Face Yoga? Yes, you read right

Those who do it know that the benefits of yoga on body and mind are extraordinary. Those who don't practice it, sense it: yoga’s fame today is indisputable.

What most people don't know is that yoga isn't just for the body. Face yoga is a fairly unknown but extraordinary practice which literally slows down wrinkles.

The explanation is simple: moving the muscles in your face and neck in an organised fashion improves blood circulation (enabling the cells to get more oxygen), stimulates fibroblast production (responsible for skin firmness), releases toxins, stimulates collagen and elastin production and gives your skin a healthy, pink glow.  

Oddly enough, the skin on the face is what we pay the most attention to - yet we forget to make gestures like the ones in face yoga that are amazingly effective. Imagine if you added face yoga to your regular beauty routine? 

Advantages? Loads

  • Sculpts the face. Tones the skin and makes it flexible.
  • If you do it at night, it relaxes. 
  • You don't need a special place or specific time to do it. You can do face yoga right now, while you’re reading this article.
  • Everything we do for our wellbeing is good for us.

At MartiDerm we’re experts in making skin firmer. In fact, our famous ampoules are especially designed to add firmness, brightness and moisturisation.

The proteoglycans present in most of them retain water in the skin and improve skin structure and suppleness. Vitamin C, another of our core ingredients, is a powerful antioxidant that plays a role in collagen synthesis.

Specifically:
Proteos Liposome ampoules are especially recommended for combination/oily and sensitive skin, with a fresh, lightweight texture that feels pleasant for this skin type and no oily sensation. Proteos Hydra Plus SP ampoules provide intense moisturisation, are good antioxidants and brighten the skin. They contain UVA/UVB sunscreen for protection from radiation. Proteos Hydra Plus ampoules provide intense moisturisation, are good antioxidants and brighten the skin. One of the active ingredients, plant proteoglycans, deeply moisturises the skin, retains water and has firming properties. 

Photo-Age ampoules, from the Platinum range, are an intensive anti-aging treatment preventing the signs of photoaging and repairing the skin after sun exposure, moisturising and intensely brightening the face. Finally, Skin Complex+ ampoules from the Black Diamond range are an intensive, effective anti-aging and antioxidant product. The combination of active ingredients facilitates penetration to the innermost layers of the skin, improving firmness and suppleness.

A face yoga class has now been included in many gyms, where it is proving very successful. Women who have tried it confirm a very pleasant post-class feeling. And the most disciplined say they notice their skin looking firmer and more toned after a number of sessions. They all agree there’s a lot of giggling at the start of each class, as the exercises are usually done in front of the mirror. And we all know that laughter is an added appeal in any sport. That’s why it’s now one of our favourite #SmartAging lifestyle activities. Practice #SmartAging!
