When these muscles are worked, the small eyelid muscles are also worked, preventing hooded eyelids. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The muscle that surrounds the mouth - When this muscle is worked correctly, other smaller muscles of expression are also worked. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The muscle of the chin . When this muscle is exercised, the muscles at the front of the neck will also be brought into play. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The muscles at the front of the neck. These muscles when they are toned up give a vigorous, vibrant, youthful appearance to a person. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The jaw muscles .
