Being hailed as the beauty trend of the moment, face yoga not only reduces wrinkles, firms jawlines but also creates a healthy glow as well as eases headaches and eye strain.
How it works
Face yoga or facial poses work the facial muscles and help tighten them. The movements also help relax the overused muscles such as the muscles around the eyebrows, jaw, and mouth. This also encourages the production of collagen, the protein that keeps skin elastic, giving you a smoother and more supple skin.
Puff up your cheeks
To practice this pose, you’ll have to puff out both of your cheeks and shift the air in your mouth from one cheek to the other, do this at least 5 times. Then release air while making a small “O”. Repeat the exercise 5 times to keep your cheeks firm.
Stick your tongue out
Stick your tongue out as far as it will go, and hold this for a while. Repeat 5 times.
Look up at the ceiling
Look up and open your mouth. Hold for 5 seconds, and repeat 5 times. This pose will tone your double chin and strengthen the muscles in your neck. Return to a neutral position to continue the exercise every time.
Smooth the forehead
Place both hands on the forehead facing inwards and spread all of the fingers out on your forehead. Gently sweep the fingers outwards across the forehead to tighten the skin. Relax and repeat 5 times. You can alternatively also do the same by curling your hands into a fist.
