Face lifting massage is both an art and a science. Many cultures have been using it for thousands of years for beauty and health. And as with art, no two massages are the same. The beauty of this is that you don’t have to worry if you don’t perform exactly the same stuff twice. Just follow the basics, and you’ll thrive.
I have studied a wide variety of techniques, which I now combine in my YouTube channel and social media. But beyond that, what I find the key here, is that anyone can learn it and benefit from younger-looking skin. It’s all about practice.
Just like your body, the face is made up of muscles. We only need to work on them in the appropriate way. Consistency is the key. A monthly gym visit won’t build a fit body. Also, if you want to maximise your potential, you’ll probably require a personal trainer.
That being said, I can’t be happier to introduce you to your “at-home massage coach”: MY NEW BOOK!! This must-have guide will help you rejuvenate your skin and take your skincare routine to the max with just a few minutes work every day!
If you have kids, you likely know Play-Doh very well! It is a wheat-based Plasticine for kids that dries when exposed to air for a while. In particular if the bottle is not closed correctly.
One morning, my daughter came to me with her favourite colour cracked, unable to play with it. I googled what to do and found some websites saying just to add a bit of water. So I did. But just adding water had no effect. It is actually when you knead the Play-Doh with water that you achieve a good texture. It’s all about the massage, not the water you add. Kneading the modelling clay reminded me of massaging the body, and something snapped in my brain.
Like Play-Doh, the more you massage your face, the better the texture. I usually include massage in my treatments and encourage at-home facial massage for almost everyone. Avoid it if you have active acne, angry rosacea, or sunburn. Anyone else, please just try it for 5 minutes every day for four weeks.
Spoiler: Like the dried Play-Doh, your skin will be rehydrated and plumped. But over time, it will also become firmer.
Everybody knows that working out the body is important, but how many do the same for the face? Face lifting massage should be like going to the gym: almost a “must” to keep the facial structure in shape.
But doing it at home has some added benefits:
Visit my post about anti ageing face lifting face massage to learn more about the techniques to use when carrying this out yourself.
Relieving stress and massaging your muscles makes them smoother and more elastic. As a result, the facial skin lifts, fine lines fade, the complexion glows, and the face regains its youthful appearance.
We live in a never stopping train, where “I don’t have time” is far too common to hear. Time has become a very precious treasure.
There’s no doubt that having a professional face lifting massage is wonderful. But most people don’t, or can’t, have it on a regular basis. That’s why having at home routine can make a huge difference to your skin.
If you can find 5-10 minutes in your 24-hours you definitely need this book. This is where you’ll find everything you need to know about facial massage including;
My three wishes are for you to be happier, healthier, and younger. However, there are no genies here, just a plan in a book. There is no need to rub a lamp; just click here and have it delivered to your home.
There are 42 facial muscles. But don’t worry, you don’t need to work individually on each of them. However, it’s important to know because they impact our facial expressions.
Do you have any idea how many different facial expressions you can pull off? You might guess ten or twenty. According to a new Glasgow University study, human faces can only make four.
For a long time, experts believed that there were six types of expressions: happiness, fear, sadness, anger, disgust, and surprise. They now know that some facial “signals” are shared and should be combined. Fear and disgust, for example, both share a wrinkled nose. Fear and surprise both cause widened eyes.
The goal of a face lifting massage is to tone facial muscles and relax our four facial expressions. To do so, you must repeat the moves several times. But where? This is a small list with the main muscles to focus on:
In the image below, you can find these muscles and movement direction.
I hope you enjoy face lifting massage as much as I do.
