If you’re at all tuned in to the online wellness community, you’ve probably heard about a new type of anti-aging method called “face yoga.” Face yoga is becoming increasingly popular with a number of A-list celebrities - such as Meghan Markle, Jennifer Aniston, and Madonna - who swear by its rejuvenating effects.
Face yoga consists of stretching and strengthening the underlying facial muscles through often goofy-looking expressions and poses. By toning the facial muscles, the skin on top stays firm and plump.
If you’re feeling skeptical that pulling silly faces in the mirror every day could actually help with your wrinkles, you should know that scientists are beginning to study the effects of face yoga. And recent findings - such as this study - have shown that it actually does work! Best of all, face yoga is a much cheaper (as in, free!) alternative to traditional anti-aging procedures like Botox and facelifts, and is much healthier for you.
To get started with your face yoga practice, take a look at this guide from Rory below. You can also check out their accompanying printable schedule to make sure you stay on track with your exercises every day!
