Combat the effects of aging in just 5 minutes a day by choosing from 30 fun and easy exercises targeted to your individual face shape.
Did you know that the structure of your face is made up of more than 50 muscles, and that their fitness, to a large degree, determines its appearance? Just as we can exercise and tone our body's muscles, we can do the same with our facial muscles. This can ultimately make a marked difference in our appearance and can potentially eliminate the need for invasive plastic surgery.
Too much sun, smoking, degradation of collagen layers and poor skin care all contribute to sagging facial muscles. Facial gymnastics, if done on a regular basis, can treat a variety of concerns, from "empty"-looking cheekbones, jowls and relaxed eyelids to wrinkles and impaired elasticity. Imagine a facial gym that uses only the muscles of your face. No special equipment or location is required -- just some diligence and perseverance.
Your smile alone works more than 25 facial muscles. So smile The small but important risorius muscle is found in the corner of your mouth: if it's well stimulated, it can correct a drooping mouth. It also stimulates the muscles mid-face, inflating your cheeks. And nothing gives a fresher and younger look than well-accentuated cheekbones. Whether your face is oval, square, round, long or diamond shaped, The 5-Minute Facial Workout presents tips and information adapted to your shape to help you maintain your features as you strengthen muscle tone. And we've added a new section that helps you to customize your exercises to match your face type.
Each page features clear instructions, with a photograph to demonstrate the movement, so the exercises are straightforward and easy to do.
