Do you have concerns about your facial appearance?

Increasingly, in our youth-centric society, there is pressure on people to look younger, fitter and healthier.

With regard to this, perhaps the most visible aspect of our appearance is our face. To the world-out-there, the first thing they look at is our face.

Nowadays, many women and men have concerns about their facial look, and what others think of it. For many, these worries can be deep-seated and even affect their confidence and how they act and behave in public.

It may be that you have unsightly wrinkles and lines, especially around the eyes and mouth. These ‘laughter lines’ can often start to go deep and make you look very much older.

Perhaps your concern is loose skin and bags, underneath your eyes. These can be especially ‘ageing’ in effect. Many recoil in horror when they look in the bathroom mirror, on arising in the morning, to be faced with the full broad-daylight horror these.

Many suffer from a double chin and fat around their neck. This is common nowadays, with the increasingly unhealthy diet and sedate lifestyle we live.

Whatever the problem, many of us hope that good quality facial creams will help solve the problem. They may help, a little, but they will not solve the real issues. This is because creams are put on the surface of the skin only, but the real facial worries relate to the connective tissue and muscles beneath it.

Facial exercises are required to strengthen and tone your facial appearance, and are necessary to make you look younger and fresher.

My clients often ask me about anti-aging creams.

As you will know, there are a lot on the market. I recently came across a blog at getadviced.com that tackles the subject of what to look for in an anti-aging cream.

The article states:

A wrinkle cream is not necessarily an anti aging cream. There are significant traits that qualify a cream as “anti aging” and it is a great deal much more than just removing wrinkles.

It goes on to describe the difference in creams, and what specifically you should look for:

When you are shopping for an anti aging wrinkle cream, be certain to examine its claims. You want to see that, in actuality, there is an ingredient in the cream that straight addresses the brightening of the colour of pores and skin, and exclusively, the reduction of age spots.

It must also be capable of tackling the redness of pores sometimes associated with aging.

Of course, a good cream is important in looking younger and fresher.

And, remember, it is vital to do good quality facial exercises in order to tighten the facial muscles and connective tissue to firm your face and neck also.
