Want a free, natural face lift? Skip the expensive creams or Botox, and incorporate facial exercises into your daily routine. Our faces contain a whopping forty-three muscles that can be tightened using a number of poses. These simple moves only take a few minutes out of your day, but the rewards will be long-lasting. By incorporating facial exercises into your daily routine, your muscles will relax, ultimately reducing wrinkles. And the benefits aren’t only physical – they can also help improve your mental health. Smiling and stretching the mouth can boost one’s mood and strengthen the mind-body connection.
