The Best Skin Care Regimens
How Facial Massage
Rejuvenates Your Skin
How can you
boost your skin care regimens?
Picture yourself on an island.
Sunshine, perfect warmth, palms waving
ever-so-slightly in a nice breeze, the light scent of tropical flowers,
the sound of waves crashing on the sand and yourself, lying on a
massage table while an expert masseuse works out the cares of the world
that have built up in your muscles over time.
Who wouldn't love a
massage like that every now and then?
Many of us associate massage with
pure leisure, luxury and relaxation.
But it's so much more than that!

The best skin care
regimens include a self facial massage which can be easily incorporated
into a regular skin care routine and takes just minutes a day.
While cleansing the skin and/or applying a moisturizer the
following manipulations can be used to boost the benefits of normal
skin care regimens.
The facial massage techniques should be done using light to moderate
pressure and the
complete set should be done consecutively about three times each day.
The skin near the eyes is particularly delicate, so light pressure
should always be used there. A good idea is to use the ring fingers
around the eyes since these fingers tend to have less strength than the
fore and middle fingers.
Begin the facial massage
with the forehead. . .
As I mentioned above, best skin care regimens use these manipulations
daily while cleansing the face and/or applying moisturizer.
- Apply an anti-aging product with fingertips in
upward circular motions
on the entire surface of the face.
- Continue with long upward strokes
the entire length of the forehead.
- Move on around the eyebrows and around the
lower eyes, starting at the
inner corners and working outwards and upwards.
- Progress from the outward corners of the eyes
lightly down the jaw line
in long strokes all the way to the chin.
- Work the entire area of each
cheek with upward, circular motions.
- When entire cheek area has been
covered, lightly move down the jaw line once more in long strokes to
- This time focusing on the jaw line, use a
motion the entire length of the jaw on each side.
- Move lightly to the
decollete and using upward, sweeping strokes work the entire neck.
This easy do-it-yourself
skin beauty tip is a great, no-cost addition to daily skin care
regimens. Facial massage takes just a few extra moments a
day, but the advantages
are far-reaching; especially over time.
