There are many different variations of doing facial exercises and most of them may work in helping you eliminate wrinkles. But this does not mean that you can start inventing your own exercises without knowing the basic thing about how these exercises carry out their effects.
One of the more common exercises done to eliminate wrinkles near the eyes and on the forehead is by pulling down on the skin under your eyes, and raising your eyebrows as high as you can. This will help those who have a lot of frown lines on their forehead.
Thin lips, sagging cheeks and laugh lines are also a common problem. You can perform exercises such as pulling down on your cheeks while smiling as hard as you can, or alternately puckering your lips and smiling to help get rid of these problems.
As you can see, these exercises make your muscles stretch to their maximum capacity. This is similar to using weights on your muscles so that they can increase their tone. Once this happens, they can pull stronger on the skin thus eliminating sagging skin and wrinkles.
In addition to just increasing the tone of your muscles, your skin needs to be stretched in such a way that it does not promote the formation of wrinkles. If you pull on your skin the normal way it folds, this will just promote the formation of more wrinkles. You need to pull on it in the opposite direction so that the chances of wrinkles forming will be reduced.
Now that you know how facial exercises are able to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, then you can start making your own variation of the exercises. You may alternate the recommended exercises from your own exercises so that you won’t be bored with the same repetitions everyday.
By alternately doing the recommended and your own exercises, you may be more motivated to continue doing the exercises as opposed to doing the same exact thing everyday. You may also teach a friend of yours how you do the exercises so that the both of you can do the exercises at the same time.
A lot of people give up on doing facial exercises easily due to the time it takes for it to produce results. You must try and keep yourself motivated by doing variations of the exercises, and try to get someone to perform the exercises with you. This way, you can motivate each other to continue performing the exercises until you start seeing results.
