So why do we spend so much time tending to the areas of our body that we keep covered up all day in clothing, and blatantly neglect the most exposed section of skin on our faces? Yes, we slather on specially formulated soaps, scrubs, and serums to maintain its exterior glow, but what about what lies beneath? Stop automatically turning to plastic surgery to downsize your jowls or open your eyes, and give your facial muscles a stress reducing, muscle toning, skin tightening workout!
