The face is full of nerves and pleasure points, so it makes sense that a facial massage is a desirable form of pampering. Give yourself a facial massage or visit a professional. Whether you are looking for a quick midday pick-me-up or a soothing escape, the luxury of massage is easily justified by some of its more practical benefits.
Get in a Better Mood
Facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood, according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute. Psychological tests administered after 45 minutes of facial massaging showed significant improvements in both mood and anxiety levels, according to the 2008 study. A relaxing facial massage may be just what you need to reduce stress.
Massaging prevent Wrinkles
Daily stress often results in tension buildup in the muscles. Foreheads furrow and lines form between the brows and along the lip line. Gentle, routine facial massage can help relax these tight and drawn muscles, decreasing the lines that they form. Massage combined with a hydrating moisturiser can also help minimize lines and dryness.
See some examples down below that you can do on a daily basis!
The Deep-Cleansing Massage
Massaging an oil cleanser into your skin — instead of just rubbing it on and immediately rinsing it off — can increase its efficacy by as much as 30%. This technique also offers the same results as using an electronic facial brush by helping dissolve oil on the skin — without the risk of breaking capillaries or exacerbating rosacea.
The Plumping/Contouring/Lifting Massage
Backstage at fashion shows, you’ll often see models getting facial massages before their makeup is applied so their skin will look extra glowy under the lights. This technique can work just as well for you when you’re getting ready for a night out. It makes the skin look more plump and even-toned, and it temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lines.
