Have you heard of face yoga, a new way to keep skin looking younger, firmer, and healthier? Read on to discover tips and benefits of this trending, new practice.
THE FOREHEAD DAB
For preventing and reducing forehead lines, the forehead dab is key.
Benefits: Relaxing the frontalis muscle of the forehead means less tension. This exercise also improves circulation, keeping the skin refreshed and glowing.
Top Tip: Use this exercise to practice keeping the forehead still while widening the eyes – a great way to avoid expression lines.
THE EYEBROW LIFT
This move is used for reducing and preventing hooded eyes.
Benefits: The muscles in the forehead work against the resistance of the finger, which helps to build strength and tone.
Top Tip: Because this exercise asks to raise the eyebrows, it should be followed by a forehead massage to ensure that the forehead muscle is relaxed following the exercise.
For reducing and preventing lines between the eyebrows, the butterfly is ideal.
Benefits: The massaging action helps to relieve tension in the procerus muscle, which runs between the eyebrows, which can prevent lines being formed.
Top Tip: Try not to drag the skin too much with this exercise.
The thinker is great for preventing and reducing a double chin.
Benefits: This exercise works on toning and strengthening many of the lower face muscles and the fist acts as resistance to work the muscles in the lower jaw area.
Top Tip: If it feels more comfortable, rest the elbow on a table.
