Once upon a time, wrinkles were accepted as “just part of growing older”.
An unfortunate side-effect of blowing out birthday candles each year, wrinkles and creases were a sign of aging that couldn’t be avoided.
But times have changed.
Today’s modern woman has access to a seemingly endless carousel of anti-aging routines, secrets, tricks, and tips – but you need to know how to spot the scams from the science. If removing wrinkles on your forehead, jawline, chin, eyes, and cheeks is a priority for you, the solution is easier than you think.
It’s not right in front of your face…it is your face.
In the same way, your body needs physical exercise to stay in tip-top shape, your face needs a little workout to tighten and tone facial muscles.
Think of a balloon that’s deflated. The surface is saggy, covered in visible creases, and lacking taut elasticity. Now, imagine blowing the balloon up to its full size. Suddenly, the surface is clean, smooth, and free of wrinkles.
Face Yoga helps you replicate this process. Only, instead of inflating your face, you’re firming the underlying muscles (of which there are 57 that work together across your face and neck). As the underlying muscles become firm, the outer layer of skin is pulled tight and taut, for a clearer complexion and fewer wrinkles.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to sagging skin and want to get rid of wrinkles permanently, read on for 4 facial exercises that are so easy to perform you’ll wonder why it’s taken you this long to enjoy sparkling, radiant skin.
What happens when you come home to find the dog has destroyed all your throw pillows, or your partner *still* hasn’t done the dishes?

- Place your fingers on your forehead, facing inwards
- Pull your fingers gently outwards to smooth the skin
- Raise and lower your eyebrows as if you were surprised or shocked
- Make sure you maintain gentle outward pressure to pull your skin taut while performing your eyebrow lifts
