Hi everyone!

I was just thinking about starting facial exercises a few days ago and then I just now found your team. So I'm looking forward to learning a lot about it. I'll be back soon to look around and see how to start.

Have a great week!

Hello Lise and team members. My name is Diana and I'm pleased to find this team. There are so many great resources and links here!

I'm on a mission to lose 10lbs to improve my health and am aware that weight loss around the face and jawline at my age may not look the best. I'm working to tone my body and facial exercises strike me as being a sensible inclusion in my plan.

Many (Many!) years ago, I was at a Health Show where a demonstration of facial exercise was given by a lady called Eva Fraser (I think). She was older than I am now and looked remarkable. Anyhow - I shall read up and watch some of the very useful demos here and make a start tomorrow.

Watch this face!

I am a newbie to SparkPeople and this group. I remember doing facial exercises several years ago and got away from it. I am excited to learn new things.

Every day may not be good but there is something GOOD in every day!

Hi! Welcome to the group. It's easy to forget to exercise our faces with everything else going on but it's worth it in the long run to set aside a little time for working those muscles. I know you'll be glad you did.

Although I have put the challenges up, this does not mean that I was doing them. Since I was in Canada in September, I really have not done any and my face looks it too!!!

This month, I have begun the exercises again and my facial muscles are complaining. Yes, they are stretching so you see, these exercises DO WORK!

Hi, I've been on SparkPeople since March, but just found your team. I used to do face exercises when I was younger, but had gotten away from them. A couple of years ago I was on high dose corticosteroid for a couple of months and my face has been pretty saggy ever since the steroid "moon face" swelling finally went down which added to the feeling I been having that my good years are behind me and I just have to accept it. Then out of the blue about a month ago it just struck me that face exercises might help. I've been doing the ones I remember and some from YouTube and can see a difference already, so finding this team was a great piece of luck. I'm look forward to working out with you all. :-) 

Hi everyone! I've been lurking around for a little while and thought it was about time I posted something. I've been doing facial exercises for a couple of years because I suffer from dark under-eye circles, and I'm developing a few chins now I'm older! I'm just starting the 28 day neck and jawline challenge on the face yoga method website, which is a fab site that I wouldn't have found without your group. Thanks emoticon

Hi everyone,

My name is Sandra and I have been with spark people for 1 year and have lost and put weight back on, but also during that time I have acquired knowledge which I intend to build onto this year. I remember what a leader from WW said to us years ago, women tend to lose weight from the top down and men from the waist first.

Since I am female and more likely to lose it from the top down, then where better to start re extra attention to my appearance. Hair reasonably under control, face next, so here I am.

So my question is - where does one start with this team emoticon

Looking forward to getting to know you all

Hi! I just joined after seeing this team on GZELLEFRO's spark page. I haven't done these exercises before. I'm told that I look young for my age, I think it's due to my diet and attitude. Still, I am beginning to get lines in my forehead and next to my mouth.

I look forward to trying these exercises and I look forward to getting to know you.

HELLO! I've been hiding for a while :( I started a second job, daughter started a job and went back to school. I needed a little while to figure out a schedule that incorporated good eating and work outs! I think I have it. I hope things are going well for you. I plan to check in more often with my SparkFriends and SparkTeams. I miss y'all!

Have a Spark-a-licious Spark-tastic Spark-y Spark-ful day!

I believe in you.

Hello, so happy to have happened on this team. I've been doing facial exercises for decades, off and on. I can't say that I have no aging in my face (definitely I do) but I do think the exercises have helped in that regard, plus they are refreshing and I really love the routines I've done through the years. I almost never talk about it anymore as not many people I know do this anymore. It has been around for a long time.

I'm Ananda (yes, with N) from Brazil, I'm 29 and I find facial exercising the cheapest and most effective way to look young. I'm turning 30 in less than a month so I'm gonna start this routine for preventative purposes. My dermatologist highly recommended them so why not?! I'm glad I found this team for info and support emoticon

Dear Barbara.

