Faceworks Creator and Therapist Elaine Bartlett, Dip ITEC, Nut.Cert. is in her mid-50s and appears in all the face exercise videos. With 18+ years’ experience, she’s an expert in anti-aging naturally. Here’s what she says about Faceworks:
During my time as a therapist, I’ve learned being happy with how we look is more vital to our self esteem than most of us realize. It’s not vanity: it’s the basic need to feel good about who we are. In my therapy practice, the question: ‘I feel great, can you make me look better as well?’ was asked so often as clients got off the couch, I decided I’d better find out! Facial exercise quickly became the focus of my research. Faceworks took 2 years to create, test and trial with clients. That’s how I know the exercises work. It’s why I used myself in the videos: because you can’t retouch film. If the exercises didn’t work, it would be plain to see.
The Secret of Looking Fabulous
The last 8 years of running Faceworks has proved to me; beyond doubt, the true secret of looking fabulous is under your skin. It’s the condition of the underlying structure of the face that makes faces look tired – and old. Although most people would say they want to look younger, I think it’s more about looking good for the age you are, than turning the clock back.
“Even if you have the best skin products or the most expensive wrinkle cream, they can’t get deep enough into your skin to stop your face from sagging. Firm muscles mean firm, healthy skin and fewer lines and wrinkles”
When I began researching face exercises, I thought the results wouldn’t be as good as cosmetic surgery. I was wrong. The reality was astonishing: I discovered that dramatic changes were possible with facial exercise, so good in fact that people thought I’d had a surgical facelift.
3 months after I’d started using the exercises, I met up with a friend who I hadn’t seen for ages. She cornered me and whispered: ‘WHAT have you been doing? You look fantastic!’ She was convinced I’d had surgery. When I told her the changes were due to face exercise she wanted to know how to do it too!
Faceworks has been taught to clients in my therapy practice, to people in shops and in business meetings, to thousands of people with the online membership; and I still use the exercises to keep my own face toned and lifted. It’s no exaggeration to say that Faceworks has transformed my own confidence and personal happiness. I am not afraid of aging because I know I can still look naturally healthy and fabulous in years to come. It’s a great feeling to have.
Your body has the ability to regenerate itself naturally, it’s time to use it!
