How to Start Faceworks
The weekly exercise schedule for your workout is 5 workout days, and 2 rest days for the first 3 months.
This tried and tested schedule gives the facial muscles the right amount of exercise to rebuild and rejuvenate. It’s easy to follow - and whatever workout you do, the schedule is the same. So if you change to a different workout you’ll still be able to use the same slot in your day for your Faceworks session.
If you’re nervous about face exercises, don’t be. This program maximises skin health while protecting the delicate areas that are prone to wrinkling. The exercises lift, tone, tighten and rejuvenate – so that the signs of aging fade.
The changes will be small to begin with: face exercises aren’t like an instant Photoshop, but your facelift will build week on week. The program delivers beautiful results, and even after the first intensive three months, you’ll continue to see changes on the reduced schedule. There are a lot of long term Faceworks users who confirm this - personally I saw continued changes over two years. All kinds of people have successfully used Faceworks for their own natural facelift: including surgeons, doctors, fitness experts and make-up artists.
Hello! I just wanted to say that this facial exercise program is the BEST. I used another that is popular in the States and it did basically nothing. This truly works! I can see a difference just in a couple of weeks. And it feels very good, too! Mary, USA
Before I started Faceworks, I used to hate the dreadful ‘tired’ look I had all the time, and my kids said I looked permanently cross. The tired and cross look was gone in 4 weeks and it has never come back - over 10 years later.
The Results Timeline not only tells you what results happen when, it gives you something to compare your results with to keep track of your progress. It’s a great motivator too, as you’ll see.
What do you need when you start your workouts?
- A mirror that you can position while you watch the videos, and see without holding.
- Adequate Time. Allow an extra 10 minutes for your workout in the first week as you learn the exercises
- Positive mindset - start positive and you're halfway there! I'll share plenty of ideas to boost motivation too.
- 100% Concentration - no multitasking! If you do the exercises at the same time as something else, like your housework or watching TV they won't work. Or if you do them on your daily commute (more on that story later).
Plan for success
Make Faceworks a priority for the first 3 months Plan when you’ll do your workout in advance with a regular routine, so that you know that time is booked. The 5 times a week schedule is the key to get those changes happening – if you only do one or two sessions it won’t be enough for your muscles to rebuild and lift.
The exercises are designed to be used when best suits you: they are GREAT first thing in the morning to wake you up, or to release tension at the end of the day. Use them as a beauty treatment before you go out and get that sparkle going – people will notice!
The exercises have been designed to produce gradual improvement at superficial and deeper levels. It’s not necessary to be aggressive with your face at all, so don’t overwork the muscles by increasing repetitions or hold the position for longer than the time stated. ‘Big’ movements aren’t needed, so avoid extending the range of movement especially in the jaw and neck. The exercises have little reminders to keep your shoulders and jaw relaxed.
It's normal to feel a little muscle ache, just as you would after going to the gym or doing any other type of exercise but don’t overdo it. The muscles need to rest in between workouts to enable them to rebuild.
Seeing your first results is the gateway to unstoppable motivation. To get to there, you have to actually do the exercises. There’s no point skirting round them like they might bite. Some people who sign up don’t start for a while, like Naomi in Australia:
“Even though I purchased this in August last year I only started using Faceworks seriously 4 weeks ago. Just wanted to let you know that today I glanced in a mirror I was passing whilst shopping and my first thoughts were ‘WOW’ :) I’m really happy with the results, thank you.Warm Regards, Naomi”
The exercises work. Though I have researched and developed them and I know that they work brilliantly, there is one vital element missing. It’s you. You’re the spark, you are where the magic happens. And that is true whether you’re doing Faceworks or dancing like a diva in rain.
When you commit to a course of action and your mind is clear on what you want to do, the actual ‘doing’ is (relatively) effortless. Make your session ‘me’ time and enjoy it.
Tip: If your motivation falters or you get ‘too busy’, the Timeline gives you the next changes to look for to keep you on track.
Tip: Get yourself a workout buddy who wants to do Faceworks too. Or, ask a friend to help you monitor your results once a month. It’s best to choose someone who you don’t see every day for this.
A little word on confidence
Out of all the results I and many other people have had – the massive boost in confidence is the one thing that is SO surprising. It’s the thing I get the most emails about. My confidence started to skyrocket when I realised that not only was my sagging, tired face changing dramatically, I now had control over HOW I aged. (Apologies for the capital letters, but my confidence is still up there). Stacia from Florida in the USA sums it up perfectly:
“I LOVE IT! I’ve already had compliments and it’s only been a few weeks. I can’t imagine what I might look like after doing this for a year! One person said my face looks thinner. Another person said my face looks less round, another that my eyes are brighter”
Being more confident has changed the way I feel about myself, and I hope you discover that too. It’s my really sincere wish for everyone to feel great about themselves no matter what age they are. We are; each of us, beautiful unique miracles – we deserve to feel joy and to love ourselves deeply.
Why DO faces age?
The biggest cause of the face looking older is sagging muscles. This happens because facial muscles slacken over time. But what I love about muscles is that when they are exercised, they change their shape: an un-exercised muscle is longer and thinner than a toned one. Exercise makes the muscle shorter, more compact and tighter. This tightness level is called ‘resting tone’. Slack muscles have a low resting tone, while exercised muscles have a higher resting tone.
Facial sagging starts to show when we hit our mid-30s. The longer and thinner the muscles become, the more they sag. The good news is that exercising reverses sagging, and returns the muscle to its’ previous shape. As you can see from Louise’s review below, there is no age limit to the effects of exercise .
“I started doing your exercises a week ago and already my nose and eye area feel less ‘bony’ and plumper…so nice. I am 63 years old and for the past 5 years have felt so frustrated about my facial sagging and had no idea how to change it.” Louise.
