“Ugh, I’m starting to notice wrinkles,” a client frequently tells me. As a yogi and a new parent approaching 35, I completely understand. This is why I’ve been experimenting with healthy options to smooth fine lines and slow the aging process. If you want a more natural strategy that reduces toxin and chemical exposure while increasing collagen formation, I strongly suggest including these facial yoga movements into your daily practice.
First and foremost, what exactly is face yoga? It is the activity of activating, massaging, and extending the facial muscles and skin while also stimulating the lymphatic system. Face yoga, like regular yoga, may be an excellent technique for promoting lifespan and reducing inflammation. Here are the top 5 face yoga exercises for a more toned, youthful appearance. For a full yoga face sequence, repeat each technique 10 to 15 times. Next, make sure to read The 6 Best Exercises for Strong and Toned Arms in 2022, According to a Trainer.
This workout is for you if you have lines across your brow. Make a fist with both hands, then move your fingers and knuckles horizontally from the center of your forehead to your hairline.
Diminish “11” Lines
Are you starting to see those little vertical lines between your eyes? Try it out. Hook your finger and massage it across your forehead, from your brow to your hairline. This should be done throughout the area between your eyes.
Press your index fingers on either side of your nasal bridge to hold your brows in place. Take a breath here, then sweep your fingers over the brow line to trace and massage.
Want contoured, lively cheeks? If so, softly glide your fingers from your chin to your jaw with your index and middle fingers. Sweep this motion up the cheek towards the cheekbone.
If you’re carrying all of your tension in your neck these days, this exercise will provide much-needed relaxation. Turn your head 45 degrees and pucker your lips. Then, with the same hand as the side of the neck you’re extending, create a fist and gently glide your knuckles from your jaw down to your neckline. Rep on the opposite side.
(Note: Use a clean face and hands, and apply face oil so your hands glide across your skin.) This performance can also be performed using a gua sha.
