Facial Exercises Can Help You Stay Looking Young
Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on August 16, 2010
If you want to maintain a fresh and youthful appearance but don’t have the funds for facelift surgery or other cosmetic enhancements, you may be able to maintain your youthful look by doing facial exercises on a regular basis. Facial exercises that strain and stretch your skin and contract your muscles can help to keep your skin looking smooth, resilient and toned, and doing these exercises regularly can help to minimize sagging skin and wrinkles.
The reason why certain types of facial exercises work is because they help to increase blood circulation around the face and neck area, and also help to trigger the cell renewal process. Skin that appears dull or dry may be covered by a thick layer of dead skin cells. These skin cells can be sloughed away with a high quality exfoliant and manual massage, which helps to increase circulation and also helps to improve the skin’s complexion. Softer, more youthful skin will be able to absorb more moisture and wrinkles and lines will become less noticeable.
Those who are dealing with acne or acne scars can improve the condition of their skin by exfoliating regularly, and also by performing facial exercises that promote cell turnover. Increasing cell turnover helps the skin heal and renew itself so that damaged skin is less noticeable.
Many dermatologists and medical spas recommend applying nutrient-rich serums and compounds to the skin in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of aging. Facial exercises can be performed as a preventative measure to reduce the risk of lines and wrinkles, and can also keep the skin looking supple, flexible and strong. Maintaining a facial care regimen of exercises, topical anti aging products, and professional facials can help to promote collagen production and reduce the effects of aging.
