Beauty Tips 360: Facial Exercises don’t work, what you can do instead

The Daily Mail says that facial exercises don’t work in the long term.

There is, unfortunately, very little scientific proof that either facial exercises or electronic exercisers produce any long term benefits for an ageing face.

The electronic machines usually create a little bit of swelling where they are applied. It is this temporary swelling that improves the appearance of the face i.e. it fills out some of the sagging lines and creases.

Similarly, facial exercises, whilst admittedly doing no harm, have never been compared with any other form of treatment.

What we would really need to do to prove that they are of any benefit is to treat half of the face and not the other half and then to compare the results.

I think these things come down to a very individual decision; if you feel that they are doing you some good and don’t cost too much then why not.

However, there are better ways to improve your skin including, possibly, the laser and certainly skin care programmes using topical Retin A.
