I’ve been a fan of Anti-Aging Facial Exercises as long as I’ve been blogging – in fact, it was one of the topics I first posted about – back in 2009! Rather than using fillers to plump up your face, Facial Exercise helps build muscle to keep skin looking youthful and taut (read more about it here).
I was chatting with Elaine and she mentioned that her friend Marnie of Pelle Beauty uses Facial Exercises and has the MOST beautiful skin. I immediately asked for an introduction so that I could learn Marnie’s beauty secrets – and share them with my readers too!
Here’s why you’ll want to read the rest of this post – check out what 5 years of facial exercise has done for Marnie – she does NOT look 44!
What facial exercise technique do you follow (I’ve heard of Carole Maggio/Facercise and of Flex Effect, I personally follow Ageless If You Dare)?
I use the Carole Maggio version of Facercise. It’s the only one I’ve used. I got her book on Amazon and then later on her DVD.
At what age did you start facial exercise? What results have you noticed?
I believe I started Facercise back when I was 39. I just recently turned 44 so that would be about 5 years. Time flies. When I started doing the facial exercises I was happy with how my skin looked so I was aiming for “maintenance”, but as time went on, I noticed how toned my face looks, and that I have fuller lips due to the lip exercise. These exercises are great because it allows you to age very nicely. When the muscles under your face are toned, the skin doesn’t sag.
How often do you use Facial exercise – how long does it take daily/weekly?
The instructions say to use the exercise twice a day, but after a year of doing that I changed it to once a day. I do them at night right after I remove my makeup. I’ll put on my facial oil, massage it in very well and then do the exercises. These exercises are also great as they act as a face massage.
What are your other anti-aging tips/favorite products.
That is easy…Pelle Beauty :)))) I use all of my skincare products. They work well with this program. I couldn’t live without the facial oil blends. They are so important for healthy skin. I also highly recommend an overall healthy diet. Your diet does greatly impact your skin too.
With beauty and skin health its a complete package. A healthy lifestyle greatly enhances your skin.
Thank you Marnie for sharing your beauty secrets! I’m going to purchase the Facercise book immediately – the lip exercise sounds amazing. This has motivated to be more regular with my Facial Exercise program – it DEFINITELY
