There are tons of anti-aging creams and serums on the market that are formulated to help you tighten your skin and prevent signs of aging. However, these beauty products often contain chemicals and ingredients that are counteractive. The best way to battle sagging skin is to use natural remedies to tighten your facial skin at home. Not sure what to do or where to start? We’ve got some tips on how to tighten your facial skin fast!
How to Tighten Your Skin at Home
One way to get your facial skin tight and glowing is to work out the muscles in your face. How do you tighten your face skin with exercise? When you tone the muscles underneath the skin, your skin will tighten too. This is a great option because you can really target the areas of your face that you’d like to tone, and work them out individually.
If you’re worried about worry lines, you can work out your forehead muscles. Bes Skincare has a great forehead workout you can follow to tighten the skin around your forehead:
“Start by raising your eyebrows nice and high. The idea is to create horizontal lines across your brows before bringing them together in a frowned expression. At this time, squeeze your eyes shut for 3-5 seconds then release and relax. By repeating this technique for 2-3 minutes each day you should start to see those expression lines fading and your forehead restoring itself to its pre-worry state.”
The eye area is high movement, which makes it a popular area for loose skin and wrinkles. The skin around your eyes is very thin and delicate, which is why it’s prone crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles, and sagging eyelids. You can effectively workout your undereye area to prevent wrinkles by squinting your eyes while they’re closed, 10 times. Complete three sets of this each day, and we promise you’ll see a difference!
Though lips aren’t a huge worry when it comes to wrinkles, they can deflate and get thinner over time. Skip the lip injections and follow Bes Skincare’s one simple tip for plump, luscious lips.
“Hold your lips out in your biggest pout face ever. With puckered, pouting lips, try and smile as you slowly release air through your lips. Hold this position for 10 seconds. It’s not as easy as it sounds but practice makes perfect so repeat this 3 times daily for optimal results.”
More Anti-Aging Exercises
Second to the eyes, the neck is another major area that’s affected by age. Skin around your neck can sag and wrinkle and is one of the most telling attributes of your age. Avoid a saggy neck with this skin tightening home remedy: Stretch your neck out as far as you can, being sure to keep your back straight, and use your jaw to stretch it out even further. You may feel a little bit like a turkey doing this exercise, but we promise it won’t have your neck looking like one! Hold this position for 10 seconds, release, and repeat three more times.
If your want to work out your cheek area to prevent sagging, there are more ways to tighten the skin on your face without surgery. Forego the face lift and follow this simple exercise to keep your cheeks firm and young looking:
“Take a breath in and fill your cheeks with air like a blowfish. The more air you take in the more you stretch your cheeks. Move the air from one cheek to the other and repeat until you need to stop and take another breath. This is great for building up your cheeks as well as surrounding facial muscles. And yes, you will look silly but you will also look younger so don’t neglect this step.”
Doing facial exercises is a great way to avoid surgery and potentially harmful skincare products—not to mention, it’s free!
