As we age, our skin begins to lose it youthfulness. Facial exercises should be done daily to fight wrinkles and all other ageing signs. There are ten groups of muscles that make up the face and scalp, appearing on the forehead, in the cheeks, around the eyes, within the chin, around the lips, and finally in the neck. If the muscles are not exercised and toned, the face will sag and portray an older look. By toning the muscles in it, you can give your face smoother skin, a natural lift, a younger look, and an overall brighter appearance.

Most women want a big butt, but apart from having a big ass, we would also like it to be firm, not droopy. These exercises will help strengthen the buttocks, thighs and back. Before you begin, do a 6-minute warm-up routine and afterwards, cool down with a 5-minute stretch.
