There comes a point during most facial treatments where you start to feel a blissful state of relaxation that you naturally doze off for a few minutes. Just like the rest of your body, facial muscles require exercise to keep you looking younger, let’s go over the importance of a facial massage and why it’s an important step of a facial, or something you may want to look into doing sometimes for yourself!
Just like how you would get a back or shoulder massage, your face muscles require the same. A facial massage increases blood and oxygen flow to the face, which helps to reduce puffiness, and creates a brighter skin tone. A bit of skin manipulation in the morning can really make a difference. Facial massage also stimulates collagen production which prevents the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. View
When the muscles on your face tense up, they are more likely to harbour wrinkles, which is why it is helpful to get it massaged out regularly, it is a natural anti-aging skincare in itself. The length of a facial massage can sometimes also depend on your skin type, for example someone more oily and acne prone should be right about under 10 minutes, someone with more dry skin up to 20minutes.
Better Product Absorption
After a good facial massage anything you put on top of your skin will absorb that much better. Your cheeks will get pink which is a good sign, indicating that there is an oxygen and good circulation flowing through the skin. Your skin will be more receptive, put on a good serum, moisturizer and enjoy the amazing benefits.
