If you want to get a well-sculpted body, you would invest some time in pushups, planks, and toning exercises. And for attaining the six-pack abs, the gym is where you would want to be. Similarly, to define and tone your facial muscles, a workout session solely dedicated to your face – face yoga would make sense.
Hence, an easy and effective self-care regime- face yoga is what you need for a crow’s feet free, wrinkle-free, toned, and youthful-looking skin. Nudging those 43 face muscles not only prevents them from sagging, but it also increases the blood flow, which helps absorb serums and moisturisers to nourish your skin. All you need are 10 minutes daily to minimise signs of aging and strengthening areas such as eyes, jawline, neck, eyebrows, and cheeks.
