Why Facial Massage is Amazing!

Why is facial massage amazing – simply put, facial massage stimulates the circulation of the blood towards the skin and stimulates cell growth.   Helping to prevent fines lines and new wrinkle formation while at the same time helps to rejuvenate and tighten the skin.

We have heard for years the benefits of body massages: tension relief, improved circulation, and increase flexibility (to name a few).   Facial massage is like a mini workout for your face!   Facial massages involve massaging key facial muscles and pressure points (like your jawline, cheekbones, and forehead) using your hands or a stone roller.  Just a few minutes of gentle deep stroking, tapping, pinching, and kneading helps increase blood flow, reduce puffiness, and keeps your skin looking fresh, youthful, and fine line-free!

5 Benefits of Facial Massage:

1 – Tones facial muscles and reliefs tension.  Most of us hold a lot of tension in our face.  When we feel stressed, tired, or concentrated, we tense our forehead and eye area (this causes wrinkles over time)

2 – Releases toxins.  Using a lot of beauty products, environmental factors and the hustle of everyday life can cause toxins to build-up, contributing to fine lines, puffiness, and breakouts.

3 – Boosts circulation.  Just like doing a set of jumping jacks or push-ups, the movement of a quick facial massage sends a surge of blood and oxygen to your skin.  This increased flow deflates puffiness, brightens skin tone, and helps detoxify your skin.

4 – Improves product absorption.  Massaging your face with your fingers in upward, lifting motions is a wonderful way to help your favorite products like moisturizer and serum absorb into the skin. 

5 – Relaxation!  Skincare benefits aside, facial massages are just as good at relieving emotional tension as they are at calming muscle tension.  They help you feel more relaxed and at ease at the end of a long day!

Skin care experts advise on a facial massage at home 2-3 times per week.  Of course, come in for your monthly facial to get a facial massage (and so much more) from a licensed professional!
