Preparing masks to rejuvenate and tighten facial skin

One of the first remedies that are used in combating the aging of facial skin are masks made of simple and accessible to all components. Let's consider the most popular recipes.

  • cucumber mask- suitable for mixed or dry skin. Includes: cucumber pulp puree (the skin and seeds must be removed in advance) as well as egg white beaten with an electric mixer. These two ingredients must be mixed and added 1 tsp. vegetable oil (preferably olive oil). This tool will help not only tighten the skin, but also lighten age spots on the face. Frequency of use - twice a week for 3 months.
  • white clay mask. . . To cook it, you need to mix 2 tbsp. me. white clay (available from the pharmacy), 1 tbsp. me. grape juice and 1 tsp. crushed wheat germ. Apply the product in an even layer on the neck and face for 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and dry the skin with a terry towel with gentle rinsing motions.
  • dill mask. . . The product has refreshing and toning properties. To prepare it, you will need 1 tablespoon of oatmeal and 1 tablespoon of chopped dill. Next you need to add 1 tsp. olive oil and, mixed all the ingredients, apply the product to the skin for about 20 minutes. It is recommended to repeat the procedure once a week and a half.
  • Wheat Flour Mask.Perfectly nourishes and tightens the skin of the face. Beat 1 egg, add 1 tsp. salt and 50 g of vegetable oil. Then separately pour 25 g of wheat flour with 0. 25 l of water and cook the mixture until it thickens. Then pour a glass of cold water into it (this will prevent the skin from forming as it cools down). When the temperature reaches room temperature, drain the water, add to the dough with egg butter and beat well until you get a thick consistency. The mask should be applied for 20-30 minutes.

Facial wash with contrast

Rubbing your face with an ice cube or a contrast bath can also help rejuvenate your skin at home. For this, it is best to use a frozen decoction of medicinal herbs. To prepare it, pour 400 ml of boiling water 2 tbsp. me. fresh parsley and marigold flowers. After 40 minutes, pour the infusion into molds and place in the freezer. Clean your face with cubes of this broth every morning.

It is very effective to apply contrasting compresses to the facial skin. In this case, it is advisable to use not ordinary water, but the same herbal decoctions (wormwood, chamomile, dandelion, etc. ). First apply a hot compress for 2-3 minutes, then a cold compress for a few seconds. Pads need to be changed 5-10 times and this procedure should be done no more than three times a week.

face lifting exercises

Weight lifting gymnastics is another effective facelift remedy. It must be done every day, morning and evening. Before exercising, the skin should be cleansed and moisturized with a cream. A session will take no more than 30 minutes. To begin the exercise, sit in front of a mirror in a comfortable position. Observing which facial muscles are involved will help you do the exercises correctly.

Do a brief warm-up first. Take a deep breath and exhale several times. Lightly massage the skin with your hands in a circular motion and tap with your fingertips (this will improve blood circulation). Then start gymnastics.

Forehead Skin Exercises - Help to smooth, tighten and relax the skin. Follow these steps:

  • Moving away from the hairline about a finger's width, massage the point in the middle of the forehead for 1 minute. Apply pressure in a circular motion (clockwise). At the same time, the toe pad must be directed upwards. At the same time, with the middle finger of the second hand, it is necessary to pull the tip of the nose down.
  • Then place the fingers of both hands at specific points. Place your middle fingers in the middle of your forehead, place your index fingers even higher where the protrusion of the frontal bone is located, and place your ring fingers at the base of your eyebrows. All fingertips should face up.
  • Now start doing circular massage movements with all your fingers at the same time. In this case, the right hand must go clockwise, and the left - against. Do the exercise for 1 minute.

Exercises for the upper eyelids. The skin of the eyelids is very delicate and thin and it is there that the first wrinkles are formed. To avoid such changes, it is necessary to:

  • Place three fingers of both hands under your eyebrows. From this point, raise your eyebrows with your fingertips, trying to reach the eyebrow line. Hold this position for 10 seconds with your eyes open.
  • Then lower your eyebrows down, countering the fingers that direct them upward. Stay in this position for 10 seconds.
  • Then remove your fingers and relax. The exercise should be repeated 3-4 times.

Facial contour lifting exercises. To keep the shape of the face beautiful, it is necessary to wrap it with an elastic bandage from time to time in the first place. This can be done at night if such a device does not bother you, or during the day when you are at home.

When it comes to exercises, "cheek snorting" is very effective:

  • Take a deep breath, pulling the maximum amount of air into your mouth, exhale your cheeks. Without letting the air out, start pressing on them with your palms. To resist your hands, try to puff your cheeks out as much as possible at this point.
  • Stay in this position for about 15 seconds and then relax.
  • Repeat the exercise 4 times.

Gymnastics for the face, which consists of the pronunciation of vowels, gives good results. To do this, stretch your lips forward and expressively pronounce the letters "a", "o" and "y" (10-15 times each).

Remember that a facelift doesn't give immediate results. To achieve the desired effect, you need regularity and persistence. However, it is one of the proven and totally harmless methods of facial rejuvenation.
