Sun damage, aging, and environmental stress contributes to saggy, wrinkled skin. Although there is no beauty product on earth that can truly banish wrinkles and eliminate sagginess, these DIY treatments and facial exercises are sure to take years off your face:
Massaging the facial skin helps boost blood flow, slough off dead skin cells, and rejuvenate the skin. Regular facial massage is proven effective in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and skin sagginess.
To achieve younger looking skin, put your fingers on your forehead and start brushing the skin from the middle out towards the temple. Then, massage the cheeks in a gentle, outward motion. Press the palms over the eyes, and go back to massaging the forehead. Do this massage 3 to 5 times a day for best results.
Here’s a great trick to keep those cheeks sculpted, close your mouth gently and then pucker the lips as if you are giving a kiss. Pucker the lips as hard as you can until you feel the muscles in the mouth, cheek, and jaw area pulling. Hold this position for ten seconds, release and repeat 10 times.
Did you know that forehead wrinkles are some of the hardest wrinkles to smooth out without plastic surgery? The tension within the underlying muscle tissues causes unsightly lines on the forehead. And relaxing your face is not enough to avoid forehead wrinkles.
To smooth out forehead wrinkles, press your knuckles above the eyebrows for 5 to 10 seconds. Now, with your thumbs, rub the forehead gently in a circular motion. Use your fingertips to massage the forehead in an outward motion using light, gentle pressure.
