Are you tired of dishing out big bucks for expensive anti-aging creams and lotions, with little to no results? Or are you looking for a non-invasive anti-aging cosmetic technique that doesn’t involve Botox or costly surgery?
A recent investigation shows that simple facial exercises can knock years of your appearance in less than five months and all you need is thirty minutes a day. Does this sound too good to be true?
Signs of aging
Age affects just about every nook and cranny of our body, but it is often most visible on our face. Such as that baggy skin under our chin and a little more jowly around the neckline and how could we forget about those wrinkles that just seemed to appear over night.
The misplaced fat pads in our face are the main reason of these unpleasant signs of aging. When we were younger these fat pads were evenly distributed, leaving our skin looking soft and supple. But as we age, these fat pads begin to lose volume and gravity begins to pull them downwards on our face, causing our soft and smooth facial skin to become loose and saggy.
Wrinkles are also caused by thinner fat pads, as there isn’t enough fat between the skin and facial muscles to hold the skin in place. So the muscles begin to tug on the skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkle.
Age-related changes in our facial appearance are unavoidable but we can postpone these changes and rejuvenate our appearance without breaking the bank by costly cosmetic procedures. All you need to do are some simple facial exercises.
The recent study that was previously mentioned, took great strides into new techniques for eliminating signs of aging. The study involved middle-aged women who had to perform 30-minute daily anti-aging facial exercises for a period of 90 weeks. The results were phenomenal; on average, each of the women showed that they looked at least 3 years younger by the end of the trail.
The study took before and after pictures of the participants and the pictures were compared at the end of the program.
How does it work? It involved simple facial yoga exercises that helped to enlarge and strengthen the facial muscles, causing the face to become more supple, toned and younger looking within five weeks from performing the exercises.
These simple techniques help to also improve blood flow and circulation, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin dermis. Hence, causing the skin to look younger and tighter.
Face yoga has been directly related to improving those unsightly signs of aging such as crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles and improving overall tone and appearance.
