How to Define Cheekbones with Facial Yoga

By Contributor

You can lift sagging facial skin with facial yoga. Facial yoga exercises firm up the muscles beneath the skin using resistance techniques that focus specifically on facial muscles. Whether you're 28 or 62, your face will look firmer and more youthful after a few weeks of facial yoga.

Concentrate on the tip of your nose. Move all your facial muscles forward, as if you were trying to get them to touch the tip of your nose. Bring the brow down, pucker the lips to bring them up, and pull the jaw forward and up. Hold for 10 seconds.

Open your eyes as wide as you can, and raise your brows without creating lines or creases on your forehead. Focus on stretching all the muscles away from the tip of you nose. Open your mouth as wide as you can, as if you were pulling it away from the center of your face. Hold this exercise for 10 seconds. Alternate the exercise from Step 1 and this exercise 10 times.

Place your three middle fingers on the apples of your cheeks, gently pressing down to exaggerate a smile. Lift and release the muscles of the upper cheeks using slight resistance from your fingers, as if doing cheek push-ups. Recline your head and gaze at the ceiling. Do three sets of 15.

Gently purse your lips, and bring the top lip to touch the bottom of the nose by extending the jaw and moving it up. Lift the cheek muscles as you did in Step 3. Hold this position for 10 seconds and relax. Repeat 10 times. This exercise not only firms sagging cheeks, it also tightens the jowls.
