Facial Exercises Keep Skin Taut

Reality: Alas, no. The muscle contractions used in facial exercises can actually contribute to wrinkling. Think of your face s a piece of paper that's being folded over and over again in the same spot. After a while, that area becomes permanently etched. And if you're hoping that facial exercises can fill out hollows cause by sagging, here's some bad news. There's no concrete evidence of plumping benefits either. Volume loss is caused by a decrease in collagen, elastin, and fat-non of which can be replaced with exercises.
