*The ‘Lion’ It may sound bizarre to start a facial with a yoga move, but this move actually tones your facial muscles while simultaneously reducing muscle tension that can hinder circulation. Sit comfortably on the floor or a chair, resting your palms on your legs. Inhale, then exhale slowly; while you do this, open your eyes and mouth as wide as possible. Very slowly, stick your tongue out and down as far as it will go (without straining), and you’ll feel the muscles around your face tighten. Now stiffen your arms and fingers. Hold this position for as long as you can, then slowly relax.
Rinse off your hair (it may take a couple of shampoos), and apply conditioner. Rinse again and towel dry. If you have to blow-dry, use warm air, not hot, and keep the dryer as far away from the hair as possible.
