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.

5 Tips for Turning Back the Clock 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Turning Back the Clock

Face exercisesThere’s no need to go under the knife to turn back the clock on the signs of aging. Instead of risking unnatural looking results or unhealthy side effects, you can turn back the clock naturally. With a consistent regimen of techniques like exercise, dry brushing and Facercise face exercises, you can look your best and boost your health.

Here are five natural methods for turning back the clock.

1. Work it Out

Exercise is key to looking and feeling your best. Studies show that regular workouts detoxify our bodies by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage. Exercise also moves lymph tissue to increase healing and strengthen the immune system. The result is reduced inflammation and detoxified, healthier skin. Working out also tones and strengthens muscles so they appear firmer and more defined. Try to squeeze in the three pillars of fitness for best results: strength, cardiovascular and flexibility training.

2. Dry Brushing

Dry brushing exfoliates dry, flaky skin and unclogs the pores. Similar to exercise, dry brushing detoxifies by boosting circulation and the lymphatic system, which removes toxins from your body. Dry brushing also stimulates your nervous system and releases endorphins, which can bolster your mood and make you feel energized.

3. Facial Exercises

Facercise boosts circulation in the 57 synergistic muscles of the face and neck to impart a healthy, youthful glow. It strengthens those muscles, while releasing tension that causes future wrinkles. Facial exercises also firm and tighten skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

4. No Lipo Lipo

This amazing body sculpting technique lifts, tones and reduces inches all over the body. It’s completely safe and non-invasive, so there is no down time or risky side effects. No Lipo Lipo benefits are increased when done in conjunction with dry brushing, as shown in the No Lipo Lipo DVD, now streaming on Amazon.

5. Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Diet

Eat a healthy diet packed with antioxidant-rich foods to combat the signs of aging. Antioxidants combat damage caused by free radicals, the sun and other environmental stressors. Look for colorful foods and produce including berries, citrus, apples, beets, red cabbage, nuts, artichokes, dark chocolate and leafy greens like spinach, Swiss chard and kale.

The Benefits of a Colorful Diet 633 200 Facercise

The Benefits of a Colorful Diet

how to improve collagen in the faceA healthy lifestyle is essential for beautiful, youthful looking skin. While we’ve shared how to improve collagen in face with specific foods, a good general guideline to live by is to eat a colorful diet. Antioxidants are responsible for the vivid hues in many foods. This means that eating an array of produce from the color spectrum helps combat the signs of aging. It’s an excellent way to complement a daily practice of facial exercises and good skin care protocol.

Here is a breakdown of some of the benefits of each hue:

Green

Leafy greens are rich in iron, fiber, folate and vitamins A, C, E and K. While vitamin K is less common than the others in the list, it’s important—it protects against bone disease, inflammation and dark under eye circles. These greens also contain indoles, isocyanate and sulforaphane, which inhibit carcinogens and therefore may ward off various cancers. Some good choices are kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, bok choy and mustard greens.

Red

Many red and pink foods combat free radical damage that causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin. They contain lycopene, a vital carotenoid that boosts heart health and protects the skin against sun damage from the inside out. It has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots and melasma. Lycopene also benefits blood pressure, bone health and the prostate. Some excellent sources include tomatoes, red bell peppers, pink grapefruit, mangoes, papaya and guava. These choices are also very high in vitamin C, which boosts collagen production and immunity.

Orange

Orange-colored foods like pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, yams, carrots, apricots, cantaloupe and mangoes contain alpha- and beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body. These powerful carotenoids help remove destructive free radical scavengers from the body, stopping damage in its tracks. Beta-carotene also helps protect against sun damage and imparts a healthy, natural glow.

Purple

Both red-purple and blue-purple translates to some powerful antioxidants. The general rule is that the darker the color, the more antioxidant rich the fruit or vegetable. Eggplant, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, beets, prunes and cranberries all help fight free radical damage in a big way.

Yellow-Green

Avocados are a good example of this category, which is loaded with carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin to fight macular degeneration, and beta-cryptothanxin, which promotes cellular communication. Antioxidant-rich yellow green foods that boost skin health include green peas, collard greens, yellow corn and honeydew melon.

Load your plate with as many of these colors as possible to fight the signs of aging and give your skin a youthful glow. Follow these dietary tips for how to improve collagen in the face and do facial exercises daily and you will look and feel your youthful best!

2022 Beauty Resolutions 1024 683 Facercise

2022 Beauty Resolutions

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 my Retinol Skin Conditioner 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.

5 Holiday Glow Up Tips 500 333 Facercise

5 Holiday Glow Up Tips

facial exercisesI hope you’ve been doing your facial exercises daily, because the holidays are here and it’s time to look our festive best. If you have holiday parties and special events to go to, there is still time to get your glow on and be your most beautiful self. Follow some of the tips below to prepare and pamper yourself so you can have the best season ever.

1. Get Plenty of Sleep

This hectic time of year is not the time to lose out on sleep. Sleep deprivation causes dark circles and dull skin. Plus, your skin regenerates at night when you’re sleeping, so if the duration is cut short, it minimizes results. Get on a regular sleep schedule and stick to it unless you have a special event to stay up for.

2. Keep Moving

People often slack when it comes to following their workout routines during the holidays. Don’t fall prey to this—exercise can make such a difference this time of year. It helps prevent weight gain and gets the blood flowing, which contributes to a healthy holiday glow. The endorphins released will boost your mood and help you deal with holiday stress as well. Schedule your workouts like appointments and don’t skip them!

3. Do Facial Exercises

One of the best ways to glow while preventing the signs of aging is to do Facercise twice a day. If time is limited, try the 8-minute superset available on the Ultimate Facercise DVD. Facial exercises lift, firm and tighten like nothing else. If you want to tailor your routine, consider getting a one-on-one session with Carole via Skype.

4. Hydrate

Prevent water retention and dry, dull skin by drinking plenty of water. Try sparkling water instead alcohol or drink a glass of water between each alcoholic drink. Always drink extra glasses of water to prevent dehydration and hangovers.

5. Start Masking

Do Face Lift to Go once a week throughout the season to make it look like you’ve had spa time. Do one the day of any event where you want to look picture perfect and glowy.
