Vitamin C, retinol, AHAs, BHAs – if you’re up to speed with the ins and outs of skincare, you’re probably already familiar with these ingredients. Slathering on layers upon layers of serums and essences is probably normal for you. But beauty isn’t skin deep, and we mean that literally. How often have you paid attention to your facial muscles, and how are they faring? Surprisingly, the state of our facial muscles can have a huge impact on our appearances.

Like the muscles on other parts of the body, facial muscles can be prone to stiffness. When that happens, facial tension can lead to headaches, dizziness, anxiety, jaw pain and frown lines, among other things. Stiff facial muscles also lend itself to poor circulation and subpar lymphatic drainage, which may eventually lead to a dull, puffy and haggard appearance.
