5 Facial Exercises To Fight Aging!
Nowadays, there are so many tricks and tips to help fight aging, from creams and injections to oils and derma-rolling. But did you know that there are also facial exercises you can do that can help prevent saggy skin, diminish fine lines and press rewind on wrinkles?
Coined as 'face yoga', it works to help fight aging, from the hypodermic layer right up to the epidermis. The reason it works so well is because it helps to increase blood circulation through the muscles and skin layers, allowing more oxygen to nourish and support the skin cells. The results appear after around two weeks, giving you a youthful glow and allowing your skin to absorb the products you use afterwards, too.
They’ve also been developed to help stimulate collagen production in your skin, to help your skin feel more supple, tighter and smoother. And it couldn’t be easier!
The easiest way to incorporate this into your routine is to set aside time every day to exercise your face for around 20 minutes, such as after brushing your teeth or before you go to bed. Like with any exercise routine, it works differently for everyone, so the time it takes to show results will vary from person to person. Generally, it should take about two weeks to see some definite results.
