> and Detoxify Your Skin
At nighttime, while we are sleeping, toxins can form and waste builds up. Facial exercise can help facilitate lymph drainage while helping improve blood circulation, which has a detoxifying effect on facial skin.
This improves the appearance of the complexion by clearing impurities and dead skin cells while reducing excess fluids and overall puffiness, particularly around the most obvious area, the eyes.
Here are the Best Facial Exercises You Can Use:
(1) Eyebrow Lift
Place the 3 middle fingers of both hands underneath your eyebrows with your palms against your face. Close your eyes and lift your eyebrows up with your finger tips as high as you can without pulling too hard. Next, push brows outwards towards the temples. Now with the muscles of your forehead, push down towards your finger tips and count to 5, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
(2) For Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes
Using the 3 middle fingers of both hands, press your fingers underneath your eyes on your lower eye sockets, just above your cheek bones. With your eyes open, pull down slightly with your fingertips, trying to close your eyes. Hold for a count of 5, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
(3) Furrow (Frown Lines)
Deliberately scrunch the lines in between your brows, then resist by placing your index fingers above the center of your eyebrows and pulling outwards. Hold for 5 seconds, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
(4) Forehead Lift
Place your fingertips on each side of your forehead above the outer corners of your eyebrows. Pull gently outwards, while lifting your eyebrows up and down. Repeat 10-20 times.
(5) Cheek Lift
Fill one side of your cheek with air ad then the other (like swishing mouthwash). Alternate back and forth 5 times on each side.
(6) Fuller Lips
Make a small “O” with your lips and pretend you are blowing through a straw for 2-3 seconds and then relax your mouth. Repeat 10 times.
(7) For Double Chin
Sitting straight up, tilt your head back looking up at the ceiling. Move your lower lip up over your top lip and hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Repeat 5 times. This exercise can also be performed by puckering your lips in a kissing motion.
(8) For Turkey Neck or Sagging Neck
Sitting straight up, tilt your head back and do a chewing motion with your mouth for 30 seconds, 3 times a day.
IMPORTANT NOTES WHEN DOING THE EXERCISES:
When performing facial exercises it is important to use only the muscles you are focusing on and not to scrunch other areas of your face. For this reason, it may be a good idea to practice your facial exercises in a mirror the first few times.
By following a good natural skin care regimen and performing a regular facial exercise routine few days a week, you will be amazed just how much younger and more refreshed you will look.
