Chin Up Intro

Keep Your Chin Up

Our face is the first thing people see, so it is little wonder that we are so obsessed with keeping it looking young. So, what if I told you that you could minimize wrinkles, lift your eyes and skin, and keep your skin and eyes glowing without surgery? For free?

Americans spend over $16 billion annually on cosmetic plastic surgery and over $62 billion on cosmetics, which includes skincare, hair care, make-up, perfumes, toiletries and oral cosmetics.  WOW!

Keep Your Chin Up, illustrates exercises for your face and eyes and provides other tips to help minimize wrinkles and keep you looking young.

In the early 1980s, I read an article on exercises for your face.  The article talked about all these little muscles around our eyes, our mouth, our cheeks, and our necks, and that we can do exercises to keep them lifted instead of letting gravity drag them down. Kind of Up Tight and Outta Sight!

I’d heard, “It takes 13 muscles to smile and 33 to frown,” so face exercises made sense to me! I’ve modified and practiced these exercises regularly over the years and I know that they have made a big difference for me.

Around the same time, I read an article on eye exercises and started practicing those as well. Today, at 68, I only wear glasses for driving at night, I’ve never had Lasik, and I still do not need readers. I do juice a LOT of carrots . . . but that’s another discussion!

So, here they are . . . face exercises and eye exercises.  I’ve also included tips on how to keep your teeth, hair, and skin healthy, and how to get rid of pesky allergies that seemed to crop up out of nowhere!  


A couple months ago, a young friend of mine tried the exercises while reading. She said that after doing the exercises she could feel her face muscles . . . and they felt tired! It reminded her of a night of uncontrolled laughter with dear friends when the next morning her cheeks hurt from laughing so much!

Moral of the story:  Keep laughing and stay young!
