We have about fifty muscles in our face that we rarely tone and we should be doing so if we want to improve the look of our face, improve blood circulation in different areas, help oxygenate muscles and skin, stimulate the production of fibroblasts, the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and release toxins. Now you must be asking yourself, “but how? do I have to train my face too?” Yes, and talking on your elbows doesn’t count.
How do you choose the right exercise?
The ideal workout is one that combines facial yoga and facial gymnastics. With both techniques we will achieve good results, but let’s not get confused and put these two methods in the same bag. While with facial yoga we focus more on relaxing and toning the muscles of the face by relieving muscle tension and the tight appearance of the skin, with gymnastics what we achieve is to sculpt the muscles of the face by stimulating the creation of collagen and minimising the signs of aging. Start by planning your training, a good proposal is to do three days a week facial yoga and three days facial gymnastics, leaving the skin to rest one day a week. Don’t forget to give the playlists we have created for each moment!
Chin-chin: tightens the neck and jaw line to prevent sagging and firm up the double chin
Panda: prevents wrinkles by relaxing the forehead muscles and using acupressure to remove tension.
The Kiss: softens lips and nose lines (also known as smile lines) and lifts the eyes and cheeks
