There are many face exercises programs available in the market today. Each program is customized differently.
There is the very basic exercise to tone and firm the face muscles to the more specialized exercises that help you to attain a more attractive well defined facial contour.
Here are tips to help you get the most out of your face exercise program.
1. Match Face Exercises To Your Needs
Start by knowing your own needs. Do you simply want to firm and tone your face? Or are you looking for exercises that come with skin care routine and anti aging? Or perhaps you are keen to lose the face fat together with your chubby cheeks and double chin.
Know what you need, then do the right type of face exercises to get results.
2. Do The Face Exercises Correctly
To get results, you want to follow authentic instructions and do the exercises correctly. Because face exercises can be simple, there is a tendency to DIY without following proper instructions.
You do not want to spend your time on exercises that don’t give you results. Do you? So, follow the proper instructions and do the exercises correctly.
3. Get To Know Your Face Muscles
Your face is made up of different face muscle groups. It is helpful to know which face muscle you are targeting in each exercise you do. Knowing where the specific muscles are located makes it easier for you to focus on working them.
And if you understand the relations between face muscle, facial expression and facial lines, you become more aware of your own undesirable habits, eg. frowning which leads to frown lines between the brows in the long run.
4. Exercise In Front Of The Mirror
For beginners, do your exercises in front of the mirror where you can see your own reflection. This prevents you from scrunching up your face in the wrong place. Observe the movements of your face muscles as you do the exercises. You can easily spot a mistake and self correct.
5. Start With Clean Face And Hands
There are some face exercises that require you to place your fingers on your face. I prefer to wash my face and hands prior to doing such face exercises. This prevents dirt or germs on my hands going onto my face, eyes or mouth.
So, there you have it. Five simple tips to help you get started with your face exercises. Look out for more useful tips in Part 2 of the article, Face Exercises – Tips To Get Optimal Results.
