We have all heard the phrase “glow of youth”. It is considered that the shining, full leather – the attribute of youth. Subsequently, the woman can only maintain the “glow” of the glow of beauty treatments.
In Chinese medicine the radiance and beauty of your skin contact not with age, but with the energy content of the body. The more women of strength and energy, the more full and beautiful her skin is. What determines the number of our forces? Of course, proper nutrition, quality sleep and the ability to enjoy pleasant things. The most devastating phenomenon that takes kilotons of energy is a strong emotion. Therefore, the first and basic way of maintaining overall health and skin health in particular is a skill to smooth out the emotional extremes. For this it is necessary to master one of the meditation practices or exercises that allow you to delve into yourself at least 15 minutes a day to disconnect from the hustle and bustle. The lessons can be periodically replaced with a beauty treatment or aromatherapy bath. Importantly, for total relaxation you could not disturb on the phone, email or importunate knocking at the door. So, how to get rid of wrinkles under the eyes and not just at home?
The mimic muscles of the person is formed from the same germ layer, and the whole nervous system. Therefore, our facial expressions are directly tied to emotional state. What we are calmer and more cheerful the better look. The more often you smile, the better the mood. The relationship works both ways, so I recommend a more irresponsible attitude to the smile. What does it mean? Do not wait for the reason to smile. “No smiles without love,” behavioral motto of many men. We, the ladies to smile, a reason is not needed. How to get rid of wrinkles on the forehead and other parts of the face? Learn to smile for no reason and expectations, and this ritual will fill the body with extra energy, tone up facial muscles and improve your mood.
Exercise. A sense of inner, free, and liberating smiles you can create by using simple exercises. Touch the corners of his eyes and imagine that you tie them to the rope. Pull the rope up from the lips to the temporal bone, hold your fingers on the temples, “fixing” this invisible connection. Repeat the exercise several times: first with the corners of his lips, then the outer corners of the eyes and eyebrows. This exercise is done for the most part in the imagination and affects the change of the background mood – and over time, it radically changes the facial features.
When a person is stressed, they compress the jaw joints. It is a physiological fact to which we are not accustomed to pay attention to: in the flow of emotions is not to care about the person. Compression of the jaws not only adds to the overall tension of the body, but also forms such a structure of the face, which with age, positive emotions does not cause. Hypertonicity of the mandibular joint by 1-2 mm shifts of the frontal bone downwards, the eyelids SAG “flows” double chin and increase the nasolabial folds.
Exercise. Try an experiment: in a time of emotional stress (fight with a colleague or a loved one), remember this article and try to relax the lower jaw. Will look slightly silly: it is an action which is described as “his jaw dropped”. But abruptly (unpredictable!) will decrease emotional tension of the moment, it will be possible to look at what was happening and even look face will become more friendly and open.
How to get rid of wrinkles under the eyes and not only
Swollen face, loose skin, bags under the eyes are symptoms of poor lymph drainage from the head. As soon as we will establish, the skin will get the opportunity to intensively cleanse, increase metabolism.
Lymph flowing from the face to the ears and down the neck and subclavian lymph nodes. Accordingly, the more relaxed the neck, the more flexible and free the cervical spine and the more intense is lymph flow.
Exercise. Remember the exercise that we all did in school physical education: the rotation of the head? Do it, it’s just much more slowly – for 10 accounts to one side, for 10 accounts to another. The goal of this exercise is to relax the muscles of the neck and the seventh cervical vertebra (where the neck attaches to the thoracic vertebra). The more slowly you do the movement, the deeper into relaxation. Regular performance of this exercise, ideally exercise program “Youth and health of the spine”, aimed at structuring the whole body, allows to restore skin facial glow and maintain it, regardless of age.
Lymphatic drainage facial massage. In the morning after washing and applying moisturizer make a simple facial massage: soft Pat move from the center to the ears. First, from the nose to the ears, then from the center of the chin, in finale from the center of the forehead. Patting, visualize that you are hitting the water surface – thus movements are gentle and yet effective. Doing this massage for a minute, place two fingers on the chin and move it down to the neck. Hitting the “dimple” under the chin – hyoid region, here hold my fingers for 20 seconds. It is through this point passes the flow of lymph, and its gentle pressure as if you open the “tap” through which lymph flows down. Repeat the entire procedure from beginning to end 2-3 times.
The techniques of acupressure
About Chinese acupuncture heard a: active points governing the flow of energy in the body, affected needles or moxibustion. Acupressure – similar effects, in which the active points of pressure. To influence the point should have hard enough, but without fanaticism and pain sensation should be pleasant.
Acupressure effect relaxes the muscles of the face and scalp, builds the harmonious structure of the face and as a side effect – has a calming effect on the nervous system.
1. Region of the first cervical vertebra. Move your fingers along the neck up, while under your fingers will not be two “bump”. Our goal – scoring of these “bumps”. Push on them for 20-30 seconds, feeling the flow of the muscles of the neck and head, heavy jaw and relaxes the jaw joint.

To find it, put your index fingers on the orbital bone around his temples and move it to the nose. About half way find the most projecting point is “area”. Impact for 20-30 seconds.
To whiten and refresh skin of Chinese women use rice water: boil the rice in plenty of water, drain the broth, cool and wash them after basic cleansing.
Also a great rejuvenating effect give the correctly selected essential oils. I recommend to add few drops of essential oil to your moisturizing cream: a jar of gold – 10-20 drops. Here are some recommendations on the selection of essential oils give aromatherapy treatises:
