    Not everything you do will break the bank. A tube of wrinkle-fighting, skin-firming prescription Retin-A may run about seventy-five dollars, for instance, and will easily last three or four months. That’s something most people can afford and although it takes two or three months for its smoothing effects to show, patience is your only other investment.

    Facening, or face training, is promoted by individuals in the United States on web sites, in books, and on DVDs. Classes may be offered via web cams or at some gyms and spas. Some approaches, such as Revita-Yoga, are yoga-based.

    Some instructors recommend practicing for up to 15 minutes per session to avoid overtiring the muscles. Some promote short workouts of five moves, while others offer a regimen of more than 20 exercises per session.

    Exercises include various moves, such as closing and opening each eye, raising eyebrows, puckering the lips, opening the eyes wide, and tilting the chin while lifting the tongue.

    Some web sites provide complimentary exercises or training, while others require payment.

    Many instructors ask clients to practice in front of mirrors. This helps the client see whether the exercises are being done properly.

    Many advocates promise results within weeks, with more dramatic results over months. Most promotions say to expect a tightening of skin and muscles that may lead to a more youthful and healthier appearance. Some make extreme promises, such as "erase 10 years in 15 minutes a day."

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

    Here are a few good facts that people should bear in mind:

    • As we age, lack of sleep affects us more deeply and shows up more prominently on our faces (which explains why dark circles, fine lines, and pallid complexions aren’t a problem in our twenties despite the late nights, but can be later on).

    • Sleep induces the production of collagen, a key ingredient in firm, youthful skin.

    • The skin’s capacity to hold water is enhanced by sleep, thereby keeping skin moisturized and supple.

    • Sleep deprivation can sting the immune system, leaving one vulnerable to rashes and skin-related problems.

    • Growth hormone peaks during deep sleep, and this hormone plays a central role in initiating cellular repair.

    Sagging skin is primarily the cause of loss of elasticity and the aging process. The amount of collagen is reduced and the elastin in diminished with aging. This is one reason why so many skin care products are composed of collagen or induce collagen formation. The gravitational descent of the skin and underlying muscle create major facial skin laxity. The most common aging skin problems include prominence of the nasolabial fold, jowl formation, and the turkey neck (platysmal banding under the chin). The goals of plastic surgeons include tightening these areas and enhancing volume to the facial regions showing atrophy.

    While there may be some benefits to anti-wrinkle creams, it's much more effective to protect your skin's health in other ways. Preventative measures may include protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure, quitting smoking, and following good general skincare habits. If you do decide to use them, there are some things to look for in an anti-wrinkle cream. Retinol, tea extracts, kinetin, hydroxy acids, and copper peptides are active ingredients in wrinkle creams that may help reduce wrinkles slightly. It is important to note that some of these ingredients may have side effects, and you may not see substantial results. Generally, anti-wrinkle creams should only be a small part of your skin care regimen if you do decide to use them.
