as hard as possible. You should be able to feel your mouth pressing against your fingers.
