All of us want to maintain our youthful appearance for as long as we possibly can. There are creams that help, surgical treatments that can help, and a number of other products that you can buy today to try and help combat the signs of aging, but there are some things that you can do at home that won’t cost you anything more than a bit of your time.
Facial exercises have been known for a long time to help reduce the signs of aging, if done correctly. Anyone can do these simple exercises to help maintain the muscle tone under their skin, which in turn gives their skin a firmer, smoother appearance. Try out some of these exercises on your forehead, lips, eyes and eyebrows today to give your face that instant face lift you have always wanted.
Having a forehead that is free from wrinkles and any other signs of aging will help keep you youthful for longer. The best way to give your forehead a good facial work out is to take both of your index fingers and then place them right above your eyes. Then try to raise your eyebrows. While you are raising those eyebrows, keep pulling that skin that wants to raise downwards. Perform this exercise every day, and for at least ten times a day, to keep your forehead smooth and ageless.
Wrinkles around the lips are a telling sign that we are aging, but they are preventable. Before you do this exercise, make sure that you thoroughly wash your hands and fingers. Now, take a finger, place it between your lips, and close your lips around it. Suck on that finger as hard as you possibly can for at least 3 seconds, and then release. Repeat this simple exercise at least 15 times a day to keep your lip area smooth and free from fine lines and wrinkles.
Your Eyes and Eyebrows
The eyes and eyebrow area are always the area that most women want to keep free from fine lines and wrinkles. After all, the eyes are one of the most noticeable features on our face, so any wrinkling in that area is surely an indicator of how old (or young) we really are.
To begin this exercise, close your eyes and relax yourself. Slowly move your eyes in an up and down motion below your eyelids. Repeat this exercise at least 15 times and do it at least once a day.
For your eyebrows, sit with your back straight, close your eyes, and relax again. Now, slowly lift up your eyebrows while stretching your eyelids. Make sure you keep your eyes closed while you’re doing this. Do this at least 15 times and once a day to keep your eyebrow area raised and wrinkle free.
Bonus Tip: Sunscreen
In addition to performing facial exercises, it’s important to always wear a sunscreen on your face before you go out every day. Aim to wear at least an SPF of 15 every day, rain or shine, to keep your face as young as possible.
