5 Things to Avoid If You Want to Look Younger 500 281 Facercise

5 Things to Avoid If You Want to Look Younger

facial exercisesYou don’t have to get Botox and other fillers if you want to maintain fresh, youthful good looks. In fact, a good skin care protocol coupled with daily facial exercises will make you look younger and more natural than dermal fillers. It’s also important to avoid bad habits that break down collagen, slow circulation and cause the formation of wrinkles.

Here are five habits to eliminate immediately if you want to combat the signs of aging and maintain your looks.

1. Smoking

If you want to look older, keep smoking! The repetition of the movements involved with smoking causes deep lines around the lip area and all over the face. It slows the blood supply to our skin cells, depletes vitamin A and causes collagen to break down. The result is wrinkles, fine lines and dull, grey skin.

2. Sunbathing

The sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays cause significant damage in the form of sun spots, hyperpigmentation, deep lines and wrinkles. It also breaks down collagen, which is responsible for the flexibility and firmness of our skin. Stay out of the sun and protect your skin by wearing, hats, protective clothing and sunblock with a high SPF.

3. Squinting

Squinting causes Crow’s feet, undereye bags and those lovely brow furrows nicknamed the “elevens.” Wear sunglasses to protect the area and rock a hat whenever you step into the sun. If you need readers, wear them!

4. Sleeping on Your Stomach

Sleeping on your stomach smashes the skin on your face, neck and decolletage into the pillow and sheets. The pressure causes creases that can become permanent over time. Sleep on your back to prevent this from happening.

5. Excessive Drinking

Too much alcohol dehydrates your skin, causes blood vessels to burst and leads to sleep deprivation. These effects accelerate the signs of aging and diminish overall beauty.

5 Incredible Benefits of Facercise 500 333 Facercise

5 Incredible Benefits of Facercise

facercise benefitsWhen it comes to facial exercises, Facercise is the OG! It’s not just the original, it’s the best system available. For nearly four decades, Facercise has helped hundreds of thousands around the world look 10 years younger after only a few weeks of practice. It provides the most natural looking results and bears no negative side effects or risks. All you have to do is designate a little bit of time every day to look your very best and prevent future signs of aging.

Here are five incredible benefits of Facercise:

1. Facercise Improves Facial Contours

Your facial muscles play a key role in the contouring and shaping of your face. Doing Facercise regularly boosts the contours and re-sculpts problem areas like a growing nose, saggy jowls, a “wattle” or double chin.

2. It Lifts and Tones

As we age, the collagen and elastin in our bodies slows production and ultimately breaks down. The result is sagging, droopy skin and muscle atrophy. Facercise firms and tightens the muscles, while boosting collagen and elastin production. The result is a toned, lifted appearance.

3. Facercise Makes Your Skin Glow

By boosting circulation, Facercise helps deliver more oxygen to skin cells and eliminate dead ones. The result is a brighter, more evened out complexion, improved texture and a youthful glow. Your skin will also be better able to absorb moisture and skin care products.

4. Facial Exercises Combat Wrinkles

The increased blood flow and circulation that Facercise creates also helps to smooth and counteracts fine lines and wrinkles. Facial exercises prevents wrinkles by stimulating collagen.

5. It Improves Medical Conditions

Much research shows that facial exercises relax, stretch and strengthen the 57 synergistic muscles of the face and neck. This can relieve and heal the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), a condition that causes pain in the jaw area and hinders movement. Facercise has also helped heal Bell’s palsy in numerous patients who have written us to share their results.

5 Ways to Prevent Wrinkles Naturally 500 394 Facercise

5 Ways to Prevent Wrinkles Naturally

facial exercisesBotox and dermal fillers are not the holy grail of anti-aging! There are natural, non-invasive ways to combat the signs of aging and look younger and more beautiful. A healthy lifestyle, good habits and a solid skincare regimen will work wonders without breaking your wallet. Follow the tips below to keep your skin looking as beautiful as possible.

1. Protect Against UV Rays

The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays break down collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin firm and flexible. The sun also etches fine lines and wrinkles into your skin, making them deeper over time, and causes hyperpigmentation and sun spots. To prevent these unsightly signs of aging, wear a sunblock with a minimum of SPF 30 every single day, rain or shine. If you engage in outdoor activities, re-apply sunblock every hour. Wear a hat and sunglasses whenever you step outside and protective SPF clothing when possible.

2. Facercise Daily

Practice your facial exercises every single day, twice a day for best results. This will help smooth out lines and wrinkles, stimulate the delivery of oxygen to skin cells and boost collagen and elastin production.

