When you are in your 30s and even 40s, getting younger skin or tightening your skin is of major importance to us whether you accept it or not. To help us out, Mrs. India Legacy 2019's first runner up, Neha Lal told HerZindagi some cool facial yoga exercises which would help us get skin like Deepika Padukone who I believe has great skin especially when she is in her late 30s. It is like a morale booster for many of us personally. Mrs Neha Lal herself has great skin. She shared that "the first showcase of beauty is your face and that made me think why not discuss face and yoga together because yoga is the best cosmetic ever. Let us look at some simple facial yoga exercises which can, in my own experience, get you that perfectly taut, chiselled face if you do them regularly. You can easily do these at home while watching TV, cooking or you can simply include them in your daily workout.
With these exercises, you can surely delay your aging process and get that glowing, fresh, and youthful face without any of those pricey anti-aging treatments. I have been doing it for many years and I find that toning your face is just as important as the rest of your body as years go by to keep one looking and feeling young. Keep your skin well hydrated before you try any of the following exercises so that the skin breathes and continues to shine. Just remember to start with 2 sets of 10 reps each and slowly build up to 4 sets.

The essential thing is that even if you feel it’s too late to start, make a start. It’s important to begin. Who knows, it might just be the new you waiting to be unveiled.
