The premise of the book is that just as we can exercise and tone our body's muscles, we can do the same with our facial muscles, which can ultimately make a marked difference in our appearance and can potentially eliminate the need for invasive plastic surgery.
If you are getting a mental image of a little face gym with tiny barbells and treadmills, you aren't the only one, that's what I was thinking too - luckily the idea makes me smile which the book highly recommends - smiling works 25 facial muscles! No tiny gym needed though, just your face and the movements from the book which you will find on each page with clear instructions and a photograph to demonstrate the movement for 30 exercises.
Will you look like a total goofball doing them - yes indeedy! I do NOT recommend doing it in front of your spouse if he is the mocky type like mine and make sure there is no one nearby with a cellphone threatening to take pictures and post them on instagram! This is the kind of thing that is best done in private with no witnesses - like when you scarf down a whole box of donuts by yourself!
I have no idea if this has really made any improvements to my face but I have to say, making silly faces does improve my mood and as my husband will tell you, that can only be a good thing!
