The latest beauty trend taking over all social media platforms is called Face Yoga. A special workout for the face muscles – of which there are more than 50 – promising natural skin tightening and a more youthful appearance through targeted exercises. During these routines, tension is relieved, acupressure points are activated, and blood circulation is stimulated. It combines relaxation with anti-ageing effects – sounds like we have found the perfect complement to our daily skincare routine.

What is Face Yoga?

Face Yoga, often also described as facial yoga or Yotox, is a practice aimed at strengthening facial muscles and naturally tightening the skin. Originating from traditional Eastern techniques, this type of facial training has been adapted to meet the needs of modern society, combining physical exercises with elements of mindfulness and self-efficacy. So, Face Yoga not only enhances external appearance but also promotes inner well-being.

Mindfulness in Face Yoga means experiencing each movement and each breath consciously, fully embracing the moment.

Regular practice helps Face Yogis and Yoginis better manage stress and establish calmness and serenity in their daily lives.

Benefits of Face Yoga on skin health

In addition to the positive effects on mental health, Face Yoga offers a variety of benefits to the skin that go beyond simply relaxing facial muscles:

  • Improved circulation, leading to a healthier and more radiant complexion
  • Strengthening facial muscles, contributing to firmer skin
  • Promoting lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling and toxins
  • Relief of tension in the face, which often leads to expression lines.

Face Yoga isn't just a cost-effective method for skincare but also provides a natural alternative to invasive beauty procedures.

Research also shows that Face Yoga is an effective method to combat signs of skin ageing while boosting self-confidence. It's a simple yet impactful way to promote skin health and maintain a youthful, firm complexion.


How long & how often should you practice Face Yoga?

As with any form of exercise, regular practice is key to success. It is also advisable to start your Face Yoga routine with a warm-up phase, including light massages and making faces to loosen muscles and stimulate blood circulation. Next, dedicate approximately 15 to 20 minutes to targeted exercises for different facial areas. In addition to the exercises, other skincare products and fascia tools, such as those from VINOBLE COSMETICS, can be used.


Step-by-Step Guide to Face Yoga with VINOBLE COSMETICS

VINOBLE COSMETICS products are based on grape-seed oil and are produced with great care at the company’s own manufacturing site in South Styria. The products are also sustainable and vegan. It should therefore come as no surprise that other non-invasive anti-ageing methods such as face yoga are a welcome addition to the company’s skincare philosophy. With the VINOBLE COSMETICS face yoga set, daily skincare routines are perfectly supported.

  1. Start your Face Yoga routine by cleansing the face to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil thoroughly.
  2. Apply the lifting serum by gently tapping over the face from top to bottom with the fingertips. This nourishes the skin and prepares it for the upcoming exercises. Suitable for all skin types – from normal to dry, oily, and combination skin – the serum protects against environmental pollutants thanks to antioxidants from grape seed shell extract (OPC). Hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin and helps it retain moisture, gently reducing wrinkles.
  3. Forehead: Cradle the forehead using fingers and exert light pressure. At the same time try to lift the forehead. Hold this position for one minute.
  4. Cheeks: With the mouth wide open, ensuring that teeth are covered by the lips, raise the cheeks. Hold and relax alternately for approximately ten minutes.
  5. Lips: Tighten the lips, release slightly, tighten again. Repeat this exercise for several minutes.
  6. Eyes: Place the middle finger on the inner corner of the eye, the index finger on the outer corner. Do not exert pressure. Raise the lower lid slightly, creating a small slit. Release. Repeat this exercise ten times for each eye.
  7. Finally, massage the face with the cherry wood fascia tool to release any tension or adhesions that may still be present.

The fascia massage firms facial contours, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the texture of the skin. Using the fascia tool also stimulates blood flow to the skin, making the complexion appear rosy and radiant.

It's important to perform each exercise slowly and with full concentration to achieve the best results.

Especially when starting Face Yoga, it is advisable to perform the exercises in front of a mirror to ensure correct execution. Otherwise, there is a risk of achieving the opposite effect of skin tightening or even injuring or overstraining oneself.

Holistic approaches of anti-ageing

For those seeking to keep themselves and their skin holistically fit, incorporating Face Yoga alongside a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, adequate sleep, regular sport exercises, stress management, and a suitable skincare routine including UV protection is essential.
