The right technique: the benefits of skin massage
The perfect end to a long week, facial massage isn’t just a great way of releasing build-up tension, it can also transform your skin. Properly executed, facial massage can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, tighten skin and encourage microcirculation, improving blood flow for more radiant-looking skin. What’s more, incorporating facial massage into your skincare routine can help your products’ ingredients to better penetrate the skin, meaning maximum skincare benefits. What’s not to like?
Who needs a salon? Professional massage tips you can use at home
Using the tips of your fingers, begin by making large circles across your neck and under your chin, working upwards towards the face. Pay attention to the pressure: the skin on your face is more delicate than on other parts of your body, so try not to press too hard. Continue outwards towards your jawline and the sides of your cheeks, moving towards your cheekbones. Pushing gently up and outwards with the tips of your fingers will help stimulate circulation, but take care not to drag downwards on skin. Finish with broad, circular strokes from the temples into the centre of the forehead and back, before lightly tapping the delicate skin under eyes with your ring finger to de- puff and brighten.
