Daily Face Massage In Under 2 minutes

Life is busy, and giving your skin a little love and attention can often fall to the wayside. However, dedicating just under two minutes to a face massage can do wonders not only for your skin but also for your overall well-being.

A recent study shows how daily self-massage can visibly improve the skin. In the study they noticed significant improvement in radiance, plumpness and reduction of fine lines. Also all of the participants declared that massage improved their wellbeing.

This self-massage protocol covers the whole face, neck and chest and has a myriad of benefits.

Benefits of face massage

Boost blood circulation

Gently massaging your face stimulates blood flow, promoting better circulation. Improved circulation means better nutrient delivery to the skin cells, aiding in cell repair and rejuvenation. This natural boost can lead to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Relieve tension

The face carries a lot of tension from daily stressors. A quick massage helps relax facial muscles, releasing accumulated tension. This can alleviate headaches and minimize the appearance of stress lines, leaving your face feeling lighter and more relaxed.

Lymphatic drainage

Facial massage supports lymphatic drainage, assisting the body in removing toxins and reducing puffiness. By gently stimulating lymph nodes, you're aiding your body's natural detoxification process, resulting in a clearer and healthier-looking complexion.

Enhancing product absorption

Applying your skincare products before a face massage allows for better absorption. The massage helps in the even distribution of products, ensuring they penetrate deeper into the skin, maximising their effectiveness.

The 1-minute face massage technique

Now, let's walk through a simple yet effective 1-minute face massage technique:

  1. Cleanse: Start with a clean face to rid the skin of any impurities. If you are looking for a new cleanser, give Smooth to Oil Cleanser a try. It is a gentle 2-in-1 oil cleanser that helps prevent hormonal breakouts and strengthen the skin barrier.

  2. Apply a Facial Oil: Choose your favourite facial oil or serum and apply a small amount to your fingertips. Glow & Revitalise Oil Serum was developed face massage in mind. It has the most perfect slip for massage without feeling greasy on the skin.

  3. Begin the Massage:

  • Using your hands swipe with medium pressure from centre towards your armpits.
  • Gently circle your fingers just above the collarbones.
  • Massage with gentle pressure the back and sides of your neck. Move upwards with massaging motion and then very gently swipe down using just your fingertips.
  • Use your index and middle fingers to create claws and massage the jawline from centre towards the ears.
  • Massage around your cheekbones with the claws.
  • Use the side of your index finger to glide under your cheekbone for extra sculpt and lift.
  • Make a claw out of your index fingers and gently stretch the skin between your eyebrows.
  • With upwards moving motions lift the eyebrows and smooth the skin on your forehead.
