We’re going to talk about something that you may or may not be familiar with but soon will be a part of your everyday routine. Skincare is a crucial part of your everyday routine because you mainly need skincare to keep your skin radiant, youthful, and healthy but there is only so much that skincare can do even with anti-aging products in order to keep your skin looking young. So if you’ve ever wondered how your favorite celebs manage to look the same if not even younger than they did 10 years ago, well the answer to that is face yoga. This yoga basically turns back the clock and brings back the elasticity and plumpness into your face.
Face yoga is basically exercising the muscles in your face to enlarge and strengthen them. It consists of gently massaging, stretching, or working out your muscles by holding different facial expressions. Our body is composed of muscles and we regularly exercise those muscles in order to stay healthy but why don’t we do the same for our face? Over time the muscles in our body deteriorate mainly because we don’t use them and the same can happen to our facial muscles as well. This is what causes fine lines and wrinkles to form in your face mainly because you lose the elasticity and volume as the muscles in your face begin to kind of die out. Correctly working the different layers of your skin increases the blood circulation which allows oxygen and nourishment to reach the cells of your skin, fat, and muscles. This also stimulates collagen production which can lead to healthier and younger-looking skin. Face yoga comes in many different forms such as stretching, relaxing, or tightening the different parts of your face and this can activate the lymphatic system which flushes out toxins and bad fluids that cause bloating. So if you’re wondering, ‘do I really need a professional to help me do face yoga’, the answer to that is NO! All you need is a moisturizer or face oil, a clean face, and your hands. Here are 5 face yoga routines that you can do at home. Just pick and choose which one you might need and then go along with that.
