Have you been wondering about the effectiveness of facial exercises and whether or not they can reverse the physical signs of aging?Perhaps youve even been exploring them as an alternative to cosmetic surgery to take away sagging jowls, a double chin, chubby cheeks or face fat in general.
Exercising the face has gotten a lot of attention in the last few years with all of the books, articles and discussions about what is sometimes called "face yoga", but its nothing new.
Jack Lalanne proposed that exercising your face can tighten the muscles, decrease fat deposits and make you age quite wonderfully.
As a result, many celebrities have been secretly using these techniques for decades, but perhaps there is some danger in using them after all.
Dr. Shultz claims that you can actually make yourself look older one day, because you only have so much elasticity in your facial skin, and by doing these exercises he believes that you can speed up the process of aging... going on to explain that there are only so many times that skin can be stretched before it will just quit returning to its original state.
On the other hand, Jack Lalanne, who passed away at the amazing age of 96 didnt look a day over 60 when he did.
Then there is Eva Fraser, founder of a facial exercising program that she developed for herself under the training of German Madame Hoffman.Eva began at age 50 and is now 80, but you would never know it when looking at pictures of her.
Some people have noticed that the biggest critics of face exercises are people in the plastic surgery and dermatology professions, which has led many to speculate that they are trying to turn business right back around and aim it at their own, expensive services.
Although plastic surgery can be an option for some people, many dont like the "plastic" look and fixed facial expression that has become so stereotypical with these procedures, and instead have turned to using face exercises to zap away facial fat and use as a skill in their arsenal of anti-aging weaponry.
There are well over 40 muscles in the human face, with many exercises that are designed to work each one independently of one another.Many of these facial exercises use resistance to build up and strengthen these muscles, as a result; tightening the skin that covers them and decreasing the amount of space that fat has the chance to reside within.
It is a known fact that the more muscle mass you have, and the more active that you are in training your muscles, the faster your body will burn fat.Why? because energy is needed to be devoted to improving these muscles, and as a result...your fat surplus is knocked down and converted into energy to feed your muscles.
