Diet and exercise are always the answer to a more elastic life
I amused by stories about keeping up appearances. Half the time in the past, I felt like keeling over, but I pushed on. Then, my doctor said, “You are a dead man walking.” Whoa.
Well seven years later, I can report that I shed many pounds and removed some bad parts and toned up.
Unlike many women with plastic surgery whose heads don’t match their bodies, my head is OK, but my body doesn’t match. Now, I have belly wrinkles as skin appears where it was once supported by fat. Just disgusting, you won’t see me hanging around the pool.
“Anti-Ageing Exercises For Your Face Shape
How do you think your face will look 10 years from now?
Lifestyle choices such as the amount we drink, smoke or sit in the sun will inevitably have an impact on the outcome - and thankfully we have the power to control those factors.
But what about our genetic predisposition to ageing? According to scientists, one genetic indicator is the shape of your face. Whether yours is round, heart-shaped, oval or square, research suggests that your face shape affects the way your complexion changes with age.
Those with round faces, like Kate Winslett, for instance, are more likely to lose the plumpness in their cheeks while those with square jawlines like Michelle Williams are prone to sagging jowls.
But while no amount of cosmetic surgery can affect the bone structure you were born with, it is possible to target your 'weak spots' by doing regular facial exercises to tone your muscles.
Identify your face shape below to find out which exercises will help to prevent the signs of ageing.
Tone up sagging jowls: Sit or stand upright and tilt your head backwards. Keeping lips apart, move your tongue out and try to touch its tip to the chin. Keeping the tongue extended out, hold the position for 5 seconds. Now, move it back inside your mouth and bring your head to its original position.
Tighten muscles around neck and chin: Lie flat on your back on a bed. Let your head hang off the edge of this bed. Now, slowly raise your head and bring it towards the chest. Hold this position for five seconds then get back slowly to the original position.”
