Last week, we received a hot lead on an all-natural body treatment developed by Carole Maggio called “no lipo lipo.” It targets cellulite through a special type of knuckle massage. Some women swear by it.
But before I investigate “no lipo lipo,” I’m excited to try another treatment Carole developed called Facercise.
As many of you know, my face has been through a difficult time over the last few years as I dealt with my fluoroderma. Now that my skin is clear, I’m noticing that my face looks subtly different than it did the last time I had clear skin, before I moved back to the fluoridated U.S. in 2008. I’m hoping Facercise can help bring back that more youthful appearance.
Facercise is a series of facial exercises designed to decrease sagging skin and wrinkles by improving muscle tone in the face. I just finished reading Carole’s book and I’m excited to take the Facercise challenge. Carole claims women see results after just 7 days on her Facercise program. She recommends taking before and after pictures (front and profile) so you can better judge the effects.
Below are instructional videos for each of the 14 exercises Carole recommends in the basic Facercise regimen. Once you learn the moves, it takes about 11 minutes to run through the whole routine. She says to complete the exercises in this exact order twice a day to see the best results.
Is anyone up for taking this challenge with me? Don’t forget to take before and after pics so we can see if Facercise really works!
*UPDATE: Carole’s videos have since been removed from YouTube, so I am posting a different set of facial exercises here. I hope you enjoy them!
Exercise #1: Tone and Lift Cheeks

Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
