06 Maggio 2015
There’s no denying the popularity of yoga, but what about facial yoga? A quick Google search provides you with before and after photos, suggestions for which “poses” work best and “how to” videos from facial yoga experts. But what exactly is facial yoga, and is it just another beauty trend?
Facial yoga is all about exercising your face muscles, which tightens, tones and, according to practitioners, combats aging. The techniques are also designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the middle layer of the skin giving you a smoother, more supple, tighter-looking skin with a natural glow. This series of exercises promises to do for your face what yoga does for your body: relax and tone muscles. Experts recommend performing the various facial exercises for 20 minutes, six times a week in order to see results quickly. After all, there are approximately 50 muscles in your face, so exercising them is key.
Facial yoga has a variety of benefits aside from those mentioned above. For one, it’s much cheaper — not to mention safer — than plastic surgery. It’s also much safer- facial yoga is 100% natural and doesn’t contain any chemicals or require needles.
