Looking for high, sculpted and contoured cheekbones? Well, you’ve come to the right place. FaceGym offers an at-home workout using 3 really simple moves to sculpt and define your cheekbones like never before in just 5 minutes.
Before we get into the workout, let’s prep the skin with one of our FaceGym Signature Face Oils. These are brilliant for getting the right balance of glide to easily workout your facial muscles without pulling or dragging the skin.Depending on what your skin needs, choose from 1 of the 3 enzymatically activated oils made with nutrient-rich muscle blend™ to stimulate your skin’s metabolic cycle for defined cheekbones:
- FaceGym's Brightening Signature Face Oil - Think super hydrated, bright, luminous skin. Combining avocado, sweet orange, grapefruit and CoQ10, this power-packed oil is a great antioxidant to defend against free radicals that damage and prematurely age the skin.
- FaceGym's Detox Signature Face Oil - If breakouts are a concern, this cucumber oil, palamarose, bergamot and Melinoil™ helps to clear congestion, protect against pollution and balance the skin
- FaceGym's Firming Signature Face Oil - Tones up tired skin. Formulated with FaceGym’s unique blend of 6 skin-energising, bio-intelligent ingredients, this oil is a plumping powerhouse to reduce fine lines, hydrate and improve your overall complexion.
With your oil smoothed onto the skin, we begin the workout with a FaceGym fave – Cheek Whipping. Check out the Cheek Sculpt video so you can see all of the moves in action before you try it out at home.
#1 Cheek Whipping
A FaceGym favourite, whipping is a core part of any FaceGym cheek workout. Why? Because it’s incredible for toning and tightening your cheek muscles, increasing circulation and bringing oxygen to the skin. The more oxygen to the skin, the more glowy you look.
Start by taking 2 fingers and and support your skin with the opposite hand by holding your skin tight at the chin. Take your index and middle finger, and with a medium pressure and start whipping around the cheek area in an upwards direction covering your whole cheek area. Take it slow in the beginning and find your rhythm. Start with 30 seconds, work your way up to a minute on each side. Don’t get worried if you’re going a bit red, that’s a good sign. Whipping helps to stimulate blood circulation (the redness you see) to promote natural radiance and encourage your skin’s natural collagen production. Repeat on the other side.
#2 Finger Hooks
Create a hook with both index fingers. Using a medium pressure, tuck the knuckles of your hooks under your cheekbones at the side of your nose and scoop it under and along your cheekbone (Zygomatic muscle), out towards your ear. This is great to do before an evening out as it immediately defines the cheekbones, which can then be easily contoured with make-up. Take your time with this movement, ensuring the pressure remains firm, but never painful.
#3 Caterpillar Cheek Sculpt
Cradle the head with one hand and place your fingertips underneath the cheekbone (Zygomatic muscles) Using medium pressure individually walk your fingertips repeatedly under your cheek muscles with a lifting action from your jaw towards your cheeks. Do this for 30 seconds and repeat on the other side. This 5 minute workout is easily incorporated into your morning or evening skincare routine for high cheekbones.
