Hi everyone!
I've been an avid reader of this frum for some time, but this is my first post here Smile

My problem is that my face is quite narrow and longish, which I'm not really happy with. Has anyone of you who do face exercises found any exercise that seemed to make your face look wider at the cheekbones or jaw? I mean the very outer part of the cheekbones and the jaw, close to the ears.

If anyone has any other suggestions about how to make the face wider that isn't exercises I would love to hear about that to Smile

Yep, facial exercises can help with that quite a bit, but of course, your results and how much you can achieve is based on your bone structure. For example, if you have a narrow jaw, you can build your jaw muscles with exercises, but you're never going to have a strong bulldog jaw that many men want.

You want to train all muscles of the face, since they are interconnected and it's important to achieve a balanced look. Some people ignore this advice (as you can see from some posts on EDS), run into problems, and then claim that facial exercises don't work or that they ran into awkward stages. So what I am saying is that it's important to train ALL the facial muscles. But if in the long-term you want to train some muscles more than others, the muscles that will likely most help give the appearance of a wider face are the cheeks (there are 6 muscles in total), the masseter, platysma, and temporalis.

Make sure you get a good facial exercise program, too, and really commit to it. I like FlexEffect best, but each EDS member usually has their own favorite program or combination of programs. It would be worth reading through the threads on facial exercises.

Thank you both so much for your answers, I will definitely look more into facial exercises Smile I have been afraid that they would slim my face even more though and that's the last thing I want!
