Whenever exercising is mentioned or heard, many would instantly think of their bodies. While it is true, it is also important not to forget your face. Other than using different creams or moisturizers to achieve healthy glowing skin, it is also important that you do different facial exercises. Well-known personalities have claimed that doing facial exercises daily helps them alleviate wrinkling and looking aged. They add these exercises to their usual facials and skincare routines.
Although many celebrities and personalities have sworn that doing facial exercises helps lessen their wrinkles or reduce fat, researchers say the opposite. Despite this, you can still try doing facial exercises yourself as it is another way to massage your facial muscles. Other than smiling or chewing, facial exercises or stretches can help reduce stress.
Facial exercises usually involve different hand or finger motions on the skin of your face. These exercises are now being called facial yoga. Similar to the yoga you practice for your body, facial yoga allows you to feel the stretches of your skin, as well as massage any tensed muscles. Perhaps you have frowned a lot on a bad or frustrating day, you’ve laughed or smiled too widely on a good day - these can put a bit of a strain on your facial muscles. Doing facial yoga will lessen these aches or pains from overstretching and the likes.
