Take facial exercises for example. It’s new, intriguing and it’s lighting the collective health and wellness blogosphere on fire. It certainly checks off all of the “exercise craze” boxes. But what are facial exercises exactly? And, more importantly, do they actually work?
Gather round as we explore this oddly exciting new branch of the health and wellness exercise library.
What Are Facial Exercises?
They are exercises, but for the face. Need more explanation? Perfectly understandable.
You do crunches to tighten up core muscles in the stomach and squats to strengthen the legs, so why not create a comprehensive workout routine to tighten up our most visible body part? It may sound silly and we’ll admit, the research is inconclusive, however the logic is sound!
The goal is to eliminate wrinkles, slim the face, and maintain a smooth, age-defying look without having to resort to the various dangerous and costly surgical or chemical interventions available out there. Because sometimes lotion and exfoliator doesn’t quite cut it.
Just like a well-balanced, full-body workout plan, a full-face routine incorporates a variety of muscle-targeting movements.
