Sagging faces are no laughing matter. If you happen to witness your jaw line being quietly invaded by your upper cheeks, you are not alone. The good news is that there is hope for your jaw line, your sagging cheeks and even the dreaded wattle because facial exercise can easily change the shape and contour of those droopy features that can make you appear older than your years.
Facial features atrophy just like other parts of the body. If you’re over 40 you are certainly seeing a thickening waist line if you don’t exercise, expanding hips and thighs and a wiggly under arm as muscles elongate and skin sags.
It’s hard to feel attractive when you’re seeing signs of aging especially when the aging is in your face. Our faces are our brand. People recognize us by our facial appearance and if your face shows despair, stress, lines, sags and wrinkles, you may not be presenting your best face scenario.
Just how and why does aging affect the face? An aging face develops when the muscles that connect into the hairline begin to atrophy or loosen. Then those tiny muscles slide downward into other muscles and muscles groups. The pooling of one muscle into another can create bags, noticeable sagging and even wrinkles. Atrophy is another word for dis-use or weakening.
Without exercise your face will continue to fail you. You will indeed look older and feel less confident in your appearance if you do not stop the downward slide of your facial muscles.
Using exercise is easy and simple to master and once you learn the techniques, you will always know how to maintain a youthful face without resorting to costly invasive procedures that put your good health at risk. Most faithful users of facial exercise proclaim that their faces look ten, fifteen, even twenty years younger than their peers.
Learning an exercise regimen means that you probably can’t be lured into believing that your only remedy for facial aging is at the tip of a syringe or a scalpel. Repeated injecting and numerous surgeries won’t equate to a younger face; rather, the over-use of these modalities can create a freakish appearance. Plumping and paralyzing injections are toxic substances – exercise is natural.
More good news surrounding facial exercise is that if you have opted for injections or surgery in the past, you probably will give them up entirely when you rely on exercise techniques to keep a soft, mushy forehead taut; the nose to mouth labial folds will begin to flatten and reposition in just days. You will notice that every portion of your face and neck can be exercised with great success and the program only takes a few minutes a day to complete.
Day by day you will see lifting, tightening and toning of your facial features. You will feel the lifting and soon it will be apparent to everyone that something new is occurring with your face.
There are special anchoring techniques that create the lifting. The muscles in the face attach to bone on one end and the other end attaches to either another muscle or muscle group and the end of a facial muscle can also attach to the skin. The anchoring techniques are performed wearing exercise gloves and they are easy to master. Anchoring is necessary in order to create the needed tightening of the muscles so the affected areas can respond to the isometric contractions.
The exercise movements work to refine, tone, lift, enhance and smooth the areas that age you. Just as exercise works your thighs, buttocks, arms and torso, facial exercise goes to work to stop atrophy of your forehead, eye lids, jowls, pouches, cheeks, neck and more. The simple exercises target and strengthen the underlying muscles of your face. It just makes sense. By firming and lifting these muscles, the youthful contours of your face return and you skin looks younger, healthier and fresher.
You can fix your face, look years younger without costly and painful invasive procedures and proudly wear a youthful, more vibrant appearance. Remember, exercise changes everything and you will see and feel the results almost immediately.
