June 18, 2009
Hello dear friends!

Welcome to your Week #2 second step of our free Natural Beauty Makeover program.

Week #2 - Natural Face Lift

This weeks lesson will show you how to create a natural face lift which can dramatically improve your appearance.

What is a natural, non-surgical face lift and how does this help your sensitive skin to be more beautiful?

  • A natural facelift uses carefully chosen facial exercises to tone and firm the facial muscles.

  • Facial exercise increase circulation to your face and skin, which improves the complexion naturally and strengthens and firms the facial muscles.

  • Facial exercise begins to show results within a few weeks, and if done regularly can erase wrinkles and sagging skin.

First Let's Review

How are you doing since last weeks Cleansing lesson? If you'd like to see it again it's here at Natural Beauty Cleansing.

How is your body feeling since you started drinking more water and eating extra fruits and veggies?

Do you notice any changes to how you feel about yourself?

Natural beauty isn't a quick overnight fix, but rather a process. It's also not easy, because we are creating changes in our daily habits. That's why I've spaced out these lessons to give you some time to put into practice the suggestions.

How was it for you to What did you learn about the products you are using?

If at any time you have questions or are feeling stuck, please don't hesitate to contact me! You can write about your experience here at your Natural Beauty Journal and I will be able to see your comments and respond.

Tone and Firm Your Whole Body

Although we are talking about a natural, non-surgical face lift today, you can also experience the benefits of a "whole body lift" in just a few minutes a day.

One of the best ways to look and feel great is to MOVE your body a little every day. Take a walk, ride a bike, swim, or just turn on the radio and dance!

Exercise brings blood and oxygen to your skin, and carries away impurities and toxins. It improves your digestion, and burns calories which helps to keep you at a healthy and attractive weight.

You don't need to do a ton of exercise to see a great benefit. Even 15 minutes a day of exercise can make a huge difference in your appearance, and your health.

We hear it all the time ... "eat right and exercise" but why is it so difficult to do?


Most of us have two different parts of ourselves. One part wants to grow, to become the best that we can be, and to accomplish those things that are dearest to our hearts.

Then, there is the other part of us would prefer to be comfortable, to stay where we are and to avoid change! This part of us might even get afraid of change, and try to "hold on" even when we know it is time to "let go".

In today's stressful world, many of us are "just getting by". It's difficult to make changes to our daily routine, even if we want to!

That's why we have a support system here through your Natural Beauty Journal so that you don't have to do this by yourself.

I am right here with you, cheering you on so that you can become the best and most naturally beautiful YOU that you can be!

Toning and Firming Your Face

For many of us, when we think of natural beauty, we think of how our face looks. That's why we spend so much time and energy taking care of our skin and applying makeup so we can look our best.

One of the least known natural beauty secrets for lifelong beauty is exercising your face!

You'll be amazed at what this can do for you. Not only does facial exercise improve your skin tone and reduce wrinkles and sagging skin, but it can even reshape your entire facial structure.

Double chins disappear, rings around the neck disappear, and bags under the eyes disappear. Even wrinkles disappear! It's quite amazing, and I'm writing from my own experience here. I've only been doing facial exercise for a few months but already I am seeing the benefits.

It does take a while to see results, and they actually get better over time. You actually begin looking younger the longer you exercise your face!

I've learned that it's important to use a comprehensive facial exercise program so that your face develops a smooth and sculpted look. Some people do spot facial exercises for just a few areas, and their faces end up looking bulky.

Action Step #2 - Exercise Your Face!

Try these few sample facial exercises once each day for five days so you can get an idea of what it feels like to exercise your face. Then rest for two days and exercise again for another five days.

Although this is not a comprehensive facial exercise program, it will give you an idea of some of the potential benefits of exercising your face!

What did your skin look like after one week of facial exercise? How did you feel?

My Experience With
Facial Exercise Programs

I spent several weeks researching various facial exercise programs and trying out all kinds of different exercises.

One of the things I looked at carefully were the results of the exercise programs. I look first and foremost at the person who has created the program.

Does the person seem trustworthy? Do they look authentically and naturally beautiful to me?

Well, honestly, some of the people who created facial exercise programs looked a little "plastic" to me. Their faces just didn't look real and so I didn't want to use their programs.

As I continued my research, I found some facial exercises actually caused the wrinkles around my mouth to get worse!

I finally decided that I needed a program that worked the whole face in a more comprehensive way. I looked at several different programs very carefully and finally chose Carolyn’s Facial Fitness program. There were several reasons that her program stood out among all the others.

The first was her results. Carolyn's own before and after pictures are absolutely stunning, and so are those of her clients. See Before and After Pictures Secondly, the program is designed to be done in just 15 minutes a day. That was a big plus for me!

Third, the program seemed to be quite intelligent to me. She did many years of careful research, and purchased many different facial exercise programs to find the ones that worked most effectively for herself and her clients and students. She provides a lot of helpful information on her site and she clearly knows what she is talking about.

Fourth, Carolyn's program is affordable, and much less expensive than most anti-aging wrinkle serums! Another big plus for me.

I've been doing the exercises for a few months now and my husband is really starting to notice. He's made comments now almost every day about how great I look! Visit Carolyn’s Facial Fitness Enjoy, and I'll see you next week!
