As opposed to our soft, polished and wrinkle-free skin at birth, the skin begins to lose its elasticity as we age, although we can’t see it happening. As we grow, the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines and the like are quite hard to miss as they become more and more noticeable, leaving us with no choice other than to use anti-ageing creams and other facial treatments.
Nowadays, it seems that everyone needs to have gone through some form of facial lift surgery to be classified as beautiful, and these treatments have become beauty fundamentals. But unknown to many people, you can still get a so-called facial lift in a more natural way, which is definitely better for you. Here’s how you can achieve this!
Ways to perform a natural face lift
You can achieve a natural face lift by performing exercises and also using your own homemade mask.
A few exercises for you to perform
Making a face as if you want to whistle, close your eyes while forcing your lips forward. Behave like you are trying to catch something with your lips. Make sure you hold this position for about 15 seconds before going on to the next step.
Open your eyes wide as if you are surprised to see something and make sure your eyebrows are raised. After this, open your mouth wide, almost trying to pull every inch of your face away from your mouth. Stretch till you can stretch no more. Hold this position for about 20 seconds. Alternate several times between this and the first exercise above.
Closing your mouth and clenching your teeth, try to pull down the corners of your lips with a bit of force. Make sure all the muscles in your neck are tight. Try to lift your chin muscle upward while keeping your head in the same position. Repeat this step slowly four times and then quickly for about eight times. This is a stand alone step. You do not have to do it alongside the 2 steps above.
Repeat all of these exercises a second time
Making your own homemade mask
You can choose either a Vitamin E Mask or a Lemon Mask
Making a Vitamin E mask requires you to mix up whipping cream, banana and gel from a vitamin E capsule. Apply this to your face and wash off with warm water after 15 minutes.
Making a lemon mask on the other hand requires a mixture of fresh lemon, beaten egg, powdered milk and witch hazel. Apply this mixture to your face and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
