This fitness programme describes how one can combat ageing of the
face. As we grow older the facial muscles slacken through underuse
and the skin droops, forming pouches, bags under the eyes and
wrinkles. The facial muscles need exercises in the same way as the
rest of the body. Supporting this theory, Eva Fraser offers a
step-by-step programme towards a firmer, fitter face. Fully
illustrated throughout, the book includes 5 workout programmes,
starting with warming-up and basic exercises and progressing
gradually to intermediate and advanced workouts.

Born in England in 1928, Eva Fraser grew up to be keenly interested in sport, and her first job was working as a tennis and squash instructor. She then went to work for one of London's top photographers, soon becoming involved in the more technical side of photographic printing. She travelled widely, establishing a career in tapestry restoration until a chance meeting in 1978 with Eva Hoffman. Madame Hoffman, then 76 years of age, trained Eva in her facial exercise techniques, which she had devised with a doctor colleague in the 1930s. On her retirement Madame Hoffman encouraged Eva to take over her work. This method is taught in London in private one-to-one sessions. Through books and videos it is now available to a wider audience. Eva Fraser's Face and Body Programme is also published by Penguin.
