Thanks to the stressful lives we lead and the amount of pollution around us, fine lines and wrinkles, along with fat start showing up on our pretty faces by the time we hit mere thirties.
And of course, we do not want them.
These 5 simple facial yoga exercises will help you lose fat and also slow down the signs of aging from appearing on your face:
For this one, you need to kneel down comfortably with your palms placed on your thighs. Next, stick your tongue outwards and stretch it downwards forcefully, extending it as much as you can. While doing so, exhale and make a roaring sound like a lion.
Love clicking selfies with a pout? You will fall in love with this facial yoga pose instantly because you just have to suck your cheeks in like you do while making that fish face in your selfies. Next, hold that position and try to smile as widely as you can with that pout.
Keep those laugh lines and flabby cheeks at bay by practicing the mouthwash technique. As the name suggests, all you’ve got to do is to fill up your mouth with air and transfer it from one corner to another the way you do while rinsing your mouth with water in the morning. Continue the procedure for 20-30 seconds, relax, and repeat.
Jivha Bandha (Locked Tongue Pose)
This one can give you multiple benefits of a chiseled jawline and a tighter face. Just sit comfortably and place the tip of your tongue on the upper wall of your mouth. Now, force your tongue against the wall till you can feel the stretch in your neck. Breathe from your nose while doing this and you’ll be just fine.
Sit comfortably and tighten your chin as if pulling it upwards against gravity. Hold the position till you feel the stretch in your neck. Release it gradually while breathing from your nose. Not only will this take care of fine lines around your lower half of the face, it’ll also make you get rid of the double chin.
