#MakeoverMonday #FacialFitness Don't we all wish our face had the ability to tone our face while doing Pilates or gym? While you start using various creams to reduce lines, you must also start performing facial exercises. Facial exercises are known to be very effective in reducing wrinkles and further preventing formation of new ones. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨* ⚡Today's exercise helps tone and lift upper eyelids + strengthen and tone lower part of the face. Reduces and prevents lines and hollow under the eyes. ♦1. Flirty Eyes: Place index fingers under the eyes, cover the teeth with the lips and pull top and bottom lip away from each other. Look up towards the ceiling and flutter the eyes as much as you can. You should feel the muscle under the eyes engage. Go on for 30 seconds x 2 sets. ♦2. Accupressure Point: Place the index finger between the eyebrows. Pressing on this point increases blood circulation in this area which will improve the skin tone. This exercise also helps reduce stress and promotes better sleep. 10 times Add circles clockwise and anticlockwise then relax. 10 each side. Relax and repeat twice more.
