Rejuvenation of the face through
friction and massage is the best way to make your face look younger
and the results will be immediately noticeable.
Facial muscles sag as a result
of lack of muscular tone. I have found regular massage can make
your facial muscles expand and develop, thus effectively removing
The friction, if used regularly,
will also improve the elasticity of your skin which will help
to smooth out any wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.
However, never attempt to massage
without some form of moisturizer or oil.
First cleanse your skin, then
use a toner and then apply your favorite moisturizer.
Next, use the fingertips of
both hands flat on your face, and massage the moisturizer into
your skin using firm circular upward movements. The direction
of the movements is crucial to achieve natural anti aging results.
At the same time, hold your
head up with your chin thrust forward and your eyes wide open
to stretch the skin smooth. It might help to also open your mouth
so your facial expression is one of wide-eyed astonishment.
For the hollows under your eyes
use your usual eye cream on the tips of your middle two fingers
of each hand. Tense the muscles that move your lower eye lids
to give something firm to press against and work the cream into
your skin under both eyes at the same time using the same circular
massaging movement. Always use an upward movement, never downwards.
Make the massage as firm and
deep as you can but take care not to pull or drag your skin.
Your fingers must slide easily across your face but at the same
time you must create some friction and warmth.
Cover every part of your face,
starting with your cheeks and keeping the movements circular
and in an upwards direction, make your way right up to your hair
line. Dont forget your chin and under your jaw line as
This circular movement not only
stimulates the blood circulation to your face it also tones the
facial muscles as well. So really this is two natural anti aging
tips in one.
If you massage your face on
a regular basis your complexion will improve and take on a translucent
almost porcelain quality. Fines line will disappear, your skin
will become more elastic and you will make your face look younger
and more vibrant.
