Hi loulou

To think I wondered if this works for guys. I am loving my younger new look. Was considering surgery but the answers were all there in my own hands.😋😋😋

It seems a bit cheeky to ask for more when have achieved all this with your program, but do you have any advice about the rest of the body? Does the same massage technique work anywhere else? I guess the skin is thicker on the body. Can you recommend the best way to go about firming skin on the body, esp
Specially under my arms and on my belly

Thanks loulou 😎😎😎

I started Ageless if you dare when I turned 31, I'm now almost 35 and believe I look younger and better than when I started. This is a great facial exercise program that dealt with my jowls and nasal labial folds issue splendidly. The other thing that really helped me is pushing my tongue to the roof of my mouth with the force primarily exerted on the back of the tongue: this was what significantly shortened my philtrum (it's now of a normal length) exercise alone wasn't enough for me in this case.

My question is I have always used a silicon massage suction cup after the exercises (and will do Tanaka massage in between if I have time). Does the use of the suction cup basically accomplish the same thing as the pulling and pinching recommended for after the exercises?

Last question - I think I read in one of Louise's books or maybe a post here that once you've done the program for a good while, you can do the exercises once a month, but do them quite vigorously. Does that seem about right?

Green Smoothies it was great to read of your success Smile and Lenny great to hear of your good progress. i'm curious to hear the responses to both of your questions.

Loulou thanks for your response.. after taking over a week off i did notice something in overall appearance. while i still have the problem areas, including bags under eyes, there must be just the slightest bit of uplift, plus more open eyes...plus my lips more noticeable to me, more shapely... and that to me is excellent Smile

can you also answer my second question in previous post? about finding it hard to get through day1 exercises (it is getting somewhat easier..but hands still tire and hard to get through the smile-to-ear exercises..have to change up my grip and even use four fingers to hold on to my upper cheeks below eyes, and thumb below..). hoping it's all okay.

do others have this issue of hands getting tired from doing the day 1? it's intense for the hands to hold on to cheeks tight for four rounds of cheek exercises lol.

Hi ballerina, yes I just did the general massage from the original program too for several weeks. I had the Ageless special massage book, but only started to use it when I wanted a change, not because it was necessary. I advise anyone who wants to start just to get the first book and go with that. As I keep sayinh, I look great 😂😂😂Lenny


Lenny how often were you doing the pinching/tugging? i mean how many days each week? and how often you're doing the day3/day4 massages?

i wish i could do more often as they are all so quick and easy (and somehow i love the pulling/tugging), but because my face easily tires..i'm keeping massage to just once a week of each day 3 and day 4.. and sometimes i add some tugging/pulling.

since you've found massage beneficial, i'm curious how often you're doing.. and if you notice and overtiring of face if you do too much massage? or if it's just the day1/day2 exercises that we've to be more careful about not overdoing if we want to avoid 'side effects.' thanks.

Hi Vandu, I massage 3 or 4 days a week. The exercises were a pretty smooth ride, my face lifted like a miracle but my neck didn't keep up the good work.

I used the simple massage in the easy ten books for ten mins every day. That's quite a long time and my face would hurt afterwards but it worked really well and started tightening my neck in no time. I'd say I looked a bit tired at first, but that soon passed. Doing 3 days a week now it's still working my skin is getting thicker and my jaw looks great. Sorry to keep boasting but I was never good looking before!!!! But doing 3 days is enough I think. Hth Lenny

Hi,
Does anyone know of a way to get a hold of Lou Lou? I've tried emailing. I was wondering if the program has changed since I purchased it when it first came out. I'm apprehensive to purchase it without being able to contact anyone. Thanks.

Hi scf 😊

There's no need to buy the programme again. It's exactly the same as it always was, except that newer editions leave out the Crush exercise. The easy ten is actually the easy nine!

There is now a second Ageless book which has massage exercises for improving the density of flesh, skin and bone, but the massage techniques in the original book work too if you don't want to buy the new one 😎

Sorry for the late reply, I've been out of the office for a few days. Thank you very much for your interest!

Hey skincarefreak, the massage book is amazing, even if you think you look as good as you can for your age. I honestly think I couldn't look better for my age even if I had surgery. I know it's a bit easier for me being a guy but plenty of the girls here have said it works for them too. Lenny 😎😎😎

Hi Loulou,

Thank you for responding! I had tried emailing the sroyce email twice and didn't get a response so was concerned about purchasing and not knowing if I'd get the material. My book is actually falling apart. I don't have the massage section anymore. I do have the 10 exercises though. I was thinking of purchasing the massage book anyhow. Thank you for your help!

I've been continuing on with the Ageless exercises and have gotten to the point where I really enjoy doing them. Something I've noticed is I think my cheeks are beginning to slightly build up but as I have very flat checks genetically this is only marginal. I feel like my nasolabial folds are looking much worse though and I have a worsening of the parenthesis on one side of my face. My instinct is telling me to continue with the cheek exercises but cut out the sxxy beast or maybe reduce it to once a week. How does this sound?

Another positive I've found is my face doesn't feel like it wobbles when I walk, sounds strange but I guess everything is beginning to tone up. Once everything has toned up I wonder when the build up of the muscle begins?

The massage I've been doing is just to pinch around the skin on me face which I believe is helping to tone my face. Another thing I was wondering is on the addictional exercises which engages the lower lip is there any downside to over doing this? I find myself doing this habitually everyday without noticing! My lips are beginning to look a lot fuller although some days I can notice no change and others they look dramatically plumper! Xxx

Hi snorkmaiden,
Great that your cheeks are filling out. Bits of your face can temporarily get a bit creased-looking when you begin to exercise it. It will go away if you have a few days off and let the muscle recover. Remember that the skin is attached to the muscle and needs time to unfold and relax after a session. Think of it as you would a skin treatment that needs recovery, like dermabrasion or a course of retin a.

