Facial Exercises For Slimming Your Face
Before you start, make sure that you apply a small amount of moisturiser to your face. Also rub some into your finger tips too. This will stop you tearing or pulling the skin!!
THE EYE OPENER
WHAT IT CLAIMS TO DO: Tones the upper and lower eyelids and reduces under-eye puffiness, making your eyes appear larger, younger and more alert.
METHOD: Place your index fingers together between your brows, then wrap your thumbs lightly around the outer-eye corners, as if you have a pair of sunglasses around your eyes. Squeeze your eyes tightly shut while pulling your two index fingers up slightly between your brows and pulling your thumbs out towards the top of your ears as you do so. Keep your eyes tightly shut — and keep pulling up and out with your fingers so the muscles around your eyes are working continuously against the pressure from your fingers for a count of 40 seconds.
WHAT IT CLAIMS TO DO: Raises the brow and diminishes hooding of the upper eyelids. Also smoothes out vertical lines between the brows and furrows across the forehead.
METHOD: Spread your fingers across the centre of your forehead. Now pull your fingertips down against your brows as you push your eyebrows up, creating a tension in your forehead muscles. Keep your eyebrows pushed up and fingers pulling down for the count of 30 seconds. Do the Furrow Smoother twice daily. For heavy lines, repeat three times a day. I also suggest sleeping at night with surgical tape over the forehead lines — this allows the muscles to relax while dreaming, and you will quickly see softened lines when you wake up.
LOWER EYELID LIFTER
WHAT IT CLAIMS TO DO: Firms the eye muscles to diminish dark circles and reduce under-eye puffiness.
METHOD: You can do this exercise sitting up or lying down. Place your index fingers lightly at your outer eye corners — where you can still feel the lower lashes. Now make a strong squint up with your lower eyelids. You should be able to feel the outer eye muscles pulse. Look up to the ceiling. Push your face forward and your shoulders back for resistance — you can push your feet into the floor for added resistance. Hold this squint for a count of 40 seconds. Perform the Lower Eyelid Lifter twice a day. However, if you have excessive under-eye puffiness, repeat this exercise three times.
