Using a sweeping motion and minimal pressure, repel your fingers away from each other going to your temples to tighten skin.

To prevent crow's feet

To target the muscles in this area, widen your eyes as much as you can until the whites of your eyes can be seen (just act surprised, Candy Girls!). Having a mirror in front of you will help make sure you that you don’t wrinkle your brow or your forehead while doing this face yoga. You should feel your forehead muscles as well as the muscles around your eyes tense up.

Then, using your hands, gently pull the skin on your temples back to tighten and smoothen it.  

To fight hollow cheeks

To get stronger and firmer cheeks, puff air into your entire mouth to create chipmunk cheeks and hold the position for a few seconds.

Release the air through your mouth and start over. If you like, you can opt to puff air alternately in each cheek to switch up the pressure. This exercise is good for plumping and toning up your cheek muscles!

For double chin

Ever wanted to get rid of that double chin or that excess skin on your neck? Tilt your head back to raise your chin, look to the ceiling, and pucker up your lips the furthest you can go. This face yoga will tighten the skin below your neck for further toning, as well as tone your lip muscles.

Hold this position for a few seconds and return to your normal position before repeating. Repeat this move a couple more times for good measure.

For a makeshift facelift

Place your fingers on your temples and gently push the skin upwards. While doing this, extend your jaw to elongate your face, creating an “O” with your mouth as you do it.

Hold for a few seconds and then repeat. This move will tone the skin on many parts of your face, so it’s like getting a natural facelift!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
