Hi snooky 😎
I'd go with the 30 day programme, provided you allow enough time for your face to rebuild with the new tissue before you leave. Your normal programme is fine, and since you haven't been overworking your face, it will withstand a little more intensity as a boost before your holiday. Do it now though, not just before you leave 😊

The bone massage won't change the shape of the bone, but it will maintain density and prevent the bone from shrinking. In all cases, pressure on the bone from tapping, pressing in or rubbing with pressure will perform the same service as weight-bearing exercise for the body.

I've not worked specifically on cartilage to answer your question from experience. There's very little research available, i.e. None! Please do try though. It'd be fascinating to see how you get on.
Hugs,
Loulou 😘Xx

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 😎

Thank you so much LouLou. I have always manhandled my own face - love to scrub with a hot cloth -
simply because it feels good to do so, but the eye area and neck... I've totally shyed away from touching but can't wait to dive in with the programme now. Will post again as I progress - am sure I'll have more questions!

Hi snooky,

Yes, I'm glad you've experienced that, the face feeling good after robust treatment. It's because the skin has been quietly yearning for stretching and intense massage. It will show dramatic results before you know it

Ok so last night was day 10 of the 30 day programme (because I counted the first 4 days of starting as first four days of this!) and, well, I'm looking a little ropey! Lol... not massively so and certainly not enough for me to panic and stop. I put makeup on today to cheer myself up and did the mirror protocol and am ready to continue...

My million dollar question is... when is it likely to look better? Collagen takes 4-6 weeks doesn't it? Would welcome any comments from people who have done this 30 day programme Smile

Snookydoops, . Once you're repaired (at most a couple of days), you'll look younger, prettier, healthier. Have faith because the transformation happens for everyone.

if you're planning something, just stop when you think you're not looking your best and you'll soon see the good effects showing as you let it rebuild. Trust me, I've been there, as has every Ageless user. We all look great! Ballerina xx

can daily face scrub/mask have similar effect as massage? i'm doing a 30 day face mask routine with turmeric paste to reduce scars/heal skin..and during my 2-week break from Ageless massage/exercises..i didn't notice much uplift? i thought it would be enough time to notice some rebuilding but no... maybe the daily mask/scrub i've been doing during this break is not allowing skin to have full recuperation?

thanks loulou or anyone who can provide some insights?

Not Loulou but my take is no way can a mask/scrub have similar effects to exercises/massage. However why not do both? For me, masks are great (but Im dry skinned and 60 plus!). So my skin needs all the moisture it can get and seems to love natural masks and it definitely hydrates my skin.

However Im also doubtful masks can really lift the skin and muscles as they are good but they cant get at the muscles to tone and lift them unless you using one of those overnight enzyme kind of masks, which do tighten but you have to leave them on for a few hours. The tightening though doesnt create lift it simply tightens.

Whats made you want do do a 30 day mask challenge? Tumeric is great but with masks they kind of detox the skin (if you think of charcoal and clay masks) and so once you use them the process continues once you remove the mask somewhat. But doing it 30 days in a row I seem to recall someone saying encourages the skin and its oil turnover to be lazy. Not quite sure of the exact reasons why but seem to recall a youtube blogger saying she did it to clear her congested and oily skin, and she noticed within a few days of using it her skin produced more oil as a result of the masks every day and so she stopped and had to wait 6 weeks for her skin to revert back.

I just went to Lou Lou's site to see if the new body massage program she mentioned in a post recently was available and I got a forbidden error message. Just wondering if it's just me or if the site is down?

Thanks TheesaMary. i'm not doing mask for lift.. but for lightening scars. also i said scrub but it's really just a mask.. -i got nicked by a drill at dentist office and it left a scar below my lip. i read that turmeric can really help.. and also read somewhere that doing for 30 days can really improve skin quality and acne scars. so i decided to do mask to also lighten old acne scars. i do turmeric and honey.. sometimes add chickpea flour or sandalwood and lemon. also add some olive oil.. it's not drying at all.

i've done 3 weeks and it's lightened my scar so i think i'll just take a break. maybe i'll do again after a month and keep it to every few weeks.

yeah i diddn't think daily 20 min mask should have an effect..but i took two week break from ageless massage and exercises and dont feel my face recovered at all. i really thought my work would show some payoff but maybe my muscles havent' built up much..maybe it'll take a lot more in my case. i started in feb. or maybe i needed an even longer break.. like one month?

