5 Ways Face Exercises Improve Our Appearance

face exercisesCosmetic procedures and injectables may have dominated headlines over the past decade, but an old school regimen is having a reboot: Facercise. This proprietary system of face exercises offers a holistic approach to combat the signs of aging by toning and tightening the synergistic muscles of the face and neck. Facercise offers the perfect natural and non-invasive way to rejuvenate and revitalize the face.

Read on to learn about the benefits of face exercises and how they enhance natural beauty.

1. Toning and Strengthening Facial Muscles

Just as we exercise our bodies to keep them fit and strong, facial exercises target the muscles in our face. By engaging in regular facial exercises, you can tone and strengthen these muscles, resulting in a more sculpted and defined appearance. These exercises work to counteract the effects of gravity, helping to lift and firm sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore youthful contours.

2. Improved Blood Circulation and Oxygenation

Face exercises promote increased blood circulation and oxygenation to the skin, ensuring a fresh supply of nutrients and oxygen. This improved blood flow helps nourish the skin cells, giving you a healthy, radiant complexion. Additionally, increased blood circulation can aid in the removal of toxins, reducing puffiness and promoting a natural glow.

3. Face Exercises Enhance Facial Symmetry

Facial asymmetry is a common concern for so many! Facial exercises help address this issue by targeting specific muscles to restore balance and symmetry. Facial exercises strengthen weaker muscles and release tension in overactive ones to contribute to a more harmonious facial appearance.

4. Stress Relief and Relaxation

Our faces bear the weight of our emotions and daily stress. Face exercises not only provide physical benefits but also help reduce stress so you can relax. The intentional movements and deep breathing associated with Facercise helps relax facial muscles, release tension, and promote a sense of serenity. This contributes to an overall feeling of well-being and a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

5. Cost-effective Alternative to Invasive Procedures

In a world where cosmetic procedures are becoming increasingly popular, facial exercises offer a cost-effective and non-invasive alternative. Instead of resorting to surgical facelifts or injections, facial exercises provide a natural approach to combat the signs of aging. Just a few minutes a day of face exercises will help you see noticeable results without breaking the bank or undergoing any invasive procedures.

Face exercises are a time-tested, natural way to rejuvenate and revitalize the face. They offer a holistic approach to maintaining a youthful appearance, with their ability to tone and strengthen facial muscles, improve blood circulation, enhance facial symmetry, and promote relaxation. When you incorporate facial exercises into your daily routine, you’ll unleash a more radiant, youthful, and confident you—without invasive procedures or costly treatments.

The Dangers of Botox and Fillers

dangers of BotoxCosmetic procedures involving Botox and fillers have become increasingly popular for those seeking a youthful appearance without undergoing surgery. While these treatments may smooth wrinkles and freeze your expressions, there are many potential risks and side effects. Read on to learn more about the dangers associated with Botox and fillers and why a natural approach like facial exercises is safer.

1. Temporary and Unnatural Results

Risk of Overuse

Excessive or inappropriate use of Botox and fillers can lead to unnatural facial expressions or features. Overuse easily results in a frozen or “plastic” appearance that telegraphs the use of injectables.

Temporary Nature

Both Botox and fillers provide temporary results. Patients get addicted and undergo repeated treatments to maintain their desired look, exposing them to potential risks each time. We’ve all seen that individual who went too far with the fillers!

2. Adverse Reactions and Allergic Responses

Possible Side Effects

Botox and fillers can cause side effects, including redness, swelling, bruising, or pain at the injection site. In some cases, patients may experience headaches, muscle weakness, or flu-like symptoms after Botox injections.

Allergic Reactions

While rare, some people do experience allergic reactions to fillers. This may lead to itching, redness, or more severe complications.

3. Infection Risk

Injection Site Infections

Any injection carries a risk of infection. Improperly administered injections or unsanitary conditions may lead to bacterial contamination, resulting in localized or systemic infections.

4. Complications with Fillers

Nodule Formation

Filler injections can lead to the formation of nodules or lumps beneath the skin. These nodules may be visible or palpable and can require additional treatment to address.

Migration and Displacement

Fillers may migrate from the injection site over time, leading to uneven distribution and asymmetry.

5. Unregulated Practices and Practitioner Expertise

Lack of Regulation

In some regions, the cosmetic industry is not as tightly regulated as other medical fields. This lack of oversight can lead to unqualified individuals performing injections, increasing the risk of complications.

Put your health and wellness first! A daily regimen of facial exercises will help you achieve your desired aesthetic outcomes while avoiding the dangers of Botox and fillers and the unnatural appearance they create.

6 Tips for Happy Winter Skin 500 333 Facercise

6 Tips for Happy Winter Skin

Even though the holidays are over, winter is still in effect—even for those of us in Southern California. Winter weather can be harsh for our skin, which means we need to step up our skin care programs. Add these winter skin care tips to your regimen to boost the effects of facial exercises and protect your skin from the elements.

1. Tweak Your Exfoliation Routine

Sloughing away dead skin cells is extra important during winter months. Find a gentle but effective exfoliation product like Face Lift to Go  to remove dulling dead skin and help speed up skin cell regeneration. For best results, do Face Lift to Go every week.

2. Dry Brush Daily

Help promote the shedding of dead skin cells from your body by dry brushing every day. It also boosts circulation which makes your skin glow.

3. Cool it Down

As great as a hot bath or shower feels this time of year, hot water wreaks havoc on our skin. It strips the skin of its natural oils, which sets the stage for serious dryness and weakens the dermis’ natural protective barrier. Wash your face and take showers with lukewarm water.

4. Moisturize Your Face and Hands

Low humidity coupled with colder temperatures can draw moisture away from the skin, leaving it dry, tight and extra sensitive. Keep your skin moisturized with rich products like my Ultra Hyaluronic Cream, which attracts moisture.

