Facial massage — what is it and how does it work?
Xlash Cosmetics lists the benefits of massaging your face and why you should include it in your daily beauty routine!
What is a facial massage?
Did you know that we can affect the skin in more ways than just using skin care products? Facial massage is a beauty trick that can help improve the skin’s appearance and well-being, both inside and out. By massaging your face five to ten minutes a day, or a few times a week, you can slow down the aging process and tone your facial muscles.
One tip is to use a Rose Quartz Facial Roller or Gua Sha which are gentle facial tools that improve blood circulation. Both give a soothing feeling with the help of their cool temperature which helps to reduce any swelling and inflammation.
Benefits of massaging your face
Improves blood circulation
With a healthy blood circulation, the skin absorbs oxygen and nutrients in the blood, which in turn promotes cell renewal. Regular facial massage can help improve the texture of the skin and give more radiance. Facial massage not only increases blood circulation, but is also said to start lymphatic drainage to clear waste and toxins to keep the skin healthy and clean.
Relieves muscle tension and tones your face
Do you have a tendency to tense your facial muscles when you feel stressed, concentrated or tired? Then add facial massage to your beauty routine! Muscle tension in the face can cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Facial massage helps the skin to relax and relieve any muscle tension.
Take your time and enjoy! Facial massage is just as good at calming emotional tensions as it is at relieving tense facial muscles. Therefore, take your time when massaging your face and relax properly — because you’re worth it!
