Facial Exercise Regimens: Investigating The Myths About Face Exercises

Author : Tamsin Hoffman


There are quite a few myths about facial exercises that eliminate the opportunity of many men and women harnessing this holistic tool to look younger, or even transform their face to its earlier glory. Let's look at some of these myths!

For those who are not sure what yoga facial exercises are, they are usually techniques carried out on various parts of the face and neck to firm sagging face skin, remove hog jowls and double chin, revitalize skin color, tighten turkey neck, and smooth out face and eye wrinkles. Some face exercise programs involve isometric principles, and some employ massage techniques involving the use of the fingertips.

Here are some interesting things to take note of as regards facial exercises:

Myth: You can alter the facial structure of the face with plastic surgery, but not with a facial exercise program.

Fact: To some degree, you can actually change your face structure using facelift exercises, just not as fast and as drastic as cosmetic surgery. If you focus on certain areas such as cheek exercises, the cheeks will fill out. If you do them on eye bags, these will lessen and your face form will alter towards a more youthful shape. On the other hand, facial yoga is not effectual for correcting birth defects or damage caused by an accident.

Myth: Surgically cutting away loose skin to firm turkey neck, lift sagging face skin and hanging jowls, and to solve a double chin problem is better than laboriously massaging these areas.

Fact: Surgical lifting of sagging skin is temporary. After a while, it will become baggy again, and you will have to repeat the surgery at more cost to you. Face and neck exercises will keep the skin firm and toned on an ongoing, yet non-invasive basis.

Myth: DIY Non-surgical facelifts are not as effective as plastic surgery procedures.

Fact: Cosmetic surgery is radical and interferes with the body's natural energy lines and nodal points. Facial exercises are gentle, non-invasive, and boost the energy and blood flow, as opposed to restricting it.

Myth: A facial exercise system has to be undertaken every day, and it's complicated to remember all the techniques and points, and is also time-consuming.

Fact: It's advisable to do facelift exercises daily for about twenty minutes. There are generally about twenty points to massage on the face and neck, so one minute on each point will suffice; usually they are situated on the same face and neck positions that acupuncturists use to treat certain ailments.

Myth: Facelift exercises are painful, or will damage the sinuses.

Fact: Face exercises must be applied with the fingertips firmly to very specific pressure points. Firm, but not too firm as to cause pain or discomfort. At first, you might experience some stuffiness for the first few days in your nose as you massage the sinus area, but that is perfectly natural, and this will dissipate quickly.

Myth: Facial yoga, or exercises don't produce better results than creams, lotions, Botox, thermage, laser treatments as an anti-aging skin care routine to smooth out eye wrinkles(crow's feet), laugh and forehead lines.

Fact: Lotions and creams are great for anti-aging skin care in the long term, and I advise people to use this when performing yoga facial exercises to work in the cream simultaneously. Botox and other artificial methods are quick fixes and can even be harmful to you. But facial yoga can easily turn back the clock holistically, not just be used to slow down the effects of aging.

Before spending significant amounts of money and risking your looks to a surgeon, try a facial exercise program. They are very cost-effective, and a powerful tool to regain your youthful looks in a couple of weeks!
