How to give yourself a mini facelift - motherhooddiaries

As you age, your skin will begin to lose its elasticity in the lower part of your neck and face, especially when you experience that dreaded sleep deprivation and overall stress that comes with parenting. There are ways that you can give yourself a mini facelift in as little as a few minutes per day. And, if you are considering surgery, make sure you take into account some natural remedies to lift and tighten the skin below too.

What is a Mini Face Lift?

A non-surgical facelift means to firm, lift and tighten the facial skin and give your face a more youthful appearance through facial exercise, beauty masks, and various other facials. A surgical mini facelift involves techniques which are comparable to the Liftstyle Lift, S-Lift, Botox, eyelid surgery, or the Quick Lift. The main differences are that these surgical procedures are not as invasive or as expensive as a traditional facelift and use smaller incisions and stitches in order to minimise the scarring that appears. Whether you are trying to tighten the skin through non-surgical means or opting for surgery similar to an actual facelift, this post will concentrate on the non-surgical ways of getting a mini face lift.

Using a homemade natural face lift mask

Face mask - motherhooddiaries


Facelift masks may be the most natural non-surgical way to get a natural lift on the face. Naturalfacecares.blogspot.co.uk list a range of Non-Surgical Face Lift Mask recipes that you can concoct in the comfort of your own home. Our favourite is the Avocado and Honey Homemade Face List Mask. The Avocado leaves the skin soft, supple and smooth while the honey and egg firms and tightens the loose skin. Mix 1 avocado, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 egg white to make a paste. Leave on the skin for 15 – 20 minutes and then wash off with warm water. The full recipe and other face lift mask recipes can be found here.

CACI Microlift Facial at home or at the salon

You may or may not have heard of CACI Non-surgical facelifts but they have been voted as one of the best anti-ageing treatments available in the market today. The treatment helps to tighten any sagging muscles and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery. CACI Microlift machines use micro-currents to stimulate the facial muscles in order to lift and tighten the skin. The more you do it, the more noticeable the facelift becomes. Many clinics, spas, and salons offer CACI facials at a dear price. However, you can purchase the machine and work through the steps yourself. Lots of stars like Barbara Windsor, Gillian Taylforth, Dale Winton, Cliff Richard and Jennifer Lopez regularly use it and they all look so much younger than their age. I have since bought myself a CACI Microlift machine and will check whether it works to lift my skin. Click here to purchase a machine or find a salon that offers CACI facials.

Facial exercises

Facial exercises work to tighten the muscles behind the facial skin, just like working out your body makes you lean and toned. There are a number of internet sources that claim their series of facial yoga moves will help to tighten and firm up the skin. Danielle Collins, a renowned yoga expert, has come up with five facial exercises that claim to improve the face and neck after two weeks. After two to four months, you will notice less fine lines and tension on the face. The five exercises are:

1. The V – Good for dropping eyelids, crow’s feet, eye bags and puffiness

2. The Smile Smoother – Good for cheek lines and sagging skin

3. Smooth the brow – Good for horizontal forehead lines

4. The flirty eyes – Good for deep eye hollows and drooping eyebrows

5. The Giraffe – Good for lines and loose skin on the neck.
