Does Face Yoga Really Work?

Does Face Yoga Really Work?

Having and maintaining good skin may be in our genes but it also requires some consistent work on our part.
Those of you who practice yoga for your body regularly probably notice a great difference. The catch is “regularly”. Practicing anything once in a great moon won’t work unless you have luck on your side. If you didn’t care for your skin your entire life and started to pay attention in your 60’s, I don’t know if you can do much to reverse the aging. I don’t know about you but I do my best to age gracefully. I have a daily routine that I have been following for some time which I wanted to share with those who might be interested.

I had a few people ask me if I had done anything to my face. Some thought I gained weight, some thought I had injections, even a facelift. None of these are correct.
What I did start doing a year ago is Face Yoga. I love practicing yoga, why not try it on my face?

Here’s my daily routine;

-Hundred cold water splashes each morning
-Fifteen minutes of face yoga daily
-Face massage twice a week
-Face mask with yeast(plumps the skin) twice a week
-Under-eye mask using the egg membrane twice a week(reduces the puffiness)


I don’t spend any money on face masks, everything I use is made with what I have in my home. You know your skin, so if the cold water splashes may be damaging, try an ice roller or an ice cube or cold compress but do it consistently to see results.
I watched tons of YouTube videos and compiled a series of poses that I like and have been following the same routine since January 2020. I don’t know what would happen if I was to stop and I’m not about to find out either.

Practicing Face Yoga alone may not be as effective if I didn’t watch what I eat. I’ve always been a picky eater. Luckily, I don’t like sweets, soda, fried food so eliminating these from my diet wasn’t a big deal for me. What I do LOVE are bread and cheese. I can literally live on cheese, bread, and crunchy veggies. I have to just talk myself into not consuming a large amount on a daily basis.
                                           
So, what does this have to do with real estate? Discipline! Whether it be a mail-out, cold call, contacting FSBO’s, door knocking, calling expireds, in order to see results, we must be consistent. With consistency, there’s no way we can not succeed.

Love the tie-in at the end! Yes, discipline and consistency are keys to success in life and business. 

I have not tried face yoga but do like to experiment with natural ingredients to create face masks. One of my favs is avocado - but it takes so much discipline to not eat if off my face! 😄

Hi Andrea Bedard, I never tried an avocado mask, like you, I would be tempted to eat it.

If I had your skin and complexion I think I would recommend continuing with your daily regiment. I used to see people in our office doing Face Yoga (I hope) and I really do think it should be done at home. Nice post Beth Atalay

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS, face yoga is something I would never do in public but we're all different. Thank you for your kind words.

Hello Beth - face yoga is a new term for me.  I have bookmarked your post to remind to investigate further.

Beth Atalay - as always, I learn a lot from you! Face yoga is something I had not heard of until now. You are so resourceful and committed to health. I can understand now why it's so easy for you to always give your best to others in business because you invest time in taking care of yourself first and foremost. Good health is the beginning of all types of success. 

Thank you for sharing.

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, I never thought of it that way but you're absolutely right, how we care for our body is a reflection of how we would care for others.

Hmm, this is the first that I am hearing of face yoga.  I tried regular yoga once and it wasn't too bad but we had to wear a face mask during it so I opted not to continue.  After covid passes, I might try it again.  I am not sure I will do the face yoga though.  I decided long ago that I was just going to let nature take its course and roll with the effects of aging, haha.

Hi Brian England, I practice yoga at home now, I will most likely go back to the studio once covid passes.

Hi Beth Atalay - your key take away is doing something regularly.  I admire your discipline.  I was going regularly to the gym and regret not keeping that up but the gym was closed most of the year.

Hi Grant Schneider, I used to go to the studio to practice yoga prior to covid but now I do it at home. We all had to make changes and adapt due to covid.

Thanks for sharing this Beth. I'm assuming there are videos on line with face exercises? Worth giving these a try. I'll also look online to see how to remove egg membrane. As for discipline, it's actually fun. I find discipline gives me more confidence.

Good morning Beth. While I am consistent on many things, the one thing I can say I consistently avoid is face yoga. Maybe I should adapt to your line of thinking. Enjoy your day.

Hi Wayne Martin, if you try it, please let me know how you like it.

I have to admit, I never heard of face yoga, or using yeast (great idea) to plump skin. 

Thank you for sharing.

Well Kat Palmiotti, I'm glad you heard about them on my blog post.  Let me know if you give them a try.

I miss my live hot yoga classes, it's been a year now. I never knew about face yoga, but I can see how much time you spend on it and alas, my face will have to glow naturally without help. 😂 I was exhausted just reading your routine.

Thank you for the chuckle Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets, I miss my Hot Yoga classes too,  I still practice yoga at home and put two heaters in a room to fool myself..ha..ha

Hi Rocky Dickerson, thank you so much for the compliment. Oh my goodness, I don't know if I could do it in front of others.

Hi Beth:

That is quite a routine you follow - good for you! This is the first time I've heard of face yoga.

You are so right about being consistent...important in so many things we do, including real estate.

I've never heard of face yoga but I will certainly check it out online. Any particular sources that you recommend?

Feb 28, 2021 01:54 PM
Beth Atalay

Hi Sharon Tara, I watched a ton of videos on youtube and came up with my own routine. Most of the videos are mostly talk which I don't enjoy. There's a site called FaceYogaMethod, they try to sell a program which I didn't buy but I did start watching her videos at the beginning.

Hi Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty, I've heard of those yoga practices as well but never tried them. Face Yoga does work.

Face yoga, it could work....just sayin. For me the hot barber towel is the best solution. 😎
