7. DRINK WATER FOR A CHISELED JAWLINE
As iterated many times before, drinking water improves your overall health. It helps in weight loss, increases your energy levels, prevents dehydration, and also flushes toxins from your body.
The toxin retention in your body is also reflected on your face. Drinking more water flushes these toxins, giving your face a fresher, healthier glow and sharp facial features.
Drinking water doesn’t affect your jawline directly, but indirectly it works wonders on your overall well being and helps you in achieving that chiseled jawline.
8. PRONOUNCE YOUR VOWELS
It’s as simple as ‘A E I O U’!
Pronounce the vowels, – ‘A E I O U’ clearly. Hit all the notes, and work all the muscles involved by doing so. Don’t be afraid of exaggerating!
The movement of your jaw while pronouncing these vowels targets the muscles around your mouth and the sides of your lips. Practicing this workout often will sharpen your jawline.
9. LESS SALT CONSUMPTION
How much salt do you consume in a day?
On an average, Indians consume about 3800mg of salt per day, and according to the dietary guidelines, salt consumption in a day should be limited to about 2500mg per day.
Most of our salt intake comes from engaging ourselves in the Modern Diet, which is abundant in salt. Not only is this unhealthy for your skin, but also unhealthy for your body.
Limiting your salt intake reduces water retention which makes you look less bloated and gives your jawline more defined.
Replace oily and salty foods like salted snacks, junk food, etc. with raw fruits and vegetables. Don’t stop your salt intake, just reduce it.
10. EATING HEALTHY, SLEEPING HEALTHY, STAYING HEALTHY

To improve your overall physique it is best to cut down on carbs and add more fiber and proteins to your diet.

THE BOTTOM LINE

The above exercises will not only sharpen your jawline but will also prevent headache, neck pain, and jaw pain. However, while performing any of them, if you feel any pain, please stop right away. You may try them again after a few days. The pain most likely means you are not performing them the right way. So, read up on the instructions and follow them accurately.
