Have you ever wondered if you could have a face lift without surgery? The answer is yes!
Everyone has the desire at some point to minimize the aging process, but most people are hesitant to go under the knife to achieve the results they want. The good news is that there are several other choices to help you look younger and more vibrant!
Facial massage is fast becoming one of the favored techniques for fighting the appearance of fine wrinkles and dull-looking skin. Cleansing the skin is always the first step before the actual massage - this step helps to clear away the impurities and dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Massaging the facial area stimulates circulation, which means more blood flows to the face, giving the skin a youthful glow.
Have you been frustrated with skin that seems to be sagging? Facial massage increases skin's elasticity and helps to firm up facial muscles. You will love how tight and healthy your skin looks. Facial massage also serves to decrease the appearance of laugh lines and wrinkles on our faces that we all seem to notice as the years go by.
One caution for those who have sensitive skin: make sure the person massaging your face has experience with facial massage specifically and has a gentle touch. Massage of the facial area shouldn't extend past 20 minutes or else it's possible that sensitive skin could become inflamed or irritated.
You may have heard of acupuncture, but have you heard of acupressure as a means of giving yourself a face lift without surgery? It's an amazing technique that is said to improve the appearance of your skin by balancing the energy within the body.
Using fingers to release the tension and stress from key pressure points on the face and neck is how acupressure is performed. As a result, skin takes on a healthy glow and wrinkles and fine lines seem to disappear.
Acupressure is hailed as the best face lift technique in place of surgery given that it is not at all invasive and actually boosts the body's ability to produce collagen. We all know that collagen helps the skin appear more youthful, right? Why not produce your own collagen naturally instead of having it injected into your face?
People who have tried acupressure have also reported fewer acne breakouts, no more fine lines, and increase facial muscle tone!
Those who have sensitive skin should be aware that if too much pressure is applied to the skin, you could experience inflamed or reddened skin.
Acupuncture for the face? Absolutely! This ancient technique has been used for centuries for many reasons, but is most recently been employed to help fight the signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. How does it work?
Tiny needles are inserted into the facial area at specific areas - especially where fine lines or wrinkles are beginning to appear. The body reacts naturally to the insertion of the needles by increasing blood circulation to those areas, which in turn causes the body to produce its own collagen. Your wrinkles, fine lines, and acne seem to magically disappear!
Perhaps you're not crazy about someone touching your face - a facial wrap might be your answer to fighting the effects of aging skin. Facial wraps are designed to remove the impurities from the skin's surface, allowing the skin to breathe and nourish it at the same time.
How does a wrap remove impurities? The wrap itself is filled with healthy nutrients and minerals and then wrapped around the facial area for roughly an hour per day. Skin naturally appears healthier and more youthful when impurities are removed on a daily basis. These wraps also compress the skin, giving the facial area a natural lift.
This is one of my favorite natural face lift methods. It is one of the most affordable approaches to safe anti-aging skincare and if you choose the right type of program, you will actually look younger over time as your face naturally lifts and becomes more radiant.
You do need to do some research and be a little choosy when committing to a facial exercise program. Some facial exercises create a boxy or bulky appearance that makes you look a little like a wrestler!! :(
I found this myself when I tried to create my own program for face lift exercise. After about a week I didn't recognize myself, and it wasn't good!!
I finally surrendered to spending a little money to get a thoroughly researched professional face lift exercise program from Carolyn's Facial Fitness which has done wonders for my appearance, and has also reduced neck tension and headaches.
I like this program because it can be done in just 15 minutes, three to five times per week, and it creates a naturally toned appearance that brings out the natural radiance and beauty of one's face.
See some of the before and after pictures ... impressive!
