Lift Away The Years is a hand-held vibrating device that claims to give an instant firming and lifting effect to the whole face including eyes, brows, jawline and cheeks, as well as plumping lines and wrinkles.
The battery-powered device, which is recommended to be used twice daily on the face and neck, combines vibration and skincare in a two-part system that claims to maximize wrinkle-fighting, moisturizing and firming performance.
Crystal Clear, the company who make the product, explain that facial muscles are subject to deterioration and sagging, just as the muscles in the body are, and require much the same toning and exercise.
The wand is designed to provide these delicate muscles with the equivalent of a personal trainer for your face.
Vibration causes the muscles to contract, stimulating blood flow and increasing oxygenation of the skin to restore the shape and contour of the face.

The device also releases an anti-ageing serum packed with scientifically proven peptides, including Syn-Ake.
Based on a polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper snake, it is particularly effective in reducing expression lines and wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions.
Syn-Ake is said to be loved by Cheryl Cole, Tulisa and Kate Moss.
The product was developed by Sharon Hilditch, MBE, MD of Crystal Clear and was tested on 30 volunteers over eight weeks.
They found that home use reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 27% and noticed a 45% increase in skin firmness too.
Sharon Hilditch said: “Consumers want to see results based on evidence backed skincare formulations and far less hype in a jar.
“Lift Away the Years has been two years in development and is fully supported by scientific results.”
Face Trainer, the latest product to hit the market promising a youthful complexion, may leave even the most dedicated beauty disciple at a loss for words.
In the same way that you can lift weights to tone up your sagging arms, you can now exercise your facial muscles using a “Face Trainer”.
Claiming to offer “resistance training” for facial muscles, the Face Trainer resembles a futuristic-looking balaclava that covers the head and neck.
Ten minutes a day of wearing the contraption while completing a range of “exercises” including The Puppy Dog and The Frog is supposedly enough to tighten sagging skin and ease the signs of ageing.

Made by the company No!No!, the Face Trainer fits firmly against the skin to provide resistance and helps muscles build and tone to all 44 bilaterally symmetrical muscles of the face and neck.
The Face Trainer is the only FDA registered product of its kind, and the idea is that as the facial muscles become stronger and build they become larger, filling out under the skin and giving a fuller look to the face.
In clinical trials, 71% of users saw a reduction in sagging while 91% of participants said they would recommend the product to a friend.
Just under half of participants (42%) also reported a reduction in both fine and course lines.
Researchers from the University of British Columbia have unlocked a secret code written on everyone’s face which reveals when people are lying.
Scientists have discovered for the first time, five tell-tale muscle groups that control facial expressions, activate differently when we are trying to deceive.
They based their study on more than 23,000 frames of television footage from 52 people emotionally pleading to the public for the return of a missing relative – half of whom were eventually convicted of murdering that person.
The first study of its kind to focus on so-called “high-stakes” emotional deception, discovered that even the most convincing of actors cannot control their facial muscles.
The paper – called Darwin the Detective: Observable Facial Muscle Contractions Reveal Emotional High-Stakes Lies – looked for emotional “leakage”, particularly via those facial muscles which are harder to control – particularly during stressful events or when great concentration is required to maintain a lie.
“Specifically, the <<grief>> muscles, the corrugator supercilli – located around the eyebrow – and depressor anguli oris – between the chin and corner of the lips – were more often contracted in the faces of <<genuine>> rather than <<deceptive pleaders>>,” researchers from the University of British Columbia found.

Researchers found subtle contraction of the zygomatic major – which runs from cheekbone to the mouth – activated during masking smiles, and full contraction of the frontalis – the brow – which flexed during failed attempts to appear sad, “were more commonly identified in the faces of deceptive pleaders”.
The study said: “During the critical lie, told by each deceptive murderer, upper face surprise and lower face happiness were likely to be expressed, attributed to the failed attempt to appear sad and leakage of happiness.
“Deception – a fundamental aspect of human communication – often is accompanied by the simulation of unfelt emotions or the concealment of genuine emotions to correspond to the false message…
“Given limited cognitive resources and the difficulty of necessary multi-tasking during deception, we suggest that emotional leakage is particularly likely to occur when the lie is complex and/or associated with strong emotions to be concealed or falsified.”
The study concluded “findings support the notion that the human face is indelibly stamped with the tale of our humble origin and attempts to mask our emotions are likely to fail when engaging in a consequential act of deception”.
A girl whose video is trending on YouTube has incredible control over her facial features – and in particular, her eyebrows.
Though unsuspecting at first, the cute girl, named Sarah, shows quite the unusual talent as she causes her eyebrows to dance and spasm in rhythm.
The 14-year-old girl starts out with a shy smile to the camera, and an awkward grimace as she waits for the music to start.
What follows is a bizarre, hilarious, and slightly disturbing use of one’s facial muscles.

The video, uploaded to Youtube by user Theinternetisaweird, calls it a girl’s “funny talent” and had almost 3.9 million viewers up to now.
As the music starts, Sarah coyly glances off to one side and dramatically raises one eyebrow.
Then, it’s onto the other side.
The girl does every arch in tempo and on point.
The most impressive part of this video – which is fast becoming an internet sensation with more than a thousand hits – is when the girl begins doing what can only be called the Worm, but with her eyebrows.
One side starts the motion, and then the movement ripples to the other side, and then back again – still in tempo with the music.
Once the show is done, the girl returns to smiling at the camera, no doubt proud of her unusual and mesmerizing talent.
