Five Benefits of Facial Massage
Everyone knows that a full-body massage has amazing effects on your mind and body. But what about a facial massage? Is it just a relaxing part of every facial treatment? Or does a facial massage have benefits all of its own? Giving you here the five benefits of facial massage to convince you to have one now.
Massage gives your facial muscles a workout.
You know that your body needs to be regularly exercised to keep the muscles supple, but what about your facial muscles? Yes, they also need a fitness regime, and no, opening your mouth to add food doesn’t count as a workout. Regular exercise in the form of a facial massage will help tone your facial muscles. And it will help keep your face looks younger.
Any massage helps to relieve tension.
If you’re feeling stressed, the muscles on your face can tense up in the same way as your shoulders hunch and your neck aches. On top of the stress, this can also lead to wrinkles. It would be best to counteract it before the tension takes hold and starts to show on your face. Regular massage relieves the build-up of tension in facial muscles. If your skin is oily and prone to acne, a ten-minute facial massage will be perfect, or you will stimulate too much oil production. For normal to dry skin, up to 20 minutes is ideal. It’s very relaxing, too, which is just what you need when you’re stressed out.
Facial massage increases blood circulation.
When you’ve hurt your back or shoulder, a massage is an ideal way to get the blood circulation going. Massage also promotes healing. The same applies to a facial massage. Your face muscles need looking after and will appreciate a decent massage, too, even if you haven’t overdone it in the same way you might do with your sore calf muscles or shoulders. Having a good massage on your face will help to increase the blood and oxygen flow to the skin and muscles. This will plump everything up and will give you a younger, more radiant glow.
It gives you a natural facelift.
Massage increases the blood flow and oxygen to the area, rejuvenating your whole face. It follows that having regular facial massages can naturally (and very pleasurably) give you a younger-looking face. Oxygen is known to be a natural form of anti-aging skincare, and better blood flow has the effect of also increasing collagen production, giving you a naturally healthy glow.
Facial massage will help your skincare products sink into your skin
When you spend money on good quality skin care treatments, it’s always good to know that they are working on your skin. You can increase the effects of your home skincare preparations, too, with a little help from a good massage.
The increased blood flow improves skin texture, so carry on the good work at home whenever you carry out your daily cleansing routines. Just cleanse your skin as normal, and then apply a serum and moisturizer with a gentle tapping motion. The massaging action really does help skincare products absorb more easily into your skin.
What more reason do you need to invest in a relaxing, anti-aging facial massage?
You’ll look younger!
Depending on your skin condition, age, skincare goals, and budget, regular facial treatment works in combination with daily skincare will improve the overall appearance of your skin. Once a month treatment is ideally recommended for normal to dry skin and every two weeks for combination or acne-prone skin.
