Lose 15 years from your face in just 10 minutes a day

You may go to the gym regularly to tone up your muscles, but are you neglecting the ones that most obviously affect your appearance?

Forgetting your facial muscles can lead to frown lines, drooping jaws and eye bags - far more noticeable than flabby thighs.

As we age, our face naturally slackens, but what if there was a way you could take 15 years off your face without resorting to surgery or treatments such as Botox? One woman claims she has the answer - facial fitness exercises.

Eva Fraser has taught thousands of men and women how to exercise their face and she knows her methods work - at 73 years old, she is frequently mistaken for somebody 20 years younger.

Eva's fans include skin care guru Eve Lom, supermodel Caprice and a host of other celebrities that she is too discreet to reveal! But converts all claim the exercises really work, lifting sagging jowls and giving skin a healthy glow.

Eva only started practising the exercises herself after she turned 50 years old, but she says you do not have to wait until then to start doing them.

'You don't wait until you are 50 to start exercising your body, so why wait until then to start exercising your face?' she says.

'Facial exercises also take less work than exercises for your body. What can you do in five minutes in the gym? But five minutes on your face makes a real difference.'

The question on every potential convert's lips is how long they should do the exercises for before seeing a difference?

According to Eva, everybody's muscles are different and will work at different levels. Older muscles have had longer to stretch so they will take longer to get back into shape.

However, she believes you should see a real difference in less than a month. 'If you are doing the exercises every day for about 10 minutes, your face will become stronger in four weeks. You can look up to 20 years younger in just six months,' she says.

The younger you start doing the exercises, the stronger your facial muscles will become and Its no use exercising your body if you are neglecting your face you will be able to hold back the signs of ageing for longer. But you can start doing them at any age as any exercise for your face is better than nothing at all.

'My clients tell me that after doing the exercises, people ask them if they have been on holiday or whether they have changed their make-up because they look so different. Some of them say it has changed their lives,' says Eva.

'The effects really are amazing. You can stay up all night and in the morning it will not look as if you have missed any sleep at all.'

If you would like to learn the secret of Eva's no-facelift facelift, follow the three exercises below.

For more exercises - and move onto an advanced workout - you can order Eva's books and videos at or by calling 020 7937 6616. You can also organise private lessons at her exclusive studio in London by calling the above number.

Here we bring you three exercises from Eva's Basic Workout. Practise each exercise four times a day. To begin with, this should take you five minutes, but when you are more confident, two minutes a day.

Before you begin...
Before doing the facial exercises, you need to do some warm up exercises to make sure you do not strain any muscles.

Choose a time during the day when you can relax and will not be disturbed. Sit quietly, breathing deeply, and feel the tension release from all the muscles in your body.

Start with some neck exercises. Keeping the spine straight, gently tilt the head forwards and then backwards three times. Keep your jaw relaxed and breathe deeply throughout.

Then twist your head from side to side to look over your shoulders. Do this three times but do not force the muscles while you are doing it - the movements should be gentle.

Next lower your right ear towards your right shoulder and hold for a count of five. Repeat on the left and do this exercise three times. Let the weight of your head pull you naturally down, do not force it towards your shoulders.

Now you need to exercise your eyes. Keeping your head still and using only your eyes, look up as high as you can and hold for a count of five. Then drop your eyes quickly and again hold for a count of five. Repeat three times.

Keeping your head facing forwards, look to the left and hold for a count of five. Then repeat to the right and perform the whole exercise three times.

Finally look diagonally up to the left and then diagonally down to the left. Do this exercise three times and then repeat on the right.

Now you are ready for your basic workout.
