One facial exercise is called the cheeky face. In your chair, make sure that you are sitting as straight as you can. Inhale very deeply and push your cheeks out as far as you can. You will look like a blow fish, so don't panic. Move the air from your left cheek to your right. Keep doing this for about 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat this action about 10 times.
Another exercise that you can do for your face is called the surprise. It sounds the way it looks too. If you know what a surprised face looks like, this one should be easy for you. Raise your eyebrows as high as you can and open your mouth as wide as you can. Hold this face for about 5 seconds and do this exercise about ten times. This will help to tighten the skin around your eyes and forehead,.
