Facial Exercise - Another Unconventional Way to Fight Those Wrinkles

Facial ExerciseExercise firms the body. Why not the face? If you want to fight wrinkles, but donít like the cost or risk involved with expensive cosmetic surgery, you may want to consider trying facial exercises. When done properly, facial exercises can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Just like leg lifts for legs, facial exercises firm and lift the skin on the face and work out the muscles beneath.


There are currently many different videos and books that can be found on the subject. You can search your local library, or find a resource online. In the meantime, you can firm those lips, get rid of that sagging jaw, or tighten those eyes with the facial exercises shown below.


Lip Firming Exercises

The skin around the mouth is one of the first places affected by aging. Firm the area around your lips by performing the daily exercise shown below:

  • Take a deep breath and close your mouth to inflate the skin around your lips. Keeping the upper lip smooth and line free, hold the pose for 15 seconds. Repeat 8 to 10 times.

Jaw Firming Exercises

The chin and jaw area tends to sag with age. To rejuvenate the skin, simply massage the jaw area to release tension and increase blood circulation. The following massage techniques and exercises can firm the skin in this area:

  • Using the three middle fingers of your right and left hands, press the skin under each side of the chin. Hold the pose for 8 to 10 seconds. Then, repeat the exercise on the outer parts of the jaw.
  • Press your lips together and smile until you feel tension under your jaw. Hold the pose for 8 to 10 seconds before releasing. Repeat this exercise 6 to 7 times each day.

Eye Firming Exercises

As we age, the skin underneath the eye sags, giving the appearance of under eye bags. Performing daily exercises can give the skin a lift. Here is an example of one such exercise:

          Placing your fingers underneath your eye, gently lift the skin under your lower lids. Do not scrunch your eyebrows. Using the muscles of your lower lids, lift the weight of your fingers. Hold for one second and release. Repeat this exercise 20 times twice per day.
