FACE LIFTING EXERCISES…The Secret to Younger Looking Skin! Dr. Mandell

Doing facial exercises, or facial yoga, helps strengthen the muscles in your face, which can leave your skin looking younger and fresher. 

  • Work your mouth and jaw by smiling widely, or by pushing up on the corners of your smile with your fingers.
  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles on your forehead by pulling on your forehead and doing brow lifts.
  • Work your neck and jowl area by tilting your head up and moving your mouth and tongue.
  • Do facial exercises 6 to 7 times per week for best results.
  • Pull on your forehead with your index finger to smooth lines. Put your index fingers just above each of your eyes, then pull down on your eyes while trying to raise your eyebrows. Repeat 10 times to help firm your forehead.[2]
  • This exercise helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
  • You can also push up on your eyebrows with the palm of your hands.
  • Do brow lifts to strengthen your forehead. Using two fingers in a peace sign, and place your fingernails over each eyebrow. Gently push that skin down with your fingers, then push your brows up and down. Repeat the up and down motion with your brows 10 times.[3]
  • Do 3 sets of 10, take a short rest, then do another 3 sets of 10.
  • Stretch your eyelids to smooth lines and wrinkles. Sit down and close your eyes. With your lids relaxed, use your index fingers to lift up your eyebrows. While lifting, keep your eyes closed to stretch your eyelids as far as possible. Hold this position for 10 seconds, then relax and repeat 10 times.[4]
  • Your eyelids are easy muscles to work, and don’t need much resistance. Using your fingers can help you stretch them out, removing wrinkles and giving you stronger eyelids.
  • Do an eye squeeze to prevent crow’s feet. Pull your lips downward so that your facial muscles tighten, then pull your lips to one side. Squeeze one eye shut for one second, then repeat 10 times, holding your lips to the side. Then do the other eye. Do 3 sets of 10 for each eye, take a short rest, then do another 3 sets of 10.[5]
  • Because it uses so many different muscles, this exercise can help to stretch out your entire face, not just your eyes.
  • Stretch your face while holding your eyes to build muscle. Make a C around your eyes using your thumbs and index finger. Make sure your index finger is over your eyebrow and thumb against your cheek. Shut your eyes, and slowly squeeze your eyelids close together. Relax the tension without opening your eyes. Repeat squeezing and relaxing your eyelids 25 times.[6]
  • This will help to build the muscles around your eyelids to give you more awake-looking eyes.