Try not to use your lower lip muscle too much... you want to train the face to lift up and out. You'll soon get out of the habit x

PS I'm glad you're enjoying the exercises. It made me realise it was working when I had a good feeling I was giving my face something it had been needing a long time.

Thank you for the reply Louise ❤️ I will take that on board. I've stopped messing with my lip now! Something I wanted to ask is I wonder how much you believe can be built up on your cheeks when taking into account your faces natural shape? I can see from your before and afters that you have changed your face shape but was the face shape you have now more similar to your young selfs face or have you modified yourself completely? I ask because I want to know how realistic I can be with my results. I'd love built up cheeks like yourself but my face isn't set up like that! X

Hi LouLou - and all the users of AIYD.

I need help Smile

I bought the second edition in 2015 I think and STILL haven't used it. I'm terrified I'll look worse first and will do things wrong. I have a chubby, heavy face and my neck has started to deteriorate rapidly (although a cream and some RF seems to be staving off the decline). I've read so much I'm both excited and confused and cannot seem to get the neck exercise right.

Let me start again...

Where should I start? How often?

Can I do a skype session with you?

Do you think the slendertone face adds anything to the routine?

Thank you!!

Dear LouLou and all - please ignore my last post. I tried to delete it but can't.

I've checked the editions I have and want to check I have the right order of things so sent you (Steve) and email as I think I am missing the massage manual / programme outline (but have the DVD i think).

Having read the past 6 months of posts I'm confident that I'll start - and stick to - a schedule that LouLou recommends (not hotspots) for easy, steady and beautiful progress. No longer after the quick fix. So.... I would appreciate any input so that I can start off on the right foot.

I'm now 48 with plenty of face fat Laughing a heavy lower face, N/L folds and a neck that's suddenly gone all crepey Shock

The DVDs I have are the original AIYD, hotspots, and the 'quick and dirty' one. Q: is this the latest massage DVD or is there an updated version that I can get?

I have the complete second edition PDF but cannot find the programme set out that includes massage -
but I know I had it once.

I think the programme ought to be and please fill in the gaps!! :

DAY1.... Lift cheeks#1; Lift cheeks#2; Happy smile; Laughter; Sexy beast

DAY2... Crush; Long neck; Wish; Lift eyelids; Kiss

DAY3... massage from the quick and dirty dvd

DAY4... ???



I sent my before pictures to you (Steve) and would love some feedback via this thread so that everyone can benefit. Also happy to share pics once some progress is made.

I've used one of those 'golden ratio' graphics overlaid as well - as if I need that! lol

Thanks to everyone who has posted in this thread - it's made me revisit my programme and refuse the idea of a facelift, for now at least...

Hi snookydoops!

I'm away, so I'm afraid I haven't seen your photographs yet, but the Ageless exercises do the same for everyone. They lift the face up and out like a facelift, where they tighten the muscles, a surgeon would cut away and tighten exactly the same muscles; there aren't any extra muscles involved in lifting the face, and you don't want to strengthen muscles that pull the face down! So what you do is to directly reverse your face back where it was. Your n/ls and heavy lower face are both caused when the supporting muscles weaken and the whole face drops downward in one piece!

You do have the massage exercises, they are indeed the ones in quick n dirty.

Since the facial skin is completely stuck to the flesh underneath, the only area, any massage only really actually tighten the neck. Where the face sags it's the whole face that's slack, not the skin dropping away. Most of the massage book is involved in making the facial flesh more dense and firm, strengthening the bone structure. The neck, though is almost entirely a skin issue and responds dramatically to strong massage.

I'd suggest having Day 4 as a rest day, since you're doing day 3 and 4 in one go! Also be cautious about the Crush exercise. It pulls the cheeks in dramatically and not everyone likes the look!

Otherwise I'd only say, take it steady, don't scrutinise your face in the mirror, and trust the people who will notice you're looking great. You have a great attitude!

Good luck on this little adventure 😘😎 loulou x

Hi LouLou (or anyone else please chip in with your findings)

I have some questions…

I am going on holiday in 5 weeks and want to look my best. Should I follow the 4 day rotation (D1 exercises, D2 exercises, D3 massage, D4 rest) all the way through or should I follow your 30 day programme which seems to have daily work with massage?

With regard to moulding the bone, you say pressing can help mould inwards but some movements help grow bone density back - what’s the difference in types of bone manipulation? I ask because I want to know what I’m shrinking versus growing (pressing / tapping etc).

Are there any interventions for the slightly bulbous cartilage at the end on my nose? E.g. if i pinch it regularly will that encourage growth or encourage slimming or nothing?

Thanks!

Someone earlier in this thread asked if there was a way to tighten up body skin, like on the belly and arms; do certain massage techniques work? Like the ones from the facial routine?

I wondered about that too. Knees and underarm skin especially.

I guess the massage works on the skin itself (I'm about to start vigorous body brushing with a vitamin oil to follow so will report on progress) but skin on the face is attached to the muscle - so when you lift the muscle the skin moves with it. Not so on the body, from what I've read here...

Hi everyone, Snooky is quite right, the great thing about the face is that the skin is pulled tight by the muscles. The muscles of the body don't move the skin. But...

The skin is an organ in its own right. It responds to a challenge in the same way as a muscle, the heart or the lungs. You can tighten it significantly with firm and intensive handling.

It just so happens that I've just finished a book about this, with exercises for the skin of the body. It'll be on the Ageless site soon. Meanwhile, book yourself in for a heavy duty massage, and remember to pull your skin!

All best, loulou 😎
