Do you know that facial exercises can take years off your face? You can have a wrinkle free face without having to pay for expensive cosmetic surgery. Just like the rest of your body, your face also needs exercise to prevent loss of tone, drooping jowls and cheeks, crow’s feet and wrinkles.
With age, skin cells do not divide as fast as they should. The inner skin becomes thin and the fat cells beneath it begin to atrophy. Along with this, the network of collagen and elastin fibers starts to loosen. When this happens, the skin loses elasticity and wrinkles start appearing.
In the words of a notable plastic surgeon, an aging face can be likened to melting wax. It starts gradually and then, bit by bit, it deflates, droops and looks sad and tired. While many people are genetically predisposed to severe wrinkling, it can be hastened by sun exposure and smoking.
Many people incorrectly think that facial exercises cause wrinkles. This cannot be true if you consider that weight-training firms and tightens skin on other parts of the body. The same principle applies to the face.
There have been numerous studies that support this theory. One was conducted by the founder of a highly reputable physical therapy center. The study produced some concrete evidence. A group of people did regular facial exercises for an eight week period. Every person showed an incredible 250 percent improvement in muscle strength and a 35 percent increase in elasticity.
This is proof that the face can be tightened with exercise. Because exercise tones muscles, the sagging skin is reduced and wrinkles diminish. In the process, other problems like puffy eyes and drooping jowls are also significantly decreased. After the study referred to above was complete, every person looked more youthful.
Facial exercises apply contractions and resistance to specific facial muscles in the same way that bodybuilding does, except they target the face and neck. When facial muscle is strong, the face takes on a whole new appearance. Furthermore, muscle contractions increase blood flow by as much as 10 times. This supplies the skin with extra nutrients and oxygen.
The skin texture also becomes smoother, firmer and more elastic. An increase in the production of elastin and collagen promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells. There are two types of facial exercises – isometric and resistance. To learn how to do these exercises, simply search the internet for ‘exercises for a wrinkle free face’.
