Your face is beautiful because it is your own. If you have ever felt like you wouldn’t agree with the previous statement, you are a completely normal human being. It is only natural for us to have insecure moments.
Unfortunately, as we grow older, we start to have these moments more frequently and about things that seemingly are out of our control.
My eyes are starting to sag.
My skin isn’t as tight as it once was.
Can skin look dull? Because mine does.
I wish my face and neck skin would tighten up.
Enough with the internal monologue, it is time to take that control back. What if I told you that you could have the perfect face? Chances are you would jump right up for an opportunity like that, but you don’t have to because your chance is right here. You can naturally sculpt your face by doing facial exercises in order to achieve the dream look you have been searching for.
Read on to learn about these 4 exercises to sculpt the perfect face. Plus, you will get some insider tips and tricks on how to attain and maintain those dream results.
What Does It Mean To Exercise Your Face?
If you are a NuFACE regular, you know that we say microcurrent is exercise and skincare is nutrition. When we say exercise your face, we literally mean get those facial muscles to put in the work. Although they have only recently regained traction in the beauty industry, facial exercises go back thousands of years.
If there was a book of beauty, you would find that beauty and age are not defined by one another. Growing older should not be viewed as a negative thing, but more times than not, it is.
If you find that you are relating to this, we know just how frustrating it can be. You want your skin to look and feel tighter, brighter, and rejuvenated at all times. You can begin to feel like you’re losing hope for that perfect dream face, but that’s where we come in! Facial exercises — also known as face yoga — are just the tip of the iceberg for what you can do to tone your facial muscles, combat signs of aging, and support your blood circulation.
What Are the 4 Best Facial Exercises?
When it comes to facial exercises, there are many different ways you can try this method. However, what most people do not know is that you have to be very strategic when it comes to facial exercises — push or pull your skin in the wrong manner, and you might actually worsen any signs of sagging you are already dealing with.
That said, here are five of the best facial yoga moves and exercises you can do to help tone your face:
1. The Open Lymph Nodes Facial Massage
Take your index finger and middle finger and push firmly into your facial and jaw lymph nodes three times, then slowly and gently massage your lymph nodes using circular motions. You’ll find lymph nodes on the side of your neck (right under your jawline), under your chin, on both temples, your sinus points, and the bridge of your nose.
Opening up your lymph nodes is a crucial and underrated first step in facial exercises to support proper blood circulation and fluid drainage.
2. The Jaw Flex
To perform this jaw exercise, tilt your chin up back until you are comfortably looking up towards the ceiling. Put your bottom lip over your top lip as far as you can and hold this for 10 seconds. When doing this exercise, you should feel it in the jaw muscles near your ears. You can do this as many times as you would like and hold it for as long or as little as you prefer.
3. The Cheekbone Lift
If you want defined cheekbones, this might be the perfect facial exercise for you. Place your index and middle fingers over each cheekbone and lift gently until you feel like your skin is being stretched. Don’t pull or tug at your skin, just gently lift until you begin to feel a minor stretching sensation.
Open your mouth to form an “O” shape and hold this for up to 20 seconds. You will likely feel this stretch in your cheek muscles, but it shouldn’t feel like you are straining.
4. The Chipmunk Cheek Squeeze
The goal of this facial exercise is to help you achieve a slimmer-looking face and jaw. Tilt your head back comfortably until you are facing the ceiling. Suck in your cheeks and hold for up to 20 seconds, then repeat this 15-20 times. Over time, this exercise may help tone your face muscles for a tight and toned appearance.
