If you feel like you've tried everything to improve your skin to no avail, you might want to rethink your approach. It could all be lying in the comfort of your own home or literally in the palm of your hands. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. When it comes to a healthier, more youthful-looking complexion, you don't always have to dole out the big bucks. All you have to do is dedicate a little bit of your own time each night and give yourself a facial massage. These small but powerful movements can help de-puff your skin by stimulating blood circulation. Wanna give it a whirl? All you need is your favorite face oil, serum or moisturizer to get you going.
To get started, you'll need a clean canvas. Cleanse your face of any makeup or dirt. This will open up your pores and allow you to get the most out of your facial massage and any product that you choose to use throughout it.
The next step involves selecting the product you'll want to lubricate your skin with throughout your massage. Most people prefer their favorite face oil or lightweight moisturizer. Or maybe you'd rather target your peepers, so your favorite eye cream would work just as well, too. It's entirely up to you.
With a dime-sized amount of product, start massaging in upward circular movements toward your forehead from the brow bone. Then move to the under-eye area, massaging gently around the orbital bone to get rid of puffiness. Proceed to your jawline to help contour, and then finally move down to your neck to really assist that lymphatic drainage.
