Facial Exercises for Young Complexion

If you’re looking for ways to improve your skin’s health? Well I though I’ll write this post on the benefits of doing facial exercises…hopefully it’s right up your alley! It might sound silly, but you can do your skin a lot of good simply by exercising your facial muscles! That’s right, by working out various muscles in your face, you can make a considerable difference in the way you look and feel!

If Botulinum Toxin injections and other cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers, mini-face-lift and Softlift do not appeal to you or fit your budget, when you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and attain a more youthful-looking face. You may want to perform facial exercises and administer facial massages to improve muscle tone, increase blood circulation and, most of all, look as if you’ve drank from the legendary Fountain of Youth. Does this Spark an idea?

Forehead Wrinkle Exercises

Habitually frowning or raising your eyebrows can wreak havoc on your forehead in the form of deep-set worry wrinkles. To combat these lines and prevent new ones from forming, place your index fingers and thumbs over each brow and push the skin downward toward your eyes. At the same time, lift your eyebrows and repeat at least 10 times.

Crow’s Feet Exercises

To help ease the appearance of crows feet, firmly close your eyes and raise your eyebrows. Hold this position for 3 seconds, relax to your natural resting state, then repeat 10 more times.

Chin and Neck Exercises

While standing, tilt your head back and direct your eyes toward the ceiling. Feel the stretch on you neck and chin. Pucker and stretch your lips as if you were trying to kiss the ceiling above. Hold that position for 5 seconds, then relax. Repeat the exercise at least five times. Don’t forget to apply the fantastic ReFirm neck and decollete tightening cream on after your workout.

Practising basic skincare, facial exercises, and massages can serve as a triple threat against an ageing face.

Facial Massage

Facial massages, whether done yourself or by a therapist, should not exceed 20 minutes and should be performed in a gentle fashion. Massaging the forehead and nose helps reduce the appearance of horizontal lines, while massaging the cheeks and mouth area help prevent new wrinkles and/or sagging. Don’t forget to gently massage the chin and neck to increase muscle tone and preclude sagging.

Massaging the face on a regular basis has many benefits including helping the skin look firmer and smoother. Massage Therapy 101 recommends you begin by washing your face thoroughly, and gently exfoliate the skin. Pat the skin dry, and then apply nourishing cream like Demani Skincare Recover Night Cream. For dry to very dry skin, you can apply pure their Hydrate Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser, which has a mix of few HA’s to keep skin soft.
