Doing Facial Yoga Can Apparently Make One Look Two Years Younger

Regular "face yoga" performed over a 20-week period has been found to help middle-aged women look younger, with fuller upper and lower cheeks.
Just 30 minutes of daily facial exercise could be the answer to looking younger in middle age, according to new American university research. According to the recent article that was published by JAMA Dermatology, Women who followed a 30-minute "facial yoga" routine several times a week appeared almost three years younger after 20 weeks.
Over the next 20 weeks they were told to continue the exercises at home - for the first eight weeks they did them for 30 minutes a day, and for the rest of the time they did the same exercises every other day.
Researchers believe this effect is due to the exercises increasing the size of muscles in the face.
Dermatologist Prof Murad Alam, of Northwestern University in Chicago, said: 'That's nearly a three-year decrease in age appearance over a 20-week period.
The exercises had names such as the "cheek lifter".
With your lips over your teeth, you smile to lift your cheek muscles up, placing your fingers lightly on the top part of the cheek so you can feel them lifting.
The scientific study at the Northwestern University of Chicago tested women aged 40-65 who performed 32 distinct facial exercises.
The women noted significant improvement in 18 out of 20 of their facial features after the study.
The study also didn't mention or monitor what else the women were doing to their faces throughout the experiment. Fat pads present in between the muscle and the skin are responsible for providing firmness to the cheeks and keeping a toned shape of the face.
Facial Yoga has built its demand recently as the authors called it rejuvenate the aging face, presumably by inducing underlying muscle growth.
There's definitely not enough evidence as yet to start adding facial yoga to your daily routine, but it's definitely something worth thinking about next time you spend hundreds of dollars on the latest anti-ageing fad.
