But, it is a natural process to grow with age and some physical changes in our appearance.
For example, our jowls begin to hang more loosely, and our cheeks lose their definition. Hence, it is often referred to as "laugh lines" and "middle-age lines".
These lines may stand in between our attractiveness. Although it doesn’t change one’s inner beauty, there is an easy solution to this problem.
It is some simple facial Yoga exercises you can perform at home, in the office, or even while travelling.
Some of you may have heard of facial yoga but are not sure how to go about it. Facial yoga is a natural, holistic way to improve facial muscle tone.
Facial muscles are not unlike other muscles in the human body. With regular exercise, they strengthen and firm up, giving us tighter skin and smoother-looking skin.
This article will discuss the importance of Facial yoga and examine facial Yoga exercises for jowls that you can perform anywhere.
Importance of Facial Yoga
As we age, the muscles in our faces go through a gradual process of degeneration. It makes them grow weaker and less responsive. To make matters worse, we tend to lose interest in our appearance as we age.
Facial yoga is a great solution to tighten loose skin on the face, improve blood flow, reduce stress and tension, and improve your overall glow.
As the muscle tone in the face goes down, our facial features start to sag and loosen. It results in jowls, loose cheeks (which give us that “hollowed” look), sagging eyelids (which make us look tired), double chins, and an overall flabbiness of the skin.
With facial yoga, you can achieve healthier, more youthful skin. You won't need expensive and painful procedures to plump up your cheeks and reduce the bags under your eyes.
Of course, you will need to spend some time learning about facial Yoga Exercises before you can see results. Luckily enough, this article is written just for that purpose! So let’s jump right in!
Face Yoga For Jowls – How To Get Rid Of Jowls Using Face Yoga Exercises
There are several different facial Yoga exercises you can perform to stimulate the facial muscles and give your face a more youthful appearance.
All of these exercises require your total concentration. If you are not paying attention to what you are doing, your efforts will be in vain.
Also, all the activities need to be performed with regularity over some time for maximum impact.
I have listed the facial Yoga exercises for jowls that are most beneficial for this purpose. They are as follows:
The Head Scrunch:
The Head Scrunch is a simple exercise for all age groups, and anyone can do it. This exercise will firm and tighten your neck muscles while also massaging your face and neck, resulting in a more beautiful look and a beautiful smile guarantee.
For this exercise, place one hand against your forehead and the other behind your head. Then, slowly, push your head in the direction of the hand on your forehead. Hold this position for about five seconds and then slowly release.
Repeat this movement ten times to start with, and work your way up to 20-30 repetitions to see optimum results.
The Fish Face:
The Fish Face is a fun facial Yoga exercise you can do while watching TV or talking to someone on the phone. It will help to decrease or eliminate jowls by improving facial muscle tone.
To perform this exercise, gently make a fish face by puckering your lips and raising both of your eyebrows slightly.
Be in the position for few seconds and relax, allowing your mouth to hang open. Repeat this movement ten times for each set.
When performed correctly, the Nod facial Yoga exercise will eliminate jowls and help stimulate circulation in your face and neck areas. In addition, it will result in a beautiful, youthful glow.
To perform this exercise, nod up and down ten times while sitting or standing in your everyday posture. You can also turn it into a game by counting numbers while performing this exercise.
For example, start by saying “one” when you nod your head down and then say “two” when you nod your head up. Repeat this exercise 10 times for each set.
The Chin Pull:
The Chin Pull facial Yoga exercise is similar to the Head Scrunch, but it will tighten your chin muscles instead of your neck muscles.
In addition, it will help get rid of jowls over time by strengthening the muscles in the bottom half of your face... the jaw.
To perform this exercise:
- Make a chin tuck by pursing your lips and raising your eyebrows.
- Be in the position for about five seconds and then relax for another five seconds, returning to your everyday posture.
- Repeat this movement ten times to start with, and work your way up to 20-30 repetitions to see optimal results.
The Chin Retraction:
Next, we’ll examine the Chin Retraction facial Yoga exercise. This exercise will help to tighten the muscles in your Chin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
For this facial Yoga exercise, make a "fish face", but only do this for about five seconds at a time instead of holding it for 10 seconds like you would for the Fish Face exercise.
These shorter intervals are more beneficial to natural tissue regeneration than more extended periods are.
Repeat it ten times to start with, and work your way up to 20-30 repetitions to see optimal results.
