The aim? To stretch and define the oval of the face, which is prone to sagging and loss of tone. Place your palms on either side of your cheekbones and smoothe out towards the edge of your face. Hold for a few seconds. Repeat five times. The next step is to work the lower part of the face to avoid a double chin: place your tongue against the roof of your mouth, pull it back and contract for a few seconds. This relaxes the face and restores tone.
The aim? To minimise the furrows between our eyebrows that can give us a stern look. If your frown lines are vertical, smoothe them out horizontally using your index fingers, working out from the middle of your eyebrows. Repeat six times. If your frown lines are horizontal, place your index fingers between your eyebrows, apply a light pressure and smoothe up your forehead. Repeat six times. This is one to do before going to bed - it will relax your face and help you unwind for a good night's sleep.
The aim? Tone up cheek muscles that tend to sag and hollow out with age. Open your mouth, jut out your lips and open your eyes as wide as you can. Then gently apply pressure to your cheeks, working from right to left, up and down and along the lines that run from your nostrils to the outer edges of your lips. Finish of by slowly bringing your lips back into position. Try to do this two to six times a day, for 30 seconds at a time. You may feel a bit daft, but you'll soon see how well it tones up your cheeks.
