Hi everyone, Liz here (+1 662 830 8246, email@example.com)
Yoga exercises for your face are of great benefit for your overall body and inner harmony, as well as for your facial skin. Do you dream of smooth skin without wrinkles and fine lines? Try these simple but effective yoga facial exercises that are described in further detail down below!
How is Yoga For Your Face an Out of This World Experience?
Yoga has been around for centuries and has some great benefits for your mind and soul, but can also benefit your skin. There are over 50 different muscles on our faces that need regular exercise and the effect is smooth and firm skin that defies the signs of time.
Regular exercise increases blood circulation and supplies skin cells with the nutrients needed to stimulate cell renewal. The result is healthy and fresh skin.
How often should I do the exercises?
You will get the fastest results if you do the exercises 3 to 5 times a week for at least 20 minutes. The advantage of facial yoga is that you can do exercises practically anywhere and anytime which is very practical during the covid-19 work from home era. For an extra relaxing effect, exercise in a supine position.
What are the effect of yoga exercises for the face?
Face yoga not only feels good, but it’s virtually free, and it makes your skin look better. A few minutes in the morning or evening is all it takes to have better skin! Focusing on your breath maximizes results, and relaxing the face, neck, and shoulders is also key. It’s important to make sure your skin’s very well hydrate beforehand.
Cleaning your face with a hydrating cleanser and putting on a hydrating moisturizer such as squalane oil before face yoga works in a couple of beneficial ways as it keeps your skin soft while you’re stretching it, and it also helps the active ingredients and benefits of serums applied beforehand penetrate deeper into the sebum. Its best to start with a lightweight serum such as Naked Actives Vitamin C Serum, then pat on eye cream, followed by a thin layer of the moisturizer. Now you’re ready for your warm-up! Use both hands and with medium pressure, start by tapping your fingertips from forehead to the neck, making sure you cover the entire face. Do this once. Next stretch your head and neck forward and back. Then stretch the mouth by opening wide, then closing it three times. This helps to relax all the facial muscles.
This motion relaxes the front forehead muscle and removes tension in the area: Make a fist with both hands and place them in the center of the forehead. Apply firm pressure and slide fists to the sides.
Neck and Jawline
Turn your chin to the upper right side at a forty-five-degree angle. Squeeze your mouth as if you were going to kiss someone. Hold for five seconds and relax. Repeat five times. And then do the same action on the left side.
Yoga for Eyebrow Lines
“This move relaxes the eyelids muscle, reducing tension that causes fine lines between the eyebrows: Place index and middle finger at the innermost corner of the eyebrows. Apply firm pressure, then begin to spread fingers slightly apart horizontally. Take a deep breath in and slowly frown while breathing out for a count of five. Feel the resistance of the muscles underneath your fingertips. The key for this pose is not to try too hard. Make sure your forehead is relaxed.”
Yoga for Crow’s-Feet
This move works the outer corners and lower section of the T zone and addresses the fine lines around the eyes: Place the middle and index finger just above the temples, close to the hairline, and pull up to feel the stretch. Without moving the forehead, squint for five seconds and relax.
Yoga for Laugh Lines
Place both palms on the temples and pull upward. Make an O shape with your mouth, then stretch your face long at the same time. Press the upper mouth firmly against the teeth. Hold this pose for five seconds and relax. Make sure your shoulders are relaxed, and keep breathing.”
Repeat all exercises three to five times and you can increase the number as you progress into your personal routine and choose the time that works for you,
The Final Touch of your face yoga ritual is to finish off by cooling down, so using both hands gently tap your fingertips from the top of your head all the way down to the neck to add the finishing touch of a master yoga and relax all the facial muscles that have just been moved.
Stay Healthy Everyone and Find Your Inner Peace!
