Face lift exercises

Lifting gymnastics is another effective facelift remedy. It must be done every day, morning and evening. Before exercising, the skin should be cleansed and moisturized with a cream. One session will take you no more than 30 minutes. To start the workout, sit in front of a mirror in a comfortable position. Observing the facial muscles involved will help you do the exercise properly.

At the same time, the toe pads should be directed upwards. At the same time, with the middle finger of the second hand, it is necessary to pull the tip of the nose down.
  • Then place the fingers of both hands at a certain point. Place the middle finger in the center of the forehead, place the index finger higher, where the frontal bone bulge is located, and place the ring finger at the base of the eyebrow. All fingertips should be facing upwards.
  • Now start doing circular massaging movements with all fingers at the same time. In this case, the right hand should be clockwise, and the left - counterclockwise. Do the exercise for 1 minute.

Exercises for the upper eyelids. The skin on the eyelids is very fine and thin and on it the first wrinkles are formed. To avoid such changes, it is necessary to:

  • Place three fingers of both hands under the eyebrows. From this point, lift your eyebrows with your finger pads, trying to reach the brow bone line. Hold this position for 10 seconds with your eyes open.

With regard to exercise, "puffy cheeks" are very effective:

  • Take a deep breath, inhale the maximum amount of air in your mouth, moisten your cheeks. Without expelling air, start pressing it with the palm of your hand. To hold your hands, try to expand your cheeks as much as possible during this time.
  • Remain in this position for about 15 seconds, then relax.
  • Repeat the exercise 4 times.
