Pilates teacher Carme Farré, 47, from London, devised the exercises she gives to hundreds of her clients in her private studio, and has also created an app, FaceToned®, that guides you through the movements.

Using special techniques demonstrated by Carme, the program shows how to work deep into the core of the facial muscles and then more superficial muscles around your face, creating a natural definition and a tighter and tighter appearance.

She told Femail: & # 39; It is based on the theory that we regularly train the muscles in our body, but the muscles in our face are often forgotten. By strengthening the facial muscles, we begin to reduce fine lines and loose skin. The technique focuses on the four most common concerns: the neck, cheeks, eyes and forehead. & # 39;

Carme reveals that we need to incorporate the exercises into our beauty routine – cleanse our skin, apply a serum to hydrate, do the exercises and, at the end, apply an oil to massage.

& # 39; For the massage, I recommend using a Gua Sha or Face Roller, as this helps to improve blood circulation and improve the results of the exercises, & # 39; admits Carme.

The Pilates teacher, who has been doing the exercises for more than 10 years, says that you only have to do them for 10 minutes a day and, once you have learned the techniques, you can do it at home, in the car or at the train. & # 39;

Here, Femail reveals four of the most important exercises that you have to do every day …

About the reason the exercises work, she said: & I have always loved sports and when I discovered facial exercises it was a revelation to me. & # 39;

& # 39; It seemed perfectly logical that exercising your facial muscles in the same way could lead to a more youthful appearance than when we train the muscles in the rest of our body.

& # 39; I started with facial exercises at the age of 35, but FaceToned® is suitable for anyone of any age who wants to prevent aging, strengthen their muscles in the face or rehabilitate.

# Exercise is one of the most powerful anti-aging methods possible for the body, and the same goes for the face.

& # 39; By practicing our facial muscles, we can increase muscle tone and volume, leading to a more youthful appearance. & # 39;

The FaceToned® app is now available in the Google and Apple app stores.
