Wrinkles, crows' feet and laugh lines on the face - the stuff that women's nightmares are made of! With increasing age, they cannot be avoided. But following a regular face exercise regimen can help to keep wrinkles and sagging skin at bay. Other than the jars of moisturizers and tubes of cleansers, facial skin can be kept healthy and glowing with face exercises. Each part of the face can be exercised. We list out some simple face exercises that you can benefit from.


Facial exercise benefits



The appearance of your skin relies in part on supportive facial muscles. In order for these facial muscles to remain smooth and firm, they need to be exercised and well toned. Facial exercise will assist in achieving this. The benefits of face exercises are removal of puffiness or 'bags' under the eyes. The milking action of the muscles drains the lymph in areas where it tends to accumulate. This tends to be prominent under the eyes and in the lower jaw. With the right face exercises, facial lines and wrinkles are minimized and potential wrinkles are prevented. Improved muscle tone will result in better blood circulation and therefore a more radiant complexion.


Face exercises also activate better nutrition to the skin. Consequently, you will see improved collagen and elastin production. Balanced sebum distribution balances out the oily and dry patches and leads to smaller pores. A maximum of half an hour a day is sufficient for a routine that would lead to visible results.


Facial Exercise 1

A great exercise it to sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and then start a chewing movement. You will feel the muscles working in your neck and throat area. Repeat 20 times.

Facial Exercise 2

Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Start puckering your lips together in a kiss and stretch the kiss, as if you were trying to kiss the ceiling. Keep your lips puckered for 10 counts. Relax and bring your head back to normal and repeat 5 times.

Facial Exercise 3

Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Open your lips and stick your tongue out as if you were trying to touch your chin with the tips of your tongue. Keep your tongue out in this position for 10 counts and return your tongue and head to its normal position.

Face Exercise 4

Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Next move your lower lip over your top lip as far as possible and keep it there for a count of 5. Relax and repeat 5 times.

Facial Exercise 5

Lie on your bed, with your head hanging down over the edge. Slowly bring your head up towards your torso and keep it there for 10 counts. Relax and lower your head towards the floor again. Repeat 5 times.

Face Exercise 6

Sit upright and face forward and while keeping your lips together, separate your teeth by dropping your jaw and then push your jaw forward, keep for a count of 10 and bring back to starting position. Repeat 5 times.

Face tapping is yet another good facial exercise to pep up the blood circulation. Tap dots on the face with the pads of your middle fingers. Sharp, light and quick taps can help boost the circulation. Massaging the ears can go a long way in lending a glow to the face. With index finger and thumb, massage the rim of the ear and pull it slightly. Do not miss out the crevices and spirals of the ear too.

If puffy and droopy eyelids and sagging chin stare at you from the mirror, it is about time to tighten the elongated muscles and rebuild the atrophying muscle tissues. Get started on a face exercise regimen!
