Woke up this morning and saw another crease on my forehead. Wait, was this there yesterday? When did my face start to have..lines?
Religiously cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing can only do so much these days. Facial massages are not only to be enjoyed at the spa, where your therapist with baby-soft hands expertly kneads and strokes your face to shave years off your face. Nay.
With a consistent face massage practice at home, you can naturally lift your face.
Will a face massage reduce wrinkles, tighten skin and make me look younger?
That's a big ask, but yes to an extent. Obvious changes won't happen overnight, but through consistent, diligent practice.
The benefits of face massages are many. It's the combination of these benefits that will help to improve the appearance of your skin tone and overall complexion.
- Repetitive use of specific facial muscles will cause lines to form. Regular massages will release tension and relax your facial muscles, delaying wrinkles.
- It improves blood circulation to your face. This delivers needed the nutrients to the skin, improves collagen production and gives you that healthy, glowy flush.
- Drains excess fluids from your face to reduce puffiness caused by water retention.
How do I do a face massage?
It's best to start with a clean face and clean hands. You can use a facial oil or moisturizer mixed with an oil serum for the massage.
It's important that your product doesn't dry out halfway through the massage, causing you to pull at the skin. Tugging at the skin is the opposite of what we want to achieve!
Use gentle to medium pressure and 7-8 strokes per area. To see the benefits, incorporate this routine regularly for 2 - 5 minutes.
