Do you look great for your age? Do you look 10 years younger than you are? Do people constantly guess your age incorrectly? Are they shocked to find out your real age? How many years younger than your real age do people say you look? How does it make you feel to look so young?
What are your secrets to looking young? Is it your exercise, diet, clothes, hair, make-up or attitude?
Oprah has asked her viewers the above questions and it is curious to note that most people when they look closely at themselves in the mirror do not look younger than they did ten years ago, especially if they are over the age of fifty.
Why? Sagging facial muscles make you look older. Those hidden muscles situated beneath the skin begin to elongate as one ages. When this happens, the elongating muscles drag down the features, making your face look square rather than oval and all of a sudden, it is apparent that you have lost your youthful visage.
Using hair color, adopting a youthful attitude, wearing hip clothes and maintaining a youthful figure are certainly successful anti-aging tools. No matter how cleverly one uses these ploys, you cannot disguise an aging face.
Makeup and creams, lotions and potions will certainly mask fine lines and wrinkles. Today's cosmeceutical advances promise younger, softer looking skin but they can do nothing to lift jowls, pouches, hooded eyes, and a double chin.
Oh yes, there are injections and surgeries available for those risk takers who care little about the possible catastrophic consequences such as staph infection, disappointing results or even death. The easy-breezy attitude of the medical profession mocks conventional wisdom that screams "This is dangerous stuff!"
That's right * surgery is dangerous and should be used as the very last option. And those injections that plump and paralyze? Well, consider this: Do you really know and understand what is being injected into your body? Are the long-term health risks worth repeating several times per year, year after year?
Injections and surgeries are temporary at best because aging continues to affect the downward slide of the muscles.
Over the past few years a social stigma has arisen around aging. No longer is it acceptable to gracefully accept the lines, wrinkles, sags and bags. Aging is not what it used to be and people want to fight the look of old. We feel young on the inside and we want our faces and bodies to match. The new mantra is: Let's resist aging every step of the way!"
Does this mean that we all must meekly submit to injections and surgery? Can we turn back the hands of time without resorting to risk and the loss of our nest egg? Yes, we can and here is how: Specialized facial exercises will keep you looking younger than your years.
Consider this: most facial plastic surgeons tell their clients that a face lift will result in a reduction of five to ten years off one's appearance. Now this sounds enticing and easy, doesn't it? But, it's not. A surgical procedure takes months and months to heal. And, once you have allowed cutting on your face, you never, ever look like you. You have been forever altered.
Sometimes the results are startling and all you wanted was to look refreshed.
A Do It Yourself Facelift makes perfect sense. Not only is the process easy and reliable, there is no down time, no cutting, no drugs or ivs and most of all, no surprises. Risking your life and your beauty for the sake of looking younger is insane.
Facial exercise will help you rediscover the face you thought you had lost forever. This all natural process uses contraction and resistance of the muscles so they shorten and plump up. The action of using your thumbs and fingers in white cotton gloves nourishes the face with increased oxygenated blood and because the muscles are attached directly to the skin, you look refreshed and younger using these specialized techniques just minutes a day.
The dedication to facial exercise will undo the look of aging and you can do it yourself without ever harming your beautiful face.
