BEFORE YOU START EXERCISING, IT IS BEST TO LUBRICATE YOUR FACE WITH EITHER CREAM OR WATER (if you so wish, but the skin does stretch a bit more doing this).

Warmup:
Start by warming up the face gently tapping the cheeks and the rest of the face and neck with the flat of your hand. Go all over the face this way three times.

Next hold your ear lobes firmly between thumb and forefinger. Work you way up and around the edge of the ear rubbing your fingers back and forth, then work your way back to the bottom again. Do this 3 times. These points give an overall toning effect to the whole face. Your lips should be relaxed and gently together.

In a similar way to the ear exercise take the bulbous end of the nose and work between your thumb and forefinger (do this gently as this can be a very sensitive area). There are a lot of nerve endings here and this is the acupressure point to energize the face.

Your face should now be feeling warm and fairly relaxed but ready for exercise.

Neck and throat
Sit upright, tilt your head back looking at the ceiling, while keeping your lips closed and relaxed. Open your lips and stick your tongue out as it you were trying to touch your chin with the tip of your tongue. Keep your tongue out in this position for 10 counts, and then return your tongue and head to its normal position.

Lips
Place middle finger just above the middle of your top lip. Place index finger at one end and ring finger at the other end of your mouth holding lip in place. Now attempt to smile with your top lip. Hold for a count of 5, release and repeat.

Lips and general face (provided by MOTLEM)
Say: "EE (phonetically), then AR, Oh, AR" by really stretching the face. Do 20 times 3 times a day (you can do this while watching TV and doing the dishes).

Forehead
Frown as much as possible and try to bring your eyebrows over your eyes while pulling the eyebrows toward one another. Then lift your eyebrows as far as possible while opening your eyes as far as possible. Repeat 5 times.

Neck and throat
Place your hand at the base of your neck and hold. Tilt your head back 35 times while smiling strong (mouth closed). You will feel your neck and chin working.

After doing these, massage your face and neck with upward strokes.

Happy is the person who learns to wait as he prays and never loses his patience, for God's time is the best time.

Here are the May 2014 Facial Exercises. I'm really having a lot of issues with the connection these days, reason for which I am late for this challenge to all you wonderful people.

If you want to see quick changes in your face, endeavor to do these for a minimum of 5 days a week. Do choose the days that best suit you. If you can do these every day, your face will thank you that that! These will take from 7 to 10 minutes to complete, all depending on how much time you wish to spend. Isn't your face worth it! emoticon

If you do not like the exercises that I identified for this month, do check the exercises that I have on the link below:
