Just a few minutes of facial exercises every day can give you incredible wrinkle-smoothing results — like a mini, non-invasive facelift! It’s the natural way to smooth those wrinkles.
Increasing the blood supply to key areas in your face improves your complexion, circulation and appearance of your skin. Here’s how to give yourself an anti-ageing facial massage.
1. The owl
Firms up your forehead and reduces lines and wrinkles. Make C shapes on your face placing your index fingers above and parallel to your eyebrows and your thumbs at the top of your cheekbones. Pull down with the index fingers while trying to raise your eyebrows for 2 seconds. Repeat 3 times then hold for 10 seconds.
2. Circle the eyes
Reduces bags, puffiness and wrinkles by improving blood flow and removing toxins.Place your index fingers where your eyebrows start, and begin gently tapping around your eyes, down along the cheekbones and to the inner corners of your eyes. Do this 3 times in one direction and then 3 times in the other.
3. Smile smoother
Softens the lines around your nose and mouth. Hide your teeth with your lips and make a small ‘O’ shape. Keep your lips tight and smile, then repeat and hold then smile. Place your index finger on your chin. Tip your head back, move your jaw up and down for a few seconds and repeat 3 times.
4. The V
Good for drooping eyelids, crow’s feet, puffiness around the eyes. Place the middle fingers at the start of the eyebrow next to the nose, then with the index fingers, apply pressure to the outer eyebrows. Look up, raise lower lids upwards to make a squint, then relax. Repeat 6 times then close eyes tightly for 10 seconds.
