Does Your Exercise Routine Include Your Face?

EXERCISE has become the formula for a longer live. A healthier life. A happier life. An active life – and all of it is true. But is there ever any mention of exercising your face? After all it has 42 muscles. So why has this part of our body been left behind?

Fortunately not by all people;  speaking from experience – by doing facial exercises for many years I can assure it works. But if I skip a day or two I can see the difference.  My skin is not as tight and my eyelids hang over a little more. A reminder to get back to my routine – and what is that routine?

Many years ago I came across an article about Carol Maggio who had developed a set of exercises for the face. First I hesitated, but since I always give everything the benefit of the doubt – I ordered the video and started doing the exercises – and never looked back.

Product Details

The set of 14 exercises takes 11 minutes – I especially like the natural way of improving my skin – no gimmicks!

It is quite amazing that magazines, TV programs, personal health gurus all emphasize exercise for the body, but seldom do we hear that the face should be included – well, maybe you want to look into it – you  will be surprised to see that not only your waist can slim down through exercise, but your checks too can lift up again when exercising your facial muscles.


P.S. The book and DVD are available on amazon.com – and if you need more encouragement read some of the reviews!

Tip of the Day – Re Exercise

Exercise can do more than just keep us in shape or make us lose a few pounds. It can enrich our life by making new friends.

If you dislike exercising as much as I do and it takes a great effort to do it, here is a thought – join an exercise class. No, I don’t mean a gym, but a class where you exercise with an instructor. There are many pluses, here are a few:

  • it will force you to go because you made a commitment
  • it will remove the excuses of not doing it today
  • it will make exercising fun
  • it will bring you in contact with others
  • it will help you to make friends
  • it will get you out of the house
  • it is something to look forward to

………..and when all is said and done you will feel and look better because you are in better shape and have some new friends you share something with.

It really helped me to overcome my dislike for being on a treadmill or in a gym doing my exercise alone. Anything shared in life is better than doing it alone – and I found out it includes exercise.
