What’s Your Kegel Face?

Oh boy, there is a word for it. It is the exercise for the millions of people who leak when they laugh, sneeze, cough or Zumba. It’s called the Kegel exercise. It was first described in 1948 by Arnold Kegel according to Wikipedia.

Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor and are the #1 treatment for bladder leakage. And these exercises can cause particular facial expressions: the Kegel Face.
