The best anti-aging beauty remedy for a sagging face? Facial Exercises!
Note: The most dramatic changes I've seen since following this face lift exercise program is less sagging face in the lower face and jowl area and firmer more defined cheeks.
Experts say the shape of our face changes with age. The face tends to get bottom heavy (i.e....droopy cheeks, jowls, and double chin) as time goes on.
I decided to try face exercises to see if I can firm up the lower part of my face and reduce that heavy jowl look.
Within a few months of I was convinced you can get good results at home with facial muscle exercises. One of the first areas I noticed a huge change was my sagging neck. These results only took 8 weeks!
This is, by far, the least expensive and easiest way I’ve found to improve my facial contour and get a midface/lower face lift.
I saw less pudginess around the lower face and jowls
What I noticed first is a reduction of that "doughy, pudgy look" around the lower jawline/jawbone. And, my cheeks look higher and firmer. Also, I think the overall skin looks tighter and smoother.

The longer I do these exercises - the more results I see. Especially around the lower jowl area. I love that the lower part of my face is slimmer - like it was when I was younger.
I’ve tried several other face exercise routines - and for one reason or another – they just didn’t work well for me. I got excellent results following this face exercise program.
One important feature of this face exercise program is that it incorporates isometric and muscle resistance training along with skin massaging/polishing.
The massaging/polishing helps improve skin tone. And there is some evidence that it also helps increase collagen production.
I started with facial muscle toning when I was in my late 30s when started to notice sagging skin around my jowls and neck wrinkles! Wow, I thought "wasn't I too young for this to be happening already" - right?
So below are the exercises I do to help lift and firm my sagging face. The chart below shows all the muscles used while doing the 28 exercises. I do this workout 3 times a week and it takes 15 minutes per session.

People always ask for an exercise to fix a certain area of the face that bothers them. But that's really spot training and should avoid for a few reasons:
Some people think they won't have time to do all 28 exercises. But the truth is - this workout is very quick.
Only 15 minutes a session 3-4 times a week. And, the majority of the exercises are done lying down! How simple is that?
Everyone is different and has different needs. So it's important to first build a good foundation for the whole face/neck (about 5-6 weeks).
Then if you still see areas that are not responding as well (for me it was the jowls/neck area) it's OK to do a few extra bonus exercise to firm up those areas.
This is not really "spot training" because I'm doing a full face workout weekly, I just need a little extra help in the lower face area.
For example: A few months ago I added the Lower Jaw Lifter routine to help firm up my problem areas (the jowl/double chin/neck). This added about 3 minutes to my total weekly workout, but to me, it's worth it when I see the results!
Here is a sample of this "bonus" exercise to lift sagging face and jowls.

But, a very basic simple explanation is this:
When facial muscles are toned and have more bulk, they help lift and smooth the attached skin. This results in a tighter, more defined face and neck with less sagging and wrinkles.
A nice supplement to facial exercises is a facial toning massage with an Ayurvedic Kansa wand.
The Kansa wand is easy to hold (this is a plus for those with arthritis or have a hard time using their fingers to massage the face). The massaging wand can help de-puff the face and encourage lymphatic drainage.
