10 Anti-Aging Exercises That You Can Do At Home

I believe that everyone deserves beautiful skin and I'm very excited to tell my readers about how to achieve it.

RelaxYou need close your eyes and cover your face with your hands, hold for a few seconds and then move hands to your neck. This is the preparation step to get the skin ready, so don’t apply much pressure and just relax.

Get oilRemember that a facial massage should not hurt. When you start, it might be a little bit painful, if it is, just don’t press as hard. Start by applying your favorite essential oil or any night moisturizer on your face and neck so when you massage, it doesn’t pull the skin. Put a few drops of the oil on your fingers, rub them for a few seconds to warm the oil to the body temperature.

Prepare your skinApply a little bit of pressure and sweep your hands from the center of your face outward. At this stage you activate the lymphatic system and also warm up the skin and prepare it for the actual massage.

Small circlesBegin rubbing the oil into the skin in small circular movements going outward and upward, starting from the center of your face.

Across the jawlineFor this routine, sweep across the jaw bone from your chin up to the ears using your index and middle fingers on both hands. Apply slight pressure, but not too much. This is a great way to stimulate lymphatic drainage and make the contour of your face firm and tight. Repeat this exercise 6 times.

Lifting cheeksUsing your index and middle fingers, find the base of the cheekbones and move the fingers up while making V-shape. This exercise works on lifting your cheeks and preventing them from sagging. Repeat 6 times.

CheekbonesWith the inner side of your hands, press on the base of the cheekbones and drop your head onto your hands. Hold for about 10 seconds. Place the inner side of your hands on the base of the cheekbones and roll your hands under your cheekbones. Try repeating this 6 times.

Around your eyesWhen you massage around your eyes, it will help with any puffiness or swelling. Start with a slight patting under the eyes with your index and middle fingers. This will warm up the area and prepare it for the massage. Place your index fingers near the corners of the eyes and start sweeping under the eyes with your middle fingers.

ForeheadPlace your fingers just above your brows and apply some pressure, gliding outward and upward, up to the hairline. Repeat this 6 times and remember that this exercise targets the fine wrinkles on the forehead.

NeckFor this technique, you place your hands on the middle of your neck and sweep from the center towards your shoulders with some pressure and repeat 3 times each side.

Remember that our hands also deserve to be spoiled. Rub your hands together until all the oil gets absorbed, and make sure that you don’t miss the fingers and the backs of your hands. Regular oil treatment will help with dryness and prevent wrinkles.
