Fumiko Takatsu, the creator of the Face Yoga method, says that several minutes of daily stretching of the muscles of the face will help to achieve a younger look.
The human face consists of 58 muscles. In spite of such a large number of muscles, we do not use them all simultaneously. We use muscles in the mouth most. We will start the muscles on the face, we will start the circulation and stimulate the skin for faster regeneration, faster change of dead cells and stimulate the change of substance in the skin. You can practice yoga in the morning or in the evening.
The four facial exercises will help us to lift the contour of the face, achieve a better muscle tone and ultimately a young and fresh look.
Exercise for the forehead
Advantage: Prevents the contractions by relaxing the muscles of the forehead and acupressure to eliminate tension.
Connect both hands in your hand. Place the middle fingers and index finger joints in the center of the forehead and apply firm pressure. Keep pressing until you slowly push your hands on each side. Complete your fingers lightly with your fingers. Repeat four more times.
Exercise for the neck
Advantage: tightens the neck and jaw to prevent lowering and firming the double beard.
Squeeze the lips to one side as much as you can (need to feel stretching in your face). Turn your head to that side, raising your head at an angle of 45 degrees. Feel the stretching in your neck. Hold on for three seconds. Repeat on the same page, then repeat for the other side.
Exercise for lifting the face
Advantage: Reduces nasolabal lines and raises eyes and faces.
Put your palms on the temples. Push your hands up and back, raising your sides. Open your mouth and make the "O" shape. Lower the fork to keep your face for longer. Hold this pose for five seconds. Repeat two more times.
Exercise for eye area
Advantage: Raises eased eyelids and relaxed skin everywhere and smoothes nasolabial folds.
Press your shoulders down and lift one hand straight up, then lower your hand over your head to place your fingertips on the temple. Lightly press the fingertips downwards to lift the face up and down, then lower the head to the shoulder, holding the chest open. Hold this pose while slowly spilling through your mouth. Next, reach your other hand at an angle of 45 degrees and when you're breathing, drop your tongue down. Make the other side and repeat it all the way.
