Fashion Flash Book Review: Facial Magic by Cynthia Rowland
I am often asked why I started to publish No-Nonsense beauty Blog. My reply? I wanted to share the most effective beauty advice and alert people to products and ideas that are ineffective, overpriced or even dangerous.
One of the most persistant beauty myths is the need for vigorous facial movements which are often recommended to erase signs of aging. In reality movements like blowing out your cheeks or wiggling your eyebrows actually stretches out collagen and increases wrinkling. By contrast, the isometric exercses of Facial Magic, tones and strengthens the skin much they work for the body.
I became a fan of Facial Magic when I saw Cynthia Rowland lecture at a NYC Beauty Expo. When she demonstraed her justly famous eyebrow exercise, I was stunned to see immediate results that lasted for hours. Just imagine the outcome if done regularly!
Cynthia Rowland has a seamless, mindblowing knowledge of facial muscles. She explains how each muscle works, illustrates how to do each exercise, and what results can be expected. Facial Magic begins with a practicial guide to basic skin health. From diet and stress to harmful cosmetic ingredients and nutritional supplements, Rowland believes that solid heath practices coupled with facial exercises are essential for a radiant complexion.
