What can face exercises really do for your face?
Plenty… provided you do the right facial exercises consistently.
For women, our facial appearance changes noticeably in our 30s and 40s. The skin loses its suppleness, the high cheekbones is less defined, and the apple of the cheek (oops where did it go?).
If you are observant, you would notice that the first signs of aging often show up in the face and neck area? Fine lines appear on the face and “rings” around the neck.
The cheeks slide down. Face feels a little flabby. The facial contour is fuller. You see jowls. And for some, a double chin.
Most of us take good care of our skin. We have a daily regime to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and provide sun protection.
But what about the facial muscles? We hardly pay any attention to these working muscles.
You see, in order to maintain a youthful looking face, you require a combination of healthy skin and toned facial muscles.
If one or the other is not in good shape, you might end up looking older or haggard.
Here’s where face exercises come in.
Take a look at these benefits and you’ll know why more women are doing facial exercises to stay beautiful.
Your skin is revitalized. This is the first thing you would notice when you begin your face exercises. The blood circulation to the face improves during a facial exercise compared to when the facial muscles are at rest.
This promotes the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the facial tissues and aids skin cell renewal. Face exercises also stimulate lymph drainage which helps facial tissue detox.
With facial exercises, your skin looks healthier with a radiant glow.
Tone And Lift Facial Muscles
The face and neck area has 57 muscles. Facial muscles are small compared to other muscles in the body. But you can still exercise the face muscles to get them back in shape.
Toned muscles are firm to the touch and give a up lifting appearance. Face muscles that have not been exercised enough tend to be flaccid and sags.
With facial exercise the muscles and skin lift, tone and tighten restoring the face. The sagging face syndrome and wrinkles becomes less apparent.
Lose Face Fat
Are you trying to get a “slimmer” face?
One misconception is that you have to lose overall body weight to lose face fat.
Not true. Especially for individuals who have a healthy body weight or are already slender.
There are some amongst us who workout, have a toned shapely body, but still have a chubby looking face.
It is possible to make a puffy round face look slimmer through face exercises and the proper nutritional plan.
This approach also works if you are trying to get rid of a double chin, chubby cheeks or jowls.
You would want to go for toning, strengthening and sculpting exercises that target your facial problem zones to attain a more desirable facial contour.
Thus, to have a beautiful face, you want to take good care of both your skin and the facial muscles.
If you want to improve how you look, you might want to start by doing some facial toning exercises.
In fact, I find that you get to look better and better if you do the right face exercises consistently.
