Yoga, the age old discipline has been the buzzword for a healthier lifestyle for quite some time now. But do you know what else has been spreading through the world? Face Yoga.
There are approximately 52 muscles in your face, and exercising them helps release facial tension, neck and eye strain.The muscles of the face are no different from the muscles of the rest of the body. If you don’t exercise the muscles below the neck, they become weak and flabby, and the same thing will happen to your face with age. 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. Facial Yoga obviously doesn’t eradicate lines, but it can definitely change the downward drift.
Doing facial exercises, or Facial Yoga, is a completely natural way to make your face look younger by toning the muscles. Even if you workout regularly, you probably neglect these muscles. Just clenching your face muscles improves blood circulation which results in a clear, healthy complexion with a beautiful glow. Facial Yoga helps make your jawbone more prominent, enhances the cheekbones and shreds the excess fat in your face.
So if you’re conscious about your double chin, chubby cheeks or wrinkles, you can take matters into your own hands. Is one of your eyebrows raised or your lips pursed as you read this? That’s face yoga!
7 Really Simple Face Exercises

Puff out both of your cheeks and shift the air in your mouth from one cheek to the other, 5 times. Then release air while making a small “O”. Repeat the exercise three-four times to keep your cheeks firm.
2. Stick Your Tongue Out
No, seriously. Stick your tongue out as far as it will go, and hold this pose for 60 seconds. Repeat 3 times.
5. Fish Face
Smile while pursing your lips, then create a fish face by sucking the inside of your cheeks into the gap between the sides of your teeth. Perform this exercise five times to firm and tone your lips and cheeks.
6. Bye Bye Crow’s Feet!
7. The Louis Armstrong “Satchmo”
You can perform these exercises in your spare time. And since the facial muscles are smaller in comparison, they’ll respond quicker. And over time, the results will be dramatic. Go on, kiss the sky!
