‘Massage makes you an active partner with your skin,’ says Su-Man. ‘It allows the blood and energy to flow to your face, giving it a lifted and brightened appearance.’
Sounds good to us! But before you scroll down for Su-Man’s video, check out her 4 top self-massage tips first:
1. ALWAYS WORK AGAINST THE EXPRESSION LINES
You want to lift dull skin, so move hands in the opposite direction of any wrinkles and lines. For example, on the forehead and bridge of your nose wrinkles appear faster, so use up and down motions here. You would never iron a sheet along the creases but across them: it’s the same for fine lines and wrinkles!
2. USE THE APPROPRIATE TECHNIQUE FOR EACH PART OF THE FACE
The video will show you what motions are best for the different areas of your face, but some tips to remember are to use circular motions on the fleshy part of the cheek and a zigzag motion around the eye and lip area. This will effectively encourage the blood supply and improve circulation – giving you that glow!
3. APPLY PRESSURE POINTS TO RELEASE TENSION
Using pressure points on the indentation areas will not only release tension and stagnated energy but it will lift and firm the skin, too. The key areas to work on are the eye sockets, under the cheekbones, the temples and the chin area.
4. USE THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
I tend to do the final step of my massage with my Purifying Cleansing Gel Oil, as it helps to warm up my facial muscles before further massage. But you can do this with any good oil or moisturiser, too! Just make sure you use products that won’t dry or pull the skin.
