Credit: Byrdie Have you ever wondered why your skin is always glowing after a facial? Is it the products or...maybe the facial massage? Yup, that’s right. The secret to glowing and young-looking skin is facial massage. This can be simply done by applying pressure on acupressure points by sweeping your fingers across your face in the right directions. There are 43 muscles in the face and we use it everyday – when we smile, laugh, frown, cry or kiss (yup, that intimate kiss). So, what’s so good about facial massage? Increases circulation Just like how you would go for a relaxing body massage to relieve tension and improves blood circulation, your face muscles need the same TLC. By massaging the soft lines around the mouth, eyes and brows, it helps to increase blood and oxygen flow to the face. You can relieve headache and anxiety too! Natural Facelift Forget about botox and all that fillers. Stimulating your muscles with regular massage not only brings oxygen to the skin but it’s a natural form of anti-aging skin care in itself. More blood flow means giving a healthy and natural glow to the complexion. Allow face products to absorb better into skin Facial massage helps your facial products absorb more easily into the skin. I love using my facial oils whether it’s during my facial massage or cleansing routine. It allows the nutrients to sink in and increase the absorption. Face Detox and diminish eye circles Ever wonder why your dark eye circles never go away no matter how much you spent on eye creams? Skin experts recommends draining the lymph out of your eye area with massage. Fluid from the head, scalp and face flows down through lymph nodes in the neck. Goodbye toxins, eye bags and puffy face! All it takes is 5 minutes of your day for natural glowing skin!
