Yoga exercises to reduce wrinkles
Here we are suggesting some yoga exercises to reduce wrinkles, which may prove helpful in making you look younger.
Agraa Valaya - Take a comfortable stance with your hands on your hips and your legs about hip-width apart. Lengthen your torso as you bend forward from your waist slowly until you've bent as far as your flexibility allows. Move your hands down your legs and to the back of your calves as you bend forward. If possible, bring your hands to the back of your ankles. Allow your head and neck to be free, which is what gives this pose it’s wrinkle-fighting power. Breathe deeply in this pose. When you inhale, focus on lengthening your torso. When you exhale, allow yourself to relax more deeply into the forward bend. Stay in the pose for at least one minute or longer if you would like. Come out of the pose by moving your hands to your hips, then moving to a fully upright position during a long exhale.
Singh Mukh Mudra - It helps in toning all the muscles of the face and releases stress. To practice this, simply take a deep breath in and scowl and pucker up everything on your face and then exhale and release, sticking out your tongue like a lion yawning.
Bhrikuti Vilodan - A simple exercise of rising and lowering your eyebrows can be used to help reduce wrinkles in your forehead. To do this exercise, just place your fingertips on the outer edges of your forehead and apply pressure while raising and lowering your eyebrows.
Bhrikuti Valaya - To help reduce the wrinkling between the eyebrows you simply need to make the scowl so the wrinkle is present, and then place your index fingers in the middle of each eyebrow and pull out, away from the face. Hold it for about 5 seconds.
