Sugars has an effect on collagen. Sugar is an inflammatory type of food and it will cause problems in your skin. So you can see here how many different muscles that you have in your face, and it’s quite complex. Now, like any other muscle, muscles can become weak.
And when they become weak, they start to SAG, which affects wrinkles and other problems with collagen production. So when we strengthen these muscles, we are stimulating the brain as the brain sends messages back to the muscle so it can get stronger.
And as we continue to exercise these muscles, over time they start to become more tone and firmer, which is going to give you that smooth, wrinkle free look. So let’s start on the muscles in the forehead region.
To reduce these wrinkles, we’ll take our fingers, put it over our head like this, take our fifth finger, our pinky finger, and put it right above the eyebrow, right here. But I’d like you to get all the wrinkles out. So you need to push it in and down, okay, where all the wrinkles are out.
Now, what I want you to do is just take your eyebrows and you’re going to look up and down like this. As you keep pressure on your little fingers, you’re going to look up and down, up and down. So as I go up and down that’s one, you’re going to do 15 of those.
Within our eyeballs, we have many muscles, and those muscles move the eyeballs in different directions. But while the eyes are moving, the surrounding muscles will also come into play. So in order to exercise your eyes and those surrounding muscles, we’re going to look in all different planes, like left to right, up and down, diagonal from corner to corner this way.
And we look around like we’re going clockwise and we go counterclockwise. Now, when you do these exercises, I want you to open your eyes wide on some of them and close them on other ones, like this. And you’ll close it and you’ll start moving your eyes in all different planes.
You’ll do that for about a minute to a minute and a half, and you will feel a big difference within this region. Now, to work those muscles under the eyes for any sagging skin or crows feet, we’re going to keep our face still, our eyes open, and we’re going to gently try to focus. Even if you have to look into a mirror where you’re just going to raise the lower lid upwards like this.
Come back down. It’s a real subtle movement. If you put your fingers right here, lightly, you should feel the lower part of your lid coming up and going down just like this. And they’re real small muscles and you’ll do 15 repetitions of those. Now, we’ll strengthen the muscles within our cheeks to help reduce these wrinkles.
And what we’ll do is we’ll keep our mouth closed and we’ll blow ear from side to side. So as we blow it to the left and go to the right, that would be one time we’ll do 15 of those. This is what it’s going to look like. You’ll definitely feel changes.
There two simple exercises to help those wrinkles around the lips. These will strengthen those muscles. One is just a kiss, like this, and the other is making a big o, but sealing your lips like this. You’ll do 15 of those exercises of both of them, and you should see some great changes within the facial structure going down around the mandible, the jaw.
We have the masters, as well as other small muscles. So what we’re going to do is we’re just going to deviate our jaw to one side as we put resistance, and then we’ll deviate the other side with resistance. This is what it’s going to look like. So if I go to the left, I’ll take my left hand, put it against the left side of the jaw, and as I deviate my jaw to the left, I’ll resist lightly with the other hand, like this.
Come back, come back. You’ll do twelve of them on that side. Then you’ll do the opposite. Resist, come back, resist, come back. And you’ll feel those muscles really contract. And it feels quite nice. Now we’ll work under the jawline, under the chin and the upper neck area.
That gooseneck, that double chin. This is going to really make a big change. I’d like you to go ahead and take your tongue and push it up against your hard palate like this. And relax. Take your fingers underneath your chin and let’s do it again and relax. You’ll feel those muscles really contract. Do this often. This is a great exercise. And do about 15 or 20 of these.
Try it one more time. Take your tongue, push it up against your hard palate, and you’ll feel those muscles really contract. Now to work the complete area on both sides of the neck under the chin, you’re going to do the same exercise, bringing the tongue to the hard palate.
But what you’ll do is that you’ll look to the left, you’ll look upwards a little bit and then bring your tongue to the hard palate. Go down, up again. Go down. You’ll go to the other side. Look up a little bit. Tongue to the hard palate. Down. One more time, down.
You’ll feel these muscles contract. You’ll do twelve of both sides. Now, after you complete all those exercises, starting from the forehead, working our eyes, our cheeks, our jaw, as well as underneath the jaw, I want you to take just a couple of these fingers, however you like to do it, and just start tapping and stimulating. And do that for a good 30 seconds to a minute.
This will really bring a lot of hyperemia, a lot of blood supply to the area. You’ll get a lot of stimulation back to the brain. This is excellent to help increase collagen production. And you’ll do that for about 30 seconds to a minute.
So after doing your tapping, there’s one thing that you don’t want to leave out. It’s rubbing your hands together real fast, building up heat within the palms of your hands and then applying it on all the different parts of your face, bringing lots of blood circulation.
That warmth is very, very soothing. It’s going to cause vasal dilation. Those vessels are going to open up. You’re going to increase blood supply, put it over your eyes and stimulate them again and go over your forehead. It’s real soothing, kicking your parasympathetic nervous system. It’s very relaxing. This helps build collagen because you’re bringing in more circulation.
That means more nutrition and just be creative. So start doing this technique daily and you will see great changes within the first couple of weeks. You’ll start within the forehead region, work our way down under the chin. We’ll tap along the different parts of the face.
Then we’ll stimulate with our hands the heat from our palms into the facial region. By increasing more blood supply, helping your skin in, preventing wrinkles, and keeping your facial region feeling healthy and beautiful. Please share this video with your friends and family.
