All face-lifting and massage methods have one thing in common: they rely on specific, repetitive movements to stimulate blood flow, remove toxins and release tension. Improved muscle tone supports the skin better, lifting and softening your facial contours, smoothing lines and wrinkles and boosting the overall health of your skin. Not to mention calming the mind.
I have personally trained in many methods over the years and combine them to create unique facials in clinic and at home.
There are the physical benefits of the massage, then there is also the supporting role of the oil or product you choose to massage with. I love a face oil, and natural and plant-based ones tend to be my favourite. Something not too heavy in aromatherapy is ideal, and something with a great medium texture – not too light and not too thick. FLORENA® Fermented Skincare have two facial oils, both of which are among my current favourites to use for at-home face massage:
FLORENA® Fermented Skincare Illuminating Facial Oil is enriched with fermented Pink Helichrysum and fermented Safflower Oil. The silky formula is great for restoring radiance and vitality to dull, tired skin.
FLORENA® Fermented Skincare Regenerating Facial Oil contains fermented White Helichrysum and fermented Argan Safflower Oil. It’s a powerful formula which will help tired and dull skin to rehydrate and rejuvenate leaving it nourished, soft and supple.
HOW TO do an at home face lifting massage
TO start, cleanse your face and pat the skin dry. FLORENA® Fermented Skincare also have a really lovely Milky Cleanser, which contains fermented Jasmin and fermented Angelica Oil, or if you’re looking for something 100% natural, its Cleansing Bar is also great for leaving your skin soft and refreshed.
Using ½ a teaspoon of oil (if you are using one of the FLORENA® Fermented Skincare oils, use half a pipette of oil. Warm in the palms of your hands and apply to the face in a prayer movement, gliding across the face, neck and décolleté.
After your face massage you might choose to leave the oil on, especially if you have normal to dry skin, or you might apply your moisturiser over the top. FLORENA® Fermented Skincare have moisturisers for both hydration and anti-ageing, each in a day and a night cream. My personal favourite is the FLORENA® Fermented Skincare 24H Hydrating Day Cream.
Alternatively, if you’re prone to slightly oilier skin or just prefer the feel of it, wash off any excess oil with a gentle cleanser, then apply your normal skincare routine.