I laughed about life 'etchings' as you said so correctly. Yes, the years do their fair share on our faces but we CAN modify some of these by doing the facial exercises. We cannot eliminate all of it but they sure can help if we do them consistently. You just need to google 'facial exercises' and you will come up with people like Carole Maggio, Eva Fraser, etc. You will see what their faces look like. Totally amazing! Therefore, why should it not work on us?

Like you, I don't want plastic surgery on my face. The last time I was with my daughter, she wanted to take me to a plastic surgery place to see how much it would cost to have some parts of my face done. I took my daughter (who is 5'9") by the shoulders (by the way, I'm 5'1") and told her that "NEVER, EVER, will I do plastic surgery. The only way I was to improve my face was with Facial Exercises." She just shrugged and smiled and said "That's my mother!"

We do have a weekly challenge which will take about 5 to 7 minutes of your time. I try to do these about twice daily but for a minimum of 5 days a week.

You can do this! emoticon

Hello !!!

I am 63 years old and am really noticing life's "etchings" are taking a toll on my face. I am extremely active having been a competitive athlete for many years in sports like, triathlon, road running and trail running. I now have added hiking and snowshoe racing into my regime I am 5 foot 3 inches and weigh about 110 lbs so losing weight has not been an issue for me. I also have had Parkinson's Disease for 13 years but thank the Lord I have not required medication for it. The doctors are saying that the exercise regime that I am on has probably slowed down the progression of it. All this being said, I sure would like to find a way to add facial exercising to my daily routine. I look forward to learning more about what facial exercises really work and getting to know more of you who have issues with life8s etchings and don't want to go the facelift or botox way of dealing with it. Thanks again, Barbara

We sure are glad you have found us. A lot of our members are seeing a difference in their faces and neck. It just makes sense! If you can exercise your body and firm up, why not do it with your facial muscles. When I had first joined Spark People, I had questioned them about the facial exercises but never did get a response, so in February 2011, I started this team. The wonderful members seem happy with them. Do check out our weekly challenge on Sunday! emoticon

Hello Marilyn. Welcome to our team! I do hope that you have joined the weekly challenge as it will introduce you to a variety of facial exercises.

P.S. I am originally from Ottawa and love that city. I still have a sister who resides there so when I do come and visit, I usually come over for about one week to visit my sibling and husband.

Hi! My name is Marilyn and I live in Ottawa, Canada.

I remember my grandmother always doing facial exercises, and I really think it's time I started doing them too.

Hi! My name is Linda and I am 59 years old. I have a problem with my neck (or necks)! I have always had a "thick" neck or pretty much no neck. Now that I have lost quite a bit of weight, my neck is coming out, but I have what looks like a turkey wattle developing in the middle under my chin. I know this is basically loose skin and I am not sure how much I can do to improve that type of problem, but I am willing to give it a try. I printed out the last challenge and will start this evening.

Hi everyone. My name is Laurie. I had a terrible, abusive, brain-washing marriage, and it seems that the last five years aged me incredibly. There was such a shocking difference from then to now, and if these exercises can help in any way, I will be so thrilled. I am not expecting any miracles, but I will be faithful in participating and doing the exercises.

Hello there. I am a 61 year old nan of 2 who lives in Tasmania, Australia. A friend sent me a YouTube video of a 93 year old woman who does facial exercises and I was very impressed so I looked up this team and have printed out all the exercises, thank you Lise, and will start from tomorrow. I am really looking forward to beginning these facial exercises.

Hi there! Well I have been trying these exercises for about a month or so off and on and wow! They work so well! I am 44 and noticed that my eyelids were drooping and I was getting jowls. When I do them consistantly I look so much younger! I love these. And I love how my kids laugh when I do them as well, so we all benefit from these exercises!! emoticon

Hello everyone.

Happy fantastic, fun Friday!! Yes, I am new to this team. Today while checking out the different teams I found this team. My goal is to firm up my sagging facial muscles. My age and how I look is a biggie to me. Because I am in my 60's and I have a 10 year old daughter who consistently tells me I look OLD!!!
