My aim for this month is to reintroduce exercising my face. I do massage every single day, twice a day. I took some pictures of my profile not so long ago and did not like how my jowls show up. I need to work on this.

Keep your EYE ON THE BALL. What is the goal?Will this action get you closer?
slowly but surely.

BEFORE YOU START EXERCISING, IT IS BEST TO LUBRICATE YOUR FACE WITH CREAM, YOUR FAVORITE OIL OR WITH WATER (this is optional but the skin does stretch a bit more when doing the exercises).

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.

EXERCISES:

Do any of the exercises on this link. They're all great!

After doing these, massage your face and neck with upward strokes or do the following

Google 'Facial Massage' and you will find several.

First and foremost!



PLEASE PASS YOUR COMMENTS (CHATS, QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, ETC.) ON THE FOLLOWING LINK:

Here's the January 2018 challenge thread. Check online for Facial Exercises (by googling) or check thread below, and you will see a whole wad of them for you to choose from. Please do your exercises for a minimum of 5 days a week. Do choose the days that best suit you. If you can do them every day, your face will thank you for that!

By the way, I recommend that you take a close-up picture of yourself without makeup before you start this challenge. After one month of 'diligent' and regular exercising, take another close-up picture and see if this has helped. In September 2015 (my birthday) my husband took pictures of me when I was doing my exercises. Then in December of the same year, he took some more of me and I was definitely disappointed because I had NOT been doing the exercises for a while, my face looked haggard and tired. My youngest daughter even looked concerned recently as she was saying that my wrinkles were showing up again. I HAVE been negligent doing the exercises recently... Exercising the facial muscles is truly the key to a more youthful look.

Please note that I've inserted information on how to go to a Facial Massage Program at the end of the exercises. You may want to do your facial exercises on one day and then massage the next. It's up to you! Take as long as you want for the exercises. Isn't your face worth it! emoticon

COPY AND PASTE THE DATES BELOW ONTO A REPLY. Come back to your original reply and edit there. One post per individual.

Simply type in an X on the days on which you have done your exercises.
