As you get older, you will start to notice the shape of your face changing. Your facial features continue to grow as you age, as do the contours of your jawline as you lose more and more elasticity in your skin.
You may notice sagging skin as your collagen levels become depleted, a less full-looking face as you lose fat in this area and thinner lips. Furthermore, the actual structure of your face can change, with larger eye sockets resulting in dark circles under your eyes and a decrease in the angle of the bones beneath your eyebrows leading to forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Now, before you start to get really depressed about the above, there are ways in which you can combat this and actively start to reshape and lift your face.
Starting with . . .
Using a facial toning device
If you want to improve the contours of your face, even out your skin tone and reduce wrinkles and fine lines, then a 5-Minute Facial Lift using a simple, yet highly effective facial toning device is the right choice for you.
Designed to mimic a mini facelift but without any surgical procedure needed, if you carry out this facial three times a week, you will see amazing results in the shape and overall appearance of your face and even your neck area.
Carrying out daily facial exercises
Just like the other muscles in your body, your facial muscles will respond to the right type of exercise. The muscles in your face form a strong foundation for your skin, and therefore, if you want to prevent and even help to reverse sagging, you need to be carrying out daily facial exercises. Otherwise known as face yoga.
By committing to a set routine of the best facial exercises, you can expect to tone your facial muscles, improve blood circulation in your face and tighten the skin itself.
Contouring your face with makeup
If you want a quick fix, minimal effort solution to sagging skin and a loss of oomph in your face, then makeup is the way to go.
Contouring is your new best friend and should be the first element of your makeup routine, ahead of both bronzing and foundation. Start by contouring under your cheekbones for a lifted look and then applying a foundation in a shade or two darker for an even more sculpted look.
Blush applied to the apple of your cheeks will create a plump and youthful look, and by adding mascara and eyeliner to your upper lash line only, you will lift rather than drag down your eyes.
Trying filler injectables
You must choose the right filler injectable for your face and for what you are looking to achieve. For example, Botox injectables can be used to reduce the width of your face, if you find that your jaw muscles have bulked up over time. Whereas chin fillers are a good idea for those, who want to create the ever-desirable v-shaped face.
Ultimately, it is your decision how far you want to go to achieve your desired face shape. Although, it is important to remember than nothing can completely stop the ageing process and sometimes it is better to just make a few small tweaks or add a couple of extra elements to your weekly skincare regime rather than become obsessed with changing the entire shape of your face.
Work with improving what you’ve got, rather than trying to change into someone you’re not.
