I’m here to tell you that doing facial exercises will not damage your skin, face or is counter productive to facial jowls. According to Frederick Rossiter, M.D. – a medical doctor and past professor of anatomy and physiology at a university that teaches medical doctors – the muscles located in your face are organized a wee bit different compared to that of the rest of your body.
The majority of muscles in your body attach bone to bone. They actually slide under the fascia. It is a little different when we talk about the face. The muscles first attach to the bone and then directly to the skin or a different muscle through the fascia. This means that the muscle is first, then the fascia, then the layers of skin where the fibers finish. This is the only reason why we can show facial expressions.
Sorry if I haven’t explained, but the fascia is a lace like structure that we have throughout our entire body. Within the lace like pockets we have a nice dose of fat deposits. Now don’t be alarmed they are not really bad, in this case at least. These deposits are called subcutaneous fat in the face. As we grow older the deposits decrease, eventually resulting in the infamous facial sag.
The more we exercise our face, we build muscle fibers actually mirroring the fat deposits. This results in that wonderful firm youthful glow that we long. Oxygen is absorbed just about 10 times more with contracted active muscles, giving the added moister and elasticity which also contributes to the look of youth.
.Exercising more and more simply pumps fluid back into the fascia resulting in a more supple and elastic voluptuous look. Your skin literally lifts up as your muscles work and tone in this firming process. As long as the muscle is contracted before you actually brush against the skin, you will avoid stretching and any other harm. You can get rid of any unwanted facial sags as well. The facial jowls can be unsettling, but we are here to help you tone up, feel and look younger than ever before. No more bad mornings in the mirror, take charge.
