Face lift exercise - want to "lift" your face with a few movements instead of surgery? This page has all the details about face lift exercises, including the 3 "moves" that really are all you need to do (the why behind this is also explained)!
Forget the complicated 30minute routines, and just follow this page...
When you think of a face lift a scalpel might come to mind. If dramatic results are what you're after, then perhaps surgery is indeed the best option...
BUT - "non surgical" face lift exercises can help lift areas, smooth contours, and prevent future sagging and wrinkles.
Plus, they have additional anti aging skin benefits - like increased blood flow and nourishment - so are well worth trying!
Most face lift exercise courses or books have numerous "moves" to follow. Now, if you did all the moves consistently I am sure you would see results.
However, there are a select few that are most beneficial - they make the biggest difference to the most important areas with the least amount of time and effort.
Think of them like the compound moves the squat and the dead lift at the gym - these two exercises give much faster, stronger, inclusive results in a lot less time than hundreds of isolated biceps curls, calve raises, and shoulder shrugs ever will.
Let's exercise smarter.
The three facial areas that are generally the most in need of a "lift" are the cheeks, forehead/eyebrows, and jawline.
Using our squat analogy again, strengthening these areas with the right moves becomes "inclusive" - any other little areas benefit as well (in other words, it will give a good lift to the whole face).
So, below you will find THREE - yes just three - of the best face lift exercises. One exercise for each area.
The quick videos on this page are the holy grail of each area. I do not take any credit for developing these specific moves. They are fairly intuitive once you start trying them, so you may even develop your own.
There's some really important tips at the end of this page too, so don't miss them!
IMPORTANT TIP: Want to see actual results? Do it until you feel the muscle (this is explained below).
This is Asha Bachanni's cheek lift exercise, from Face Gym.
IMPORTANT NOTE: after the mouth is opened there is no longer any scrunching around the eye area. This is really important! A danger with some exercises is they can make areas worse if not done properly.
Use a mirror at least for the first few times to make sure everything is smooth.
This is a quick video from an astrologer (Karen Lustrup)! It is good because it is short - the exercise is explained in the first 1 minute - and it is very simple.
Again - be careful of the unnecessary scrunching that she appears to have, especially on the nose. Take your time with this - do it slow, and hold it until it aches (rather than the quick scrunch she demonstrates).
Your eyebrows will "stay up" instantly, and yes, if you do this consistently the area will continue to improve!
The best is always saved for last!
The "grandfather of exercise" Jack Lalanne was teaching face lift exercises way back in the days of black and white tv :) In this video he demonstrates two perfect moves for the jaw and mouth (nasal labial folds).
Note how he mentions "don't stretch your muscles or your skin" - your fingers are there for resistance, let the muscles do the work. You should definitely feel these ones!
