We came to discover Facial Yoga a couple of years ago, when we started taking a real interest in our beauty routines. As sisters, both in our mid-thirties, we began to notice that the stress of work, children and general age-related factors were beginning to take their toll on our faces and we started swapping ideas about products and theories on how we could maintain that healthy, youthful glow as we age.
Our research focused predominantly on non-invasive interventions that wouldn’t cost the earth, and where the effects were long-lasting and the efforts were sustainable. We were fascinated by the concept of Facial Yoga from the start; it seemed a complete no-brainer that your facial muscles need a work out in order to stay toned and plump, and that boosting the circulation in your face would inevitably lead to a more glowing complexion. In addition, it is well known that we carry so much stress in our face and neck, so it makes complete sense to take the time to relax these muscles and release the tension that, in time, leads to wrinkles and a dull complexion.
Having trained under world leading Face Yoga expert, Danielle Collins, we began practicing the routines daily and have been evangelical to friends and family about both the results, and how easily it can be fitted into your daily life. We couldn’t believe more people didn’t know about the benefits of something so low cost and easy to do, and with no pain attached!
We are now continuing our journey to learn more about all the natural ways we can improve the health of our faces. We created Luminous because we want to share our findings and ideas with other like-minded people who want to look as healthy and happy as they can throughout their life, but without an enormous price tag or losing the character that makes our faces unique to each of us.
We hope you enjoy the journey with us to a healthier, happier face!
