Make your face the image that you want to present to the world. Our face activates about 50 various facial muscles for different emotions. With time these muscles slowly lose their original flexibility and firmness. One way to recover them is to do simple yet effective facelift exercises. Also known as facial yoga, this routine can significantly rejuvenate the skin. Doing it on a daily basis, not only will it enhance the face’s natural attributes, but also spare you from any pain and discomfort.
Here are some practical facelift exercises that really anyone can try:

Step two includes making the air in the mouth go from one side to another. Continue the exercise for 30 seconds. Another way is to purse the lips and keep it like that for next 5 seconds. After, stretch the mouth as wide as you can and do this for 5 seconds, too. By doing it dozen times a day, your skin, your jawline, as well as your mouth will get nicely toned.
Eyes and Brow push-ups
This eyes routine will reduce baggy and swollen skin around the eyes. First of all, apply some pressure on the corner of the eye socket with your fingers. Hold the finger for 15 seconds on the four inner corners. If you wish to raise the brow, start by placing the index finger and the middle finger above the brow. While you are making the brow move up and down, push it softly with fingers. As a result, these small push-ups for the eyes and brow done at least ten times a day will lift the area around the eyes.
Put the roses in your cheeks
Another easy-to-do at home exercise will bring the roses to those cheeks and boost them the way you like. First, put the fingers on your cheekbones. Then, softly stretch the skin up. After that, put the mouth in the form of the letter O. Thus, you shall feel your cheek muscles tightening. Keep doing it for 5 seconds. This easy exercise can be done from ten to fifteen series daily. Automatically, you will notice the fat skin tightening and more accentuated cheekbones. With such defined cheeks, all you need to do is to put on some blush and feel instantly younger.
Firm the neck
Fortunately or not, the neck never lies about our age. Still, there are some ways to make the age less noticeable on the most delicate part of our body. One way to go is with facial exercises. While you are sitting down in a chair, lift the head up so that the chin is facing the ceiling. Then, try puckering the lips, but keep the tongue out. Repeat it twice.
