We know that facial massage and facial exercises amazingly help to increase our skin's blood circulation and thus leave us with perfect, rosy and glowing skin. But there are many benefits of massaging and exercising our face that go beyond good looks and help our face, body and mind in a whole new level.
Hundreds of face yoga experts, beauticians, even doctors and skin experts say, that massaging and exercising your face can have an amazing impact on your whole body and mind. Everything from lowering the stress hormone levels (cortisol) to relieving tension and boosting your immune system, you name it! Keep reading and learn about 3 main benefits of facial massage and exercise that you need to know today.
1. YOU FEEL HAPPIER, RELAXED AND ENERGIZED AFTER EVERY SESSION
Science shows that when we lower our stress hormone levels, we increase our life satisfaction and prone ourselves to positive disposition and feelings of well-being. In other words, we have more energy and positive emotions.
Because a facial massage is soothing, you automatically feel relaxed afterwards and gain all these amazing benefits of lowering cortisol levels.
If you do the facial massage and exercises by yourself, you also get that 5-10 minutes a day just for yourself, when you can relax and enjoy some "me-time". You regain the feeling of control and focus so you can easily block the external stressors that make you feel stressed and worried.
2. FACIAL MASSAGE AND EXERCISES CAN BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Speaking of cortisol levels, a clinical immunologist from Cleveland Clinic says, that "[…] stress decreases the body's lymphocytes — the white blood cells that help fight off infection. The lower your lymphocyte level, the more at risk you are for viruses, including the common cold and cold sores." High cortisol levels definitely impact your immune system, so he suggests practising different techniques for stress reduction, such as meditation and yoga.
Why not add up some facial workout too? While we also practice daily yoga and meditation (and we highly recommend it too), the facial exercise is the perfect way to start your day relaxed and energized. The great thing about the facial massage and facial workout is that you can do it lying in bed, so maybe the fresh flow of energy is just what is needed to kick you out of bed, prepared for the day.
3. LEARNING TO DO THE FACIAL MASSAGE BY YOURSELF SAVES YOU MONEY AND OPENS THE DOOR TO A WHOLE NEW FACE CARE ROUTINE
Why think about skincare, when you know that our face is built from muscles too? See, your face shape actually depends on 57 facial muscles. When the muscles atrophy, the face loses its toned, firm look and skin sags. Because the facial muscles and skin are interconnected, you automatically tighten your skin when building and massaging your facial muscles.
With the facial massage and facial workout, you stimulate blood circulation and increase oxygen flow, which is essential for cell renewal. It also helps with regeneration and promotion of collagen and elastin, which play a vital role in our skin's structure.
Instead of talking about skincare, let's talk about face care routine!
The best thing about any good routine is that it is "intimate", all yours and you can do it every day in the comfort of your own home. By turning the facial workout into your new face care routine, you can gain all those fantastic benefits you've just read about in this blog and much more.
The best part is that you can have all that in just a matter of minutes. We decided to share the facial workout with you in a digital form, so you don't have to go anywhere to learn the proper workout techniques, neither you have to buy any physical product and wait for it to be delivered.
With just a one-time purchase (at a promotional price, by the way ;) ), you get your own Facial Gym "personal trainer" on downloadable videos, which you can use forever.
What is so special about this product is that it is different than any other Facial Yoga methods. The exercises, based on a unique and dynamic isometric technique, take much less time, are easy to learn and very soothing because you actually massage your face with your hands when building your muscles at the same time.
Are you ready to relax, have more energy and take care of your face on a whole new level?
