There are a number of exercises that are believed to be good for facial tightening. Massages and facial masks are also commonly recommended. It can also be helpful to include firming or anti-wrinkle products in a daily skincare regimen. If an individual is interested in professional procedures, she may consider microcurrent therapy or laser skin tightening.

One means of facial tightening is to exercise the muscles in that area. Unlike other types of exercise, this generally does not require a special occasion or any special equipment. An individual may be able to do facial exercises throughout the day while driving, working, or even breastfeeding. There are a variety of these activities that can be learned from books, websites, or DVDs.

Massage can also help a person who is interested in facial tightening. Collagen is a fibrous material that gives the skin,and as people get older less is produced. Getting a massage, however, stimulates circulation, which is believed to promote production. Although a professional massage may be more thorough and skilled, the massage can be done at home, and likely will have to be at least sometimes, if individuals follow the advice of having one daily.

It is a good idea to follow up with a facial tightening mask at least once per week. These are widely available from retailers who sell other beauty supplies. They can also be made at home, as recipes are widely available on the Internet and the ingredients usually consist of general food items. Whether the masks are purchased or made, honey is a good ingredient to have included. It may also be helpful to include tightening, firming, or anti-wrinkle skincare products as part of the daily beauty regimen.

There are a number of professional procedures that a person may want to consider for facial tightening. Microcurrent therapy is one non-surgical option. This painless procedure involves sending microcurrents through the skin and into the facial muscles. Doing this is supposed to firm the skin and also to reeducate the muscles. There are machines that allow an individual to perform this procedure at home, but there are some debates over whether the results are comparable to having it done professionally.

Lasers can be used for skin tightening. This a process that involves using infrared light to penetrate the surface of the skin and reach the collagen. When the temperature of the collagen is increased, it contracts, causing a tightening effect that is visible on the surface.
