The V is a great facial exercise to treat or to get rid puffiness of the eyes, eye bags, crow’s feet or drooping eyelids. You can say it’s a good alternative to eye surgery or Botox. However, you have to do the massage regularly to get the best results.
The first step is to place you pointer finger and middle finger at the inner corners of your eyebrows. It’s like your forming a “V” with your fingers.
Do this with both hands for both eyes so you can do more things at once. Start applying a bit of pressure to the fingers.
Next step is to look up. Then raise your lower eyelids upwards. If you feel you are doing a squint, then you are doing it right. Hold it for a couple of seconds, and then relax.
Repeat the steps for six times. Finish the massage by tightly shutting your eyes for 10 seconds.
The Smile Smoother
The Smile Smoother is a great facial massage to lift up that “sagginess” of your facial skin. It’s also a great massage for diminishing or minimizing that cheek lines. If you do this facial massage regularly, then you could be saving yourself from dermal fillers and lower face lift.
The first step is making an O shape with your mouth. It’s important that you hide your teeth while you do this step. Hence, it’s like covering your teeth with your lips while you create an “O” shape.
Once you have done the first step, you can then proceed to the second step. While keeping the “O” shape, start smiling as widely as you can. Repeat this step up to 6 times.
Next, hold that smile while forming that “O” shape. Then, place your index finger on your chin. While doing this, start moving your jaw up and down. While you are doing this, tilt your head to the back a little.
Smooth the Brow
Smooth The Brow is a great facial massage if you want to smoothen that horizontal lines found in your forehead. Doing this massage regularly is like getting a Botox on your forehead. Only this massage is a lot safer and a lot cheaper than Botox.
The first step is to place four of your fingers, except the thumb on your forehead. Both of your hands should be facing each other, and spread your fingers evenly from the top of the eyebrow to the hairline.
Then, start pulling your fingers outwards. Do it slowly and gently, along with light pressure. You will feel that relaxing stretch of the skin when doing this.
Release the hold and let your skin relax. Repeat the massage 10 times for best results.
