When it comes to turning back the hands of time and finding ways to look younger, the internet is crawling with information. There are blogs, videos, online manuals and tutorials that claim to have the answer to the fountain of youth. Many people have spent hundreds and even thousands of dollars on products such as creams and serums that are supposed to provide results. Over the years I have tried a number of natural approaches and am always eager to share my findings especially when the results were good.
As I read a lot of articles, blog posts and reviews on what works best when a person wants to look younger naturally, many have made mention of face exercises. Growing up as a kid I remember seeing my mother make strange expressions while washing her face and at the time I wasn't sure what the heck she was doing. Now I know she was performing a well-known natural anti aging regimen that many use to this day.
A few years back I decided to incorporate vowel face exercises into my anti aging routine and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the results. Although there were not any dramatic changes in the way my face looked, I could definitely tell a difference after about a week. At the time I started, the only signs of aging that I had were a few lines around my mouth when I smile or laugh and slight sagging in my jowls. After about five days my laugh lines seemed to diminish and my jowls were lifted.
All I did was make the vowel sounds of a, e, i, o and u and exaggerated each vowel to the point where there was tightness in my face. In order to get the most out of these face exercises you need to hold each sound for five seconds without moving your forehead and eyes. Only your mouth should be moving. You can help hold your eyes and forehead in place by putting your hands on your temples and slightly pull back while making the sounds.
Go through the process of saying all the vowels a total of five times. Do these face exercises once a day and you should see results within a week or less. If you want to look younger without surgery or other medical procedures, this could be the way to go for you.
