Face slapping, pinching, rough treatment, is it good for the face as we age?

Well, it is a known fact that the more active your circulatory system is, the more nutrition and oxygen is transported to every cell in your body. In young, healthy bodies, this just happens naturally, but as we age we need to ensure that we are being active and not couch potatoes with less than optimal energy levels…. Obviously, if you have a severe heart condition, only your doctor’s advice matters….

So can face slapping help you maintain a youthful looking skin? Yes and No is the correct answer. Face slapping, or any rough treatment of the skin for that matter (like Eastern European facial massage treatments) will increase blood circulation and bring nutrition to skin cells so they operate at optimal and more youthful levels. Reducing wrinkles is easy…just slap any skin enough times and you create a low level of inflammation that naturally ‘swells’ the skin and ‘miraculously’ reduces the depth or appearance of wrinkles. The only catch is that you have to keep up with slapping your face because once the inflammation goes down the wrinkles will reappear.

The challenge for aging skin is a natural body process where collagen and elastin fibres in the skin become more fragile. Rough treatment can help damage them and thus cause the body to destroy those cells. Now, as we age, we tend to produce fewer new cells than the number that get killed off, so creating a deficit that is evident in sagging and wrinkled skin.  So why exacerbate the natural aging process of the skin? Topically you can stimulate more youthfully acting skin with Age Limit or similar type exfoliation appropriate for your skin, as well as collagen and elastin stimulating aloCell Gel, or with stem cell activating and DNA repairing Cell Youth Actif (though not recommended for very sensitive skin).

Treat your skin gently as you age. Do not use hot water on the skin. Do not be rough or aggressive with your skin. Eat a healthy organic diet (note processed food using lots of GMO ingredients, and Junk food that also use lots of GMO ingredients, are both not the least bit healthy). Exercise appropriately for you level of health and age. Be happy and try not to believe marketing hyped BS.