5. Enhance Body Lotion

The skin on your body is just as susceptible to dryness this time of year. Increase the potency of your lotion by adding a rich emollient oil like vitamin E to it. Your skin will be softer and more supple.

6. Pat it Dry

When you get out of the shower, don’t wipe away the water. Instead, dab at the excess water and lock the moisture in with lotion, oil or moisturizer immediately. You only have about three minutes to take advantage of post-shower hydration.

If you’re ready to look younger this year, start your Facercise practice today. Our remarkable system of facial exercises will change your life!

How Facercise Eliminates the Wattle

facial exercisesMany clients write me in search of facial exercises to eliminate their double chin, aka “the wattle.” It’s a telltale sign of age and one of the hardest things to get rid of. The wattle can also be caused by weight gain—once the extra weight is lost, the area can appear saggy or droopy. A double chin can be a major source of insecurity for those who suffer from this condition.

The Risks

Many people go under the knife or try liposuction to spot treat this area with very disappointing results. Some patients suffer dimpling, asymmetry or only slight improvement after trying these surgical methods. Others try injections—up to 50 in the area per treatment—to diminish the appearance of a wattle. However, there is the risk of infection and it can take months and several treatments to see an improvement in chin fat. Then there is a list of nasty side effects that can occur, such as swelling in the entire region, hardening, numbness and difficulty breathing. Some even suffer from hives when receiving injections in the chin area.

A Safe Solution

The good news is, you don’t need to pour your savings into injectables, laser treatments and invasive surgery to get rid of a double chin. You can reduce its appearance in a matter of weeks with diligent practice of Facercise, our synergistic system of facial exercises. By doing these every day, you will experience significant lifting and tightening of the area. Within weeks, you’ll see marked improvement. After months, you may eliminate the double chin completely.

While one of our facial exercises specifically targets the area, it’s best to perform all of the exercises available on the Ultimate Facercise DVD. This is because the muscles of the face are synergistic, which means they all work together to accomplish the same movements and function. So while your goal may be to eliminate the wattle, your entire face will appear more lifted and toned. With consistent practice, you’ll experience dramatic, long-lasting results and look younger than ever.

6 Ways to Boost Collagen 500 333 Facercise

6 Ways to Boost Collagen

Collagen is everything if you want firm, supple skin. This naturally occurring protein is responsible for smoothing wrinkles and maintaining skin’s elasticity. Unfortunately, once we hit age 20—that’s right, 20—our collagen supplies start breaking down. Skin becomes thinner, more fragile and less resilient.

Fortunately, there are easy ways to boost collagen.

1. Eat a Vitamin C-Rich Diet

Research shows that a vitamin C stimulates collagen production and helps reduce oxidative damage. Eat a diet rich in this antioxidant vitamin to promote smoother, firmer skin. Produce like kiwi, mangoes, citrus, berries, tomatoes, red bell peppers and green leafy vegetables are excellent sources.

2. Facial Exercises

A regular Facercise practice boosts collagen production and improves blood flow. Facial exercises also combats muscle atrophy and helps define contours. There is no better way to get firmer, stronger skin!

3. Facial Massage

Facial massage is great way to stimulate collagen production while reducing stress. Use upward motions when washing or massaging your face.

4. Eat Foods Rich in Sulphur

Sulphur is a trace mineral that aids in collagen formation. Some good sources are beans, garlic, eggs, cabbage and nuts like almonds, walnuts, peanuts and Brazil nuts.

5. Protect Against Sun Damage

The sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays cause photodamage and break down collagen. Wear sun protective block every day, rain or shine. At a minimum, apply it to your face, neck, décolletage and hands. Eat foods that contain the antioxidant lycopene, which helps fight sun damage from the inside out. Tomatoes, watermelon, grapefruit, guava, papaya, cabbage and red bell peppers are awesome sources.

6. Avoid Sugar and Smoke

Two of collagen’s worst enemies are smoking and sugar. Smoking restricts blood flow, which leads to collagen depletion. Sugar attaches to collagen and weighs it down, decreasing flexibility and making it stuff. Eliminate both if you want youthful, glowing skin.

If you’re ready to change your life, try Facercise, our revolutionary system of facial exercises.

5 Beauty & Anti-Aging Resolutions for 2024 500 271 Facercise

5 Beauty & Anti-Aging Resolutions for 2024

face exercisesAre you ready to change your life this year? A great way to start is to commit to looking your best possible, which in turn will make you feel better. When we follow a consistent beauty and antiaging regimen that includes face exercises, we see results! Below are some suggestions that will help you turn back the clock.

1. Get your Zzzs

Sleep is critical for healthy looking skin and maintaining your weight. In addition to those lovely dark circles sleep deprivation causes, research shows that it also accelerates the skin’s aging process, from increasing the appearance of wrinkles to hindering the dermis’ ability to repair UV damage.

2. Dry Brush

This technique boosts circulation and exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal a healthy, youthful glow. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins from our body. For best results, use my Sisal louffas imported from Germany.

3. Facercise Daily

Do your facial exercises twice a day to help lift and firm sagging skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and boost circulation so that your skin glows.

4. Use Retinol

If you have yet to add retinol into your regimen, do it now. It boosts collagen to help speed cell turnover, which helps to smooth the skin and even out discoloration. Try our Luxe Retinol serum for optimum results.

5. Remove Makeup

Sleeping with makeup on causes serious skin chaos, from clogging pores and breaking down collagen to increasing exposure to free radicals, all of which result in premature aging.

6. Give Your Hands the Royal Treatment

Or at least give your hands the same treatment you give your face! Apply hand cream twice a day and wear sunscreen before you step out of the house. Treat them to a hydrating masque once a week and always wear gloves when you wash the dishes.
