- Using your fingertips, apply the oil to your face and neck in gentle, upward motions. Be sure to cover all areas where you will be performing face yoga exercises.
- Engage in your face yoga routine, which may include exercises like cheek lifts, forehead smoothers, or eye squeezes.
- As you complete your exercises, take deep, calming breaths.
- While performing your exercises, pay close attention to acupressure points on your face. Use a little extra oil to apply light pressure to these points, enhancing circulation and relaxation.
