Pre wedding vanity - how to look your best on your wedding day

If there’s one thing you’ll take away from your wedding day it’s the photographs. Even decades later you’ll want to show off you’re wedding photos to your children and their children. That’s why it’s so important to look your best on your big day and although many people will go on a diet or start an exercise program, there’s one part of your body that requires a different set of exercises – you face.
Our body’s natural response to exercise means it’s possible to transform how we look without the risk or the worry about going ‘under the knife’.

When our muscles are worked regularly and repeatedly, their condition improves. The tiny myofibrils that make up each muscle fibre plump up and the nerve signals become more efficient. The strength of muscles literally increases. It doesn’t matter what age you are, scientific research shows an 80 year old man can increase his strength by 35% with weight training. It’s never too late!
Just like body muscles, facial muscles become healthier and tighter with exercise, which causes them to lift. With the right program, all the signs of aging are reduced, leaving you looking great for your wedding day.

Faceworks facial exercises use gentle strength training to improve the fitness of facial muscles, without overbuilding them.  As the muscles respond to the exercises, the nerve impulses that make the fibres contract become stronger. With frequent exercise the resting tone of the facial muscles increases and they become ‘tighter’ and firmer. It has a huge impact on the look and feel of the face.

The size and shape of muscles is governed by the natural regeneration process. We’re not talking about bulking muscle up; such as in body building, just the body’s ordinary ability to replace tissue. Muscles grow by a process of damage and repair, though it’s not the kind of damage you would be aware of. Exercise causes microscopic damage to the muscle fibres. The tiny tears in the muscle stimulate the body’s natural repair process: protein, hormones and nutrients combine to build bigger fibres that are able to cope with the increased workload.

Healthy muscles have a higher resting tone, a shorter, more compact shape and the strength to respond to demand more completely. Smaller, firmer and tighter muscles produce the facelift. Facial contours are defined, smoothed and rejuvenated.

Although the process of carrying out facial exercises before your big day may seem like a lot of hassle, but when you look back at those wedding photos you know all that hard work will have been worth it.
