5 face yoga moves to help you fight ageing and why it's important to eat more almonds

Time don't wait or stop for anyone but this is our responsibility to fight with age that is increasing with time and looks gorgeous. In order to do that, keep your face skin healthy and wrinkles free is very important.



UK-based face yoga expert Camilla Bankes shares a few simple moves to help fade wrinkles and improve skin tone over time.



1. The owl - to target forehead lines


Make a big 'C' shape with both thumbs and index fingers. Place your index fingers just above your eyebrows, and your thumbs on your cheeks. Gently pull down with the index fingers while trying to raise your eyebrows, widening the eyes. Hold for two seconds, relax and repeat.




2. The smile smoother - to target laughter lines


Make an 'O' shape with your mouth. Keeping your lips tense, smile wide. Return to the 'O' shape and repeat 10 times. Then hold the smile shape and place your index finger on your chin. Move your jaw up and down, tilting your head back as you do so.




3. The pufferfish - to firm cheeks


Puff out one cheek as much as you can. Place your fingers just above your top lip to smooth out any fine lines created as you do the exercise. Tap your cheek 15 times. Repeat on the other side.




4. The V - to target crow's feet


Put your middle fingers together between your eyebrows, then apply pressure to the outer corners of your eyes with your index fingers. Look up and start to squint. Feel your lower eyelids move up as much as they can before relaxing. Repeat 10 times.




5. The giraffe - to tone the neck


Look straight ahead and place your fingertips on the top of your neck. Gently smooth the skin down as you tilt your head back. Repeat five times. Push your lower lip out as far as possible, place your fingers on your collarbone, point your chin up and pull the corners of your mouth down. Hold for four deep breaths.




5 reasons to eat more almonds



  • Almonds are rich in vitamin E which helps to neutralise damaging free radicals in the body and promotes healthy skin and hair.


  • They contain a high level of fibre, which is essential for a healthy digestion tract and to eliminate problems such as constipation or bloating.


  • Almonds are a good source of calcium and magnesium which the body needs for a healthy heart and bones and good blood pressure.


  • They contain potassium, essential for normal blood pressure.


  • Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats (the good kind), which are good for heart health and essential for organ function.
