How to combat the effects of aging in just 5 minutes a day. More than 50 muscles make up the structure of the human face, and to a large degree these muscles determine facial appearance. The muscles of the face can be exercised and toned just like skeletal muscles. With this new program a marked difference in appearance will be developed and will potentially eliminate the common desire and need for invasive plastic surgery. Too much sun, cigarette smoking, the degradation of collagen layers and poor skin create sagging facial muscles. Performing the facial gymnastics in this program on a regular basis will reverse a variety of concerns such as "empty" looking cheekbones, floppy jowls, relaxed eyelids, uncomely wrinkles and too much unwelcome elasticity. Catherine Pez prescribes a "facial gym" at home to exercise the muscles in the face with no special equipment -- just some diligence and discipline. The smile works more than twenty five muscles on the face -- so smiling is an important first step. The small and important Risorius muscle is in the corner of the mouth and if well stimulated, will correct a drooping mouth. This muscle also stimulates the other mid-face muscles thereby inflating the cheeks and nothing is as fresh and young-looking as well-accentuated cheekbones. Each exercise has clear instructions, with photographs that demonstrate the movements, so performing each exercise is easy and straightforward.

A Real Woman's Guide to Losing Weight, Looking Great, and Dressing Chic in the Age of the Celebrity Mom
Author: Janice Min
Pubpsher: St. Martin's Press
Category: Health & Fitness
In 2003, as the newly named editor in chief of Us Weekly magazine, Janice Min was busy documenting a seismic cultural shift: the making of the "Hollywood Mom." Think Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry, and Beyoncé—stars who proudly displayed their pregnancies, shed the baby weight overnight, and helped turn the once-frumpy bump industry into seriously big business. In the blink of an eye, it seemed, "skinny jeans" had replaced "mom jeans." Bugaboos had become status symbols. Motherhood itself had become an exciting style statement. And then—just eight weeks after her big promotion—Janice discovered that she was pregnant, too. "I started ogling, with morbid fascination, the photographs that flooded my office—red-carpet and paparazzi shots of celebrities in bikinis and bandage dresses mere weeks after giving birth," she writes. "I'd stare at my own ever-expanding body. Then I'd stare at Heidi Klum (who gave birth one month before my due date and managed to bounce back before I'd even hit the delivery room). How did these women do it? I wondered." How to Look Hot in a Minivan was born. With her trademark self-deprecating style and tongue-in-cheek humor, Janice set out to debunk some of Hollywood's biggest mommy myths. Then she brought together the industry's biggest experts in fitness, fashion, beauty, and all-things-baby to divulge the secrets behind the stars' seemingly effortless postpartum style. Serving up practical, honest, and often surprising advice for new moms everywhere, Janice and her arsenal of experts reveal: • The 10 Wardrobe Essentials every chic mom should own • How to style red carpet-worthy hair, even on school days • The secrets to hiding a postnatal stomach pooch • The truth behind the C-tuck (Do celebrity moms sometimes slim down courtesy of a combination cesarean section-tummy tuck?) • Hollywood's Biggest Losers (What did it really take for stars like Kate Hudson, Milla Jovovich, and Poppy Montgomery to lose the baby weight?) In How to Look Hot in a Minivan, Min dispels the idea that looking great post-pregnancy is only for the rich, the pampered, and the lucky. With Min's guilt-free, stay-sane strategies, moms everywhere can look and feel like stars—whether their baby is six months or sixteen years.
