What Ages our Face the Most?

What Ages our Face the Most?

How often have you looked in the mirror and zeroed in with dread on that one wrinkle in the middle of your forehead, or the crow’s feet near your eyes, or a dark spot? What might be surprising, that is not what makes your face look older than it is.

What makes the face look older is SHAPES. As we age, if we are NOT taking steps to counter the aging process, the face begins to change shape. Just like our bodies change shape, if we are not eating healthy, working out, or in general taking care of ourselves, our face changes shape too.

The nasolabial folds begin to turn into folds, the skin on the cheeks begins to sag, the chin begins to widen from lymph that gets stuck in the face. This changes the face to a squarer appearance than the once refined inverted triangle.

The good news is… you can take steps to reverse this IF you are willing to invest the time and be consistent with your skincare regimen.

The first step is to use self-massage using your fingers, or a tool like the Anma, to get lymph draining into the lymph nodes where it can be removed from the body. Watch this video to see those movements. Using the Anma the pressure applied is light and in the direction of lymph drainage. You can also use a jade roller to get the lymph stuck in this area of the face to drain.

It is important to release the jaw using movements in the shape of a C along the jawline and up in front of the ear and into the temples where all these muscles are connected. Watch this video to learn more about releasing movements.

If you have been following me for very long, you know I am a HUGE fan of microcurrent for toning and shaping the face. The more you use your Clareblend Mini Microcurrent, the more responsive your face becomes and you begin to see the cheeks lift and tone. Remember, the effects of aging did not happen overnight, so it will not reverse overnight. Stay committed to taking great care of your skin and you will reap the benefits of a more youthful appearance.
