making old faces young. . .
the natural way

Article contributed by Author Ismael D. Tabije, fitness and beauty editor.


Making one's face look younger is everyone's dream. There are people who resort to different methods - even the most expensive ones - just so they'd get that "look young, feel young" vibe.

But for those of a different mind-set, invasive anti-aging treatments can sometimes be considered a vice.

Most of the time, you'd hear these people mutter, "Why would you interfere with nature's course?  Make the best of what you've got!"

But those who want to preserve the youth as they add up years would ask, "Why not age naturally with grace?"

Yes, why ever not?

You may think it is too late to do so especially if you had too much sun when you were younger.  Over exposure to the sun over the course of decades produces a wide range of aging skin symptoms including fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.

Most of the time, the reason why people acquire the old-age look (even before they get to that stage) is that the body has not been well taken care of.

The tell-tale signs of old age are the sunken hollows of the cheeks and around the eyes, sagging of the chin, wrinkles on the forehead, a "rumpled", overall haggard look.

But there is always hope!

It's never too late to take care of your health- whether you are in your 20's or your 60's.

A consistent dedication to a long-term massaging facial exercise routine can be an effective strategy in improving aging skin symptoms.

It's been proven that rejuvenation of the face through friction and massage are the best ways to look young and feel young. Realize that the main reason your facial muscles sag is lack of muscular and facial stimulation.

Like any other muscle of the body, constant facial exercise can make these facial muscles expand and develop, effectively removing the sagging look.  The process of massaging facial exercise will progressively restore the elasticity of your skin and smooths out the wrinkles.

How is applying massaging friction on the skin done?

With the help of a tiny bit of lotion to minimize irritation work start on the areas which normally result to sagging, such as the cheeks, the throat, the chin, the forehead and around the eyes.

  • Massage just like you are polishing a pair of shoes: with a slight, circular friction on the surface areas. 

  • Gradually increase the pressure but not too vigorously that you will end up abrading and irritating your face.

  • To exercise your facial muscles, use your palm heel. With enough pressure, massage your cheeks and other parts of the face in circular motion. Do this also on the chin and throat.  This facial exercise process will build up the muscles and fill those "hollows", those sunken areas around the eyes and the cheeks.

  • Make sure you apply equal amount of pressure to the entire face so that the build-up of muscles will be uniform. Do these facial exercises a few minutes every day- even while you are watching the TV and you will soon see a vast improvement in a younger looking you.

Stimulating the skin with massaging techniques increases blood flow and circulation improving the skin's ability to absorb beneficial nutrients from rejuvenation products.

Pro Tip:

You can use your favorite rejuvenating lotion, oil, serum, or cleansing balms with facial massages, or a spa facial devise such as a derma roller or a Gua Sha tool.

While using your fingers is more than effective, there are a slew of tools available to aid in facial massage.  Many of these skin care massage gadgets can actually be quite incredible at delivering results.


For example, Gua sha is an ancient Chinese natural healing technique. 

This alternative therapy that involves strategically scraping the skin with a massage tool to improve blood flow and circulation which works to lift, sculpt and tighten the skin while decongesting the skin and reducing inflammation.  The oxygenating effects aids in carrying nutrients to the skin cell, increasing product penetration. 

Carefully selected anti-aging skin care treatments and home spa treatments that are targeted to address your specific aging skin concerns can be a definite win-win proposition!

With determination, and these rejuvenation techniques, you can proactively prevent that "aged" look.
