Facial exercises can take years off your appearance by reducing frown and forehead lines, reducing “puppet mouth’ lines, lifting and firming neckline, making upper and lower cheeks fuller, reduce puffiness and sagging around eyes, improve circulation and nutrient flow into cells and improve lymph circulation. Learn simple exercises that will rejuvenate your face. The fee is $29. Registration closes Sept. 26. For any further questions, call CER at (507) 235-3141.
