A Smoother Forehead

The forehead muscles tend to get quite tense forming deep wrinkles and lines. The main idea of doing forehead exercise is to relax the forehead muscles which will help in removing the wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead.

Chin Lifts

When the chin begins to sag, this can really alter the look of your entire face, but the chin facial exercise will help to firm your chin back up.

A Natural Facelift

This exercise works both the facial and neck muscles, meaning not only does it target double chins, but it will also give your face a leaner and tighter appearance, similar to the results of a facelift.

The Eye Lift

The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate, and is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging. This eye lift technique will help to lift drooping eyelids, as well as sagging skin around the eyes, smoothing this out to result in a much more youthful appearance.
