Around the age of forty, the skin changes into a mature, demanding skin that requires much more attention. Due to a reduced ability to regenerate, it loses its elasticity and deeper wrinkles begin to form. Therefore, it needs more nutrients and protection from the environment. See how to achieve this with daily skin care and facial yoga.
The importance of daily skin care
If you want your skin to be healthy inside and out, it is important to give it proper care. This includes a daily skincare routine, in other words, daily beauty rituals, performed preferably mornings and evenings. Adherence to these rituals will ensure that your skin is cleansed, moisturized and treated.
When choosing products, always think about whether they go along with your skin type, i.e., what age group the product is for, whether it is suitable for normal, combination or problematic skin, etc.
What a daily skincare routine should include
A proper morning and evening routine should include cleansing, toning, moisturizing and sun protection. You should start by cleansing your face to remove dirt, makeup or its residue and oil build up.
Afterwards, we recommend to use a toner to keep your skin cleansed and hydrated. The next step should be the application of a serum to give your skin the necessary nutrients. We recommend Respibeauty – dry serum in mask form – which will provide your skin with 100% of active ingredients and will also provide sun protection. Next, apply a moisturizing cream for sufficient hydration. Following this skincare routine will help you keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
What is facial yoga
Facial yoga is an exercise aimed at strengthening and relaxing your facial muscles. Like traditional yoga, it can be very useful for releasing tension and improving muscle flexibility. Practicing facial yoga can also help reduce the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles and improve blood circulation in the face. This can lead to healthier and more youthful looking skin.
You can do it in a variety of ways. These include various exercises with your mouth, lips and cheeks, both with the help of an experienced practitioner, but also with the help of YouTube tutorials. Many facial yoga exercises can be done anywhere and anytime, which makes it an easily accessible and enjoyable way to take care of your face. Plus, you only need about 10 minutes a day.
How you can use facial yoga in your daily facial care
Facial yoga can be a great addition to your daily rituals. Practicing it can, as discussed above, help to release tension in your facial muscles and improve blood circulation. This will contribute to healthy and youthful looking skin.
Finally, we have 4 tips for you on how to integrate facial yoga into your daily skincare routine:
- Incorporate facial yoga exercises into your skin cleansing process when applying a cleansing gel or cream. You can also perform circular massage movements with your fingers all over your face.
- Incorporate the exercises into your moisturizing ritual. Do this by applying moisturizing cosmetics while moving your lips or lifting your cheeks.
- Practice facial yoga during your relaxation ritual before bed. Again, 5-10 minutes is enough. This will relieve tension and increase your chances of getting quality, undisturbed sleep.
- To increase its effectiveness, you can combine facial yoga with a facial massage or the application of a face mask. This step will help to improve your blood circulation and increase the effects of your skincare routine.
