Skin care is self-care and facial yoga is the important daily ritual your routine needs. Whether you start the day improving lymph flow or ease tension after a long, screen-filled day, facial exercises can strengthen muscles, relax lines and better connect to ourselves. Not only a nourishing self-care ritual, facial massage and facial yoga may have the potential to stimulate collagen production, the key to younger and healthier looking skin.
Face yoga benefits
Facial yoga works to stimulate the muscles, skin, and lymphatic system. By softening and relaxing your face muscles, face yoga benefits can be felt and seen inside and out1. Alleviating feelings of tension, stress, and worry, reducing wrinkles and puffiness, and lifting sagging skin. With immediate effects seen in increasing blood circulation to the face, facial yoga sculpts cheeks and jowls for a firmer and healthier complexion. The face yoga method is an opportunity to cultivate positive affirmations and gratitude in a daily self-care ritual. Try our favourite facial yoga rituals below.
