The facial muscles – more than thirty of them – are often called upon to express emotions, such as joy, sadness, anger, doubt, and disbelief. Over time, these constantly repeated expressions cause the contraction of the facial muscles even when they’re at rest. That’s why expression lines appear on the forehead and nose and around the eyes and mouth.
It’s possible to reduce these expression lines by following these tips:
Certain facial gymnastics exercises can naturally improve the appearance of the face and reduce expression lines by acting on both the muscles prone to sagging as well as those that lack tone. However, to see significant improvements, the expression lines mustn’t be too pronounced… and you have to be patient, practicing these facial exercises regularly over a long period. It’s also important to perform these exercises as naturally as possible without forcing the expressions so you don’t generate the opposite effect – that is to say, accentuate the expression lines.
At-home anti-wrinkle treatments
To treat expression lines, cosmetic products such as anti-wrinkle creams, serums, and masks complement each other perfectly to accelerate cellular regeneration and restore elasticity to the skin on your face. To notice their benefits, you must create a daily beauty ritual that consists of removing the makeup from the face and applying an anti-wrinkle serum, such as the Pro-Collagen Serum from Functionalab, as well as a moisturizing and rejuvenating cream, such as the Intense Hydration cream offered by the same company. Developed in Québec by a renowned team of scientists and dermatologists, these products are packed with top-quality active ingredients that are suitable for all skin types. And why not work in synergy by applying moisturizing or anti-aging masks on a regular basis? We love the one offered by Functionalab, which contains 5% glycolic acid: a must for deep-cleaning your skin and refining skin texture… to be used in the shower or afterwards, when the pores are fully dilated!
