Get Back Your Youthful Glow with These 3 Anti-aging Massages
What exercise is for a healthy body, massage is for your glowing skin. Massages relax the muscles on your face, improves blood circulation, and tones your skin cells. The combination of different hand moments on your face, in turn, brings a pink blushing glow. Facial massages have been used for centuries to stimulate the blood circulation, release the tension on the face, and to get firm and taut skin. With anti-ageing, the new coin word today, a lot of massage techniques have been modified to prevent early ageing and to give you a youthful skin. Here are three anti-ageing skin massages that you can try.
A very basic yet effective massage technique is pinching. The masseur pinches the skin on your face by using his/her thumb and index finger gently with twisting movements. You can visualize this like turning a key in the lock, but with a little less force. The masseur usually starts from the center of the face, working along the cheekbones and then the jawline. In one session, it is repeated five times, in twisting motion, once to the left and then to the right. This pinching massage technique improves blood circulation, which instantly brings a reddish-pink glow to your face.
A combination of moisturizing your skin and getting a face massage, this is probably even easier than pinching. This can be done any time in the day when you apply a cream and takes just a minute. All you have to do is apply the cream on your palms and stretch your skin using smoothing movements. To reduce your wrinkles and sagging skin place your thumbs on either side of your chin and gently smooth up towards your ears. Similarly, place your palms on each side of your cheekbones and smooth out towards your hairline, hold for a moment, and then release. While this facial workout will smoothen your skin, it will also bring firmness and softness to your face. In a few days, your face will look shinier, plumper, and youthful.
What do you do when there are wrinkles on your dress? You iron it. This is precisely the same for your face. This anti-wrinkle iron massage involves using your fingers as iron and smoothening the frown lines and wrinkles. You can get a professional help or do it in your home as a daily facial workout. Look for fine lines and wrinkles on your face, place your fingertips on them, and smoothen it towards your forehead like ironing them. However, you should be careful to do it in the right manner. Massage horizontally on vertical lines with your index fingers moving outwards. Similarly for horizontal lines, place your fingertips between your eyebrows and move upwards. Repeat it 6 times. With regular exercise, it will reduce the number of wrinkles and give you a smoother skin.
Finishing off the massage, you can apply L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that helps you get brighter and youthful skin by exfoliating and moisturizing your skin. Its ultra-lightweight texture penetrates 10 layers deep into the skin to boost moisture retention and give you clear crystal brighter skin. It contains active ingredients like Salicylic Acid which accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture.
