Yoga is one of the oldest traditions practiced not only in India but throughout the world. From getting rid of excess fat from the body to relaxing frowns and fine lines on the face, yoga is effective in so many different ways. According to experts, one of the best ways to get rid of frown/fine lines on the face is by practicing facial yoga. It helps release tension from eyes, neck, and forehead as well.
Practising facial yoga will not eradicate the fine lines and wrinkles on the face but it will help to slow down the downward drift. Practising facial yoga can help you get a radiant and youthful skin.
1. Smooth Forehead Yoga:
One of the easiest ways to get rid of the wrinkles from the face is by practicing smooth forehead yoga. In order to do this yoga, you need to widen your eyes and expose it as much as you can. Do this for as long as you can and hold this position for 60 seconds (1 minutes). Practice this every day to relax your eyes and also to get rid of the wrinkles. Your eyes might water while performing this exercise, but don’t worry as watering of eyes can help to remove the toxins from the eyes.
2. Puff Your Cheeks:
If you find the skin around the cheeks, loose and sagging you should be practicing this exercise every day. In order to do this exercise, fill your mouth with air. Puff both your cheeks and shift the air from one cheek to another. Do this 5 times for each cheek and slowly release the air by making a small O. Practising this exercise will prevent face wrinkles and also keep your cheeks firm.
3. Look Up:
Looking up at the ceiling is another way to get rid of the face wrinkles. Look up at the ceiling and extend your mouth like you are trying to kiss the ceiling. Hold this posture for 60 seconds and relax for some time. If you want, you can also stick your tongue out and try to maintain this posture for some time. Practising this exercise can help to get rid of the wrinkles easily and also help to tighten the jaw line. Do this exercise for 10-20 times in a day to get the perfect jaw line and high cheekbones.
4. Puppet Face:
Puppet face is another effective facial yoga exercise which can help to get rid of the wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Also, it can make your face look fuller and younger. In order to perform this workout, you need to smile widely showing your teeth. Now gently press your fingers into the creases between the lips and nose. When your finger tips push the muscles back, it will not only strengthen the muscles but also help to get rid of the wrinkles.
5. Smile Smoother:
If you suffer from wrinkles around the mouth area, smile smoother is the best facial yoga you can practice at home. This workout is ideally good for sagging skin and smile lines. Hide your teeth with your lips and start making an O shape with your mouth. Smile widely and make sure you do not expose your teeth while doing so. Hold the smile by placing index finger on the chin. Repeat this exercise 10-15 times in a day.
6. Giraffe posture:
In order to treat loose skin on face and neck, you should be practicing the giraffe posture every day. Look straight into the mirror, and place your finger tips at the bottom of the neck. Now slightly stroke the skin downwards with head tilted back. Now extend the lower lip as much as possible so that your muscles stretch. Hold this posture for 20 seconds and release the muscles. Repeat this 5-8 times to treat loose and sagging skin.
