What is face yoga?
It is a set of facial exercises that are designed to improve blood circulation, so it is properly oxygenated, faster regeneration and repair processes take place in it, and also more efficiently remove toxins from the body. It is also worth knowing that in the face there are more than 50 muscles. Their contractions are largely responsible for the formation of wrinkles and furrows. Moreover, the increase in muscle volume that can be achieved through exercise improves skin tone.
An important advantage of facial yoga is the fact that the first results are visible already after 2-3 weeks of its use, and also that it can be performed almost anywhere and at any time.
What exercises to do?
