Yes! Besides muscles, fat, and skin, there are also very important meridians and acupressure points on your face that are connected to your internal organs. Face yoga includes stimulation and activation of meridians and acupressure points to improve energy flow to your internal organs, leading to the improvement of your health and well-being.

We need to understand that everyone’s face structure is different and the results may vary based on the face-gravitation type, lifestyle habits, and dedication. Like other exercises, for Face Yoga, you can achieve the results faster if you follow the yoga routines and a healthy diet, sleep well, and take care of yourself emotionally.

Stress and other emotions show on your face more than you think. So, keep in mind that your progress may vary from day to day as well.

There are many factors which cause premature skin aging, and most of them are related to lifestyle.

  • Some of the major causes include:
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Excess alcohol consumption
  • Nicotin
  • Psychological stress
  • UV radiation in sunlight

These factors provoke the increased formation of free radicals which are the major cause of premature skin ageing.

By making changes in a few lifestyle related habits you can prevent premature aging signs like fine lines and wrinkles. Always take care of your skin when you're out in the sun and use products with sun protection for your skin type.

The key to diminishing and preventing future wrinkles is right at your home and in your daily routine. Consuming the right quantity of water, high-quality proteins, vegetables, and getting adequate sleep can decrease and prevent wrinkles!

Also remember - stress-free lifestyle is one that reaps astounding rewards!

Face oils are the best-kept skincare secret to naturally clear and flawless skin. Given below are different types of face oils which are the best for different skin types.

Indian spices are amazing to heal and rejuvenate skin with their antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory agents. Given below are five most commonly used spices that are good for your skin.

Turmeric: Traditionally known as Indian saffron because of its deep yellow-orange colour, turmeric provides amazing healing benefits, not just inside the body, but also on your skin.

Cinnamon: We use cinnamon abundantly in our foods to add flavour, but for years now people have been using this to treat various skin ailments and disorders.

Pepper: Pepper, when mixed with other ingredients (e.g. yogurt/ turmeric + rose water) and applied on the skin can loosen up the pores and facilitate the removal of blackheads and acne.

Ginger: Ginger has some awesome beauty benefits. Eating ginger can help fight wrinkles! It is packed with antioxidants, which reduce toxins in the skin cells and increases blood circulation, helping to reduce the signs of aging.

Garlic: The biggest benefit of garlic for skin is anti-ageing. Allicin, an organic compound present in garlic, destroys some of the harmful free-radicals that cause skin cell damage.
