Want to avoid the high cost of a face lift? Looking for home remedies for face wrinkles? Consider simple facial exercises. they are a great alternative to a face lift and you wont look artificial like a plastic surgery face lift.
Facial exercises are the best way to get a face lift without surgery. these types of exercises can help tighten and tone the underlying muscles which lift the skin and reduce and fills out wrinkles. it can also help lift droopy cheeks and jowls. Why take a chance on bad face lifts when you can do simple facial exercises and get a face lift without surgery, risks, or the high cost.
The concept of facial exercises is not new, but many people are nervous to massage or rub the skin on their face for fear of creating more wrinkles. however, its the lack of massaging (stimulating the skin) and weak or poor muscle tone that causes our skin to age.
As skin ages, it becomes less resilient and loses vitality causing it to become thin and wrinkled. in addition, muscles start sag, cheeks deflate and jowls droop, giving our face a long tired look. one plastic surgeon compared an aging face to melting wax..slowly drooping downward with age.
There have been several studies published on the benefits of face exercises. Results from the Eureka Physical Therapy Center found that in short eight weeks, there was a 250% increase in muscle strength and a 35% increase in skin elasticity. Other studies show that face exercises produce firmer skin with more elasticity and an increase in collagen production.
How do these exercises work? Exercising the face is similar to exercising the body or weight training. by applying contraction or resistance, combined with a light massage, to the muscles of the face and neck, you increase muscle size which gives the face a nice full, lifted look…like a mini face lift. in addition, all that massaging stimulates blood flow bringing oxygen to the skin.
Here is a simple exercise for alleviating eye wrinkles:
1. Place you thumb from each hand at the outer corner of each eye. Thumbs should be facing downward toward your cheeks. the rest of your fingers can rest on the side of your head.
2. Shut your eyes and squeeze them tightly. then slide your thumbs over tightly contracted muscles.moving from the corners of the eyes out towards your temples. the sliding/gliding motion over a contracted muscle is what makes this exercise so effective and doesn’t not stretch out or damage the skin.
3. Repeat 10 times and do it at least 5 days a week.
People have reported great results including better skin tone and reduced eye puffiness in just a few days. Which is why some call it the 3 day face lift or an alternative to a face lift.
