Before you go under the knife, give the following simple yet effective facial yoga steps a try. These are known to be really helpful in reducing that turkey-look and that too without any hassle. Have a look:

Turkey Neck

Step 1

Stand upright on the floor by keeping shoulders down and leaving hands loose beside the body. Make a pout with your lips and hold it for quite a few seconds. Breathe in deeply with the help of your nose. At the same time, look over your right shoulder and rotate the head gradually. Stay in that position for several seconds and then relax. Repeat the step at least 20 to 30 times a day by changing the sides.

Step 2

Start with sitting straight in a chair. Now, tilt your head backward bit by bit while keeping your lips loosely closed. As soon as your eyes reach the ceiling, pucker the lips in such a way that you are throwing a kiss to the ceiling. Stay still in this position for several seconds. After that, relax. Practice this 10 to 20 times a day.

Step 3

In this step, you have to bring your lips into a pout. Your lower lip should be lifted up to the point where you have made the pouting expression. Now, bring your jaw down while holding this position and keeping the face at a standstill. After a few seconds, relax and get back to the initial position. Repeat it at least 20 to 30 times every day.

Step 4

Move your head to the right side of your body and hold the position. Now, start moving your lips and jaw in such a manner that you are chewing a gum. Do this at least for 20 times. After that, change the side and repeat the step. You can also lean your head at the backside and stare at the ceiling while moving your mouth.

Step 5

Stretch out your body on the floor. Your hands should be bowed in the direction of your shoulders. Now, push the middle portion of your body up as if you are trying to get into the reverse ‘C’ position. Make sure that you bend your chin outward simultaneously. Stay in this posture for a few seconds and then relax. Repeat it at least 20 times a day.


Step 6

Start with tilting your head toward the back and looking right at the ceiling of the room. Attach your tongue with the roof of your mouth and swallow. Now, lean towards the right side of your body and swallow. Again, lean towards the left and swallow. You need to keep your tongue in the same position all through the work out.

Stand straight while keeping your mouth closed and the teeth inside it separated. Make sure that the position of both your head and neck are neutral. Now, push your jaw to the fore and wait for minimum 10 seconds. Practice the step 10 to 15 times daily.

Step 8

Push your lower lip up and place it over your upper lip. While doing this, smile gently as well as widen your chin by moving it in an upward direction. Stay in this position for 10 seconds and then relax. Repeat it more or less 15 times a day in order to get the best results.
