Will Facial Exercises Prevent Wrinkles – and give your skin a lift??

Fiction: – The more you make facial movements, the deeper your lines become!

Every time your facial muscles move (when you speak, make facial expressions etc) your skin moves too. This is called ‘dynamic movement’ and produces dynamic wrinkles. Overtime, dynamic wrinkles will turn into ‘static lines’. Meaning  ….they are permanently etched in our skin.

Years back we were recommended facial yoga “poses” involve lifting eyebrows, puckering  lips, and scrunching up our face in various other ways. All these moves cause creasing and crinkling ….aka ‘dynamic wrinkles’.
SO ….as you can see, exercising your facial muscles will actually increase your chance of wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle. The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.
Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, instantly softening lines and wrinkles and reducing the severity of visible wrinkles.

Adult Acne

The hard Facts

  • Effects approximately 35% of women.
  • 41% of women experience premenstrual breakouts.
  • Can last on average 20 years.
  • Is the most common reason people visit a dermatologist.


  • Pores being clogged with oil, bacteria and dead skin cells.
  • Hormones.
    Beginning in our 30’s our levels of androgens increase. This results in our sebaceous glands secreting thicker sebum, which clogs the pores and increases the likeliness of Acne (in a lot of adult women).
  • A high G.I diet.
    Studies have shown that a high-glycemic index (GI) diet (refined carbohydrates like those found in white bread and also sugar) can increase Acne. It’s suspected that raised insulin levels from high GI foods may trigger a release of hormones that inflame follicles and increase oil production.
  • Stress.
    Stress hormones such as cortisol can increase inflammation and stimulate oil glands.
  • Family history.
  • Poor gut health.
  • Too much unfermented dairy, gluten and sugar – which can all cause inflammation.
  • Using the wrong skincare products.
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies (Zinc & Vitamin A).


  • Topical Retinoids such as Retinol.
    Retinol is a vitamin A derivative, which helps with the skins natural cellular renewal process. This can then help with acne and also wrinkles. Retinoids can be either prescription strength or OTC.
  • Suplementation with Zinc and Vitamin A.
  • Omega 3 supplementation – found in fish oil, Sea Buckthorn & flaxseeds clear acne by inhibiting two inflammatory chemicals that are responsible for acne breakouts, they are called PGE2 and LTB4. Omega-3’s do wonders for all inflammatory skin conditions.
  • See Kleresca the modern breakthrough in dermatology
  • Improving gut health.
    Through dietary changes, prebiotics and probiotics.
  • Oral prescription medication such as short term antibiotics (and I stress ‘short term’ due to the disruption in gut health’) or in severe cases Accutane (a synthetic vitamin A derivative). Note Accutane can have irritating side effects and must not be taken when pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Stress management
    Managing stress through exercise, meditation, or whatever method helps calm your nerves may also calm your skin.
  • Gently Cleanse your face and body as soon as you can after exercise.
  • Topical antibiotics (short term only).
  • Dietary adjustments. Cut out unfermented dairy which worsens acne because it spikes the acne-causing hormone IGF-1 & can increase inflammation.
  • Topical Benzoyl Peroxide.
    Kills the acne bacteria. However it can make skin dry and irritated if you use too much. Stick to spot-treating only so that you do not destroy your protective lipid barrier.
  • Skincare products (cleansers etc) containing Hydroxy acids (aka Glycolic, Lactic or Salicylic acid).
    Work by exfoliating gently to unclog pores, remove dead surface cells and also promote cell turnover. It’s in a lot of OTC cleansers and spot treatments. It can also reduces swelling and redness. However keep in mind that some products are way to harsh and can damage your lipid barrier.
  • A low GI diet (ditch the white carbs and sugar).
  • LED Light Therapy. Researchers have discovered that something as simple as light holds the key to clearing up acne. It is in fact clinically proven to reduce acne lesions by 70%. The blue light targets the acne bacteria and promotes the body’s own natural healing response to rejuvenate skin. SO your acne fades and your skin heals.
    –  Safe, effective, no down time
