What are the gestures to adopt?
To begin, stand in front of your mirror to visualize the movements, take several deep breaths, then exhale to relax. Repeat each of the following exercises five times in a row:
Exercise to smooth the eye area
Apply our Shea Anti-Aging Eye Cream and make delicate pressure movements with the fingertips, starting from the inner corner of the eye to the hairline at the level of the brow bone then at the top of the cheekbone.
Exercise to reshape the oval of the face
Tilt your head slightly downward and place both of your closed fists under your chin. For 3 to 5 seconds, push with your face against your fists and apply counter pressure with your fists.
Exercise to plump up and smooth lips
Pronounce the letter O and U with exaggeration. Then spread a few small pearls of our Shea Hydrating Day Cream on the edges of the lips and massage in circles.
These exercises will stimulate microcirculation and boost collagen production to tone the skin.
