Facial Exercises - A New Trend in Non-Surgical Facial Toning

There is a moment in everyone's life, when you notice for the first time, (it may be for some around your 35th birthday), wrinkles and sagginess on your face. These may appear as a result of stress-filled days, good and bad personal experiences, genetics and a host of other factors influencing your life.

At first, looking from different angles in the mirror you think, perhaps you can do something about it. Well, anti-aging creams definitely improve the texture of the skin through quality moisturizing and fight against damaging UV rays together with regular beautician visits. What about droopy cheeks, dull skin color and a baggy looking jaw-line? You try to recall all the solutions offered on TV infomercials and magazine advertisements, thinking what is the best possible answer for fighting these aging signs appearing on your face?

The explanations offered by experts are pointing to different factors causing your skin to age:

-free radicals, highly reactive molecules created by factors like smoking and UV rays that damage skin cells, specially visible around eyes and lips:

- insufficient intake of fresh fruit and vegetables that contain vitamins and minerals necessary for skin regeneration and rejuvenation (vitamins C, A and E)

-depleted collagen and weaken muscles causing skin to sag

-genetic predisposition

Now, what is available? For people who don't believe in aging gracefully, there are few options:

- Paying a visit to a reputable plastic surgeons practice. This may be a solution for those with a readily disposable income, but for the majority perhaps this would not be an option. - Botox injections, applied to small muscles underlying visible lines every three to six months, temporarily paralyzes the muscles, smoothing out the skin above - Boost collagen production with non-ablative lasers that help stimulate collagen production in the dermis

Or, FACIAL EXERCISES, a new approach that is more and more appealing to those who are looking for a natural, inexpensive and non-invasive way to improve facial appearance. Several programs have been known in the last 30 years ranging from educational books, different devices and the advocates of facial exercises agree, if you stick with them, the results will pay off. Massage and facial exercises are a maintenance regimen for stimulating muscles and keeping the skin in place.

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian science, uses massage and facial exercises as a key to delay the aging process and help prevent wrinkles.

What benefits or initial improvements would you notice or gain using this method for facial aging prevention? The improvement in color and tautness in your skin is expected between 3-4 weeks based on everyday facial workout. An overall fresher and youthful look gradually comes within 3 months. Facial exercises are painless and easy to learn, working the same way we exercise our body muscles. The benefit that is gained by exercising the facial muscles, is improving skin tone, strengthening underlying muscle structure which in turn supports our facial skin and keeps it taut and supple.

According to the Washington Post, an exciting trend is taking place where facial exercises have become popular in USA. Fitness clubs in Manhattan, Washington D.C., Pittsburg, Boston and other places across the United States are now joining in the fashion of offering facial exercise classes. These are likened to aerobic classes for the face.

Some exercises are done by using the fingers to provide the resistance. The Australian company Oris Vista Pty Ltd , has developed a new innovative product that eliminates the overstretching of facial skin by using a ball to provide the resistance. Five short, but effective exercises, combined with the Oris Vista Face Exercise Ball are all that are needed to enable our facial muscles to have a complete workout. Oris Vista Face Exercise Ball with facial exercises instructions and anti-aging aromatherapy oil blend is available to order via www.faceexerciseball.com . The website also offers FREE BEAUTY TIPS AND RECIPES FROM YOUR OWN KITCHEN.
