The 5-Minute Facial Workout: 30 Exercises for a Naturally Beautiful Face
There comes a time in our lives when we need to pay a little extra attention to our face. I am at that time in my life where I want to do as much as I can to not get wrinkles and keep my face beautiful. We work so hard to stretch and tone our bodies to look fit. Why can’t we do the same for our face?
Did you know that there are 50 muscles that make up the structure of your face? According to the new book The 5-Minute Facial Workout: 30 Exercises for a Naturally Beautiful Face, putting those muscles to work with some facial exercises can drastically improve your appearance. That reason alone is what made me want to give this book a try. The pictures in this book are really helpful with how to do the exercises and they have images that also show you exactly which are of the face you will be working out.
The exercises and explanations of how to perform them are easy and clear to understand. I am currently doing the exercises about three times per day for three weeks now. By the second week I could actually feel my facial muscles tightening up. The book itself is great size, not to small or big and bulky. The pages are heavy duty paper so you won’t ruin it easily. I am really happy with this book and recommend it. After all what have you got to lose? Besides wrinkles, that is.
About The 5-Minute Facial Workout: 30 Exercises for a Naturally Beautiful Face
How to combat the effects of aging in just 5 minutes a day.
More than 50 muscles make up the structure of the human face, and to a large degree these muscles determine facial appearance. The muscles of the face can be exercised and toned just like skeletal muscles. With this new program a marked difference in appearance will be developed and will potentially eliminate the common desire and need for invasive plastic surgery.
Too much sun, cigarette smoking, the degradation of collagen layers and poor skin create sagging facial muscles. Performing the facial gymnastics in this program on a regular basis will reverse a variety of concerns such as “empty” looking cheekbones, floppy jowls, relaxed eyelids, uncomely wrinkles and too much unwelcome elasticity. Catherine Pez prescribes a “facial gym” at home to exercise the muscles in the face with no special equipment — just some diligence and discipline.
The smile works more than twenty five muscles on the face — so smiling is an important first step. The small and important Risorius muscle is in the corner of the mouth and if well stimulated, will correct a drooping mouth. This muscle also stimulates the other mid-face muscles thereby inflating the cheeks and nothing is as fresh and young-looking as well-accentuated cheekbones.
Each exercise has clear instructions, with photographs that demonstrate the movements, so performing each exercise is easy and straightforward.
