Nasolabial folds and wrinkles on the forehead are actually caused by sagging.
Blemishes, wrinkles, dullness… Face worries become more serious as we age, but Junko Asaka, who presides over the rejuvenation makeup class Say for middle-aged and older people, suggests, “The first thing you should take care of is sagging!” She will tell you why you should pay attention to sagging and how to get rid of it.
What do you think makes your face look old or young? In fact, spots and wrinkles don’t leave an impression unless you look very closely.
It is “sagging” that makes you look older than that. If the face line becomes slack and nasolabial folds appear, even if the face appears small in the photo, it gives the impression of being “aged”.
■Who taught you?
Say young creator Junko Asaka
Born in 1955 (Showa 30). After working for a major cosmetics company, in 2011 she became the director of the cosmetic brand “Say” for adults. In 2012, she opened the “Wakasukuri Gakusho” in Ginza, Tokyo, where she learned about skin care and makeup for middle-aged and elderly people. The Asaka-style makeup technique was introduced on an NHK program and became a hot topic. Her book is “Young-looking Makeup from 40” (published by Shueisha).
Nasolabial folds, double chins, wrinkles on the forehead…these are all sagging
Sagging cheeks are called ‘nasolabial folds’, chin sagging is ‘double chin’, mouth sagging is called ‘marionette lines’. . One of the reasons for this is the weakening of facial muscles. The muscles supporting the skin weaken, causing the face to droop.
Furthermore, if slack is left untreated, not only will it deepen, but it can also spread to other troubles. For example, when the facial muscles around the eyes weaken, the eyelids droop and cover the eyes. As a result, he developed a habit of raising his eyebrows in an attempt to lift his eyelids, and this habit caused wrinkles on his forehead. In other words, it is sagging that creates unwanted wrinkles. Therefore, it should be dealt with first.
As you get older, your face changes into an elongated face.
As facial muscles weaken, not only do the muscles in various parts of the face sag, but as you can see from the illustration, the “position” of the facial parts changes compared to when you were young.
Basically, the positions of parts such as the eyes and mouth are lowered. However, as I mentioned earlier, we tend to raise our eyebrows to cover the weakening of the facial muscles around our eyes, so the only thing we do is raise our eyebrows. This will increase the distance between your eyebrows and eyes.
Also, as the position of the mouth goes down, the lips lose their firmness. The distance between the nose and mouth widens, especially as the upper lip recedes.
These changes can make the entire face look “stretched” and unbalanced. Therefore, as a measure against sagging, it is important not only to massage the weakened facial muscles, but also to apply makeup to eliminate the feeling of “longness”.
