But, wait, I'm not Korean. Newly discovered muscle, so not much information yet. Mm mm mm
Hi everyone. Today I'm going to talk about malaris muscle. Have you heard of it? I've never heard of it until I heard from Dr. Thouria. Thank you so much for your ongoing, continuous education really appreciate it. Anyway, malaris muscle is not in my textbook because it's relatively newly, newly discovered. Why people didn't know much about it? Because it was kind of hidden. It's like layer, there's a layer. And then it was hidden and it does not exist much in caucasian face. It does more prominent, more bigger presence in Asian face and African American face. How interesting is that? In the article that I was reading says Korean population is known to have the most prominent cheekbones of all the Asian populations. And this Malaris muscle is the purpose of this muscle is to lift up your cheekbone. No wonder Kpop stars are so good look good looking. I'm going to put the link of the study in description box below. So if you're interested in, please check it out. But, wait I'm not Korean. I'm Japanese.
And then you might think you're not, you, you might not be Asian. You might not be African American what I'm gonna do? It's okay. There's always solution. Um, I mean, this is newly developed new not developed, newly discovered muscle. So not much information yet. Of course, I'm gonna learn more. But as of now, I think our, one of that exercise is useful to, to wake up the Malaris muscle. Malaris muscle is like around here. So there's big orbicularis oculi muscle, which starts sagging and the sleeping muscle of the zygomaticus minor, major levator labii superioris those sleeping and everything is down and in between those there's a secret muscle malaris muscle. It's underneath this muscle that's why it was hidden. So let's do malaris muscle squat exercise, AKA this one cat eye, by the way, if you haven't got this paper yet, please do so because it's free, available, free for free download on our website kokofaceyoga.com.
So let's do it. Wash your face. I mean no face, wash your hands first, then put your fingers on this. So imagine that malaris muscle is like around here, right? So imagine that you cannot see it unless you cut the fresh you dead. And then somebody do, not to me unless you do that. You cannot see it. But anyway, you just imagine some, I believe it's around here. So we are trying to lift up this muscle. Even if you don't have much, we gonna try to develop or keep it so that it doesn't go away. So one finger here. The other one is here, here, and then try to lift up one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. We gonna do this. And then with the finger on purpose I'm gonna, you try to move this muscle up, up up 10 times.
But because this is so tiny muscle, it's very, very difficult to do so, you gonna move your finger. Mm mm mm mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm. mm. But I'm not just really doing this. I'm not just doing it. I'm not just moving the skin. You try to move this muscle, with this movement. The purpose of this first movement is to remember the movement. But even though your fingers are moving, you try to lift up with your muscle power. Let's do it one more again with the movement of the fingers, but still try to move here. Lift up, mm mm mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm. And this time you do it with, by yourself, without the finger support, but you put the finger so that you feel the movement.
Do you feel it? A little bit. You should have feel a little bit of movement. It's very, very tiny. So it's hard to feel it, but that's why you put your finger here. So of course let's do this, this side. So two steps. First one is with your finger and let's do the other side. But two steps. One is one, two, three, four, five. You move it with the finger. Finger moves the skin to, to remember the muscle movement, but used to try to lift up. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Okay. And then let's do without finger, without finger movement, but fingers on it. Do you feel it?
It's hard for you to see this because very very micro-movement. And if you are in front of me in person pre-COVID, I would ask my client hand on and then let my client to feel the movement. And that would have been easier, but we have to adapt our style to COVID, COVID um, time right? So, I trust you to do this. Just the point is two steps. One is one, two, three, move it on purpose. But at the same time, try to move, lift up this malaris muscle up, up, up in the next one is finger on it but don't move the fingers, lift up, try to lift up the malaris muscle by yourself with your muscle power. When I was a kid, my nickname was Fox because my eyes are very, very sharp and very up upward. And I did not like it at that time, but now I miss it because yeah, I had a more, probably stronger malaris muscle at that time.
And with age, those things deteriorates, and then I become more saggy, right? We don't want that. And so this is great for lifting up your cheekbone. Like the article says like a K-pop stars and also great for lifting up your, I think it's called canthal tilt yeah, cat eye cause I been teaching to private client and some people want to have a really high, like a K-pop star like this high, what's the word foxy eyes? So if you're interested in that and if you want to keep good high cheek bones, like it Kpop-Kpop stars, let's try this together with me. But because the muscle is very, very tiny this is not easy fix. Consistency on practice on a regular basis that's a key for success. More exercises.