3. Avoid Smoking & Drinking

These two vices wreak serious havoc on your appearance. Both dehydrate your skin, break down collagen and slow down circulation. Smoking also causes the formation of deep lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds.

4. Exfoliate Regularly

It’s important to shed the dead cells that dull skin and clog pores. Exfoliate on a regular basis to remove dead skin cells and promote cellular turnover.

5. Stop Squinting

Squinting causes Crow’s feet, under-eye bags and the brow furrow often referred to as “The 11s.” Wear sunglasses with SPF protection to protect delicate under eye skin and eliminate the need to squint. If you have trouble reading, get the appropriate eyeglasses immediately.

4 Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid 500 693 Facercise

4 Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid

facerciseWhile many people spend time and money trying to prevent aging, often times they don’t protect that investment. We regularly hear from clients who do their daily facial exercises, get facials, exercise, eat right and spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products–and then undo all that good work with bad habits.

Below is a list of some of the most common beauty blunders made by men and women across the globe that  result in skin damage and premature aging. Make sure to avoid them all!

1. Smoking

This is one of the biggest blunders made—and its effects are some of the worst. Smoking is extremely toxic and causes premature aging while weakening your skin and body’s ability to heal wounds. It creates those nasty wrinkles around lips, stains teeth, creates bags under the eyes and can lead to thinning hair. Quit smoking right now and you will see a big difference in a matter of weeks!

2. Inadequate Sleep

Sleep deprivation wreaks havoc on your skin—both short-term and long-term. Sleep is when your skin and entire body rejuvenates itself, so when you skip out on your zzz’s, your skin doesn’t have time to repair.

3. Skipping Sunscreen

Research shows that almost 90 percent of wrinkles are caused by UV damage. Skipping sunscreen is obviously not a smart move. Apply it to your face, neck and hands every time you walk out the door and reapply it throughout the day—and wear it all year long.

4. Avoiding Exercise

Working out is essential for both your overall health and the youthful appearance of your skin and body. Exercise stimulates blood flow and circulation, which flushes your skin with oxygen-rich blood and strengthens its ability to repair itself. In addition, you get that healthy, youthful glow that we’re all striving for.

If you Facercise every day and avoid these mistakes, you’ll have great looking skin.

How to Get Rid of a Wattle 289 190 Facercise

How to Get Rid of a Wattle

facial exercisesOne of the most unsightly signs of aging is the “wattle.” It’s an area that facial exercises can target safely and more effectively than any other technique, from mesotherapy to liposuction. Also known as a “double chin,” “chin fat” or “submental fat,” this area is difficult to treat. The wattle can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetic, aging, weight loss and gain.

Facercise allows you to reduce this area without all the risks associated with invasive procedures. Read on to learn about some of the side effects caused by going the surgical route instead of following a regimen of facial exercises.

Infection

With both mesotherapy and liposuction, there is a chance that the wounds can get infected. This lengthens downtime and recovery while causing serious pain. An infection can lead to serious illnesses and diseases.

Anesthesia

When you resort to liposuction to eliminate chin fat, you will most likely need to be anesthetized. This is a risk that always should be avoided at all costs. Patients may also experience post-operative nausea and dizziness. Side effects of anesthesia can result in serious conditions including seizures, stroke, heart attack and sometimes even death.

Downtime

Don’t believe those who tout liposuction as a “lunchtime procedure.” It typically requires a few days of downtime and causes significant soreness.

Bruising & Swelling

Many patients endure redness and bruising, as well as swelling after liposuction or mesotherapy. Some who get mesotherapy “fat melting” injections suffer from nausea, headaches, numbness and nerve injuries. The procedure can also escalate hypertension.

Lackluster Results

Many patients experience a dimpled appearance after liposuction, while some have dents and unevenness. With mesotherapy, patients endure multiple treatments consisting of up to 50 injections in the area! I’ve had clients try it and experience no results yet suffer uncomfortable swelling and bruising after each session.

The solution to the wattle problem is clear—do facial exercises. This will tone and firm the area with no risky side effects or unnatural looking results. Your whole face will appear lifted and tightened after just a few weeks of Facercise. Save your money! Skip the pricey procedures and invest in our Ultimate Facercise DVD and book instead.

How to Combat the 5 Types of Wrinkles 500 333 Facercise

How to Combat the 5 Types of Wrinkles

facial exercisesDid you know that there are five different types of wrinkles? It’s true—and since not all wrinkles are the same, neither is their treatment. Just like these signs of aging are caused by different sources, they require different techniques for minimizing their appearance.

Read on to learn how to tackle the five different types of wrinkles.

