Last month I came across an article about the benefits of face massages and I had a small light bulb moment!
We all agree that body massages, from a gentle rub to deep-tissue massaging, are beneficial for our body as they soothe and stimulate our muscles and joints but what about our face? We rub our skin with moisturizers and oils but never give our face muscles an actual massage and it’s a shame because our face would benefit from it as much as our body!
So for the past month I’ve been experiencing ‘face massage’ every evening as part of my beauty routine and here’s what happened:
- The first time:
I went through my usual cleansing routine then applied CAUDALIE VINE[ACTIV] OVERNIGHT DETOX OIL on my face and used three fingers on each hands to move across my face in small circular movements, making sure to apply a firm yet painless pressure to feel my muscles and move them. I began with my checkbones, moved up to my forefront then down my nose and jawline.
I found the all experience extremely relaxing and enjoyable, especially when I massaged parts of my face I usually don’t focus on too much like the part in between my eyes. Even if the massage lasted less than five minutes, I enjoyed taking the time to give myself some love and self-care.
The day after I didn’t notice any specific change.
- Two weeks in:
I keep on massaging my face for about five minutes every evening as I find the routine to be very soothing and enjoyable. However, I can’t notice any visible results and sometimes doubt I will see any.
- Four weeks in:
After a month of daily facial massages, I can finally notice a difference. It’s not huge nor spectacular but there is something! I’m not even sure what it is but there is a nice plumpness to my skin that is definitely new as well as a brighter skin tone. Maybe it’s not even the massage but the ‘me-time’ I indulge in every day that has this effect on my skin but whatever it is I love it and will definitely keep on face massaging!
I love it so much I’ve asked my Twinnie to try it and give us her feedback on this blog in a month time so stay tune!
I’d also love to hear about your experience so do try and let us know!
