Should You Be Exercising Your Face?

One of the emerging new trends when it comes to skin care and anti-aging is a bit unexpected. We are already familiar with gyms that focus on High-Intensity Interval Training, or powerlifting, or yoga, but this is a totally new kind of gym, specifically designed for your face.

That’s right, skincare and anti-aging devotees are encouraging people to get facials that work out the muscles in your face to prevent the outward signs of aging. These facials do the normal detoxifying and pampering, but they also tone and contour your face with deep-sculpting and fast-whipping techniques. Face gym-goers describe having glowing, re-energized skin.

These facial workouts include steps any gym goer is familiar with, such as a warm-up, cardio session, and cooldown. A recently published study shows that women between the ages of 40 to 65 years old who performed facial exercises for thirty minutes per day did, in fact, appear younger by the end of the study, which was 20 weeks long. For some people, that may be a bit too long to wait.

For faster results, it might be better and more cost-effective to pursue more traditional anti-aging procedures, such as laser treatments.

How To Get Rid of Hormonal Acne 

 

Hormonal acne is seriously the worst. No matter how often you cleanse your skin, what kind of products you’re using day and night, and what you’re eating, your hormones can cause eruptions all over your skin.

While getting to the core of your hormonal imbalance is probably the best solution in the long-term, there are some things you can do that will help you out in the meantime. According to dermatologists, here are the steps to take to help keep those pesky spots at bay.

1. Be ssure to cleanse thoroughly, and wipe away all makeup, dirt, and grime at the end of each day.

2. Consider taking a hormone supplement to balance out the hormones that may be causing your breakouts in the first place.

*3. Consider scheduling a regular monthly chemical peel to boost cell turnover, restore skin’s radiance, and inhibit oil production.

4. Be sure you’re not drying out the rest of your skin with your acne treatments. It’s essential to moisturize elsewhere if your medicated spot reducer is overly drying.
