Simple face yoga exercises
These exercises help wake up the sleeping muscles of the face and smooth out wrinkles caused by overworked muscle groups.
Squeeze your hands into two fists and place them on the center of your forehead. Gently rub 2 fists from the center of the forehead to the temples. Finish the upper movement by gently pressing your fists into the sides of your temples. When performing, you will feel the muscles in the forehead area relax. This exercise helps you remove the tension on your face caused by sitting for too long in front of the computer screen.
Exercise to slim the chin area
Lower your shoulders and relax. Lift your chin upwards until you feel the skin of your neck and chin stretch. Then alternately do the speculum and stick your tongue out, holding each position for 5 seconds. Repeat the movement three times, making sure your chin, neck, and back are always aligned. The exercise reduces the fat in the chin, and the contours of your jaw will become more apparent.
Exercises to improve laugh lines
The smile line is a concave line on either side of the mouth that extends from the edge of the nose to the outer corner of the mouth. These folds also tend to deepen with age. Doing the following exercise will help you prevent the wrinkles caused by laugh lines.
Place your tongue just below where the smile line begins, i.e., inside your mouth. Then make a circle with the tounge. Make five circles clockwise and counterclockwise on each side. This will help lift the folds of the smile line, and your skin will improve.
Exercises for firm cheeks
Start with pursed lips to the left side and feel your cheeks being lifted. While pursed lips, face up to the left at a 45-degree angle. Hold this position for 5 seconds and do the same with the other side. Do it 3-5 times a day to get rid of sagging cheeks that make you look a few years younger.
Exercises to prevent eye wrinkles and crow’s feet
Straighten your back and keep your shoulders relaxed. Open your mouth moderately and press your lips tightly against your teeth to form an oval. Hold the position and look up with only your eyes; you should feel the skin tightening around the eyes. Be careful not to move your head and shoulders when performing. Hold the movement for 3-5 seconds and only do it once a day. Otherwise, your muscles and skin will be overstretched, which is not suitable for skin health.
