Facial massage is a great way to improve the circulation of your skin. It has the added bonus of helping lift and firm the skin, reducing puffiness and wrinkles and reducing stress. What’s not to love?
Why not treat yourself to a facial massage every few days? You don’t have to go to a salon for the service either. If you don’t have willing hands at home you can do it yourself!
Natalie Sellars of Kindred Toxin Free Facials shares her reasons why you should. The expert in natural skincare and skin therapy has always included facial massage in her rituals in her studio. “It is such a relatively easy way to improve the overall texture and tone of facial skin and keep it glowing – which is our ultimate goal,” Natalie Sellars said.
A good facial massage should stimulate the lymphatic system and in turn stimulates the natural healing process of our skin, Natalia explains. A gentle facial massage helps to detoxify your skin, removing any fluid build up and also promotes turnover of new cells which results in a healthier and more youthful complexion. “We use gua sha wands in the studio and encourage clients to use them at home.”
