Do you look older than you feel? Wrinkles, loose skin on the neck (turkey neck), and sagging jowls are some of the most hated effects of aging. They can give the appearance of being old and tired, and can greatly impact the way we feel about ourselves. Fortunately, there is a solution. Facial exercise, as well as facial yoga are both natural cost-effective ways to achieve a non-surgical face lift, without the pain of surgery, and without breaking the bank.
Face Lift Through Exercise – Facial exercise benefits the entire face, as well as the neck. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lifts sagging jowls, minimizes puffy eyes and dark circles, reduces a double chin, lifts droopy eyelids, eliminates crow’s feet, increases collagen and elastin production, stimulates blood circulation, oxygenates the skin cells, and hydrates the skin. With consistent practice you will see results in just 3-4 weeks.
Here are a Few Facial Exercises to Get You Started:
Eyebrow Lift – Place the 3 middle fingers of both hands underneath your eyebrows with your palms against your face. Close your eyes and lift your eyebrows up with your finger tips as high as you can without pulling to hard. Next, push brows outwards towards the temples. Now with the muscles of your forehead, push down towards your finger tips and count to 5, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes** – Using the 3 middle fingers of both hands, press your fingers underneath your eyes on your lower eye sockets, just above your cheek bones. With your eyes open, pull down slightly with your fingertips, trying to close your eyes. Hold for a count of 5, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
Furrow (Frown Lines) – Deliberately scrunch the lines in between your brows, then resist by placing your index fingers above the center of your eyebrows and pulling outwards. Hold for 5 seconds, then relax. Repeat 5 times.
