Before Tao Face Yoga practice
1. Can I do Tao Face yoga while wearing contact lenses?
Yes, it is safe to do it. Nevertheless if you notice any discomfort then listen to yourself.
2. Can I practice if I have a beauty procedure?
Right after your procedure no. Only when everything is healed. Exactly when I cannot tell you for sure, as we are all different. However, after everything is properly healed I would recommend you to start with exercises. It is very important for you to get in the habit of exercising your muscles instead of immobilizing them. Yet, in the end, it is totally up to you. (;
