Unfortunately, as we grow older, we begin to notice differences in both our face’s skin complexion and firmness. Over time, it is only natural for our skin to lose its elasticity, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. Additionally, our face’s complexion is affected by chemicals and products we expose it to and hormonal changes as we age, causing dark spots, redness, and an uneven complexion. But there is something new that is changing the way we think about our regular skincare routines, and it is all-natural—facial exercises.
While most of our bodies’ muscles are used and thus exercised daily, our faces comprise over 50 different muscles and we do not use most of them regularly. Facial exercises are exercises that are designed specifically to target the muscles in our faces to thin, tone, and tighten our facial skin. As with any form of exercise, facial exercises encourage healthy blood circulation throughout your face and provide a natural supply of oxygen to the skin, which results in the production of new skin cells that prevent wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and uneven complexion.
There are many benefits you can achieve by simply incorporating facial exercises into your regular skincare routine. A few of the most recognized benefits of facial exercises include:
Ultimately, incorporating facial exercises into your regular skincare routine will strengthen your face’s muscles and improve your overall appearance by slowing the appearance of aging across your face’s skin tone and complexion.
The answer to how often you should be doing facial exercises depends on the type of results you are looking to achieve, what fits into your lifestyle, and how quickly you want to see results. The more you can do your facial exercises, the better your results will be, and the sooner you will begin to see the improvements. If you are looking to truly maximize the benefits of facial exercises, we recommend performing them between 3 and 5 times each week for approximately 20-minute sessions. Although any number of facial exercises you can incorporate into your skincare routine will provide you with benefits you didn’t have before.
