Performing facial weight training, half an hour a day for twenty weeks, rejuvenates the faces of women. This is the first time that a scientific study validates the beneficial effects of facial bodybuilding on the appearance of the face.
Look younger without going through cosmetic surgery or potentially toxic anti-aging treatments? This is possible by practicing facial exercises.

Then they continued for eight weeks, 30 minutes of exercise every day, and then for the other 12 weeks every other day. They practiced 32 different movements of the "Facial Yoga" series.
