Growing old is inevitable but looking younger than your age is a thing of choice. One of the visible effects of ageing is wrinkles but asides from using cosmetic products, there are specific facial exercises that can tone the muscles and ameliorates wrinkling.
There are about 52 muscles on our faces and if we neglect this body part, it may become loose and a tad flabby. We have come up with some facial exercises that will give your face a lift and make you look younger than your age.
Just like you warm up before carrying out any exercise, you can do a facial warm-up before the real exercise. It doesn’t really matter the position you take, but ensure your back is straight and then sing the vowels for as long as possible. A, E, O and I are the best vowels to use to warm up your face.
This exercise, if followed through consistently can help the brows maintain their natural position.
To do this, place your index and middle fingers of the left and right hand above your brows. Gently push the skin down. The idea of pushing the skin down is to create resistance while you push the brows up and down. Repeat this routine 10 times in six sets.
The Cheekbone Lift
The cheekbone lift gives you a defined cheekbone. If you have flabby and fat cheekbones, this exercise would be good for you.
Like in the one above, place the index and middle fingers of your left and right hands over your cheeks. Lift the skin albeit gently and open your mouth to form an O shape while you do that. Hold for up to 10 seconds and then complete 10-15 sets.
The cheek puff removes unwanted lines around the mouth.
Puff out your cheeks with air inside your mouth. Move the air from the left to the right side, and from the right to the left side while holding for 10 seconds. This makes the cheek muscles firmer.
The under-eye pull exercise is effective for ridding off dark circles and eye bags. When you do the under-eye pull, the blood flows around the face increases.
Using your index fingers, pull the muscles under your eye outwards – stretch it to its limit but ensure your eye is closed while doing this. Do the same routine for both eyes.
The Chipmunk Cheek Squeeze
The exercise is perfect for people who are looking to get a slimmer face.
To do this, with your chin pushed forward, tilt your head to the back and suck your cheeks inward as much as you can. Hold the same position for 10 seconds and complete 10-15 sets.
The Jaw Flex
The jaw flex exercise tones the jawline of the face.
To do this, tilt your head backwards like you want to do the chipmunk cheek squeeze.
Tuck your upper lip into your lower lip, and move the lower lip over the upper as far as you can. Hold for 10 seconds.
The forehead workout makes removes crow’s feet and forehead lines.
To do this, open your eyes as wide as you can, then pull the forehead skin to the back.
Wrinkles are a frequent indication of ageing, but there are several face exercises that, if performed regularly, may help tone the muscles in your face. The about 52 muscles that comprise each of our faces may begin to get lax and even a little bit flabby if we let them go.
We have come up with certain facial exercises that might make you seem many years younger than you really are. If you have extra skin and fat around your cheekbones, you will benefit from this exercise. Place the index and middle fingers of both your left and right palms over your cheeks.
Make the letter “O” with your mouth by expanding it as wide as you can. Hold for as long as 10 seconds, and then execute ten to fifteen sets after releasing. The Chipmunk Squeeze to the Face’s Cheeks and Lips is great for acquiring a slimmer face. The Give and Take of the Jaw may help tone the jawline if it is performed regularly. Getting rid of crow’s feet and wrinkles on the forehead are made easier by the forehead workout.
