Want to improve your facial skin and muscle tone? Maybe you’ve heard of facial fitness or facial yoga? No? Then this article is for you.
Facial fitness is a fantastic complex of facial exercises, combined with various self-massage techniques, which, when performed regularly, can not only improve the oval of the face, prevent double chin and reduce eyebags, but also lift the upper eyelids, reduce wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and lips, as well as improve neck skin and complexion. Plus, you can do it all at home.
The essence of this method is to fight the causes, not the consequences. By identifying the reasons why the oval of the face loses its firmness, sagging cheeks are forming, the nose-mouth wrinkle is getting deeper and the eyelids are drooping, it is possible to choose appropriate facial exercises and massage techniques that will help improve the visual appearance of the face. The result achieved depends on individual internal resources, commitment and regularity. In addition to aesthetic improvements, this method can help prevent migraines, improve vision, restore hair growth and improve the function of the biting muscles, thus having a beneficial effect on oral health.
The face is a part of the body and has muscles as well, in fact – 43 muscles. And like the muscles of the body, the muscles of the face need workout to be in the best shape. You see, wrinkles that appear on the surface of the skin are caused by muscle deformity, tension and relaxation, so regular workout and properly performed massage can provide a natural lifting effect and improve the overall appearance of the face.
Facial fitness affects much deeper facial tissues and structures and involves working with facial muscles, muscle fascia, subcutaneous fat, blood circulation and the lymphatic system. By working at these levels, the result is, of course, also reflected in the facial skin.
All you need is patience and practice.
Facial fitness normalizes facial muscle tone, improves blood and lymph flow, and provides cells with the necessary nutrients. And this guarantees that the facial skin receives enough oxygen and the necessary nutrients. On the other hand, massaging the face stimulates the metabolism in the skin and increases the effectiveness of cosmetics. By performing this set of exercises regularly, it is possible to get a beautiful facial skin tone in the long run and get rid of gray skin. In addition, facial fitness helps to delay the aging process and the formation of wrinkles, as well as maintain a firm oval of the face.
There are different exercises and facial massage methods that can be chosen depending on the problem area, but the basic principle is one – deliberate and precise stretching of facial muscles and massage with fingers or special massage tools such as Jade Roller (jade face roller) or Gua Sha (crystal facial massage plate). Which exercise and massage method to choose, I’ll leave to you, but don’t worry, there are many sources on the Internet, where it is explained in detail how to perform specific exercises and massages. The key is to get started! Here are some examples of inspiration:

First of all, you can perform facial exercises at any time, but it is recommended to perform self-massage only on cleansed facial skin.
For this purpose, I recommend using a skin cleanser that gently removes dirt and cleans pores, such as our cleansing foam.
Secondly, before a facial massage, for a better result and a more pleasant massage, it is recommended to apply a skin care oil, nourishing or moisturizing cream.
And finally, experts recommend exercising and self-massage 4 to 5 times a week, ideally both in the morning and in the evening.
I do my own massage every day and it takes me 10 minutes – 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening.
Habits have power!
