Facial massages have been around for a long time, but only recently did they experience a surge in popularity. The great part about facial massages is that they are very cost friendly. Simply using your hands will bring you to the first step of your facial massage journey.
Let’s start off by saying that facial massages do not alter the bone structure of one's face. This is a very common misconception that facial massages have. Facial massages are meant to increase blood flow, relax the tense muscles in the area, and enhance the beautiful facial contours you have. Let’s delve even deeper into these aforementioned benefits, shall we?
Benefits of Facial Massages
Improves Blood Flow
Facial massages are a great way to improve blood circulation. Stimulation to the blood flow allows the skin to take on a temporary, glowing appearance.
Gets Rid of Puffiness
Massages to the skin are also beneficial for deflating puffiness that you may experience in the skin. The stimulation sends blood and oxygen all over the face, reduces puffiness, evens out the skin tone and detoxifies the skin.
To detoxify the skin, we recommend massaging the lymph nodes located in the neck area, underneath the ears. This will drain the toxins that lead to dull, graying skin.
The face, particularly the jaw area is one of the most tense areas of the body. By massaging the face, you are giving the skin, and face, a moment to truly relax after a long day. Facial massages can also be done in the morning as well to help decrease any puffiness that has been accumulated during your sleep. This is more of a wellness benefit but selfcare is just as important as skincare.
One last note is that facial massages are not something you should expect drastic results after the first massage. Consistency is key, just like with many other things. By consistently doing facial massages your skin and face will be feeling more relaxed and loved.
