- I hope it goes without saying that you will need clean hands and your face should be freshly cleansed too. Find somewhere warm, quiet and not too bright, in the bath or lying on your bed is ideal. Spend as little or as long as you like on each stage.
- Gently warm a little (just a few drops) of your favourite facial oil in the palm of your hands, Myroo’s Starflower & Orange Blossom Facial Serum is ideal.
- Start at the bottom of your neck gently pressing and massaging up towards your chin. Concentrate on any areas that feel tight or tense. A few shoulder rolls are nice at this stage too.
- Then moving your head gently from side to side massage and press along your jaw line. If it feels nice to stretch your jaw then do that at the same time by opening and closing your mouth.
- Next, using your ring finger, gently massage down the bridge and sides of the nose and across the cheeks and cheekbones. Make sure you are not dragging your skin.
- Using your index fingers move on to rubbing your temples, gently easing any tension. Then move across your eyebrows and massage the forehead in small circles.
- Finally if your eyes aren’t already closed, let them shut and gently press the eyelids. Rest there for a little while, enjoying the relaxation.
Facial massage is wonderful for your skin and is also a lovely relaxing treat. If you find it hard to find time to look after yourself then facial massage can be a great place to start. It only takes a few minutes but feels indulgent and delivers results. Perfect! I really enjoy a facial massage and try to find time once a week. Done properly facial massage can help reduce puffiness, improve skin tone and increase cell regeneration. Like all massage it can also benefit your state of mind.Blog
