Stop using anti-aging creams and start doing facial exercise every day, claims a team of specialists. A recent study shows that doing these exercises could help one look younger.
Doing facial exercises for 30 minutes every day can reportedly help people maintain the health of their skin. The team claims that even five months of these exercises could wipe off three years.
What Does a Facial Exercise Actually Entail?
Face yoga or facial exercises is a recent beauty trend that promises people that they will look younger without using invasive alternatives like surgery or botox.
These exercises help increase the blood circulation in all of the layers of the skin. By doing so, people could lower the risk of wrinkles. As such, the skin is reportedly going to age slower.
Some of the poses used as an anti-aging method are The Joker, fishy lips, and the lion. This technique is known for stimulating the elastin and collagen production in the dermis. It could help ensure a fresh look.
Northwestern University researchers are behind a new study that shows that the exercises might actually work. The team recruited twenty-seven middle-aged.
They were monitored while performing 30 minutes of facial exercise over a period of 5 months. An independent panel stated that they appeared to look three years younger after they completed all of these exercises. The study lead mentioned that this is just the beginning.
There is little known about facial exercise or their effects. One good thing is that they can’t hurt. Unfortunately, nobody knows for sure whether these exercises actually work.
Strengthening and enlarging the facial muscles are their usual purpose. By doing so, the face should look younger and more toned. Also, this method is free, non-invasive, and non-toxic.
