There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, but time has a way of not making it easy. As the years go by, the muscles in your face start to lose their elasticity.
It’s this lack of resilience that leads to the formation of wrinkles. The muscles in the throat and neck are usually the first to succumb, and that can lead to a flabby, wrinkly neck.
Luckily, there are facial exercises that you can do to delay the onset of this problem, or start to reverse it if it’s already an issue.
Every facial expression you make adds to the adverse effect on your facial appearance.
The repetition of smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions can speed up the creation of wrinkles and other aging factors.
The good news is that there is a natural method to help combat this aging process.
Face Exercises are free alternative to other medical procedures to help strengthen the muscles underneath our skin in our face.
They help fight the natural signs of aging that can occur from years of facial expressions and using our face muscles.
It’s been proven that rejuvenation of the face through friction and massage are the best ways to look young and feel young.
Realize that the main reason your facial muscles sag is a lack of muscular exercise.
Like any other muscle in the body, constant exercise can make these facial muscles expand and develop, effectively removing the sagging look.
Wrinkled skin, on the other hand, has been proven to be made elastic again through regular application of friction.
Giving your face the desired look is very simple and it involves no cost. It’s for free. Only you need to add an extra task in your daily routine and that too for only 15 to 20 minutes and the task is very simple exercise
Facial exercises are a much better alternative than risky plastic surgery procedures which come with a whole host of potential side effects.
Exercises are natural, effective, and free. Just be sure to check with your doctor before starting the exercises, in case there are any underlying health concerns.
Also, be sure to not overdo it. These exercises will work, but you don’t want to risk hurting yourself when you do them.
Regular face exercises help strengthen the damaged face muscles after years of use. While it’s not easy to fathom years of smiling, frowning, and wrinkling our brow line does a toll on those muscles.
Over the years these muscles begin to weaken and out face begin to wrinkle due to the elongated weakening muscles.
So, it makes sense that strengthening these muscles can reverse these negative effects. We tend to the rest of our body at the gym so why not keep our face in shape.
Unfortunately it’s more or less impossible to go through life with no expression on our faces. We’d be pretty boring company, however, an all-star poker player possibly.
By regularly performing face exercises we can recapture our youthful image we had when we were younger, without going through any painful injections or surgeries.
In a nutshell what happens under the skin is this. As the muscles weaken and begin to elongate our skin will begin to sag.
Of course sagged skin on the outside is what causes those aging effects to occur.
By working the right muscles with face exercises you are able to stimulate blood flow to those muscles, and also increase the amount of oxygen that the skin receives.
By receiving more blood and oxygen the skin can begin to produce more health skin cells, helping to reverse the aging effects.
Since there is no equipment required face exercise can be done anywhere any time. Work them into your daily routine, or do some when you have a private spare moment.
It’s only a few minutes a day and the results you’ll experience are well worth it. Isn’t an improved appearance worth that amount of time?
What the facial exercise does?
Facial exercise protects facial muscles from slacking. Even if you are very good looking and young, as time passes your facial muscles will become loose, slack and creepy.
So, if you are young and smart and beautiful, doing facial exercise will prevent you from the slackness of face muscles when you grow old and if you are an old aged person then this will minimize the plasticity of you face muscles.
Facial exercise will make your face skin wrinkle free and shiny. This will tone your facial skin and give you a youthful look. At the same time after performing the exercise, you will feel calm and relaxed.
How to do facial exercise?

How was applying friction on the skin done?
With the help of some lotion to minimize irritation (not too much lotion, though, as there will be no more friction), work on the areas that would normally leads to sagging such as the cheeks, the throat, the chin, the forehead and around the eyes.
Start as though you are polishing a pair of shoes. With a slight, circular friction on the surface areas, which should gradually increase in pressure.
But not too vigorous that you will end up abrading and irritating your face. This process will progressively restore the elasticity of your skin and smoothen out the wrinkles.

This process will build up the muscles and fill those “hollows”, those sunken areas around the eyes and the cheeks.
Do this also on the chin and throat. Make sure you apply an equal amount of pressure to the entire face so that the buildup of muscles will be uniform.
Do these exercises a few minutes daily–even while you are watching the TV– and you will soon see the “miracle” of a younger looking you.
The process of looking older does not have to be as fast as it is now.
With the right determination, and knowing the proper techniques, you can almost stop the advance of the “aged” look, no matter that your actual age is unstoppably moving ahead.
It’s been proven possible and there’s no reason you can’t achieve the same.
