These exercises for eye lifting and eyebrow lifting are powerful and should be applied ONLY when a particular contour problem is apparent and not as a preventive measure.
Sitting position. Mirror in front.
1. In 5 even steps move both eyebrows upward as far as possible. The point of possibility is when you see no more overlapping on your upper eyelids. In particular, pay attention to the sides of the lids and brows, since those muscles are thinner and more difficult to move.
2. Consciously return eyebrows in 5 even steps.
Frequency: As often as you wish until you have control over the muscles. PURPOSE: Moving designated muscles to their fullest range, approximately ½ to 3/4 inch, without tension or help
by surrounding muscles.
AIM: 10 steps; return muscles in 10 steps.
Once you have perfected the PRELIMINARY PRACTICE, proceed with the isometric exercise.
Look into mirror.
Elbows on table.
Step 1. With forehead relaxed, apply resistance to both of your natural brows from beneath by placing your four finger points under each brow at the location indicated on picture. The finger points must be directly on the brow but not in it. A resistance must always be kept gently-firm, since
otherwise, one may resist the resistance.
Step 2. With fingers push both eyebrows upward 10 their youthful original position, and hold them there gently firm as a resistance.
Step 3. Against this resistance try to move your brows down in gradual repetitious attempts; then try to move your forehead down from the very lop and at last close your eyes tight
Step 4. Return muscles to starting position.
Step 5. Remove finger resistance.
AIM: 10-12 steps, closing eyes tightly for 6 counts; return muscles in 10 steps.
Frequency: Once a day 5 times in succession. Hands must be removed and results observed after each performance.
WHENEVER ONE WISHES TO CORRECT A CONTOUR FAULT ONE MUST APPLY THE APPROPRIATE RESISTANCE EXERCISE:
ONCE DAILY- FIVE OR SIX TIME IN SUCCESSION. APPLY YOUR EXERCISE PROGRAM FIVE SUCCESSIVE DAYS A WEEK AND THEN PERMIT THE MUSCLES TWO DAYS OF REST. ONE MAY FOLLOW AN EXERCISE PROGRAM FOR 3-4 MONTHS.
AFTER THIS PERIOD, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO STOP FOR ONE FULL MONTH. IF EXERCISED BEYOND FOUR MONTHS, A COUNTER FORCE WILL SET IN, AND THE OBTAINED RESULTS MAY
BE LOST. AFTER A ONE MONTH PAUSE, THE EXERCISES MAY BE RESUMED FOR ANOTHER 3-4 MONTH CYCLE. A PROGRAM OF 3-4 MONTHS EXERCISING, FOLLOWED BY A ONE MONTH REST PERIOD, MAY BE CONTINUED AS DESIRED.
Note: It is important that you do not look downward but straight ahead while you move the muscles out of the eyebrow and forehead. The aim must be to move the muscles out eyebrow and forehead STRAIGHT down and not inward as for scowling.
The basic principle of the method is to keep the entire face and body relaxed and to move the designated muscle group only.
To move a designated muscle group freely by its own effort, the surrounding muscles have to remain inactive and relaxed.
Tension hardens the nesh and makes it difficult, if not impossible, to be moved. Helping or
bracing the designated muscles by other muscles, relieves the ‘wanted ones’ from doing their job and one is not helping one’s face. Principle number two of the method, is to move a muscle to a count. Each count is a command of the mind to the muscle to move. Please do not count the movements but move on the count.
HAVE YOU PUSHED LINES INTO THE FOREHEAD SKIN FROM PUSHING UP
Remedy: Do this immediately after exercise.
a) Place four finger points flat above topmost line above brow and press against underlying bOlle tar resistance.
b) Against this resistance move gradually the forehead skin and eyebrows downward to the count at 8-10.
c) Close eyes for two counts, then slowly return the muscles to their starting position.
Results: Must be seen immediately.
Repeat: Until all lines have disappeared.
