5 Face Yoga Poses To Get Rid Of That Double Chin



What is Face Yoga?

Face yoga is a combination of exercise and stretches for the muscles in your face to help tighten, tone and keep you feeling and looking your best! If you’ve already committed to adding yoga into your routine, why not give face yoga a try? You can add this self-care routine into the beginning or end of your day and repeat it as often or as little as you see fit. These simple exercises can improve circulation which will reduce visible signs of aging and wrinkles! Looking to tighten and tone your skin? Adding facial yoga into your routine is a great place to start but it’s also important to hydrate, sleep well and reduce stress overall. We look our best when we feel our best! 

Why should you perform face yoga?

  • Improve muscle tone. Much like resistance training, these exercises make your muscles work against your hands when toning. 

  • Anti aging- Like natural botox! This practice stimulates the muscles to tighten the skin which will improve or reduce any fine lines or wrinkles.

  • Fight muscle fatigue. The massage part of this practice will help circulate your blood flow and release any tension in your lymph nodes. You’ll experience a detoxification which will awaken your skin. 

  • Long lasting health benefits. Facial yoga will smooth lines, lift and tone your cheeks and neck and reduce signs of fatigue around your eyes. As if that’s not enough, it’s also been shown to reduce neck pain, headaches and TMJ!
