Facial yoga, or Foga, is something Meghan Markle swears by and given her swoon-worthy jawline, we are sold. Hailed as a non-invasive alternative to Botox surgery, a little bit of clowning and frowning can keep both the wrinkles and needles away from your face. But how exactly do these anti-ageing facial exercises help?

Supposedly, they target the hypodermis or the lower layer of the skin, the dermis or the middle layer and the epidermis or the upper layer. By working all these layers correctly it increases the blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and more nourishment to reach the cells of the skin.

What it results in is a clear, healthy complexion with a beautiful glow which has fewer toxins and has a better ability to absorb moisture. Foga is also designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the middle layer of the skin, leaving one with a smoother and tighter-looking skin.

Here are five face exercises you can work on – and the good part is – you can do it just anywhere and drop years from your face.
