EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FACE YOGA
How to get refined facial features and prominent cheekbones?
Clearly defined, high cheekbones are the pride for one women and the envy for others. Just like a thin, refined face. For a long time, there was an opinion that the face shape can not be corrected in any other way, except for plastic surgery. However, not long ago, a New York yoga instructor Annliz Hagen has created an innovative sculptor for the face.
A young, beautiful face is not only good skin without wrinkles. The chiseled cheekbones, beautiful jawline, and absence of nasolabial "creases" speak of youth. Unfortunately, time and gravity are not merciful to the neck and face muscles. Therefore, the first signs of a "tired" face become noticeable from the age of 23-25.
Over many years of advertising, we have learned a few things very well. For example, in order to have a braced body, you need to work out in fitness clubs. To combat wrinkles, you need to use a special serum and cream. To see the Jolie cheekbones on your face you need to go to a plastic surgeon. Meanwhile, there are more than 55 muscles on the face and neck. They do not require training equipment and sports uniforms. And their training gives stunning results.
The Annelise Hagen's set of exercises is called face yoga and is based on the principle that the face muscles can be trained, as well as the muscles of the body. If you do not train your body's muscles, they become weak and flabby, and the same thing happens with the facial muscles. The popularity of face yoga is growing rapidly: Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are among the fans of this method.
Face yoga consists of several fairly simple asanas. It is desirable to do them daily. It is best to do it before going to bed, when you have nowhere to hurry and there is no makeup on your face. For complete effect, face yoga requires maximum relaxation. You should start with 10 minutes, gradually increasing them to 20. The effect will not be noticable in just three weeks you will find impressive changes on your face.
