Skin Gym: Workouts And Techniques For A Toned Complexion

A healthy lifestyle primarily consists of engaging in a well-rounded physical exercise regimen. Yet the muscles on our faces are the ones we usually forget to exercise. For the more than 57 muscles in your face and neck to remain toned and in shape, you must exercise them just like the rest of your body. Your face can get slimmer, your muscles stronger, and you can even fight the effects of ageing with these easy exercises for your face.

 

(1) FACIAL YOGA

Facial Yoga helps with firming your face and neck muscles. The exercise also helps improve your blood circulation and tone your facial muscles. All it takes to do facial yoga is a simple breathing exercise. While maintaining a straight posture, take a deep breath through your mouth. Hold the breath in your cheeks by puffing them out. Exhale and repeat this exercise 8-10 times.

 

 

(2) BROW RAISER

The brow raiser exercise helps you get over droopy eyebrows, and most importantly, it helps keep your eyebrows where they belong. Factors like ageing and constant wincing can make your brows droop, but with a few simple steps, you can get your brows to stay raised.

(A) Put your index and middle fingers together.

(B) Just above the brows, place your fingers and press the skin downward.

(C) Lift and lower your brows while applying pressure with your fingertips to create tension.

(D) Repeat it for six sets with ten eyebrow raises and drops per set.

 

 

(3) CHEEK PLUMPING

We regain the young appeal of our adolescent years with plump and supportive skin! You can make your skin appear plumper by lifting the folds around your nose.

(A) Let your smile be as big as possible to start. Apply pressure with your fingertips to the folds that separate your lips and nose.

(B) Press down and lift your cheek muscles to provide resistance. To prevent overstressing your hand, make sure your fingertips are firm.

(C) Do this for two to three minutes while taking well-spaced-put breaks. This will help strengthen your cheek muscles!

 

 

(4) FOREHEAD FINE-TUNING

Are you scowling at your screen because you’re worrying more than is necessary? One exercise can effectively address wrinkles on the forehead, which is among the first areas to show signs of ageing.You can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead by acting shocked. Just keep your forehead frozen, open your eyes as wide as possible, and repeat 8–10 times daily!

 

 

(5) DOUBLE-CHIN WORKOUTS

Your platysma muscle is to be blamed for your unattractive double chin in photos. This muscle, which attaches your jaw to your shoulders, becomes slack with age and causes sagging skin on the neck. These quick face exercises will guarantee that they are taut again.

(A) Determine your most comfortable position and adopt it. You can stand or sit straight. Tilt your head to the back while gazing at the ceiling.

(B) Touch your tongue to the roof of the mouth while holding your head still. You would feel a slight prickly pain in your neck due to the contraction of muscles.

(C) Gently release your grip and return your chin to its natural posture. Perform five sets of this exercise, holding your tongue for 25 to 30 seconds for each set.

 

 

(6) EYE TONING

Do you feel self-conscious about your drooping eyelids but don’t want to get Botox? That’s when this series of exercises comes in handy. Additionally, it is effective for puffiness, eye bags, and crow’s feet.

(A) Arrange your middle and index fingers over your eyes in a ‘V’ shape. Firmly press and keep both middle fingers together at the inner corner of the eyebrows. Place pressure on the outer corners of your eyebrows using your index fingers.

(B) Relax and lift your lower eyelids to create a dramatic squint while gazing at the ceiling.

(C) Do this at least six more times and end the set by squeezing your eyes shut tight for ten seconds.
