Massaging your face on a regular basis can help to get the blood moving thereby improving circulation and reducing facial tension. Nichola Joss, Decléor skincare ambassador, is a huge advocate of facial massage, stating as one of her golden skincare rules:
“Teach yourself quick and effective facial massage techniques and practice them daily to naturally enhance your contours and give your skin a glow.”
Combine facial massage with one of our Hero products: Prolagene Lift Contouring Lift Firm Mask, an anti-ageing 1-minute flash mask for firmer, more radiant skin.
After cleansing, apply the Prolagene Lift Contouring Lift Firm Mask with our simple, four-step massage routine:
First, focus on the jawline. With your hands either side of the chin, use your thumb and index finger to sculpt and contour. Place your thumb just under the jawline and the index finger just on top of the jawline. The pressure between your thumb and your index finger should be firm. Push them towards each other whilst gliding outwards. As you sweep towards the ears, cover all of the muscles. You should do this for 10 seconds.
Next, with your hands flat, work on the right cheek first. Using firm pressure, start at the chin and lift upwards, gliding towards the temple. As the palm of your hand sweeps up, tuck under the cheekbone to get the perfect lift. Your hands should follow each other alternately, for 10 seconds.
Then, with your hands still flat and one hand on each cheek, press into the skin. Hold firm for one second, then release. Make sure to lift the face upwards as you press into the skin. Repeat this movement for 10 seconds.
Finaly, place your fingertips on your forehead, in line with your nose. Applying firm pressure to the skin, smooth out wrinkles by pressing into the skin. Maintaining this pressure, glide out towards the temples and continue for 20 seconds. Fiona Brackenbury, Decléor Education Director says “It’s like you’re trying to iron out the wrinkles”!
So, what are you waiting for? Build this simple 1-minute facial massage into your skincare routine for firmer and more radiant skin.
