Facial exercises are becoming more prevalent for men and women in their quest to look younger, but there are many myths about facial exercise regimens. We separate fact from fiction.
For those who are not sure what yoga facial exercises are, they are generally techniques used on various parts of the face and neck to firm sagging skin on the face, eradicate pork jowls and jowls, revitalize the skin color, tighten the turkey neck and soften the face. and eye wrinkles. Some facial exercise programs involve isometric principles and some employ massage techniques that involve the use of the fingertips.
Here are some interesting things to note about facial exercises:
Myth: You can alter the facial structure of the face with plastic surgery, but not with a system of facial exercises.
Fact: To some extent, you can change the structure of your face using facelift exercises, just not as quickly or as dramatically as cosmetic surgery. If you focus on certain regions, such as cheek exercises, the cheeks will plump up. If you do it in the eye bags, they will diminish and the shape of your face will change towards a more youthful shape. However, facial yoga is not effective in correcting birth defects or damage caused by an accident.
Myth: Surgically cutting loose skin to firm turkey neck, lift sagging facial skin and sagging jowls, and resolve a jowl problem is better than thoroughly massaging these areas.
Fact: Surgical lifting of sagging skin is temporary. After a while, it will bulge again and you will have to repeat the surgery at a higher cost to you. The face and neck exercises will keep the skin firm and toned continuously, but not invasively.
Myth: Do-it-yourself non-surgical face lifts are not as effective as plastic surgery procedures.
Fact: Cosmetic surgery is radical and interferes with the body’s natural energy lines and nodal points. Facial exercises are gentle, non-invasive, and increase energy and blood flow, rather than restrict it.
Myth: You have to perform a system of facial exercises every day, and it is difficult to remember all the techniques and points, as well as taking a lot of time.
Fact: It is recommended to do facelift exercises daily for about twenty minutes. In general, there are about twenty points to massage on the face and neck, so one minute on each point will be enough; They are usually placed in the same positions on the face and neck that are used by acupuncturists to treat certain ailments.
Myth: Facelift exercises are painful or will damage the sinuses.
Fact: Facial exercises must be applied with the fingertips firmly on very specific pressure points. Firm, but not too firm as to cause pain or discomfort. At first, you may experience some nasal congestion for the first few days while massaging the sinus area, but that is perfectly natural and will dissipate quickly.
Myth: Yoga or facial exercises do not produce better results than creams, lotions, Botox, thermage, laser treatments as an anti-aging skincare routine to smooth eye wrinkles (crow’s feet), laughter and forehead lines.
Fact: Lotions and creams are great for long-term anti-aging skin care, and I advise people to use them when doing facial yoga exercises to work on the cream simultaneously. Botox and other artificial methods are quick fixes and can even be harmful to you. But face yoga can easily turn back the clock holistically, not just slowing down the effects of aging.
