Face Yoga, New Trend

I was skeptical to write a column about this but after doing a bunch of research, I got convinced. You heard right, the new trend is Face Yoga, which will eliminate the trip to the surgical room (if you've ever considered it) and the burden on your budget. Instead will smooth and prevent wrinkles that will enhance your aging look. Don't be fooled, we all age, sooner or later, but don't you think it would be fabulous to slow down this effect? even if it's only a little bit... I do. I haven't tried it but it will be for sure a routine that I will add into my busy schedule. I want to incorporate it twice a week, at the end of the day, however, you could also try it when you are driving or even at the office. Simple question comes to mind, if we exercise the rest of our body, why have we been neglecting the muscles from the neck up?

These simple exercises will release built-up tension and will rejuvenate your complexion. You are going to look a little bit funny when executing BUT who cares, if the result is a good one.

YOGA for Eyes:
- For removing the puffiness below the eyes. Place your three fingers under the eye, pull down, and try to close your eyes. Hold for 10 seconds and release. Repeat for 5 times.
- Rub your hands together briskly and place the palms over your closed eyes. Take deep breath and relax for 5 minutes. You can do this exercise in your bed or chair, at home or in office. This exercise relaxes the eyes and surrounding areas and soothe the optic nerve. This is very good for relieving tension headache.
- Take out your tongue as far as possible with eyes wide opened and hold for 60 seconds. This exercise is to flush the toxins from the eyes.

YOGA for Lips:
- Smile while pursing your lips. This exercise works on the muscles around lips.
- Throw flying kisses. This exercise for stronger and firmer lips.

YOGA for Whole Face:
- Inhale through your nose, make fists and squeeze all your facial muscles.
- Now exhale through your mouth, stick out your tongue, roll your eyes up and open your hands. Repeat three times.

YOGA for Wrinkles:
- Inhale through mouth and hold the air in your mouth to make a pose of a trumpet player. Hold for 1 minute and slowly exhale from nostrils. Repeat for 5 times. This exercise is good for removing laugh lines and overall toning up of cheeks.

Go on, try it out, you might be in for a BIG surprise...
