Practice chin exercises
There are many helpful exercises that can help with the problem. For a start open your mouth wide, move your lower jaw in downward and outward direction, as though you are scooping something with your lower jaw. Once you feel your lower teeth touch your upper lip, that means you have completed the exercise correctly. You can repeat this several times a day.
Another easy way is imitating chewing. Simply move your mouth by opening and closing it, and you will notice your muscles on the neck and jaw start working. Or, to look more natural, you can take a chewing gum instead.
You can also try rotating and twisting your head gently from one side of your shoulder to the other. An easier exercise is to open your mouth as wide as you can and hold it that way for around 10 seconds. Repeat the action for several times.
