For many, life has in part become a never ending quest to find the magical pill that will keep their face and neck young forever. We google what products celebrities are using, jealously ask our fitter friends, and hopelessly buy every cream that promises to make us look as if we were 20.
But what if the secret is not the creams and serums themselves? Does the way we apply our daily skincare actually matter? Continue reading to find out how facial massage works and what benefits it has to offer if done regularly.
As with any massage, applying pressure to the tissues activates the lymphatic system, which is responsible for clearing away toxins. Even a couple of minutes of massaging movements can already have a mild effect on strengthening your immune system and removing excess waste and water from the face.
The facial massage works like a wake-up call for muscles and tissues under the skin. As a result, they start working harder, which shapes the facial oval and makes the skin look firmer and fresher.
Moreover, there are so many mental benefits to this treatment. It is great at decreasing signs of anxiety and make you feel fresher afterwards. If done with oils known for their relaxing qualities, for example lavender, facial massage calms down and facilitates falling asleep.
CAN I DO IT AT HOME?
The best thing about this technique is that it can be easily implemented into your daily routine. Take the serum or cream that you use daily and spend more time massaging it into the face. This will both activate the facial muscles and facilitate the absorption.
Having this treatment with a professional once a month can be an effective addition to your own efforts. It is also the time to ask for some tips or new techniques that will help you address the areas of concern.
HOW TO DO IT?
Facial Massage is an amazing technique, but don’t start with it just yet. The direction of the movements is the most important part. Often the advice you can find on the internet will turn out to be fraudulent, showing you the techniques that will do more harm than good.
We recommend booking a facial massage and asking your provider about the right ways to do it, before starting to do it on your own.
Glow Concierge providers Caterina and Eleftheria both have many years of experience in this area. After a 45-minute session, you will not only look fresher but will be equipped with all their advice and expertise to transform the way your face looks.
