Looking to update your daily beauty routine? Add a facial massage. It will work wonders. And no, it won’t be a hassle, since it will take just a couple of minutes if performed while you are applying your regular moisturizer or face oil. Think of it as a gym workout for your face. That’s how beneficial it is.
Rub a dime-size amount of moisturizer or oil between your palms and start by pressing your fingertips between your eyebrows, gently sliding up your forehead. Repeat several times then proceed to massaging from the center of your visage towards the ears, past the cheeks. Keep sliding across the jawline with up and out motions and remember to also massage the neck with vertical strokes from the collarbone upward.
Besides a relaxing effect, a facial massage will diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles increasing the absorption of your moisturizer or face oil. Skin will acquire an extra glow looking firmer and more contoured while the oily areas on your face will be decongested.
Ice Therapy + Massage = A Match Made in Heaven
This power duo will soothe your skin after a sleepless night, a drink too many, or simply when your complexion looks puffy and red. Apply your favorite mask sheet onto your face and run across it a couple of ice cubes (or, even better, the cooling – and multitasking - Jalue “Ice Therapy”) for 15-20 minutes. The icy effect will lock in the mask ingredients for longer-lasting results. Follow with your moisturizer using the above massage technique.
