"Saggy muscles: the forgotten culprit"

When talking about ageing, people always mention the classic ennemies: sun, alcohol, tobacco, poor diet and genetics.

 

True, these all play a major role, but they mostly make the skin look dull and wrinkled. Have you noticed that some people have aged...yet they have no wrinkles or bad skin? Now, look at their features today and compare them to the way they looked ten years ago. Their jowls, their cheeks, their eyelids have in fact collapsed by a few milimeters, as the muscles, once upon a time nicely toned, have now shrivelled or have become lose. The puffiness that results is enough to make on look much older.

 

How can Facial Fitness restore your youthful looks?

Our approach is very similar to exercising in the gym in order to achieve a fit, toned body. 

There are around 60 muscles on the human face and neck, yet most of them we hardly use. With time they lose their strength, they shrivel and the skin attached to them starts sagging.

Facial Fitness Ireland will teach you how to 'work the muscle against resistance'; this is the key to muscle growth - the equivalent of weight training for the face. For a demo, see the sample exercise page.

When you work out regularly, the facial muscles develop. Unlike the rest of the body, the skin of the face is directy attached to the underlying muscle. This means that the more toned the muscle is, the tighter the skin is.


Facial fitness is about rebuilding these muscles in order to create a lift to the whole face and restore skin firmness. The muscle fiber hence created also fills out wrinkles and the face appears smoother.

By regularly doing facial exercises targeting individual muscles, or groups of muscles, most of the comon problems linked with ageing can be considerably alleviated.

Who can benefit from taking up Facial Fitness?



        There is no minimum age to start.

Taking it up early prevents the appearance of the first signs of ageing. People in the public eye (actors, singers, models...) may have a particular interest in maintaining youthful features.


         And it is never too late.

In your fifties, sixties, seventies or  even well above, you can still dramatically improve your appearance and erase decades off your face!


          Men too!

The twenty first century man wants to look good and stay looking good for as long as possible. Going to the gym helps keep your body fit, but it is your face that people see everyday at work and in social situations. Facial fitness is a great way for a man to retain or regain his youthful looks.


The extra benefits of Facial Fitness

Exercising increases blood circulation, which allows a better distribution of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. This has a great effect on your complexion. Soon after taking up the programme, you will glow!

Once you get familiar with the routine designed for you needs, you will find it quite addictive and relaxing, as occurs for other forms of exercise such as yoga.

Beside the incredible feel good factor of seeing yourself regaining those youthful looks, the comments about the way you look coming from friends and colleagues - who may not know what your secret is - will start pouring in after a few months, and your self-confidence will be immensely lifted.
