Facial massages increase blood circulation to your facial tissue, resulting in brighter, glowing skin.
Facial massages can also help to lift and firm your beautiful skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. As an added benefit, a good facial massage reduces stress, leaving you feeling relaxed and peaceful.
Follow the tips below to get a good facial treatment:
Start with clean skin
Complete your face-washing routine before conducting your massage. Cleanse your face using a gentle cleanser or oil, rinse it with lukewarm water, then pat your face dry with a towel.
Apply a light layer of face oil
Using a bit of oil helps your fingers move smoothly across your face, rather than dragging on your skin. It also leaves your face bright and glowing when you’re through with the massage. You may use a blend of oils formulated especially for the face, or choose a single oil that works best with your skin type.
Begin by massaging your lymph area
Many believe that toxins drain from the face to the lymph nodes, located under your ears on the sides of your neck. Massaging this area helps to release the toxins and prevent them from building up in your face. Using the tips of your fingers, massage your lymph area in a circular motion for one minute.
