"I personally use the acupressure and toning techniques in Timeless Face before shooting to relax, tone and stimulate my facial expression. I have found the benefits are both immediate and long lasting. And who better to advise any woman on natural timeless beauty than Ellae Ellinwood." --Stephanie Seymour
"I especially appreciate how Timeless Face is not simply a "how to" book. It relates our faces to our entire lives and it shows how our emotions, our bodies and our spirits have dealt with our life's journey in our very own faces." --Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine
Timeless Face is a revolutionary approach to facial toning, one that enhances your face's appearance while it contributes to your inner tranquility and well-being.
Incorporating the time-honored techniques of Chinese face reading to identify what causes facial features to develop as we age, Ellae Elinwood demonstrates that it is simply not a fact of life that a forehead has to wrinkle, a mouth has to sag, and the eyes have to become baggy. Rather these are symptoms of emotional distress and lack of facial fitness, which can be treated and corrected through a simple program that combines acupressure and exercise. For example:
-Vertical lines between the eyebrows indicate confusion and concern. The Defrowner exercise not only smoothes lines and slows down the appearance of new ones, it also generates mental clarity and optimism.
-Dropping mouth corners and pouchy cheeks are signs of stress and loss of confidence. The Light-hearted exercise will lift those mouth corners as it lifts your mood, easing worries and increasing self-worth.
-Deep furrows between the nose and cheek can signal suppressed emotions and the strain of too much responsibility. The Erasing Cares exercise lessens those deep lines while it enhances your ability to communicate and negotiate on your behalf.
By following the simple, commonsense Timeless Face program, your face will look and feel more fit and more relaxed in just thirty days, and your entire being will be rejuvenated and revitalized.
Isn't it time for you to discover the face you were meant to mature with--your own Timeless Face?
