Fix Bulldog Cheeks

Hi everyone. Today, I would like to talk about how to fix bulldog cheeks. Bulldog cheeks are so cute for dog, but not for humans so much so we gonna do the exercise. This is one of the classic exercise that I have been doing for the many, many, many years, more than 10 years, 32, 42, 31, and 42. And I was doing that exercise that I'm gonna introduce today. Um, every time I go to restroom when I was working for a corporate office, not for office, but in the office, I was working for corporate in Tokyo, Japan, and yeah, I was doing that exercise every time I go to the restroom. Let's do it. Exercise number one, you wanna stretch the skin the cheek area to one side and then lift up this area Like this one, like this yeah.

So you are stretching this side and then lifting up this side then one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. So when you do it, it should not be down, it should be up because you're really lifting up here right. So this is a great exercise to really, um, training your facial muscle like this here and then stretch. This is the part stretching train, training stretch, training stretch. That's a key for elastic skin, the repetition. Yeah. So now we gonna do this side of course. Stretch and training up like this one, two, three, four, five, six, eight, nine, ten, relax. And then, uh, one thing I like to mention is when you do this, you cause wrinkle right? A little bit here, and a little bit here too.

So if you're concern about wrinkle, use your finger to prevent the line, stop it. And then if you are causing crow's feet like this, and then you, you can do like this. In addition to this in general, this crow's feet you wanna stop it. If you, if it happens, this one it caused wrinkles but if you're younger people 20, 30, 80's um not 80's, 20, um, teenager or twenties, thirties, or early forties, around that time, you don't really use one finger you don't have to. I mean, you can do it, but I just feel like it's easier. If you can do this when you're driving or walking and you cannot do this right when you're walking or cooking. So don't worry about too much yet because this vertical line can happen when you are 90 years old, you are very, very mature. And then you might wanna worry about it, but because you do this side and you do this side and then your stretching right, and then again, training, stretch, training, stretch. That's a key for elastic muscle, elastic skin cause elastic muscle create elastic skin. So you don't have to worry about too much that lines, but if you're worried about it, you can use this.

But if you're causing the line, the cross feet I would encourage you to stop it because this is a folded line that the more you do it, um, it, uh, shows here, which is not good. And I did a video about, um, I think it's like this ironing technique. If you haven't checked that, please check it out. That's it, actually that's it super easy but let's do one more time. One time and then do you feel like either side it's little bit tighter. Like when I do it, this is easier for me, and when I do the a little bit tighter because I have a bad habit to do. My face is like this, my shoulder is up and my head It's like this, that's my bad tendency habit that I'm trying to fix as far as still have a little bit tightness here when I do this here, then that's the case.

You guys know which one is more tight right? And then do the tighter side one more. I get often question that um when I say do the tighter side one more, do the difficult side one more, people ask me my this side is saggy so should I do the saggy side? The answer doesn't matter because the reason of the saggy might, we don't know the reason cause I don't know you because I cannot see you. And so, um, doesn't matter which side is more saggy or up because I think I feel this is more saggy and this is more up, but I feel tighter on this side. So I should stretch this one more, so doesn't matter which side is saggy or not the thing you wanna know is which side is tighter or not. So you do the tighter side one more. So as i set let's do first one, is tighter side. Tighter side yeah, difficult side.

And then one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. And then do the other side one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. And then do the tighter side to finish up. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten like this. And then because this is kind of a lot of stretch, a lot of stretch. Just reduced the tension, just don't do this in front of people because of COVID. Not because of just COVID the more relaxed cheek vibration the better. If you have TMJ pain, jaw pain, grinding, clenching or those issues n the jawline here. You might not want to do too much stretch be careful if you do too much, and then you might feel clicking sound that's too much be careful. You wanna do a little light stretch. I'm doing a lot because I don't have any problem. I'm used to it. Yeah. But if you're a beginner and you've never done it, and if you have that issue, you really wanna careful, like uh know your limit don't do that's too much for you. You wanna do this exercise one or two or three times per day. And each one is one set of ten seconds, ten seconds, ten seconds. So let's do one more time. First, know your tighter side, difficult side to stretch. You might guess this side. So and then this side is lifting up and this is stretch.

And then, if you worry about the wrinkle, you can use finger to prevent it. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and when you do it, people tend to be like, tend to do like this head is rotated, head straight always only the mouth is up and we are just position but head is straight and then yeah, ten seconds and then finish up the tighter side, tighter stretch like this, and then relax, cheek vibration to release the tension.
