“Facebuilding”, or training of the face, helps the skin to become more elastic and aligned. It also improves blood flow and lymph flow, removes puffiness, and makes facial features more expressive. Doctors conducted a 20-week experiment in which 16 women from ages 40 to 65 years old participated. During this time, all participants did exercises for the muscles of their forehead, eyebrows, eyes, mouth, and neck. The experiment showed that such exercises actually improved the skin on their face and reduced visible signs of aging.
Bright Side has collected 7 facial exercises to help you maintain muscle strength and perhaps repeat the experience of Benjamin Button!
How does it work?
Facebuilding can help you to remove nasolabial folds and wrinkles from the forehead, eyes, and lips. It really tightens the skin and gives it a youthful glow.
We must be clear though, that 2 days of facebuilding is not enough time to really change anything. But if you want to stick to the routine and work long and hard, let’s give it a go!
Facebuilding is a series of exercises. Always begin the routine with a warm-up of the face using your hands. Squeeze and unclench your eyelids, relax the face, frown, and smile. Perform this exercise at least 10 times in a row. Try not to stretch the skin of your face, but instead, gently squeeze it. Then rub your face with a wet warm towel and relax.
After the warm-up, begin to perform the following exercises.
