A skin toner is an exercising device for the face and neck that is said to improve muscle tone and, thus, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and firm sagging skin.
These various devices like the jawzercise, face trainers, facial fitness bands, flexers, and facial muscle trainers- (just to name a few) -work to strengthen and improve muscle tone with a series of face exercises.
There are two completely opposing points of views regarding the benefits of facial exercise neither of which has been supported by independent scientific study.
What experts do agree on is that facial massage can yield a variety of benefits. The idea is that face massage improves skin suppleness because it reduces and releases muscle tension in the face and jaw.
For example, a gentle massage using your fingertips in an upwards, sweeping motion from the center of the chin outwards to the temples is one technique. Combining a gentle facial massage with your favorite skin care routine will amplify the benefits.
There are many other skin toner options besides a face exercises device that have clinical evidence to back-up the benefits of firming sagging skin and reducing wrinkles ranging from the simple derma roller to galvanic microcurrent stimulation spa treatments and home LED laser treatments.
Using a clinically proven spa device along with an anti-aging treatment with active ingredients targeted to firm and tone skin significantly enhances results. Products that are formulated with actives include Vitamins A & C, DMAE, hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl among others.
