The 1 best skincare hack that all skin experts can agree upon is the benefits of a facial massage. It reduces facial tension, softens frown lines, and boosts circulation to increase blood flow, oxygen, and stimulate collagen production. It's super relaxing and de-stressing too.
You are probably wondering how to give yourself a facial massage. Do you need a gua sha, or a jade roller? Those skin tools are great but you already have EXACT what you need..your hands. Yep, that's right, the BEST beauty tool are your hands. It only takes 3-5 minutes and two hands to complete this invigorating DIY facial massage to tone, depuff, lift, and release tension.
Incorporating this massage 2-3 times a week with a good skincare routine for your skin type will give you radiant healthy skin.
Step by Step Easy Facial Massage
Always start with freshly washed hands and a clean face. Never touch your face with dirty hands. Apply a facial oil or a balm to oil like Clean Slate . This brings moisture to the skin and allows your hands to glide easily across your face. Ok, let's get started.
Pro Tip: Never don’t pull at the skin. Always use upward strokes
Step 1: Relax forehead muscles and frown lines. Massage using circular motions along your forehead, between the eyes, over the brow bones moving out to your temples with loosely closed fists (fingers facing your face) . Repeat for 1 Minute.
Step 2: Depuff eyes and lift the brow. Apply a little extra oil or Clean Slate if needed before massaging around the eyes to avoid pulling the delicate skin.
Step 3: Release jaw tension, smooth, and tone. Sweep the palms and heels of your hands (where your hand meet the writs) along both sides of your face at the same time with medium light pressure. Start at the chin and work your way up your gorgeous face.
Your face should feel invigorated because this is a mini workout for your muscles. Do you feel the tension melting away? You should also notice a healthy glow, plumper skin, softened fine lines, and slightly more defined features.
If you have time, I recommend helping to move any stagnant lymph with a quick medium pressure sweeping motions down the both sides of your neck. Repeat motions for 30 seconds.
