10 Proven Ways to Keep Your Skin Young and Healthy

9. Practice Facial Yoga

Facial yoga has become increasingly popular, as it provides the same benefits as a face lift surgery without the risks and cost.

Regularly practicing facial yoga can lead to fewer wrinkles, less eye puffiness, a firmer jaw line and no sagging skin. This happens because facial yoga poses increase production of collagen, which is the skin’s fountain of youth that declines with aging and sun damage. It even improves muscle tone and makes the skin look more supple.

A 2014 study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found facial yoga to be effective for skin rejuvenation. However, evidence from large, randomized controlled trials will be needed before conclusions can be drawn.

To reduce double chins, try this facial yoga pose:

  1. Sit comfortably, keeping your head straight.
  2. Pout your lips and move them slowly to the left, stretching your cheek.
  3. Turn your head to the left and lift it upwards at a 45-degree angle.
  4. Hold this position for 3 to 5 seconds.
  5. Repeat again before doing it twice to the right side.

To remove smile lines, try this facial yoga pose:

  1. Place both palms on your temples.
  2. Push up and back with your hands to lift your face.
  3. Open your mouth gently and make an “O” shape.
  4. Then, drop your jaw.
  5. Hold for 5 seconds and repeat 2 more times.

Facial yoga mainly focuses on the muscles in your head and neck. If done correctly, it can help keep your face looking younger for longer.

10. Avoid Excessive Scrubbing

Gentle exfoliation is a great way to get rid of excess dead skin cells and bring back your skin’s radiant glow. But over-exfoliation can cause irritation and inflammation.

Many of us rub too vigorously when using a scrub. The constant friction and abrasion on the skin can strip away the natural oils, leading to irritation and dryness. It can even cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, leading to darkening of blemishes.

The line between healthy exfoliation and over-exfoliation is pretty thin and blurry. Over-exfoliation can lead to:

  • Loss of moisture in the skin,
  • Patchy and peeling areas of dryness,
  • Blotchy and red skin,
  • Increased sensitivity to your regular products,
  • A burning sensation when anything is applied to the skin,
  • Skin that feels hot to the touch, and
  • Annoying itching.

If you have any of these symptoms after scrubbing or exfoliating, take it as a warning sign that something is wrong.

Exfoliation should be done only once every week or two, depending upon how sensitive your skin is.

  1. Most definitely don’t want to be disrespectful, BUT at 45 years old, it has dawned on me that I don’t have any more time or money to waste on products that just don’t work..or, are simply not that impressive. I’ve spent more than my fair share the last 20 years! ? If you’re interested in incredible medical-grade skincare (with stem cell technology) at wholesale prices, I would love to answer any questions you have to help you. ?
    Ask me about free samples!

  2. People with acne have oily skin so washing the face in the morning is required. This article is obviously not for people with acne so it should have never even been mentioned.
