These Face Yoga exercises can be done in the comfort of your own home, and you can implement them into your daily routine: morning or night!


Does Anti-Aging Face Yoga Really Work?

It absolutely does work when done correctly!

Like your body, the face has muscles: they are smaller, so it takes less time to make them stronger and more firm!

When we work the muscles in the face through Face Yoga exercises, the muscles become taut and firm, which reduces wrinkles and lines, giving a youthful appearance.

Aging comes to us all, but there are ways in which we can maintain and look after the face just as we look after the body.

Wrinkles may appear on the face through repetition of facial expressions, sun damage, dehydration, illness, and several other reasons.

Still, Face Yoga exercises give us a way to look after our face muscles, improve circulation and skin texture, and boost our confidence in a natural, nurturing way.

How Long Does It Take for These Face Yoga Exercises to Work?

There is no time frame as we are all unique and different, but you may feel a difference straight away.

Face Yoga expert Danielle Collins says: “With daily practice, you may see a notable difference in your skin within a week. Most people see some change within a month. You may find it takes six to eight months to see significant results.”
