Anger, sorrow or joy – our emotions can sometimes be clearly written on our face. This is not the only reason why the muscles in our face are in motion around the clock. And as a result they become a little looser as the years pass. Facial yoga can be used to relax and strengthen the facial muscles at the same time. In fact, facial yoga can have an overall natural anti-ageing effect.1 Find out what yoga can do for your face and how to do the exercises effectively.
Movement of the facial muscles combined with a facial massage can help to stimulate the different layers of the skin. The epidermis is the top layer you can see and feel, the dermis lies directly below this exposed layer and the hypodermis is the bottom layer of the skin that contains fat and sweat glands. Facial yoga is therefore credited with having a positive effect on our wellbeing as well as better blood circulation and skin tightening.
The fat and muscle mass under the skin decreases over time and can lead to increased wrinkles and sagging of the facial muscles. Muscle training can increase the muscle mass in the face so wrinkles can be smoothed. Facial yoga can, for example, help to smooth frown lines on the forehead or the nasolabial fold lines between the nose and mouth.
Yoga is not only able to bring body and mind into harmony. With facial yoga you also give your face a break from everyday facial tension. Alongside simple muscle exercises, facial gymnastics—like other types of yoga—also promotes self-awareness, reflection and a kind of meditation. Take a few minutes each day for relaxation and self-care. It is well known that “me time” can make a positive difference to mental health and reduces work stress.
To ensure effective relaxation the right environment is crucial. Create a quiet and pleasant environment that is free of distractions. Put on relaxed music or just focus on your breathing. Put your phone on silent. To begin the relaxation process, take a deep breath before beginning facial yoga exercises. Creating an environment where you can relax helps you to switch off from the stress of everyday life, enabling relaxation, at the same time, in your face.
Working on a computer or tablet for a long time not only places great strain on the brain but also on the neck.2 Looking down at a smart phone can also cause neck pain.3 Since the neck muscles are closely linked to the facial muscles, facial yoga can be used here to reduce tension and thus contribute to overall wellbeing.
The natural process of life also involves ageing of the skin. As the years go by, our skin increasingly loses its elasticity. Facial yoga can provide you with a natural anti-ageing effect which allows you and your skin to shine. And, in addition to a good skin care routine, can counteract the natural ageing process.1
The main complaint heard from critics is that facial yoga fuels fear of ageing. But the appearance of wrinkles is not necessarily an effect of the ageing process. In everyday life, we often squint our eyes or frown. The frequent tensioning of the respective facial parts can lead to the increased formation of wrinkles. For example, in the so-called frown lines between the eyes or wrinkles on the forehead. Through a release of tension in the face and targeted exercises, facial yoga can stimulate blood circulation and oxygen transport, thus contributing to a smoother skin appearance at any age.
Sagging or swelling in the area above the eye is often referred to as drooping eyelids. Facial yoga can help to reduce drooping eyelids by strengthening the forehead muscles, thereby raising the eyebrows significantly.
When it comes to drooping at the corners of the mouth, the aim of facial yoga exercises is to firm up the tissue in the face. Improving blood circulation around the lips helps to tighten the muscles and reduce fat retention.
Facial yoga can also be used to tighten the skin on the neck and therefore helps to reduce the appearance of a double chin.
A 2018 study confirmed the skin-tightening effect of face yoga.1 American researchers studied the effect of a 30-minute facial muscle training regime which was first performed daily and then three times a week over a 20-week period.
The exercises include the training of different facial muscles and the use of finger massages. For example, participants were instructed to open their mouths, slide the upper lip over their teeth and smile so that their cheeks pull upwards. Pressure is applied to the upper cheek area with the fingers. They then move their cheeks down and then up several times. This achieves a significant increase in the fullness of the cheeks.
It was proven that the muscle growth generated by yoga visibly smooths the skin and counteracts fat loss. A pleasant side effect of the study is that the subjects were estimated to look on average three years younger after the test period.
