These few exercises if they are done correctly and every day will greatly improve the look and expressiveness of your face. Since I’m not selling a facial exercise program (or anything), I don’t have to make promotional claims like – a few minutes a day and you’ll see amazing positive changes in your face in just a few weeks. Drivel like this is confusing because in reality facial muscles and the skin covering them do not respond to easy short-term solutions.
But these exercises are not for men and women whose idea of self-improvement is to pop a multivitamin pill or to inject Botox into the muscles of the forehead. The facial exercise program that I advocate will require some dedication, some persistence and, I’m almost reluctant to say it, some work. You’ll get results from the program though. You’ll like what you see in the mirror after even several months.
After doing these facial exercises you will feel all the muscles you have used. The muscles around your mouth and
cheeks are vitally important, as lips and cheeks can line and wrinkle easily if not looked after properly.
A lined mouth, surrounded by wrinkles, lines and furrows running from the nose is not a pretty sight, and ages the
The same goes for slack cheeks with no muscle tone and covered with furrows, lines and wrinkles – truly not a pretty
Lips: Lips 1: Sit upright facing forward and purse your lips together. Lift your pursed lips towards your nose and keep there for 5
counts, relax and repeat 5 times.
Lips 2 :Pucker your lips slightly and when in this puckered position try with your mouth muscles to bring the corners of your
mouth together as close as possible. Keep lips in this position for 5 counts, relax and repeat 5 times.
Lips 3:Sit upright facing forward and keep your lips closed and teeth together. Smile as broadly as possible, without
opening your lips, keep there for 5 counts and when relaxing start puckering your lips in a pointed kiss. Keep there
for 5 counts and relax – repeat 10 times.
Lips 4:Move your lips into a puckered kiss and while relaxing the kiss keep your lips closed and curl your lips into your
mouth across your teeth. Hold this position for a count of 10 and repeat 5 times.
Lips 5:Sit relaxed with your lips hardly open and pucker your lips outwards. While your lips are in the outward position,
move your puckered top lip towards your nose. Hold in this position for 10 counts and repeat 5 times.
Our poor cheeks always seem to get a raw deal – they are forever ignored and not much time is spent on them. Hanging skin forming that hang-dog look around your cheeks can be most aging, and so herewith some facial exercises to lift and firm the cheeks as well as to assist with that anti-aging and ageless look.
Cheeks 1: Sit upright facing forward with lips closed but relaxed. Pucker and pout your lips using the muscles in your cheeks. Keep puckered for a count of 10, relax and repeat 10 times.
Cheeks 2: Have a relaxed smile with your lips closed and then suck in your cheeks towards and on to your teeth. Hold this for
10 counts, relax and repeat 10 times.
Cheeks 3: Look in a mirror while doing this exercise. Pout your top lip, turning the corners of your lips upwards and move your cheek muscles towards your eyes. You should at this stage try to get your top lip touching your nose. Keep in this position for 10 counts, relax and repeat 5 times.
Cheeks 4: Look in a mirror while doing this exercise. Smile as widely as possible – while keeping your lips closed and your mouth corners turned up. Try to make your mouth corners touch your ears. Next wrinkle your nose and see your cheek muscles move upwards and feel these muscles work. Keep for 5 counts, relax and repeat 10 times.
Cheeks 5: Keep your teeth and lips closed and blow air under your top lip and keep it there for 10 counts, then move it to your left cheek, hold for 10, to your lower lip, hold for 10 and then to your right cheek while holding it for a count of 10. Repeat 5 times.
Neck and Throat facial exercises
Women (and men) spend literally thousands of dollars per year on skin care and cosmetics, yet sometimes fail to
look after the chin, throat and neck area.There is nothing nice or pretty about a crepey looking neck or throat with loose skin hanging around, and fold upon fold of tired looking skin. These exercises will help relieve and prevent a double chin, loose skin on the neck and throat area and will also assist in toning these muscles. Some people might think that a double chin is simply excess weight manifesting itself – but surprise, surprise – it also is the manifestation of loose skin and terrible muscle tone. A great amount of people struggle with a double chin, but if they only did these exercises regularly they would see the results of a disappearing double chin in a short period of time.
Exercise 1:A great exercise is to sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling while keeping your lips closed and then
start a chewing movement. You will feel the muscles working in your neck and throat area – and will be truly amazed
at the results. Repeat 20 times.
Exercise 2: Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Start puckering your
lips together in a kiss and stretch the kiss, as if you were trying to kiss the ceiling. Keep your lips puckered for 10 counts, then relax, bring your head back to its normal position and repeat 5 times.
Exercise 3:Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Open your lips and stick your tongue out as if you were trying to touch your chin with the tip of your tongue. Keep your tongue out in this position for 10 counts, and then return your tongue and head to its normal position.
FOREHEAD FACIAL EXERCISES
The skin around the eye, is the thinnest and most fragile skin found on the body, and wrinkles in this area cause great aging of the face as such, as the eyes are the central point where most people focus when talking to you. Facial exercises can be of great benefit.Bags under the eyes also do great disservice to your looks and create an un-cared for look, and creates the impression of a person not too worried about appearance
No harm wasting 45 seconds a day doing this when you stand a chance to gain a smaller face and the plus point is that it can be done it anytime/anywhere – even while surfing on SGClub.
