With all of this extra time on our hands thanks to quarantine, it can be difficult to know how to fill our days. We might find ourselves taking multiple showers or baths just to pass the time. However, even with the extra time we’re taking to pamper ourselves, are we taking time to focus on our face? Thanks to Face Gym, the ultimate facial workout studio, you can now recreate their fabulous facial routines at home, either with tools or without.

I visited Face Gym last summer while I was in New York. For weeks, I had seen my favorite bloggers and celebrities posting about this incredible new SoHo arrival, and as a skincare fanatic, I knew I had to check it out.

It was truly incredible. Face Gym lives up to its slogan: “it’s not a facial, it’s a workout.” For 45 minutes, I sat back while my aesthetician took my face through warm-up exercises, cardio, strengthening, and cool-down, all designed to boost collagen and reduce the effects of aging. It was truly a work out for my face.

And the end result? Tight, lifted, and glowingly beautiful skin–instantly.

Now, in quarantine, Face Gym is hosting live masterclasses on its Instagram page (@facegym), each one working out a different part of the face. Not only that, but they are selling kits with the tools they use during actual workouts, and can even book PT, or personal training sessions for you and your friends while you social distance.

Thanks to their live workouts, my skin has never looked more lifted. Every night, I practice the routines from the masterclass, either with my tools or without to achieve the ultimate summer glow.
