Natural face-lifts are a slower way to lift the facial and neck skin to make it appear younger. It doesn’t give you results as soon as the cosmetic face-lift or cosmetic surgery does. But it has lasting results, no pain and no side effects. Most women pay heavy money and bear lots of pain to get their youthful facial skin back and they are ready to do anything for it. So natural face-lifts are quite good options for them.
As everybody knows that skin starts producing less moister or natural oils so the skin starts getting loose, saggy, full of fine lines and wrinkles as the age grows. To some extent it depends on a person’s life style also. If you have an unhealthy lifestyle, you don’t eat and sleep on time, drink alcohol, do smoke and the consumption of tea or coffee is high then definitely you are going to loose the elasticity of your skin much before you age.
To keep the skin younger and healthy you need to live a healthy life style, keep away from all such habits of drinking and smoking, drink lots of fluids at least 2 liters of water a day is must to keep the body hydrate, sleep well and work out regularly. It makes lots of difference to one’s body and skin.
But once you have already lost the toned skin and starts loosing the elasticity, natural face-lifts are not bad options. Even if they fulfill half of what these products promise you, you can be thankful to the company because beauty once lost cannot be regained. And if you get it back without any knife and stitches put on your skin, there is nothing like that.

Usage of skin toners, face packs to tighten the skin and anti aging creams and lotions, which contain some anti aging substances such as collagen, make the skin appear tighter and brighter.
These collagen and cellulite containing products are available in forms of creams, lotions, injections and capsules.
An anti aging facial too is not a bad option as the massage and tightening packs reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
There is on more chemical found in the body, which helps to keep the skin young, and the elasticity intact is Hyaluronic acid. It’s a natural substance found in our body in sufficient amount when we are born. But it decreases with age so does the elasticity of the skin. This substance keeps the skin tight, toned, young, and moist and wrinkle free. With age when the production of HA decreases in the body, it starts loosing its youthfulness. This is the substance which helps the skin in healing the wounds, cuts, burns, bruises and burns. It keeps the muscles and joints lubricated to function effectively. Now anti aging products containing Hyaluronic acid are hitting the markets in two forms, to be applied externally as creams and lotions or internally as pop up pills. Which has to be taken as a health supplement in your daily diet to provide moister to the inner layer of your skin.
It penetrates the skin deeply till the deeper layer the way no other skin food or cream does and reduces the age signs as saggy skin and wrinkles.
Besides trying all these things, one of the best way is to keeping your body hydrate by drinking sufficient amount of fluids to retain the natural moister and consume good healthy food containing dairy products such as milk and curd, vitamin E rich diet, carbohydrates and green veggies to keep your skin and body fit.
|Place your open hand at the base of your throat, stretched across your collarbone. Holding your hand down, extend your neck up, leading with your chin and stretch with your bottom jaw, only, towards the ceiling. Do NOT swallow, but rather reach with your bottom lip towards the ceiling “looking” like a gulping fish. Make 10 “gulps”. Do 5 sets, changing hands for each round.|
One area of concern to many of us is the improvement of our necks. We either have rings around our necks, parchment-like skin, hanging skin, including the dreaded “turkey flap” or our necks just look “old”. Sometimes we feel our necks are too thick and others of us feel our necks are too thin.
It’s the Combination of Exercises that Gives You the Results You Want
Carolyn’s Facial Fitness™ has worked hard to offer a combination of exercises that address all of these issues. When I was designing CFF™, I noticed that many of the facial exercise programs on the market did not address the neck or the décolleté.
First of all, when I first started facial exercises, I had recently lost about 50 pounds. Not only was the skin hanging on my neck from the recent weight loss, I also had rings that had formed. As you can see in this neck exercise I offer here, I do not have even one line left and the skin in this whole area is smooth and firm. I’m 62 years old in this photo.
Build the Muscles Properly for a Good Effect
In order to lift up the jaw line or even the hooded eyelids, my research indicated that I had to build the muscles in the front of the neck. Now, many of the facial exercise programs offered to do this, but at the expense of making the neck look too big and bulky. In the CFF™ program we devised a way to build the muscles in the front of the neck while giving the neck a trim and well-proportioned look. Not too bulky and not too thin. It’s the combination of exercises that target this area perfectly.
Next, my concern was the lines and loose skin around my neck. While the skin did start to firm up with the toned muscles, the lines were still there. I was able to literally rub out these lines with the combination of exercises in the main DVD program along with the 3-step Wrinkle Release Technique, also part of the CFF™ system. It all worked! Take a look at Robert, too. He was also very successful in firming up and smoothing out his neck.
Gulping Fish Neck Exercise
Here is a great neck exercise you can try out and see for yourself how well it works over the next few weeks at eliminating lines and firming the skin! It helps to alleviate the deep rings that form around the neck as well as firm up the two long muscles that radiate from under the lips down to the top of the collarbone. A kind of “cording” can occur on the neck as we age and this exercise will both correct and prevent this from happening.
To see a facial exercise video clip of another exercise for the neck, go to “The Brush”. It is designed to firm the double chin and jawline, while erasing lines and minimizing cording in the neck, as well.
Facial exercises are not a quick fix. They do require some maintenance. But, hey! 15 minutes a day, 3 to 5 days a week is a small price to pay for having more beautiful skin, less wrinkles, a firmer, more youthful-looking face and neck that keeps on getting better over time. Facial exercises help you to age gracefully and elegantly.
