You simply need to get in the habit of practicing these moves every day to firm sagging jaw, neck and throat or double chin also good in toning your face and warding off crow's feet. Slow down the onset of the first signs of aging.

Benefits of Face Yoga
Face Yoga Method is a natural way of looking and feeling younger and healthier with an added sense of relaxation and well-being. It is a combination of face exercises, face massage, face acupressure and face relaxation.

It also focuses on wellbeing techniques for the mind, body, and soul. It is a natural facelift. By regularly massaging the face using these techniques, you will increase the circulation, lymph flow and remove toxins.

Youthful Skin with Facial Exercises
This will reduce poor skin tone, puffiness, and dark circles and allow the skin to look healthier and more youthful. The massage techniques will also increase the collagen and elastin, the natural plumping agents which will mean a firmer and more youthful complexion.

Face yoga can relax your face, which ultimately smoothes those tension-filled expressions we make every day without even realizing it. And just relaxing those usually contorted facial muscles can give you a natural facelift.

Who needs Botox to freeze muscles into a smooth, relaxed state when face yoga can do something similar?

Relaxing the facial muscles, especially where we hold tension — like the jaw, brow, and forehead — can counteract the wrinkle-causing grimacing we do on a daily basis.

Since the muscles on our faces can’t lift weights or go on the treadmill when you apply pressure with your fingertips or make certain facial expressions, you’re toning and strengthening the muscles. Of course, face yoga won’t eradicate all the lines, but it can definitely change the downward drift.