1. Dynamic Expression Wrinkles

These babies are causes by repetitive expressions, such as smiling, frowning and laughing, which is why they’re often called “laugh lines.” They typically start out as fine lines that disappear when you stop making the expression, but over time, grow more deeply etched and become permanent. To combat: Don’t make the leap into Botox territory to make these go away. Instead, do facial exercises twice a day. In just two weeks, you’ll start to see smoother skin. Avoid overexposure to the sun and smoking—both these habits expedite the transformation from dynamic to static wrinkles.

2. Atrophic Creases

These deep parallel lines appear on the forehead and between the brows when furrowed, also known as the “Elevens.” They become more apparent with age since the collagen and elastin in our skin diminishes over time. They also worsen with fat loss, dehydrated skin and photodamage. To combat: Atrophic wrinkles can definitely be improved with a consistent Facercise practice! Limit sun exposure, wear sunscreen daily and reduce stress with a healthy habit like meditation.

3. Compression Wrinkles

These deep lines form on the face, neck and décolletage as a result of sleeping on your stomach or side. Your face and body squishes against the mattress or pillow and puts pressure on the skin. At first, compression wrinkles go away soon after you wake up. Over time, they stop disappearing and stay for the long haul. To combat: Sleep on your back. Use silk pillowcases or even a special pillow that alleviates pressure on the skin. Do facial exercises to counteract that compression!

4. Elastic Wrinkles

These tiny wrinkles on the upper lips, cheek and neck are a direct result of too much sun exposure, free radical damage and other factors that cause oxidative stress. To combat: Avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Facial exercises are an excellent remedy as they boost circulation, which helps promote collagen production. Eat an antioxidant-rich diet to help combat the free radical scavengers that deplete collagen and elastin supplies.

5. Gravitation Folds

These folds are a combination of saggy skin and wrinkles that can significantly age our appearance. They are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin from aging and UV damage. To combat: Use a retinol product to boost collagen and exfoliate dead skin cells. Facercise consistently and eat an antioxidant-rich diet. Radio-frequency and ultrasound treatments can also help tighten and firm the skin.

5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection

facial exercisesIt’s surprising how many people do facial exercises and use pricey skin care products but don’t wear sunscreen. The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage that is often beyond repair. Too much sun exposure leads to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer.

While the best way to avoid the aging effects of sun damage is to avoid exposure altogether, it’s not a realistic game plan. A powerful sunscreen, such as our Protective Sunblock SPF 30, must be your weapon of choice.

Read on for some tips to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.

1. Apply SPF Sunscreen Every Day

Whether you live in sunny southern California or rainy Seattle, daily sunscreen is a mandatory. Use a minimum of SPF 30 and wear it every single day, rain, snow or shine. If you are outside for extended periods of time (more than 75 minutes), generously re-apply your sunscreen several times.

2. Don’t Wait Until You’re Outside

It takes a least 20 minutes for your skin to properly absorb sunscreen and be completely protected. For best results, apply sunscreen a minimum of 20 minutes prior to exposure and before you get dressed. If you apply it with your clothes on, chances are you will miss critical areas.

3. Apply Generously

The old adage “less is more” does not apply when it comes to sunscreen. Since people are of all different sizes, there is no generic amount of sunscreen that works for everyone. The only rule that stands is that you can never apply too much. Use enough to provide even coverage all over your body—and then some. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is lightweight and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts no matter how much you use.

4. Don’t Count on Makeup

Many people make the mistake of using moisturizer or foundation with SPF in lieu of sunscreen. You can definitely use both for added protection, but never skip sunscreen altogether. These products must be used in conjunction with sunscreen to provide proper coverage.

5. Keep it Fresh

Sunscreens do expire, so don’t hoard old bottles. Their active ingredients lose strength over time, rendering them ineffective. Bottles can also get contaminated when kept for too long. Buy new bottles every season to make sure your sunscreen is working.

How to Drink More Water 500 294 Facercise

How to Drink More Water

facial exercisesAre you drinking enough water? If not, you run the risk of dehydration, which takes a toll on your body and your skin. When we don’t drink enough water, our organs suffer and can shut down. Since your skin is the largest organ in your body, just imagine the damage it incurs when it’s dehydrated. It becomes weaker, more sensitive and less effective as a protective barrier. Dehydration derails results from your facial exercises too—it causes skin irritation, redness, flakiness, cracking and premature aging. The plumpness, firmness and elasticity of skin diminishes and its texture becomes rough. Not a good look!

Dehydrated skin occurs when skin is composed of less than 10 percent or water. This makes drinking six to eight glasses of water per day especially vital during hot summer months. Drinking water can seem like a chore sometimes, so here are some tips to help make sure you hydrate adequately.

Wake Up & Hydrate

Make it a habit to drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up. Do this before having coffee, juice or anything else.

