Whenever FashionTV shows the behind-the-scenes of fashion shows, do you ever wonder why are the supermodels constantly chewing on gum? It’s like the trade’s candy!
The action of chewing actually serves as a form of exercise for our jaws. Jaw movement promotes facial exercise which not only helps to relax the body and increase blood circulation, it also tones up facial muscles.
Perhaps models do know about this – the habitual practice that keeps their face looking slim, toned and elongated.
Facial exercises can help to :- Reduce stiffness from face
- Reduce formation of wrinkles
- Increases elasticity of skin
- Keep skin muscles in place
- Maintains skin tissues from premature aging
If losing weight is your purpose, chewing gum can help you lose weight! Choose sugarless gum (if you don’t want to promote tooth decay), if you get the craving to pop something into your mouth. Chewing helps curb your appetite and gives your mouth something to do, besides snacking in between meals.
Ironically, smoking has almost the same effect. As you inhale, the sucking motion works your facial muscles as well, though lesser than chewing gum. Do not get me wrong, I DO NOT, i repeat, DO NOT promote smoking and I definitely do not approve of people picking up that habit. If ever you have the urge to puff, perhaps pick up a gum and chew.

Remember, after you chew, dispose of your gum properly. Be responsible socially.
