She took to TikTok posting under the handle @skincaresolution786 to explain how to do face yoga.
She said: “Face yoga and massage, if you’re over 40 do this every day.
“Take some face oil into your hands and start massaging your forehead in an upward direction about 20 times.”
She put two of her fingers together and swept them upward on her forehead with light pressure as she demonstrated.

She continued: “Once you’ve done this take your finger pads and do a tapping circular motion around your eyes for six circles.”
The ageless woman then placed her hand on the side of her face with her fingers pointing upward and her thumb touching her jaw.
She described the area of skin from the lips to the ear as zone one and the skin under the eye as zone two.
She used two fingers on her opposite hand to tap the skin in a sweeping upward motion.
