We are aware that exercise is healthy for the body, but what about the face? You’d think that talking, chewing, and expressing our emotions would be sufficient to maintain a toned face. How else can we help? Many people believe that the only options for changing your look are plastic surgery, fillers, or Botox. As it happens, yoga is a different, non-invasive solution. There is yoga for your face as well as your body. And the outcomes are so spectacular that you’ll forget all about intrusive beauty procedures once you see them. Curious? So, feel free to give it a shot.
1. A slick forehead
Try this facial yoga exercise if you discover that you frown frequently or can already notice the onset of those forehead wrinkles while your face is in a neutral position. Try to open your eyes as wide as you can without raising your brows to show that you are astonished. Hold that for ten to fifteen seconds, then let go. Your forehead and the muscles around your eyes are toned by this workout. When you have the time, repeat that a few times each day, and you should start to feel better in about ten days.
2. Clear Eyes
There is a facial yoga technique to help if your eyelids are starting to droop or you notice bags forming under them. Put your index fingers on the outermost part of your brows and both of your middle fingers on the inner corner. Apply little pressure—enough to feel a little pressure, but not so much that it hurts or is uncomfortable. Squint your eyes while looking up. Your lower eyelids should start to flutter as you squint. Six times through this squint, squeeze your eyes shut for ten seconds to finish the exercise. This ought to assist you in reducing the appearance of puffiness, droopy eyelids, and under-eye bags.
3. Firm Cheekbones
People often have such droopy or hollow cheeks as they age. Try this simple facial workout to tone up your cheeks if you don’t want it to happen. Form a tube with your lips as you take a deep breath in, blow out your cheeks, hold your breath for a moment, and then let it out. You’ll start to feel it in your cheeks after doing this a few times. Yes, it is goofy, but it gives your face a workout.
4. Beautiful Smile
We all get laugh lines, so it’s really not a huge concern. However, if you want to minimize their appearance, tone your cheeks a little more, and maintain firm, plump skin, you might benefit from this practice. Make an O shape with your mouth and cover your lips with your teeth. Now grin while maintaining that position of your lips over your teeth. Repeat this around six times, or until you can feel the effect on your lips and cheeks.
5. No Double Chins, please
Here’s a quick and simple method to tighten any loose skin around the chin or get rid of a double chin. All you have to do is tilt your head up, smile, and swallow while pressing your entire tongue, not just the tip, to the roof of your mouth. Although it seems simple, doing it is actually quite difficult. Try it; we bet you’ll experience it right away. But make an effort to perform 5–10 repeats.
6. Swan Neck
Turtlenecks may be able to conceal your drooping skin, but it would be preferable to just tighten the skin with a straightforward exercise so your neck resembles a swan rather than a turtle. Put your fingertips at the base of your neck and gently press down to create a pressure point and maintain the skin’s position. Now thrust out your bottom lip and lean your head back as far as you can. For five full breaths, hold that. Relax. 5. Repetition.
7. That Jawline
There is a facial yoga workout for getting the ideal jawline. You should feel the stretch in your cheek if you purse your lips to the side and make the “I’m not sure about this” face. Now lift your face up at a 45 degree angle and turn your head in the same direction. You can also feel a stretch in your neck. Hold for a few seconds before relaxing. Repeat three more times on each side.
