 Look better without Botox

Jon Sandifer... is the country's leading pioneer in face yoga. ...he argues that removing tension from the face will reduce the appearance of wrinkles. He recommends the following exercises, which should be performed after you've dotted moisturiser around the relevant area.

The bridge (which helps wrinkles in between the eyebrows) Place your fingers on each side of your nose and gently rotate them in small circles, down along the length of it, and then back up. Breathe in as you rotate the fingers down, and then out as you move the fingers back up. Repeat four times.

The snake (for a fallen chin) With flat fingers, flick your chin from underneath with each hand in turn, breathing in and out deeply. Then, using small movements, rotate the fingertips along the jaw-line and back to the chin, breathing out as your fingers move up towards your ears, and in as you rotate them to the chin. Repeat eight times.
