Scientists have revealed that as we mature, our most important organ also becomes less responsive to anti-ageing products… FROM NEEDLES TO STONES, HERE ARE SEVEN WAYS TO WAKE UP YOUR FACE..

1. FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE: Has proven results at improving the signs of ageing as it relaxes muscles and increases circulation. Perhaps that explains why A-listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are rumoured to be fans of the ancient Chinese practice.
2. JADE ROLLERS:When rolled across the face, jade rollers stimulate the lymph system and improve drainage on the face, which can eliminate any puffiness. The rollers are also meant to help tone facial muscles and increase circulation. £28, www.cultbeauty.co.uk
3. OLAY REGENERIST: Olay Regenerist – Olay Regenerists’s new formula with Skin Energising Technology uses key ingredients Matrixyl, Niacinamide and Olivem, making it their most powerful anti-ageing products yet. The new Olay Regenerist 3 point super age-defying cream and serum are available now at Boots.com.
4. COOL-WATER WASHING: Rinsing your face in water that is either too hot or too cold can damage the fine capillaries under your skin and cause broken thread veins so is best avoided. Instead, wash your face with cool water to help tighten pores and wake up your peepers.
5. ELECTRIC FACIALS: Forget a scrub and a mask, these days facials are high-tech, and many of the treatments heralded for their long-standing results are those which use a small electrical current. Painless, the treatment focus on improving circulation and muscle tone. Results are visible immediately but a course of treatments are recommended for long-lasting results.
6. FACIAL YOGA: Yes you’ll look strange, but facial yoga devotees swear that by keeping the muscles under the face strong and supple, your skin will look younger longer. They could be on to something. Increasing blood flow and muscle elasticity certain helps your skin look better, just do it while you have the bathroom door locked. The Yoga Face, £13.99, Amazon.co.uk
7. SCRUBS: As well as wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores and dull skin are another tell-tale sign of ageing. However simply exfoliating the skin with a light scrub can work wonders to improve the tone and texture of your skin…
