Guidance about these exercises is mentioned below:
Face Yoga for Jawline
This is a very basic exercise that everyone has been practising since their childhood but never actually paid attention to its benefits. Well for people who do not know about this, one needs to pout their lips out tightening the cheek and chin muscles, now start pointing the head up in the sky and then the sides stretching the jawline in all the possible directions. This helps stretch the muscles which in turn helps in sharpening the jawline. Always make sure to stretch your neck properly in order to avoid any injuries and focus on breathing while doing it.
Face Yoga for Cheeks
As the name suggests this exercise focuses mainly on cleaning out the roughness of the skin making it smoother. To perform it one should place their index and middle finger just beside their nose and then gently rub it across the cheek in a circular fashion putting minimal pressure. This pressure you apply to your face helps release the contracted muscles that have been in motion and gives you a sense of relaxation. The most important thing over here is breathing simultaneously while applying pressure on the side of the face which boosts the pace and helps more in the process.
Yoga for the facial tension
Inversion of the body is something that relaxes the face muscles as it starts the flow of blood in your face and head releasing all the tension. One can start by standing by stretching your feet wide open and focusing on breathing. Now slowly put your elbows to your hip and start bending ahead. Do that till you can and try touching your head to the ground slowly, once you touch the ground put your hand on the ground and the support of the ground while still holding the position of your head pointed down. Be still for at least 3-4 minutes and then repeat it 3-4 times. A few important things to note is to always make sure you stretch before actually doing any such exercises and also if you suffer from any skin condition always make sure to consult a doctor before putting any pressure on your face.
