Over 50 Yoga Facial Massage

My evening meditation would like to share with you, is my secret to keeping my skin healthy.
I prefer this look below! lol. No make-up, no fuss.
There’s no filter on this picture and I am not wearing makeup. My skin does better without it. I am super sensitive.

My nightly routine is using my skincare line B’Tyli Natural Skin Therapies Sustainable Beauty Facial Oil or one of our organic serums and 20 – 30 minutes of a yoga facial massage. It works. Try it for a week and you will see a difference. You can check out the line on my store page.
Here’s some instructions to get you started. I switch it up based on my skin’s needs.

Always start with clean hands and a clean face. Use an oil, serum, or cleansing balm so your fingers can glide easily over your skin without it being too slippery. Massaging oils or serums into your skin can help the product penetrate your skin for deeper absorption.

  1. Tension relief

Stimulating this acupressure point helps to reduce eye strain. You can use it to calm down during the day or before you fall asleep.

Press into the inner corner of your eyes for 30 seconds.
Then circle gently in one direction for 30 seconds.
Repeat in the opposite direction.

  1. Eye circles

This exercise boosts oxygen circulation and alleviates puffiness. Use light, featherweight touches.

Place your ring fingers at the inside of your eyebrows.
Gently tap your fingers toward the outside of your eyebrows.
Press into your temples for a few seconds.
Continue to tap above your cheekbones to the inner corner of your eyes.
Continue for 30 seconds.

  1. Brow smoother

This exercise relaxes the frontalis muscle, which is the large muscle at the front of your forehead. Often this muscle is overused, which can cause stiffness, rigidity, and expressions of stress.

Place your fingertips at the center of your forehead, facing inwards.
Gently press your fingertips into your forehead as you move your fingers toward your temples.
Release your fingers.
Continue for 30 seconds.

  1. Neck massage

This exercise boosts lymphatic drainage and alleviates neck tension. It helps to correct sagging skin around your jaw and neck.

Tilt your head back slightly.
Place your fingers at the top of your neck.
Apply gentle pressure as you glide your fingers down to your collarbone.
Press into your collarbone for a few seconds before releasing your fingers.
Continue for 30 seconds.

  1. Jaw unlocker

This exercise engages the muscles in your jaw and neck.

While seated, make a fist with your left hand and place it on the outside of your jaw with your thumb facing down.
Turn your head toward your fist, feeling a stretch on the side of your neck.
Don’t allow your hand to move.
Then press your jaw toward your hand for a few seconds.
Gently release.
Repeat on the opposite side.

  1. Lion’s breath

Also known as Lion’s pose, this is a yogic breathing exercise that reduces stress and relaxes your face muscles.

From a seated position, lean forward to brace your hands on your knees or the floor.
Inhale deeply through your nose.
Open your mouth wide, stick out your tongue, and stretch your tongue toward your chin.
Forcibly exhale your breath across the base of your tongue while making a “ha” sound.
Relax and breathe normally.
Repeat up to 7 times.
Breathe deeply for 1 to 3 minutes.

  1. Face tapping

Tapping promotes relaxation and boosts circulation.

Start at your forehead and use your fingertips to rhythmically tap your skin.
Continue all along your face toward your jaw.
Next, tap the front of your neck and across your shoulders.
Then move up along the back of your neck to your head.
Finally, rub your palms together to generate heat.
Cup your hands over your face and breathe deeply for several breaths.
