If you’re looking to erase years from your face without costly plastic surgery or potentially dangerous treatments such as Botox, face yoga may be the anti-aging treatment you’ve been looking for.
Face yoga is rapidly becoming the anti-aging treatment of choice for many; it has the same benefits as yoga, but it relaxes and tones the muscles of your face.
Since yoga is used as a relaxation technique, proponents of face yoga say that it helps to relax tense muscles that can contribute to the formation of wrinkles, giving you many of the benefits of a facelift or Botox injections by keeping your face nice and smooth.
Face yoga targets the muscles of the face that hold tension, specifically the jaw, brow, and forehead. If you do the following exercises on a daily basis, you may be able to counteract the effects of all the facial expressions we make on a daily basis that can contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
While face yoga won’t completely erase the look of wrinkles, there are six easy steps you can follow to look years younger without resorting to plastic surgery or Botox.
Yoga for Facial Skin Tightening
Eliminate Wrinkles with Smooth Forehead Yoga
To perform this face yoga exercise, widen your eyes to expose as much of the whites of your eyes as is possible. Hold this position until your eyes start to water (about 60 seconds).
Now, a face yoga exercise that makes your eyes water may not seem like the best way to eliminate wrinkles, but this is actually a highly beneficial exercise, as you are working the muscles around your eyes and forehead, erasing the effects of squinting by performing an exercise that does the exact opposite. As an added bonus, causing your eyes to water will remove toxins from your system.
Strengthens Cheek Muscles with Firm Cheeks Yoga Exercise
This face yoga exercise is quite simple to perform. Just take a big breath through your mouth and hold it so your cheeks are puffed out. After a few seconds, release the breath.
This cheek-firming face yoga exercise strengthens cheek muscles and prevents your cheeks from appearing thinner, which contributes to the hollow look you see on many people as they approach middle-age.
