Default Head Modeling

I decided to model a head today but I'm not sure what to do about the edge loops running from the nostril to the eye. There are 4 of them that I would love to thin out because right now I don't like how they are so close to each other.

Here's a render and wire.

Not sure why I didn't see something so obvious, but here's how I fixed it.

Nice. Very light and clean geometry.

Thanks ctbram and Jay. Took me awhile to find the topology thread you mentioned Jay but I checked it out and lots of great info in there. I especially like the image you posted that had the muscles defined. I think it might have been on page 2, very useful, thx.
