A sagging face will always look dry or dull because it can't reflect light properly. But, you can easily fix it with simple facial exercises.
If you've tried different remedies for firmer, glowing skin, and still wondered, why does my skin look so dull?
Here is a simple solution to consider...
Can sagging facial skin be reversed?
Yes, to a degree! But, it won't happen overnight. I found face exercises, over time, to be fairly effective at reversing those early signs of sagging.
Note: The most dramatic changes I've seen since following this exercise program is less sagging in the lower face and jowl area and more defined cheeks.
Facial exercises, the kind that require muscle resistance, not only help firm a sagging face, but can fix dull skin too. Have you tried different remedies for glowing skin, but your face still looks dry or dull?
Here is a solution.
Are you wondering why your skin looks dull even after trying most common dry skin remedies like exfoliation, moisturizers, and hydration?
For years, I used a variety of glowing skin remedies and was happy with my results.
But as I got older, those remedies and fixes didn't work as well. No matter what I tried, my face lacked that bright, glowing look.
So what was missing? Facial Muscle Tone.
In the before and after picture above, my skin looked gray and dull, even though I exfoliated in many ways, from scrubs to acid peels.
But once I started facial exercises, the underlying muscles firmed up, allowing the skin to reflect light more evenly, giving the face a smooth shine or glow.
The muscles of the face are intertwined and connected with the skin. That's how we're able to show and express emotions.
When we use our frown or smile muscles, the skin moves along with the muscle. If we can keep our facial muscles firm and built-up, the overlying skin stays tighter and smooths out.
This allows for better light reflection and brighter, more glowy skin. And, results are even greater if we take care to keep it clean, exfoliated and hydrated.
Improved Skin Tone
Besides building facial muscles, exercises helps pump fluid into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, and firming up the skin around the contracted muscles.
Long Term Rejuvenation
Exercise also helps keep the skin and connective tissues firm and healthy, so they continue to produce collagen and elastin even as we age.
Wrinkles and lines are not the only issues that age a face. 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, I was convinced that good results can be obtained from at-home facial muscle exercises.
Yes, results cannot be compared to a surgical facelift. But it is the least expensive and easiest way to improve the facial contour and lift and firm the mid-face/lower face,
So how can you naturally lift sagging face, cheeks and reduce fat around the lower face and jowls?
Try facial exercises.
If you do them consistently, they work to improve your facial contours. First I noticed a reduction of that "doughy, pudgy look" around the lower jawline/jawbone.
Also, my cheeks seemed more defined and overall face looked tighter and smoother.
The longer I do these exercises, the more results I see. This is especially true around the lower face area.
I love that the lower part of my face is slimmer – like it was when I was younger.
Yes, there are plenty of facial exercise programs to choose from.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve tried many exercise routines, but for one reason or another, I found them difficult to follow because:
This workout felt right to me. It was quick, easy to follow and allowed me to obtain a smooth, elegant build.
Just like any other workout, it's important to find a face exercise program that you enjoy doing, so you'll be able to stick with it and see results.
One essential feature of this program is that it incorporates isometric and muscle resistance training along with skin massaging/polishing.
The massaging/polishing helps improve skin suppleness and reduces that thin, papery skin look. And there is evidence that massaging/polishing the skin also helps increase collagen production.
The chart below shows all the muscles used while during the workout.
In the first 6–12 months it's recommend you do the workout about 3 times - which takes less than 15 minutes a session.
Once you've achieved your goals, you can cut down to a few times a month for maintenance.
Here is a list of all the face exercises in this program and the muscles they activate.

Once you achieve a good facial foundation but still have areas that need extra help, you can add a specific Bonus workout for that area.
One part of face aging that concerns us the most is saggy jowls. The excess loose skin and loss of definition in the jawline, can be a concern, and may affecting how we feel about ourselves.
Some of us have even embarked on some strange cosmetic procedures like buccal fat removal surgery to reduce jowls.
Even though it's a big trend among celebrities, it may not the most effective method. Looking for a more natural approach?
While non-surgery options won't offer dramatic results like a face lift, there are several non-surgical methods that could help lift the jowls. Plus, they're safer, with less side effects.

Want to know how facial muscles work and how you can look younger with face exercises?
Click on the following for more detailed information on why we age well with facial exercises. But, here is a basic, simple explanation:
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.
Finally, regardless of whether you choose facial exercises, facial massages or both, basic simple skincare goes a long way to help keep your skin and face looking younger.
A good all natural, pH balanced, almost organic, scent-free moisturizer not only hydrates, but feeds your skin too. This can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, along with your exercise routine.
You can and should also use this cream before your workouts. This is especially important if your skin is very damaged, wrinkled, sensitive or in bad condition.
As time goes on and your skin becomes firmer and stronger, you can use less cream, so you can get a stronger workout.
People always ask for a specific 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?
So how are Bonus exercises different from spot training?
Everyone is different and has different needs. So it's important to first build a good foundation for the whole face/neck by doing following the full basic workout routine for a few months to year - depending on the condition of your skin and face.
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 "spot training" because you still are doing a full face workout monthly. Just like your body, your face needs a full basic workout before you can address areas that concern you.
