Once you start to see gravity and or age take its toll on your face, you might start understanding why people get cosmetic procedures done.
I can’t say I believe that facial yoga is our way to a natural face lift, but the idea seems very plausible. It’s not till your late 20s, early 30s that your muscle mass starts to decline, it would make sense that the muscle in your face would decline as well. Unless, you work out those muscles to counteract it.
As your facial muscle declines the skin will sag. The unfortunate part, just as most coveted things in life, seeing any improvement or any change at all is going to take consistency.
I’ve heard facial yoga experts say family and friends noticed enough of a difference in 5 weeks to ask their clients what they were doing. Because I am not, and you too are probably not a facial yoga expert, I suggest giving it a good 12 weeks.
I will be doing 12 weeks of daily facial exercises. If you want to follow along, remember to listen to your body, to your face. In a normal workout regimen you would have rest days. Again, I’m not an expert, but I think if you are just starting out exercising your face muscles, your ability to control and contract the muscles hard will take time. Your facial muscles are also used to repetitive movement, though eating, smiling and all your other facial expressions, making your face able to adapt to daily exercises.
This video is a quick, easy face yoga exercise to get rid of a double chin, taught by Fumiko Takatsu who has written 5 best selling books on Face Yoga.
According to Fumiko, our chins and necklines are one of the easiest areas on our face to firm up. Which makes it perfect for our little experiment.
I loved to hear if facial yoga has worked for you.
