Do you want to learn how to easily have younger looking skin without having a bunch of needles stuck into your face?
Aging just isn't what it used to be; now there is a plethora of anti-aging products for every price range that make lots of promises; some accurate, others not so much.
Though, of course, no one wants to watch their skin slowly decline into a mottled, spotted, sagging, wrinkly aged, deteriorated mess.
Do you actually need a needle in your face to have younger looking skin?
Yes, having injections to make you skin look younger rather than having a full-blown surgical procedure is considered non-surgical by some.
There are many, many doctors and other practitioners who want consumers to believe that little doses of cadaver material or botulism injected in the forehead, the outer eye area and around the mouth, is not invasive but let's tell it like it is.
On a recent network morning show, two women, moms in their 40's, were willing to undergo "non-invasive procedures" to make their skin look younger.
A Dermatologist took a black marker and began drawing on the women's faces to demonstrate how Botox and other material would be injected into certain areas to fill out and alleviate visible signs of aging.
What was so striking about the show was watching just how desperate these housewives have become to keep a youthful appearance.
These injections would have cost at least $1500 - $2000 for a complete procedure. The infections then have to be repeated at least twice during a one-year period of time if these women want to maintain younger, firmer, plumper looking skin.
Many believing that these procedures are the only avenue of attaining younger looking skin and preserving their looks. Unfortunately, the effects are time limited.
As a result, these types of cosmetic procedures are considered to be a repeat business since the effects of most cosmetical injections diminish in a relatively short amount of time and plastic surgery requires updating periodically depending on the type of procedure.
Thus, the money pit "TRAP"!
Needless to say, the quest for slowing down the aging process and achieving younger looking skin has become a multi-billion dollar business with millions of cosmetic procedures performed every year.
Anti-aging skin care strategies, techniques and treatments have become increasingly more sophisticated and effective.
Exercising your face will restore the tone and firmness that you thought may have been lost forever. There is no recovery time, no risks of any type and you won't end up with the face of a stranger. However, you will end up with younger, firmer looking skin.
Crow's feet are a major concern because eyes look tired when these pesky little lines are apparent. The reason they form is because the forehead muscle has elongated due to gravity and life; when this happens, the muscles surrounding the eyes become compressed by the gravitational weight on them.
Place the three middle fingers of each hand underneath each eyebrow. Push the eyebrows up and slightly outward. Hold your eyebrows high and begin to use your forehead muscle to push down into your fingertips. (Make certain you are not creating lines between your eyebrows; push outward towards the temple area after pushing up). Count slowly to five.
Next. . .
Remove your hands, take a deep breath, and again position your fingertips underneath your brows. Push the eyebrows up and slightly outward.
Hold them high and begin to use your forehead muscle to push down into your fingertips. Count to ten- at count 7, close your eyes. (This action forces oxygenated blood to the eye lids).
Remove your hands and repeat this two more times for a total of thirty-five seconds of exercise.
If this exercise is performed once a day for six days in a row, in less than three weeks, the eyebrows will have lifted and crow's feet will be much less noticeable.
No pain, no needles, no anesthesia, no risk and great results for those of you who want to look younger- at home and in hardly any time at all.
You can lift your entire face and neck with simple isometric/resistance exercises that require thirty-five seconds for each movement.
