If you’ve been paying any attention to pop culture in the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard about the Megan Markle craze that’s swept the country since the royal weddings. Lately, she’s also been making headlines in the wellness community for her unique “face yoga” regimen. Other A-listers have also been touting the benefits of this practice, including Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
So, what exactly is “face yoga?” Face yoga, or facial exercises, are poses and stretches you can do with your face in order to keep skin smooth and plump. It works by toning the muscles underneath and can help fight visible signs of aging like fine lines and sagging. It’s a much healthier alternative to traditional anti-aging methods like facial fillers or surgery. If this all sounds too good to be true, you should know that scientists have also been studying this phenomenon, and the results are promising.
