Give Yourself a Facelift While You’re Driving in Your Car – Safe, Effective and Fun
Only in Boston would you combine driving your car and a face lift. That’s he growing trend of those who are trying to turn back the hands of time without surgery by doing “Facercise” in their cars and homes. Scrunching eye brows, doing nose lifts and power lip puckers are but a few of the exercises that one can follow along on their CD or DVD.
Carole Maggio, CEO of Facercise joins Craig to discuss her synergistic series of facial exercises and how they can keep you looking young longer without surgery.
“I call it the anti-Botox boom,” says Carole Maggio, creator of the facercise program and a internationally known skin and facial consultant who runs the Carole Maggio Spa in Redondo Beach, California. “Botox deadens the muscles to relax them and erase wrinkles but Facercise does the opposite. It strengthens muscles to shape fuller lips, lifted eyebrows, wide open and vibrant eyes, a shorter nose as well as a chiseled chin, neck and jaw line.” And they do it in their cars as well. “It’s a great way improve your appearance and feel like your commute was productive.”
Maggio says “facercising” is more effective than cosmetic surgery and many facial problem areas can be toned with simple movements.
For example, raising your eyebrows up and down at least five times is actually an “eye enhancing exercise” that strains your muscles and makes your eyes bigger in no time.
For a plump pout, Maggio suggests flexing the corners of your mouth, “like you’re sucking on a lemon” and pushing on the corners with your thumb and index finger until you “feel the burn.”
For a perky schnoz, “nose pumps,” where you pinch your nose with one hand and pull your upper lip with the other hand should do the trick.
Although driving while facercising seems odd, Maggio argues, “You exercise your nose while most people are picking theirs. At least you can be constructive during your drive.”
The Facercise trend is not just in California. Maggio says that the largest customers of her DVD and CD are in Japan. “Japanese women are real believers in using non-invasive means to look better,” she said. “There is no down
side to trying the exercises before you consider other more drastic measures to look and feel better. It also costs a fraction of what more invasive measures would.”
“Just as a body builder can use weight training to isolate and develop certain muscles in his or her body, a particular facial feature can be developed and accentuated by performing a specific facial exercise. After five days of Facercise, men and women see a younger face smiling back at them in the mirror.”
Just as Botox and other injectibles are becoming a growing choice for many women, many others cannot afford the treatments let alone a full face lift. But they can spend time in their cars, trying to look younger one mile at a time.

Carole Maggio, considered “the world’s foremost authority on facial exercises” has devised a series of synergistic exercises which she has successfully taught to hundreds of thousands of clients world wide. In 1995, as an answer to thousands of questions regarding her techniques, she authored the best selling book, FACERCISE®. This book continues to be a top selling item in bookstores worldwide. She has also produced two DVDs and two CDs to demonstrate her FACERCISE® techniques.
Ms. Maggio has a legion of supporters among the medical professionals worldwide. She has had numerous testimonials from many plastic surgeons who support her belief that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Her credo is to address the causes of facial aging, not to just treat the symptoms.
Ms. Maggio long ago discovered that through proper exercises, one can strengthen and develop the 57 face and neck muscles so that the face can actually be restructured to achieve an improved, younger look. Just as a body builder can develop particular muscles in his or her body, a particular facial feature can be developed and accentuated by performing a specific facial exercise. In just a short period of time there will be a noticeable difference in the contour and tone of the face.
Ms. Maggio has appeared on numerous television shows including Dateline, Geraldo, New York Today, CNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, BBC, HSN, QVC, The Learning Channel, Discovery, Good Morning Arizona and The Food Network among others.
Ms. Maggio’s techniques have been voted as one of the top 100 beauty products in the world by Harpers & Queen magazine. As quoted in the New York Times, Ms. Maggio has succeeded “in bending time’s arrow the other way.”
