Doing facial exercise resulted in substantial gauntness and added about 20 years to my apparent age. I stopped doing Flex Effect a few months ago and have been trying to consume healthy fat (almonds, avocados, EFA oils) but it has not helped.

I have great cheek definition -- yay -- but the tradeoff is not worth it. It's not easy for me to gain weight since I try to eat a healthy diet and I work out pretty rigorously.

Facial exercise is probably not a good idea for people who are on the thin side already.

i'm on the thin side, too..but really have not experienced gauntness from facial exercises...not sure why not...except as i posted earler on the thread i consume tons of minerals in a highly bioavailbale form (herbal decoctions, angstrom minerals, sea vegetable broths..or sea veggie extracts which are, imo, even more bioavailable)...i know we're not used to thinking about minerals for alleviating gauntness..but seems like it might be worth a try!

Also, do you ever eat chia seeds? (i know we're all dif constitionally..but that particular fat plumps up my face more than other fats do...again maybe worth a try...i use the whole seeds.. a days worth for me is 2 tbls soaked in a cup of water overnight(at least that long) then i add homemeade almond milk , spirulina and rosehip puree to mine...but if you drink dairy..some milk added is's kind of pudding-y so you can season as you'd like..also i use Salba brand chis..a bit more expensive than other chia seeds..but i know it 'works' for me.)

T-tapp is definitely one of my favourites, but there is another thing I use called No Lipo Lipo. It really depends on the area concerned. For me I always get fat buid up around my lower torso but I'm kind of pear shaped body and thats the regular bug bear for me. These two work really well. The No Lipo Lipo is a massage system for the whole body which I do, but after conversing with the author she said I could spend extra time on problem areas which is what I tend to do.

Theresamary, do you have any other recommendations regarding spot reduction? I have never heard of t-tapp, and will look into that, but you implied there are other methods too.

(I hope she is still around and sees this!)

Hello everyone,

Just bumping this thread because I was doing some research on face yoga destroying faces. I know there are many who swear by it, but I'm wondering if it's simply not the answer for everybody. I was doing exercises a few months ago, particularly the "Big O" exercise several times a day, and it did make my face extremely saggy and I noticed volume loss. I was devastated. The only way I was able to restore it was with cosmetic acupuncture (but the volume loss was not restored). I think people need to be extremely careful with these exercises. There is no way to restore this volume without surgery/fillers/fat transfer. So I'm stuck.

Anyway, just wanted to gauge some recent experience from other members Smile

Have a great day everyone!
