and enjoy some time for you giving you a greater sense of wellbeing.

The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method can reduce the need for further cosmetic surgery if you have already had a facelift. It can strengthen the underlying muscles which means they won’t lose tone and the skin will maintain its tight appearance.

How do I use The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method?

The exercises can be done sitting, standing, reclining or lying. At first you may want to practice them in a mirror and don’t worry if you laugh, this is will help release tension as well. Remove contact lenses or glasses before you start. There is no need to press too hard on any of the exercises, just a gentle pressure is sufficient to see quick results. Try to breathe deeply in and out through the nose unless otherwise directed as this will relax the mind as well as the muscles meaning The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method will be even more effective.

Always drink a glass of water after the programme to hydrate the skin and help with toxin removal. Following the rest of the Wellbeing techniques to live a healthy lifestyle will bring even quicker results as well. Doing yoga for the body will also help with making improvements to the face. Stay positive and happy, exercise the body, eat and drink healthily, don’t smoke and use a good sunscreen and moisturiser.

How does Face Yoga affect my skin?

All the exercises in The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method work the hypodermis or the lower layer of the skin (the muscles and fatty tissue), the dermis or the middle layer (the connective tissue) and the epidermis or the upper layer (the cells). By working all these layers correctly it will increase the blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and more nourishment to reach the cells of the skin (upper layer).  The result is a clear, healthy complexion with a beautiful glow which has less toxins and has a better ability to absorb moisture. The massage techniques in The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method are designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the middle layer of the skin giving you a smoother, more supple, tighter-looking skin. 

How long will it take to see results from The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method?

You will see and feel some difference straight away. Your muscles may feel they have had a good workout (just like with body exercise), you will see and feel less tension in the face and you will have a rosy glow.

Everyone has different faces so the time it takes to see changes varies from person to person. As a general rule you will start to see more of a long-term improvement in your face and neck after two weeks. After two-four months, you will notice you have less fine lines and less tension and people will notice you look healthier and more energised. Within six-nine months people have reported that they look and feel many years younger and feel more relaxed within themselves.

Remember, that taking some time each day for yourself to do this every day will also do wonders for your overall wellbeing and stress levels. This time to relax, do something for you, and knowing you will look and feel better as a result may mean you also notice yourself feeling calmer and happier.

Will doing The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method give me wrinkles?

No.  All the techniques work the face and neck in a controlled way. When you go to a gym or to an exercise class and work the muscles in the body you firm up the body and improve skin texture and tone. The same principle applies for the face and neck.
