Makeup free confidence starts with feeling great about your skin. So let’s talk about the wonders of the simple, age old facial massage.
Here’s my top 5 reasons why you should treat yourself to regular facial massages;
1️⃣ IT GIVES YOUR SKIN AN INSTANT PLUMPED UP GLOW
When our lymph nodes underneath our ears and in our neck become blocked this leads to our puffiness and dull looking skin. A good facial massage will manipulate the muscles and release tension and toxins from the lymph nodes which results in a brighter plumped up and yluthful looking complexion
2️⃣ IT’S AN ANTI AGEING WONDER
I have already mentioned how the art of manipulating the muscles releases tension and increase the blood flow. This literally wakes up your skin by stimulating the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and improving the elasticity of the skin.
Yes, these are the holy grail of youthful looking skin and we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin as it ages which is what leads to our skin wrinkling, becoming thinner and sagging. So anything which helps boost our natural collagen production is going to help our skin looking more youthful for longer.
3️⃣ IT’S AN ANTI ACNE WAR HORSE
As well as releasing toxins from the skin the lymphatic drainage and muscle manipulation increase the flow of oxygenated blood and therefore the nutrients which is what allows for a brighter complexion and firmer looking skin. This act of removing toxins also can help to reduce the chances of acne breakouts
4️⃣ IT’S AN INCREDIBLE WAY TO RELAX
Do you have trouble relaxing? Most of us do, well a facial massage is an excellent way of helping you and your stressed out face to relax! Our faces contain lots of pressure points, when stimulated, lead to a release of muscle tension.
5️⃣ Wave bye bye to under eye bags!
We all suffer from dark circles and the dreaded under eye bags from time to time. Some more than others. The build up of toxins can lead to fluid retention under the eyes which gives us the dark circles. Stimulating the facial muscles under the eye area will help to release the fluid and brighten the eye area.
