- Posted on: Jan 22 2013
The notion that smiling utilizes fewer face muscles than frowning has been a long-standing one. Scientists have recently proven the age-old idea to be true. People who spend more time smiling than frowning develop fewer facial wrinkles than people who stress and frown more often. Smiling more often also helps reduce stress levels and maintain a healthy heart. The increasing demand for people who desire younger looking skin has lead many aesthetic professionals and companies to lead classes on how to smile.
By employing a variety of facial exercises and the facial skin is able to retain more of its elasticity, which can stave off the premature formation of wrinkles and deep lines. Skin is composed of collagen and elastin fibers that benefit greatly from exercise and stretching. The area around the mouth and eyes is especially prone to sagging and wrinkling.
Smiling often helps to prevent wrinkles and sagging by training the muscles around the lips, mouth and cheek area. It is recommended that a person use their thumb and forefinger to gently raise the corners of their mouth and eye area for a few seconds, a few times a day to fight the effects of aging. A ten second rest time she be allowed between each lifting repetition. The supplemental use of anti-aging creams and lotions can also be used in conjunction with the exercises for the best possible prevention results.
Other facial exercises include gently pushing air into your cheeks and holding the position for a few seconds. There are also benefits to sticking out your tongue, which helps to strengthen the chin muscles and prevent sagging and wrinkling in this area. Those hoping to ward of signs of aging should also invest time into maintaining a healthy diet complete with plenty of fresh drinking water. Your skin will be healthier and appear more youthful when it’s properly nourished and hydrated.
