5 Benefits Of Face Massage For Your Skin

5 Benefits Of Face Massage For Your Skin

1. Increased Blood Flow

Indulging in a facial massage is the quickest way to flush out toxins from your face and stimulate the flow of blood. It allows you to naturally cleanse and drain. The result? A brighter, flushed skin that’ll put your blush to shame.

2. Alters Double Chin And Jawline

Face massages can tighten your skin and help break down fat. Call it natural contouring, maybe? Cheekbones that can cut glass? Check. A razor sharp jawline? Double check. Okay, that may be an exaggeration but when you keep at it, you’ll notice a difference in your jaw, cheek, chin and neck.

3. Refreshes Skin And Reduces Puffiness

Fatigued? There’s puffiness? Treat your skin to a 2-minute facial massage to say goodbye to those panda eyes and instantly hit the refresh button on your skin. The gentle kneading, tapping and massaging will stimulate lymphatic drainage and show the exit door to these unwelcomed guests. Our Simple Protect N Glow Vitamin C Brightening Under Eye Gel strengthens the skin barrier and does an excellent job at de-puffing those tired eyes.

4. Improves The Appearance Of Wrinkles

Who needs a time machine when you have facial massages by your side? They enhance the flow of blood and oxygen to your skin, leading to a natural, youthful glow that will have people asking for your skincare secrets.

5. Boosts Product Absorption

Ever felt like your skincare products are simply ‘sitting’ on your skin and not really doing much? A good facial massage can create a VIP road for your serums and moisturisers to penetrate deep into your skin. Having said that, have you given our Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid + Vit B5 a try? This serum penetrates deep into your skin and never fails to lend you that coveted look.

How To Do A Facial Massage At Home?

Giving yourself an at-home facial massage is quite easy. All you gotta do is start with clean hands and face and take a healthy amount of your moisturiser. Our Replenishing Rich Moisturiser is the perfect pick for this job. It packs in a ton of moisture and offers a good slip.

Keep gentle but firm pressure and repeat every stroke 5 times or for 20-30 seconds. Below is a routine you can adapt.

  • In a small circular motion rub your fingers into your temples.
  • Gently press and glide your ring finger along your brow bone. Repeat the same movement underneath your eyes - from the inner corner going outwards.
  • Using your index and middle fingers, press your cheekbones and glide upwards towards your temple. You can also do this step with your knuckles; starting from the nose and going towards your ears.
  • Take your thumb and first two fingers to gently pinch your chin, going upwards towards the ears.
  • Then, using the first two fingers make small circular motions to massage the area under your earlobes.
  • Use the outside of your little finger to press into your neck, starting below the ears and moving towards the collarbone.
  • Lastly, use your fingertips to tap over your entire face.

What To Keep In Mind

A DIY facial massage is a quick but short fix. For serious, dramatic results, you’ll have to be utterly consistent. While it surely helps promote blood flow and oxygen to your skin, but when it comes to collagen, the effects are not reaching the skin’s surface aka dermis. Along with using your fingers, you can also depend on massaging tools.
