Five best face yoga exercises

Warm Up 

 Start your workout by blowing exaggerated raspberries not only just with the lips, but with the cheeks as well. The bigger vibration is better for relaxing facial muscles. Lip muscles are a core muscle for the face. By relaxing these muscles, other muscles are relaxed too.

Slim Your “Tech Neck” Double Chin

Keeping your shoulders down and relaxed, tip your chin up to the ceiling until you feel a good stretch in the upper neck and chin area. Then, alternate making duck lips and sticking out your tongue, holding each pose for 5 seconds each. Repeat three times.

Make sure to keep your chin extended and keep your neck taut the whole while.

Smooth Smile Lines

Firstly don’t stop smiling and laughing! If you don’t smile, you’re not going to develop cheek muscle. Instead, tackle smile lines by breaking down the tension in the muscle from the inside out by using the tongue. Starting up by the nose, the lines tend to be deepest, stick your tongue inside your mouth and make a tiny circle on the labial line. Do five circles clockwise and counterclockwise on each side to smooth smile lines.

Firm Up Saggy Cheeks and Jowls

To remove the saggy cheeks, pull everything to the side: imagine your right teeth pulled to the left side of your mouth in what should look kind of like a sideways kissy-face. Hold for 10 seconds for an effective exercise that trains and stretches at the same time. It is a great way to improve skin elasticity.

Fight Eye Wrinkles and Crow’s Feet

Keeping shoulders back and relaxed, point your chin down to your chest and make an oval with your mouth. At the same time, look upward with just the eyes: “don’t move your head or shoulders, you should feel stretching underneath the eye. Hold for three seconds, and then tuck the upper lip inside the mouth to make an “ahh” face. This circuit should give you a deep stretch in the face so that wrinkles don’t stay.
