Once or twice a day
It’s ideal to practice face yoga twice a day for faster results, but if you only have time for once a day, that’s absolutely fine. Ideally, do face yoga in the morning to awaken your facial muscles and again before going to bed to release all the tension you’ve accumulated during the day and to reset your face. Remember also that paying attention to sleeping habits and facial expressions during the day is vital for you to achieve the greatest results.
Warm up that pretty face
I would normally say that each yoga pose should be done 3 times. I recommend doing 5 poses in each session, whereas the first pose is a warm-up pose to prepare your face for action. The warm-up doesn’t need to take long, but just as you would walk a little before starting to run, do the same thing here. After warming up, you are ready and able to focus on the specific muscles you want to target.
Things take time
Be patient and remember that everything new takes time to learn. Sometimes you’ll wrinkle your forehead, hold your breath or tense up while performing a pose because you’re focusing too much. It’s all good – soon you’ll be familiar with the poses, your facial expressions and muscles and will find it fascinating that YOU are now in charge of your facial moves.
