Do you sometimes look in the mirror and feel that your skin is puffy, loose, wrinkly and dull? Facial massage can really help to diminish these concerns by creating a more radiant, firmer and healthier complexion.
Just like the muscles in our body, our facial muscles work hard so they also can hugely benefit from having a massage. Due to everyday stresses we cannot help but frown and tense our facial muscles. This over time can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop.
Facial massage techniques help to stimulate the muscles, blood circulation and lymphatic system. We have 300 pressure points on our face which relate to every part of our body, so a good facial massage can impact positively on every organ.
Below are 7 top benefits of facial massage:
Radiance - Facial massage helps to increase blood circulation to the face and smooth the muscles. The increased blood supply to the face gives a more radiant colour and a refreshed complexion.
Detox - Facial massage helps to increase the skin's natural detoxification process. By stimulating the body's natural blood flow and lymphatic drainage, it helps with the removal of unwanted toxins that have accumulated in the skin.
Reduces Puffiness - Specialist drainage facial massage movements are used to help drain the lymph system, carrying excess water away and restoring balance to your contour and reducing water retention in the face. Facial massage has been a secret weapon for many makeup artists. Makeup artist Gucci Wesrman ensures her models have a mini facial massage before a morning catwalk show to eliminate any puffiness and to create radiance. Gucci Wesrman describes facial massage as a 'morning coffee for the skin'.
Relaxation - Too much stress upon us can cause sleeplessness, headaches and even digestive problems. Just like a body massage, facial massage helps to relieve stress and tension. In fact, massage triggers a host of brain chemistry responses that can result in feelings of relaxation and lower stress levels.
Dark circles - Dark circles can occur due to tiredness, lack of sleep and our genes. As we age the skin loses elasticity and becomes thin, so the veins under the eyes become more prominent. Gentle facial massage movements around the eye area is a great way to make the dark circles less prominent.
De-wrinkle - As we get older our collagen, elastin and muscle tone start to decrease causing wrinkles to appear. Facial massage helps to increase our muscle tone and stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in a much firmer and tighter skin.
Hydration - Not only does the facial massage oil help to replenish the moisture in the skin but the massage itself increases the blood supply to the face, delivering fresh nutrients to the skin that also helps regain moisture and makes the face look refreshed.
