How to De-stress Your Face Using Simple Facial Exercises
Stress shows on faces. Sometimes it can look like a frown and sometimes stress makes us look tired, drawn, mad and upset. One thing for certain, when you allow stress to continually affect your face, you are destined for down-turned mouth corners and a perpetual scowl.
If you have been asked, "Are you mad at me?" or "Did I say something that upset you?" you know that your face is blatantly wearing your emotions because your smile has turned upside down.
You can easily remedy your facial appearance with facial exercise.
As you sit at your computer take notice of your face posture.
Are you allowing concentration furrows to develop between your eyebrows? Does your mouth feel slack? Do your eyebrows feel heavy?
Aging faces soften because the muscles require certain movements to keep them taut. Conversation, singing, and laughing can help release tension but unfortunately droopy features will begin to become apparent as you advance in years. Couple that with tension from life's stresses and all of a sudden your face can look misshapen.
The old adage, "your face will stay that way" can become true. How we mold and hold our faces over a span of years and years attributes to the look that causes us to despair.
There is no reason to feel hopeless about your face. We want to look our best and we want to feel sensational about ourselves but sometimes we let stress, lines and a sagging face destroy our confidence. All this can be remedied when you spend just a few minutes a day being proactive with simple exercise movements.
Working from the inside to out your face can change from old, matronly even elderly to look brighter, firmer and certainly less stressed.
How does this happen? Exercise produces oxygenated blood to the muscles, the tissues and skin. This fortifies your face with circulation that pumps up the muscles and revitalizes the shape and contour of your features.
In addition to frown lines between the brows, a deeply lined forehead, a down turned mouth and maybe grooves, pouches, folds or jowls, and sagging muscles, facial exercise helps every area of your face and neck.
Facial exercise can help change the way you think and feel about your appearance. Using a dynamic approach produces a certain satisfaction that you are the master of your fate (face) and that you need not spend large amounts of money or endure certain risks to improve your appearance.
Using your thumbs, fingers and white cotton gloves one can easily begin to turn back the look of an aging face. Putting forth the effort works from the inside out. Learning then using isometric techniques involves anchoring, tensing and releasing the facial muscles. This action creates increased circulation so that your muscles and skin benefit from the oxygenated blood.
The stress and tension you feel and see in your face may be a career liability. So why not begin a facial exercise routine as a career investment so that stress and tension are alleviated in an all natural way. This means your face will no longer appear rigid and stiff.
The process is easy, it takes only a few minutes and in just days, you will see how the stress that plagues your face melts away. You will look healthier, happier and even younger as you retrain those tiny muscles hidden beneath your skin.
