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.

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?

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 😎

I've been lurking since 2007 at least and the disappearing act is the thing that gets on my nerves when someone advises there's a new part to the program.

Hi all,
Sorry, several reasons why the new programme isn't up. Steve is currently walking the Camino route pilgrimage in Spain and staying in dormitories in little villages.

My family and I are in Cornwall on holiday and omg there's no wifi signal in the remote cottage we're renting. So, the last fortnight has been very dry in terms of communication.

There's a video that will be available from the site as soon as I get home, probably Friday.

Writing this from a Cornish pub, the Wellington Arms in St Just.

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.


Hi snooky, sorry for the late reply.
You can take either course. On the one hand, working through the phase won't cause you any permanent damage, but on the other you will still need to take time to recover at a later date. I'd be inclined to rest now, allow your good work to show on your face and then begin again, but only because it's more encouraging. In terms of effectiveness, both approaches have the same great outcome in my experience.

Well done staying with the programme. You'll soon see the rewards.

Loulou

Hi Loulou me again! I think you're right I do need to just prevent rather than try to change my face. I haven't been exercising at all for about two months now and my face is still not looking good. I have lost a lot of volume especially on my cheeks. Do you know how long it normally takes to repair? I am worried I have ruined my face

hi snorkmaiden,
It's a rule of the universe that the more you look at yourself the more faults you see, not least because your expression is depressed and lacking the dynamic beauty that comes when you hold it proudly. I'm as prone to this as anybody, being constantly photographed makes me aware of how my face doesn't measure up to the high standards you see in the media. I'm guessing that nobody has noticed the faults you're seeing.

Facial exercise causes the volume of the face to increase, just as doing bicep curls will.
My only question is about the Crush exercise. This does pull your cheeks in dramatically, but like everything else it will reverse itself if you leave it out.

I'd suggest doing the day 1 exercises, which have no side-effects, and work on lifting your face and your spirits 😘 xx

Snorkmaiden, lou Lou knows what she is talking about! Your face will look better than ever when it is properly rested. Dont be put off because you overtrained, the program will do your face nothing but good trust me! Ive had all the same doubts as you but ended up looking and feeling so much better!

Hello! I am new here!
I am from the Netherlands and bought ageless after reading a lot about face exercise and I believe in it. This seem for me the most suitable program because its not a lot time consuming.
I am 38, I always hear I look younger about near 30, so thats nice but I see always faults haha like louise said here above. I lost some fat since my 20's on the cheecks. I have a a small face and have a little hole at the place of the risorius. Is it better to leave the crush exercise out?
I also have a sharp jawline already and would like it less sharp
Laughing

Any advice before I start the program?
I hope to build up the cheeck to compensate the fat loss.

Thanx! Nice greetings from Holland
(sorry my English is not perfect)

Why don't you invest in a Mi-Fi mobile hot spot so you can keep in touch with your customers wherever you are. They are not very expensive. I think that anyone with a business should own a a mi-fi.

Deborah An, your English is lovely! Nice greetings is a great phrase; I'm going to use it Cool

Yes, leave the Crush exercise out if you don't want to sculpt your face. The Day 1 exercises will bring the youthful shape back to your face. A lot of what seems to be volume loss is actually volume redistribution, and you can get the meat back on your cheeks by lifting it from where it's settled. And of course working the cheeks with resistance will increase the thickness and density of the muscles.

Ageless will tighten your jaw, but from the sounds of it your jaw can't really get any tighter. The exercises will lift the bulk from the bottom of your face, and that makes the area look smoother and more balanced.

Bon voyage!
Loulou Very Happy Very Happy

Oh I really dont see where my facial fat in the cheecks went because its not in my jaw or neck
Very Happy

I have another question. I dont know how to really explain, but its about the frown area. I dont have really visible lines there but the skin seems loose there and it less quality skin than te rest of my face, its if it is not attached to the muscle. The skin is also thin there. Would it help to grasp it and tug it a lot, the way you describe in the massage part of the book?

I also read of the splash of cold water in the book.



Quote:
It is known that people who spend significant time in cold water retain more body fat than average as they get older, presumably because the body lays down a layer of fat to insulate itself from the cold. Olympic swimmers are a different shape from Olympic track and field athletes or other sports competitors. They have the same muscularity, but the lines of the body are sleeker and the shapes of the muscles is less pronounced: body fat.
For the face this would be fantastic, as fat in the face looks youthful and pretty. It’s worth making the face cold a couple of times a day to give the facial fat something to think about.


It reminds me I read about skin icing.I wanted to post a link but I cant because I am new. But The Healthy Home Economist has an article about it.

Hi Deborah An,

Thank you for the icing information. I tried it out this morning and my face looked instantly refreshed and firmer, will definately continue doing this.

I am not in a position to advise regarding massaging your face but I know for sure it has helped to thicken the skin on mine. The skin on my neck felt thin and as you described, not attached to muscle but with tough love it has improved. Still very much a work in progress but it has done no harm only good.

All the best,

Bauble

Sxy is a tricky beast but it pays to be persistent.

Try using a cloth or tissue to help grab the flesh. I use hooked index fingers either side of the mouth, on the bows and then utilise thumbs to gather as much flesh as i’m able. Once grabbed, yank the flesh forward to stop it slipping away and then start snarling.

Using tissue is the key to the groove, I found.

Yes, thats exactly it as keeping traction with the grip is nigh on impossible and thus prevents full muscular activation.
Will try your method and see how it goes, thanks.

Hi Deborah an and bauble,

Bauble, thank you so much for your advice to Deborah An, I love that you went to the trouble of posting your experience and I'm glad the tough love approach is repaying your bravery!

The forehead skin is very much stuck to the muscle, which is why flattening the muscle with Botox is so effective. You can either do that or improve the condition of the muscle so that it snaps back into its resting state properly, so that it lies flat and holds the skin taut.

Forehead exercise yields results only after a long period of increased puckering while the muscles adapt to the extra scrunching entailed. You can bypass the side effects to a large extent by breaking down the muscle without making the expression. This means vigorous physical work on the area, which will benefit skin and muscle provided you allow a week for the new muscle to build Cool

All best wishes, loulou 😊

Hello,

I am a new member.
Have been interested in facial exercises for years.
Last week I ordered the Easy Ten package from the Ageless website.
However, I received only 3 downloads (out of 5):
1. Easy Ten e-book
2. Lulu Massage e-book
3. Massage DVD download

I was hoping to receive a DVD download for the facial exercises, since a book is never enough. So is there a DVD with the exercises? and what does this whole package include?
Tried to contact Steve a few times, but no reply from him yet.

Thanks!!

I see that the program has been updated since I purchased it, but mine did come with a downloadable dvd of LouLou demonstrating each exercise. It took most of the guesswork out of finger positioning, facial movements, etc. and really helped me learn to do the exercises correctly. Keep emailing Steve - I am sure you will receive one.
