With 2.7 billion views on TikTok, #faceyoga has been one of the hottest beauty topics in the last few years. Facial exercises have been popping up in our feeds, celebrities such as Madonna have been promoting them, and here on MYSA, our face yoga post has been the most visited one in 2023. 


While many cosmetic treatments, such as Botox, fillers, and lasers, are available to smooth and plump the skin, they can be expensive, invasive, and risky. Fortunately, there are safer, non-invasive, effective ways to tone your face and reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and lips: a face workout is one of them. 


Face yoga exercises speed up blood circulation, release tension points, stimulate collagen and elastin production, reduce wrinkles, and tone the muscles on your face. Those exercises include activating the facial muscles and using your hands to help - today, we're bringing five exercises that are easy to do and only take a few minutes a day. You can exercise in the morning, which will help remove puffiness and make your face more energized and radiant, or as a part of your bedtime routine, which will improve circulation and help skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin.   

5 Effective Exercises for Eyes and Lips

When done regularly, these facial exercises can improve your facial posture and help you achieve a younger-looking, plumper appearance. Before you start, cleanse your face, apply a moisturizer to hydrate your skin, and prepare it for facial stretching and toning exercises. You can also use a mirror to check your form and avoid overstretching or straining your muscles.  

The Eye Stretch

  • Hold this position for a few seconds, then look down as far as possible.

  • Do this exercise daily for 5 minutes.

The Happy Hands

  • It should look like you’re making your fingers force your lips to smile.

The Lip Plumper

  • Place your index fingers under your eyebrows.
  • Lift your eyebrows up with your fingers while closing your eyes tightly.
  • Hold the pose for a few seconds, then relax.
  • Repeat this five times.
  • Do this exercise daily for 5 minutes.

What Are the Benefits of Face Yoga?

Facial exercises have several benefits for your skin and muscles, such as:

  • Strengthening the muscles in your face can help prevent sagging and drooping, as well as improve your facial expressions and speech.
  • Increasing blood circulation to your face can help deliver more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, as well as remove toxins and waste products. This can result in a brighter, smoother, and healthier complexion.
  • Stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives skin structure, elasticity, and firmness. Your collagen levels decrease as you age, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. Face exercises can help boost your collagen synthesis, which can help plump up and smooth out your skin.
  • Reducing stress and tension in your face. Stress can cause you to frown, clench your jaw, or furrow your brow, creating wrinkles and making you look older. Face exercises can help you relax your facial muscles and help reverse the effects.

How to Enhance Face Exercises With a Microcurrent Device?

Using a microcurrent device designed especially to emphasize the lips and reduce hollowness around the eyes can amplify the effects of face yoga exercises. BEAR™ 2 eyes & lips uses 270 uA of microcurrent and T-Sonic™ massage to tone and firm your facial muscles, decrease puffiness, and boost radiance. Regular use of a microcurrent device can help you achieve faster and more noticeable results from face exercises, such as:

  • Lifting and firming the facial contours
  • Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improving skin texture and elasticity
  • Brightening the complexion
  • Boosting collagen production
  • Stimulating microcirculation
  • Improving lymphatic drainage
  • Accelerating the skin renewal process

To use a microcurrent device, you simply need to apply serum to your face first to ensure proper conductivity and then glide it over different areas of your face in specific directions and motions, as advised by the producer.  


A microcurrent facial is safe for most skin types and colors, but it’s not recommended for people with heart conditions, pacemakers, metal implants, or pregnant women. You should also consult with your doctor or dermatologist before using one if you have any medical concerns or skin conditions.   


Yoga for the face exercises are a natural and effective way to improve the appearance and healthy look of your face. They can help you achieve a more lifted, toned, and youthful look, as well as reduce stress and tension in your face. Using a microcurrent device like BEAR™ 2 eyes & lips can get you faster and more noticeable results. 


Now it's your turn. Have you tried facial exercises or a microcurrent device before? We'd love to hear your experiences and tips.

Hello there, Thank you for the question. It is not the topic of this post but we'll be happy to answer it. Dealing with acne can be challenging, but there are several effective strategies you can try to help manage and reduce breakouts. Firstly, maintaining a consistent skincare routine tailored to your skin type can make a big difference. Additionally, keep your skin clean by washing it gently with something like LUNA twice a day. Don't forget the power of a balanced diet and staying hydrated; consuming plenty of water and incorporating nutrient-rich foods can support overall skin health. Lastly, if you find that over-the-counter treatments aren't providing the results you desire, don't hesitate to consult with a dermatologist. They can offer personalized advice tailored to your specific needs. Remember, consistency and patience are key when it comes to managing acne, but with the right approach, clearer skin is within reach!
