Today, moisturisers and serums are so advanced that they have the ability to encourage skin firmness. But, did you know that specific facial massages can amplify the effects of these wonderful products?
Achieving healthy, glowing skin is not only a matter of what kind of products are used but more so how the formulas are applied. Certain techniques can enhance the effect of the cosmetic products you use. This is where massaging comes into play. Massages intensify the effect of cosmetic products by pressing the formulas deep into the skin.
There are 5 essential massaging movements that have a positive effect on the skin. Targeted "hand movements" can have various positive effects on the skin, such as the activation of acupressure points, reinforcing lymphatic drainage or improving blood circulation in the skin.
Here are 5 quick and easy massaging techniques that can help firm and energise the skin:
First, apply the desired serum or moisturiser to the face.
Step 1: Place the fingers at the centre of the chin and glide them towards the temples.
Step 2: Place the fingers at the corners of the mouth and glide them in an upward movement towards the temples.
Step 3: Lastly, place the fingers at either side of the nose and glide them towards the temples once more.
Repeat the above-mentioned steps 3 to 5 times or up to 10 times.
Step 4: Next, place the fingers at the temples and glide them upwards towards the hairline. Repeat this step 5 to 7 times.
Step 5: Lastly, place the fingers on the bridge of the nose and gently glide them towards the forehead. Repeat this step 5 to 7 times.
Once you have completed the massage, the skin will appear firmer and rosier because the blood flow has been stimulated. The perfect skin-firming workout for your face!
