What Do You Think of Facial Yoga?

Wrinkles are inevitable. Or are they? Some yoga instructors are teaching facial yoga classes, claiming that a few movements produce results along the lines of "natural Botox." The exercises, which include making kissy faces and puffing out the cheeks, sound odd — but some practitioners swear by the results. What do you think?

haha it sounds ridiculous but I'd definitely try it :P technically it really should work cause they're still muscles and will get toned, which always prevents sagging

My logic wants to argue that this wouldn't do anything for wrinkles. If making kissy faces (and the like) were going to help give you a botox effect, why do smokers get such awful wrinkles around their mouths from puffing away so much?!?! I'll pass.

Hmmm... another scheme to take your money; after all we women will try anything to be beautiful!

My yoga teacher brought this into class today, and we tried it for the first time. She said that she was unsure about the results (regarding less wrinkles, ect.), but that if you have a cold, or are getting sick these will help open up passages and you are able to release toxins easier and faster. I did feel like I was breathing easier and had better vision.

I think it would work if you did it over the years.

Seems just like a way to make money to me. Even if it were good for you, you could do it at home instead of paying for a class and making funny faces in public.

I also think this would cause more wrinkles. For the kissy face one specifically, since it's the same motion you do to suck on a straw (or smoke a cigarette) and it will cause lines around your lips.

This reminds me of the thing I saw on The Soup on E! about this neck strengthener and toner on the home shopping network.... Did anyone see that? The ladies put this thing in their mouth and then they would do a series of exercises with it. Really weird looking.....

I've heard of facial exercises, but I've never heard of facial yoga. I have to agree with Bella, the less facial expressions would probably be the best bet for not getting wrinkles as soon. But then again some muscles in the face would probably benefit from some toning. :ponder:

Maybe....I'm on the fence about it. It sounds less drastic than Botox, but I wonder how effective it is and if it's at all worth it.

Does it have to be referred to as "yoga" or are these just simple face excercises. Gimme a break!
