Face Yoga – An Introduction

Face Yoga – An Introduction

By Sep 16, 2015 0 comment

Face yoga was first introduced to me by Soothe-Me last year (love it!!!) and I’ve started out with this routine by Danielle Collins –  try these instructions for 5 exercises to try at home (exercises and pics taken directly from The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method  found & originally from Marie Claire magazine).

1. THE V

Face yoga Danielle

Good for drooping eyelids, crow’s feet, eye bags and puffiness

Step 1: Press both middle fingers together at the inner corner of the eyebrows, then with the index fingers, apply pressure to the outer corners of the eyebrows.

Step 2: Look to the ceiling, and raise the lower eyelids upwards to make a strong squint, and then relax.

Step 3: Repeat six more times and finish by squeezing eyes shut tightly for 10 seconds.

2. THE SMILE SMOOTHER

Great for cheek lines and sagging skin.

Step 1: Hide the teeth with the lips to make an ‘O’ shape with the mouth.

Step 2: Smile widely while keeping the teeth hidden and repeat six times.

Step 3: Next, hold the smile shape while placing one index finger on the chin. Then start to move the jaw up and down as the head tilts gently back. Relax and repeat twice more.

3. SMOOTH THE BROW

The-Smooth-Brow

Good for horizontal forehead lines.

Step 1: Place both hands on the forehead facing inwards and spread all of the fingers out between the eyebrows and hairline.

Step 2: Gently sweep the fingers outwards across the forehead, applying light pressure to tighten the skin.

Step 3: Relax and repeat 10 times.

 

4. FLIRTY EYES

Step 1: Place an index finger under each eye, pointing towards the nose.

Step 2: Hide the teeth and tease the top lip and bottom lip away from each other at the the mouth.

Step 3: Flutter the upper eyelids while gazing at the ceiling for 30 seconds.

5. THE GIRAFFE

Good for lines and loose skin on the neck and alternative to: neck lift and jowl lift.

Step 1: Looking straight ahead, place the finger tips at the bottom of the neck and lightly stroke the skin downwards with the head tilted back.

Step 2: Bring the head back down to the chest and repeat twice more.

Step 3: Finally, jut the lower lip out as far as possible to pull the corners of the mouth down and place finger tips on the collarbone with the chin pointed upwards. Hold for four deep breaths.
