Exercise your face? Well think about it, your face is comprised of 20 muscles. Ask yourself, what’s the difference between working out the muscles in your legs, chest, or abs and your face? Facial muscles are the same as any other muscle in your body, and require the same type of stimulation to stay strong and of normal size. If they are not used they will become weak and unable to support the skin and adipose tissue that lies above them, promoting sagging and wrinkles.
Intent.com suggests the following to keep your face looking young:
∗ Raise your eyebrows as high as you can and hold them for five seconds.
∗ Open your mouth as wide as possible and stick your tongue out as far as you can and hold for a few seconds.
∗ Using your three center fingers, press down on your cheeks and smile as hard as you can to raise your cheek muscles against your fingers.
∗ Move your nose as much as you can from side to side.
∗ Lift your eyebrows as high as you can, open your eyes as wide as possible and frown at the same time.
∗ Pucker your lips out as far as possible into the shape of an “O.” Then change your expression into a wide smile. Repeat several times.
∗ Sit in a comfortable chair and look up at the ceiling. Pucker your lips and stick your tongue out as far as possible to exercise your neck muscles.