Carry a Water bottle

Have a water bottle with you at all times so you can sip on the go. Opt for one with measurements so you can keep track of your daily intake.

Spike Your Water

If water is too boring for you, add some flavor by steeping or infusing fresh fruit or veggies. Lemon water is an excellent choice because promotes healthy digestion, combats bloating and boosts detoxification. You can also add some excitement with berries, grapefruit, cucumber slices or mint. Take it to another level by doing combinations like watermelon-mint, cucumber-basil or strawberry-kiwi.

Infuse

Invest in an infusion bottle so you can take your flavored water on the go.

Make it Like Clockwork

Set your alarm to remind you to drink water several times throughout the day.

Make it a Ritual

Set aside a time each day for enjoying a glass of lemon or fruit-infused water. Enjoy it with an afternoon snack and make it like a healthy happy hour break.

6 Tips For Treating a Sunburn 500 333 Facercise

6 Tips For Treating a Sunburn

facial exercisesNo matter how many times we’re reminded of the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays, some of us still get sunburned. Whether you forgot to apply sunscreen after your daily facial exercises or simply underestimated the weather, sunburns are no joke. Sunburns are painful and directly damage the DNA of skin cells, causing wrinkles, sun spots—or worse—skin cancer. The UV rays that cause sunburns also produce free radicals that further damage the appearance of our skin.

If you experience a sunburn, there are remedies that can help relieve the symptoms, expedite healing and minimize damage. Read on for some tips for treating sunburns.

1. Get Out of the Sun

The minute you feel a sunburn coming on, get out of the sun so you can minimize damage. If you already have a sunburn, stay away from the sun altogether until it’s completely healed.

2. Draw a Cool Bath

Take a cool bath with a few tablespoons of baking soda and/or Epsom salts to cool and soothe your sunburn. Soap can further dehydrate you skin, so avoid using it until your skin heals. While taking a cool shower sounds like a good idea, the continuous spray of water can irritate your skin further.

3. Apply a Chamomile Compress

Many people reach for ice though it’s too cold and may be irritating. Reach for a cool compress with chamomile tea instead to soothe burned skin and reduce inflammation.

4. Moisturize

Immediately after a bath, slather on a creamy lotion or our Nourishing E Oil to rehydrate parched skin. The rich antioxidant content of vitamin E helps fight sun damage.

5. Apply Aloe Vera

Slather pure aloe vera all over your body to soothe skin and expedite healing. Aloe has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and yields a cooling effect on burnt skin.

6. Pop an Advil

Over-the-counter ibuprofen can reduce inflammation and ease the symptoms of a sunburn.

Learn your lesson and do whatever you can to avoid scorching your precious skin in the future. Wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine, to avoid that blazing red look that causes so much damage.

5 Amazing Benefits of Facial Exercises 500 333 Facercise

5 Amazing Benefits of Facial Exercises

facial exercisesFacial exercises are the best way to look and feel our very best naturally. They eliminate the need to get fillers or go under the knife to maintain a youthful look. Regular practice of my Facercise program will help you achieve natural looking results that trump any surgical procedure. Plus, there are no risks, side effects or downtime associated with a facial exercises regimen.

Just like the muscles in our body start to lose elasticity as we age, so do those in our face, which results in a sagging appearance. Facial exercises firm up the muscles that support the skin so that it looks more toned and lifted. People of all ages can benefit from Facercise, whether to delay the signs of aging or to resculpt areas, such as a double chin or long nose.

Read on for the top 5 benefits of a consistent Facercise regimen.

1. Facial Exercises Stimulate Blood Circulation

This provides nutrition to the cells of the outer layers of the epidermis, resulting in improved skin tone and color. Boosting circulation can also help combat the development of fine lines and wrinkles by providing the cells and blood with more oxygen.

2. A Brighter Complexion

Exercising your face can brighten up your complexion by giving you a nice glow while improving the overall texture of your skin. By delivering more oxygen to skin cells, old damaged cells are eliminated and the epidermis is better able to absorb moisture.

3. Facercise Give You a Natural Lift

Facial exercises boost collagen and elastic production, which results in a more lifted appearance. These two essential proteins help maintain the elasticity of skin, soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and smooth those sunken or sagging areas, such as droopy eyelids, saggy jowls and folds in the cheeks.

4. Detoxification

Facial exercises stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins, dirt and bacteria from skin and boosts your metabolism.

5. Relief From TMJ

Many studies show that facial exercises can relax the muscles that are linked to Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), a disorder that causes pain and compromised movement of the joint and muscles surrounding the jaw. Exercising the facial muscles will stretch, strengthen and relax out overworked muscles and joints, resulting in decreased pain.
