“Face Fitness” By Roslyn Smith


Happy, happy new year! With the new year comes our resolutions, hopes and desires. Some of the most common resolutions are definetly getting in shape, toning up our muscles and losing weight. But we seldom remember to tone and shape up our facial and neck muscles. So how about we add face fitness to our many resolutions this year. We have 43 facial muscles that often forgotten about, but exercising them will help define your jawbone, enhance cheekbones, and get rid of excess fat in the face. Microcurrent and face yoga are a couple methods that may help with muscle toning, and skin tightening to lift and firm up the skin.

Face yoga was designed with specific poses for the face, targeting the jawline, forehead, mouth, and eyes. For best results, you should do it every day for at least 5 to 6 days out of the week.

Face yoga poses: “Free Your Tongue”, “Temple Dancer Eyes” “Smiling Fish Face” “Lion Face Part I” Lion Face Part II” “Surprise Me!” “Satchmo”” Marilyn” “Baby Bird” “Budda Face”. Now I know you may be thinking this sounds silly, and I thought the same until I tried them. I really did feel and see a difference in a short period of time, as do many people. All I can say is try them out for yourself.
