Having smooth and firm skin around your lips, cheeks and chin will greatly help in making you look years younger.
The lips and cheeks can be a problem area to treat, but facial exercises will go a long way to tighten and firm the facial muscles and get rid of hard lines around your lips and also firm-up slack cheeks.
Aged and neglected skin can be dramatically improved with facial exercises, but you also need to have a good skin care regimen to maintain your skin. For a superb range of facial skin care, please have a look at out Ageless range.
Some people report that minor spots or blemishes appear after starting facial exercises, and yes, it is normal.
The skin is once again stimulated to produce its natural oils and lubricants and these minor spots may appear when starting facial exercises.
When the skin is functioning efficiently and correctly again these spots will disappear. The skin gets lazy and stagnate, but with proper exercises these cells are once again activated to work with renewed vigor.