Speaking of which.. i had asked this previously a few times, in the Ageless book Loulou mentions that what works best for her is one month on one month off. i wonder if that may be better for me as well.. does anyone do this. Loulou do you recommend this for me since i didn't notice any change during the two week break? ie. my face look tired..dont see any cheek build or any change. i dont think i over exercised either.. i take weekends off.

Also TheresaMary or any others.. do you guys have problem with hands tiring when doing Day1 exercises? by the time i'm on the 'smile to ears" exercises i'm struggling to get through my hands get soar. any suggestions? i want to hold on tight, and i push into face..i use cloth so hands wont slip.. but my hand muscles tire.

thanks for any advice, and loulou please let me know if one month on one month off a good idea as you had said in your book. would love to know from others how long you exercise versus giving your face a break.
not sure if i should go back to exercising or extend 2week break by another week or two?

Thanks.

I think I may try the one month on one month off. Something I've been noticing is my face has firmed right up but I'm not sure I'm liking how it is looking. As I have a thin face and no bone structure to my cheeks I'm looking a little gaunt. I have ehlers danlos which gives me skin that is not very firm so I'm surprised that the exercises have sucked in the flesh of my cheeks. I am not doing the crush exercises and haven't for a few months now. Part of me is wondering if I need to have more protein? As with body building you would need to eat more protein to create build. For now I think I'll take a break from the exercises and see how things are not my face feels very different, perhaps this is a typical change before build can take place? X

Hi all,

Been eons since I've been here - and Lordy does my face show it!

Want to purchase the book etc and the aglessifyoudare dot org site seems down. Is there another location for purchase?

Thank you all : )

Hi Zibby,

I had a similar hiatus.

It may be worthwhile contacting Steve.

Alternatively, the loulou shop. I'm unable to post the external link for some reason. If you search ageless if you dare and loulou shop it should get you there. Date of publication is fairly recent, April 2017 but I cant vouch for the site as I bought mine from Ageless.

Let us know how you get on, im curious.

Hi snorkmaiden,
The Ageless exercises are designed to restore your face to its younger self. You *are* very young! Please don't keep overtraining your face in the hope of altering its basic structure... on a young person the muscles are already in peak condition. A little conditioning will give your face an added zing... forcing them to work over and over again isn't helpful.

Snorkmaiden, you are beautiful. Have faith in your face, take care of it for the future, but please don't punish it. Just think about your own face and don't try toforce it into something it's not.

Hugs,loulou

I just started doing facial exercises so I haven't seen much change yet, but my question is ... how often can I do them?

Also, and very importantly, I am on my computer working all day long and I tend to grind my teeth lightly or make a pouty face which I think contributes to my face getting droopy. Is there a face I can make or hold that would be beneficial. Like the clown smile with the lips pulled toward ears? I just need a face to make when I'm working so I don't make the faces I've been making.

Hi
Two of the files that were sent to me for the program will not open on my Android phone( Ageless Easy Ten and Ageless Massage). Do these two files need to be opened on a computer? Neither were PDF.

I cant see details of the body program you previously mentioned so guessing its not ready yet. Do you have an idea of when its likely to be?

Morning.
I did probably 15 days of the 30 day programme and then stopped before my hols so have come back and probably been a month off. Just started back up with a couple of days and stopped again because my puffy undereyes look really wrinkly. Should I continue to work through this or revert to an eye cream (which I've never really thought did that much) but honestly when I smile I look ancient!!
What courses of action Are open to me and what sort of results are likely with each? Thanks.

Guessing it was just another sales pitch - tempting folk and then vanishing again!! Seems to be quite common and is most annoying.

Tell people you have a new program and then vanish without telling them how to get it. It puts me off and I won't be purchasing now as a result.
