Ok, so, after some
procrastination at work internet digging, we’ve discovered that you can make your face look more toned by moving your head around and being bougie while you do it (I paraphrase). It’s called face yoga, and it’s apparently a real thing. Hear me out. According to an interview with Birchbox, Meghan Markle—ever heard of her?—is a YUGE fan of face yoga or “facial massage techniques,” and credits it with her toned-looking and wrinkle-free visage, which got us to pay attention.
In said interview, Meghan said:
“I do facial exercises from one of my favorite aestheticians, Nicola Joss, who basically has you sculpt your face from the inside out. I swear it works, as silly as you may feel. On the days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are waaaay more sculpted.”
So, there you have it—and if it’s good enough for the future princess or whatever her title will be, it’s good enough for me. Apparently, doing these face yoga exercises can strengthen your face muscles and, therefore, relax lines and tension that can cause you to look tired. Here are the three funniest best face yoga exercises we found from Harpers Bazaar, Marie Clare, and the New York Times.
1. Stretch Your Eyes Like A Weirdo
Take your index finger and thumb and stretch your eyes, making a C shape. Your index finger should be on your eyebrow and your thumb on your cheek. Pull down with your index finger while trying to raise your eyebrows and make your eyes super wide. Hold, then repeat. Apparently this will make your forehead look better, although you’ll look really fucking stupid doing it.
2. Crane Your Neck To Search For Drama
Look straight ahead with your chin center and level. Then turn your head to the right so that your chin is directly over your right shoulder and even, then tilt your head back. Return forward and repeat with the other side. Do this until you give up or feel hotter, whichever comes first.
3. Pretend To Give A Blow Job
Hide your teeth with your lips, make an O shape with your mouth, then smile as wide as you can while keeping your teeth hidden. You’ll look really fucking stupid, but this will help with cheek wrinkles or saggy skin.
May smooth skin, princes, and blessings be upon you.
