How To Do Face Yoga To Lift Your Face
Yoga has officially gone from being the hobby of mums to a full-time lifestyle trend – yoga is officially cool! But it’s no surprise; it’s healing for both your body and mind; there’s nothing to unwind your day like doing a quick Sun Salutations routine.
WHY YOU NEED TO DO YOGA?
Well, that’s exactly what everyone’s fav anti-aging treatment, Botox, does – it effectively disables your muscles so you can’t create frown-inducing expressions. Therefore, more relaxed muscles, particularly in areas where you typically have tension, will mean that you’re less likely to create wrinkle-triggering frowns and expressions every day – less of those, equals fewer wrinkles.
Minimize forehead lines:
Channel the facial expression you made when you first heard that Beyoncé and Jay-Z released a joint album. Widen your eyes as much as you can and raise your eyebrows – not so high that you get lots of creases. Hold this pose for 30 seconds and repeat four more times. This pose exercises the muscles around your eyes and forehead.
Plump your pout:
Not strictly a ‘pout,’ but more of a fish face. Suck your cheeks in as much as you can while exposing your cheekbones and pursing your lips. This one takes some practice, but you’ll get there! Doing this exercise will enhance your pout and pump blood to the area – giving you great circulation as well as plump lips.
Avoid a sagging jawline
Also known as ‘The Blowfish,’ just puff your cheeks out as much as possible while passing the air from one cheek to the other. This strengthens your cheek muscles and helps prevent them from drooping or thinning. You may want to make sure you’re in an isolated area for this one.
Tighten your eyelids
Sagging lids? Don’t sweat it. For eyes that don’t carry a lot of excess baggage, try this: rest your index fingers under your eyes (on your lower eye-socket bone), look up, and blink as quickly as possible. Apply slight pressure with your fingers but don’t push – your lids are super sensitive and you need to be gentle with them
Dodge a saggy neck
Every morning and night while we moisturize our necks, and it takes five seconds! Just tilt your neck up to the ceiling so you can feel it stretching, and ‘kiss it’ five times, then turn your neck up and left and do the same ceiling kiss five times, then repeat on your right side.
We hope you enjoyed reading and will definitely try these exercises.
