What is Face Yoga?

What Does This Have to Do With the Lymphatic System?

Pros of Face Yoga

  • FaceYoga promotes circulation (collagen and elastin building), hydration and ideal lymphatic flow, which enhance skin health naturally.
  • Touch releases the hormone oxytocin, which allows us to feel more connected with a greater sense of love and well-being towards ourselves.
  • Facial yoga allows the hands to access vital acupressure points through the face, which has a restorative effect on all the glands, organs, tissues and the nervous system.
  • It follows Traditional Chinese medicine channel pathways, bringing the entire body back into a state of homeostasis. Dark circles, anyone? It could be a sign the kidneys need some attention.
  • Face Yoga needs no fancy equipment and can be done in the privacy of your own home.
  • With only a few weeks of practice, visual benefits are fewer fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, and less puffiness overall.
  • This form of yoga rewards you with a brighter complexion because of increased blood circulating to the face.

Cons of Face Yoga

  • You’ll need to learn the exercises and dedicate time to practice for optimal results. Like anything done infrequently, you can’t expect good results without putting in consistent work.
