1. Make your forehead smoother.

  • Place your palms on your forehead. Your little fingers should be pressing the skin above the eyebrows, and the rest of the fingers should keep the skin on the forehead from wrinkling.
  • Try to raise your eyebrows in surprise, overcoming the resistance of your hands.
  • Relax the forehead and repeat the exercise 20 times.
  • On the last repetition use the maximum amount of effort. Over time, increase the number of repetitions.

2. Prevent smile lines.

  • Smile.
  • Gently push the area of the nasolabial folds back with your fingers.
  • Then gently pull the skin the opposite way with your fingers.
  • Strain the muscles against the pulling and feel the resistance with your fingers.
  • Repeat 10 times.

3. Make your lips bigger.

  • Imagine that you have to whistle. Purse your lips and strain their muscles as much as possible. Stay in this position for 5-10 seconds.
  • Return your lips to their natural state.
  • Repeat at least 5 times.

4. Get rid of your droopy lip corners.

  • Place your fingers inside the corners of your lips.
  • Gently pull the skin of your mouth with your fingers.
  • Resist the pressure from your fingers by straining the muscles of your lips, then release the muscles.
  • Repeat the exercise 15-20 times.

5. Fight eye wrinkles.

  • Put your index fingers near the inner corners of your eyes.
  • Gently massage the area under your eyes with small circular motions from the inner corners to the outer corners and back.
  • Repeat 5 times.

6. Make your smile lines less visible.

  • Keeping your lips closed, place your index fingers along the lines of your nasolabial folds.
  • Without moving your fingers, strain your lips, and press them as closely as possible to your teeth.
  • Hold the muscle tension for a few seconds, then relax.
  • Repeat 10 times.

7. Tone your cheeks.

  • Take a deep breath through your nose.
  • Puff out your cheeks, as if you're trying to exhale the air through your mouth without opening your lips.
  • Keep your cheeks puffed for 3-5 seconds, then slowly breathe out through your mouth.
  • Repeat 10 times.

It’s dangerous to say that vitamin E cream alone will protect from the sun and stop skin cancer because it won’t.


Face yoga is an amazing thing, girls. My mom practices it every day, and she looks 15 years younger her age :)
