Can we all agree it’s been a stressful year? Between a pandemic and the stress that comes with it, it’s no wonder 42% of women admit to feeling burnt out. Unfortunately, that burnout, and the stress that comes with, can manifest in your skin and cause wrinkles and age spots that make you look older than you are. But there is good news!!
Knowing how to manipulate the muscles of your face can help stimulate natural collagen production, decrease the appearance of dynamic wrinkles (these are the ones caused by your day-to-day expressions), and tone your face the same way a workout tones your body. But just because Face Yoga involves gentle massage and manipulation of your skin to stimulate collagen production (the building blocks of a firm face) and reduce wrinkles doesn’t mean you can practice any facial exercise and expect results. The best Face Yoga moves are carefully curated and selected – so that’s what we’ve done for you here. Not only do these effective facial exercises help naturally reduce wrinkles (no Botox needed), but the soothing and calming movements can help wash the stress away. That means you’re not frowning or making facial expressions that can contribute to wrinkles (those are the dynamic wrinkles we mentioned). So if you’re ready to see just how effective Face Yoga is, we’ll show you right now! Take our 3 most effective Face Yoga moves and test out this booming wellness trend for yourself.

But it’s not impossible. To help you kickstart your anti-aging and anti-wrinkle goals, we’ve rounded up the 3 most effective Face Yoga moves. But be warned, regular practice of these exercises is *seriously* powerful. If you’re ready to start turning back the clock and enjoying younger, smoother skin, read on to find out how.
It can feel tough to lose weight from your neck and, let’s be honest, the idea of running on the treadmill or doing endless cardio doesn’t sound very appealing. Instead, try this incredibly effective Face Yoga move for removing neck fat. To start, find a comfortable place to sit or stand. With your shoulders down and relaxed, lift your chin towards the ceiling until you feel resistance in your chin/upper neck. Next, alternate between sticking your tongue out and blowing a kiss while holding each movement for 5 seconds. Don’t worry if this movement creates tension in your neck, that means it’s working!
Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 3 to 5 times
According to recent studies, 1 in 5 women is stressed about wrinkles as early as her 20’s. This means millions of women are stressed about the condition of their skin – which can actually exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles! Although crow’s feet may seem like an unavoidable sign of aging, you can reverse these wrinkles by stimulating collagen production and firming the muscles around your eyes for a one-two punch that leaves your skin taut and terrific. A simple, 100% natural alternative to Botox, start by placing both middle fingers at the inner corners of your eyebrows. Your hands will be facing up and creating a ‘V’ shape around each eye. Next, look to the ceiling and lift the skin below your eyes upwards while squinting.

First thing’s first: you don’t need to stop smiling to get rid of smile lines. Smiling actually helps develop your cheek muscles and is important in giving shape to your face. However, there is the side-effect of developing smile lines that form around the side of your nose and down to your mouth. So, if you shouldn’t stop smiling, you can create tension inside your mouth using your tongue instead. Start by taking your tongue and lifting it as high as you can on the left side of your inner cheek. Now, create five circles in a clockwise motion, then a further five circles in a counterclockwise motion. Finally, repeat this movement on the right side of your inner cheek.
