Facial Exercise should you do it?.

If you’ve ever looked up beauty tips online, you’ve probably come across one “weird” tip over and over again:
Bloggers, estheticians, and even doctors have touted it as the ultimate “at-home facelift.”
And the theory makes sense, doesn’t it? If you want a firm, lifted body, strength training is a proven way to get it. So wouldn’t it work for your face, too?
Here are the THREE reasons why facial yoga could actually age you faster:
1) It can cause wrinkles.
Lots of the commonly-recommended facial yoga “poses” involve lifting your eyebrows, puckering your lips, or scrunching up your face…
All moves that cause creasing and crinkling.
Do it enough, and they’ll stick (yes, your mother was right!). Fine lines… wrinkles… crepey skin… NOT worth it.
2) It can make your face “bulky.”
Yes, really. The entire idea behind facial yoga is to build muscle, giving the skin on top of the muscle a “lift”...
But for that to work, those muscles would have to get very big. So big, in fact, they’d actually show through your skin.
That could create a very chiseled, masculine look — including a stronger jaw, thicker neck, lumpy face, and even visible veins.
It’s a great look for bodybuilders, but it’s NOT what most women want to see in the mirror!
3) It can cause physical problems.
I’ve had clients get facial cramps, lose contact lenses, and even get their jaws locked up from trying to do bizarre face poses.
Now, perhaps those minor side effects would be worth it if facial yoga really worked…
But the likelihood of getting “facelift-like results” from tensing your facial muscles over and over, is very low.
So what CAN you do to get a firmer, more lifted look, in the comfort of your own home?
Three quick tips come to mind:
By giving these quick tips a try, you’ll be giving yourself a “leg up” on gravity...
But whatever you do, don’t rely on “facial gymnastics” to get a younger look. You may wind up getting the OPPOSITE!
