Corinna Tolan is a beauty expert with over two decades of skincare experience. The face yoga expert described the right gestures to have radiant and younger skin.
Corinna spoke with Express.co.uk about the best facial yoga moves to turn back the clock when it comes to your face and neck.
She is the owner of Monica Tolan The Skin Experts, Dublin, which has been voted Salon of the Year for 11 consecutive years and Salon of Excellence for the whole of the UK and Ireland.
The expert said: “As you age, the skin becomes sluggish. Blood tends to retract and concentrate on vital organs.
“When you massage the skin, you stimulate circulation, filling the skin with essential nutrients.
“It will improve intercellular communication and collagen synthesis.”

So what movement can help boost skin’s youthful appearance?
Corinna told readers: “I love working with cupping, Gua Sha and massage tools.
“Work up and move to the lymph nodes for best results.”
Facial cupping cups are small, flexible suction cups used to create suction on the skin, bring blood into the skin and rejuvenate it.
Some practitioners have claimed that the extra facial cupping contributes to a more youthful appearance.
Gua Sha tools, on the other hand, are flat tools with various curved edges made from semi-precious stones.
They are pressed against the face and used to massage the skin.
Gua Sha is actually a traditional Chinese healing method for the skin. It has been used for chronic pain, but many also use it in their skin care.
How often should you do facial yoga or an anti-aging massage?
Corinna simply told readers, “As often as you like it and feel good about it.”
Corinna suggested a number of other important anti-aging tips and tricks that she swears by.
She told readers, “Inflammation and stress are major contributors to aging.
“I suggest you include more omega 3s in your diet as they have anti-inflammatory properties.
“Also invest in a good probiotic because inflammation and stress can cause the gut to massively affect the skin.”
