Facial Exercise - THE AGING PROCESS

Societal pressure is high. We have to do more and more in less and less time. And in everything we do, we demand more and more perfection of ourselves. And as if that wasn't enough, we also have to look good and, preferably, as young as we can. But all that pressure causes us to lose sleep and the stress we get from the whole process actually makes us age prematurely. We don't take enough time for ourselves and we try to stop the aging process with expensive creams and treatments.

More and more TV shows are popping up about people getting total makeovers. They don't just get some nice clothes and a cute haircut, they also get botox injections and mini-facelifts. Anything to recapture that youthful glow. It just keeps getting even more important to look good and the media is constantly (unintentionally?) raising the bar.

The problem with facelifts, botox injections and other expensive treatments is that the results are only temporary. Once the effects of the treatment have worn off, we actually look even older than before and go running back to the clinics for a new round of treatments.

The fact is that we all get older, whether we want to or not. And the high demands that are placed on us (by ourselves and others) only accelerate the process. But that doesn't have to happen. We can slow the aging process in a natural way and keep ourselves looking younger for years to come. And not just looking, but also feeling younger. If you follow the advice in this book, you won't just look fantastic, you'll feel more energized than ever. So stop with those hyper-expensive treatments that only offer a temporary stop-gap and are often bad for your health and follow the plan in this book. Yes, you will have to work for it, but what you get in return is unbelievably rewarding. Plenty of people have gone before you and none of them had ever dreamed that they might feel so good and look as amazing as they do now.

When we age, the skin loses its moisture and elasticity. This results in wrinkles, loose skin and liver spots. Elastin and collagen are the two most important proteins of the connective tissue which ensures that tissues in the body return to their original shape after expanding or contracting. But the amount of elastin and collagen in our bodies dissipates as we get older. This makes our skin vulnerable, loose and thin.

What causes this process? Free radicals! Free radicals are the culprits behind the aging of the skin. One free radical can start an entire chain reaction of free radicals that damages our skin, in a process called oxidation. Slowly but surely, the skin cells become damaged because they aren't being sufficiently hydrated, and the skin slowly dries out, causing wrinkles. And aside from the wrinkles, crow's feet and uneven complexion, our skin also becomes sallow and loose.

There are different factors that contribute to this aging process, which we can divide into internal and external factors.

Internal factors refer to the natural aging process, that starts to take effect around the age of 25. These factors are beyond our control, completely natural and driven by genetics.

The various external factors which contribute to the aging process can be controlled using precautionary measures and changes in our lifestyle.

External factors include: 
· Exposure to the sun; 
· Smoking; 
· Pollution; 
· Stress; 
· Hard chemicals (found in make-up and skin care products); 
· Poor nutrition.

Signs of aging

In order to start slowing aging process in time, it might be useful to know what the first signs of aging are. There are different signs which can be found on the body once aging starts to set in, including:

· Fine lines, crow's feet and laugh lines; 
· Loose skin, especially around the jawline and on the neck; 
· Bags under the eyes and tired looking eyes; 
· (liver) spots on one or more parts of the face; 
· Thin skin that may feel dry and itchy if it's not well hydrated; 
· Adult acne.

Thankfully there are lots of things we can do to slow down this aging process.
