For bright and radiant skin, definitely add facial massage to your skincare routine!
Glowing skin and contoured facial features create a recipe for natural beauty and confidence. You probably know that a great home skincare routine, proper hydration, sun protection, sleep, and regular facials are essential for beauty excellence. Facial massage however, is a lesser known, highly effective tool for a radiant complexion!
What is a facial massage?
Let’s be clear, one of the reasons why your face looks so good after your facial, is due in part from the facial massage you received in your treatment! Facial massage reduces excess fluid, relieves tension, and boosts circulation. This gives your complexion a smooth, chiseled glow.
Essentially, a facial massage can be performed in a variety of ways: with your bare hands, a warm wash cloth, a jade roller, ice globes, salt stones, or a (growing) variety of patented face massage tools.
Simply, apply your favorite hydrating facial oil on your skin and then with an upwards motion, massage away. You’ll combat facial bloat, stimulate collagen formation, decrease fine-lines, improve circulation, and unleash beauty producing lymphatic drainage. The result, a contoured face and a more confident you!
