4 YOGA Exercises For A Younger Face

Yoga for your face? Hell yes! And that really goes a bit further than ‘pulling crazy pelvis.’ Gary Sikorski is the founder of Happy Face Yoga, he swears by a good workout for a younger-looking face.

According to Sikorski, you can already see results after a month or two. The so-called resistance training for the muscles in your face provides an optical facelift. By training the muscles just under your skin and in the places where fat accumulates, wrinkles are less likely.

 The results were unmistakable in 27 subjects who did half an hour of face yoga exercise every day for 8 weeks and then every other week for another 12 weeks. Their skin looked healthier and firmer, and the healthy blush on the cheeks also worked wonders.

Experts say that with the good workouts you even need fewer fillers for the same result, or that the result of the fillers is much better. So there is nothing to lose!

He shared these 4 exercises on Gwyneth Paltrow’s online platform Goop. Mind you, you really only see results after a few weeks, and your lifestyle (smoking, drinking, sun) also has an impact, but this seems to us to be a typical case that does not benefit, then it does no harm.

 

  1. THE ADVANCED FACE FIRMER

Good to train all over your face and especially the three main muscle groups in your face (just above your ears/jaws, around your eyes and cheeks). This exercise works best when you are lying down (and nobody else is around, because it looks a bit crazy).

 

  • Make a big ‘O’with your mouth and’ fold ‘your lower and upper lip over your teeth.
  • Laugh at the corners of your mouth, you can really feel the muscles around your cheekbones.
  • Place your palms on your cheeks with your small finger resting on the corners of your eyes. Then press both temples with your fingers. Pull your fingers up behind your head. This will pull your eyes up and out.
  • Close your eyes, and put your chin forward. You now feel the pressure on the corners of your eyes increasing, and your cheeks are also put to work.
  • Hold for 20 seconds and release.

 

  1. THE HAPPY FACE LIFTER

Good for the blood circulation in the muscles of your face, neck, and skull. In addition, this exercise is good as a ‘stress reliever’ and good for your vitality. This exercise has the best standing results.

 

  • Make a big ‘O’with your mouth and’ fold ‘your lower and upper lip over your teeth.
  • Laugh at the corners of your mouth; you can really feel the muscles around your cheekbones.
  • Close your eyes and roll up with your eyeball. Make the ‘O’ with your mouth as small as possible. Now you can smile again with the corners of your mouth, your cheek muscles work well and slowly bend your head back.
  • Tighten your abs and gluts, aim your chest upwards.
  • Slowly lift your hands above your head and remember to pull all those 57 facial muscles up to the ceiling. Take a deep breath in and out.
  • Hold for 30 seconds.
  • Exhale and lower your hands and bend your head forward again.

Do this exercise twice a day, for example, when you are just awake and just before going to bed.

 

  1. THE JAW AND NECK FIRMER

Good for strengthening the muscles around your chin. Helps against sagging cheeks and those wrinkled wrinkles in your neck, it also strengthens your jaw muscles.

 

  • Start with a big smile.
  • Open your mouth and make an ‘aaaah’ sound. Fold your lower lip inward. Put your jaw forward.
  • Make some kind of ‘scooping’ movement with your jaw, and lift your chin to the air. This will lower your head backward.
  • Now open and close your jaw 10 times. The last time, your chin should almost point to the ceiling.
  • Hold this position for 20 seconds.

Repeat twice.

 

  1. THE CHEEK LIFTER

Gravity pulls our cheeks down, as it were. With this exercise, you reverse that effect. And your upper lip also benefits.

 

  • Make a big ‘O’with your mouth and’ fold ‘your lower and upper lip over your teeth.
  • Laugh at the corners of your mouth, you can really feel the muscles around your cheekbones.
  • Gently place your index fingers on the top of your cheek muscles, just below your eyes. Relax your cheeks.
  • Now smile again and visualize pushing your muscles up towards your eyes. This was one push up.
  • Do 10 more of these push-ups.
  • After the last push-up, keep your cheek muscles as high as possible.
  • Run your index fingers over your skull. This way, you ‘pull’ your cheek muscles up even further.
  • Tighten your glutes, believe it or not, but this also tightens your facial muscles.
  • Let go and relax.

Repeat 3 times.

Good luck!
