Massage is a therapeutic technique that has been around for thousands of years. It helps heal and relax people without the need for medication and supplements. Just as a shoulder or back massage helps you feel more rejuvenated, a facial massage can do the same. Not only that, but a facial massage can also offer other benefits as well.
Pretty much everyone deals with anxiety, stress and tension of some sort every day. That can cause the muscles in your face to feel tense and cause pains and aches. Your face has many pressure points that, when stimulated, can relieve muscle tension and stress build up.
A facial massage can relieve headaches of all sorts from tension to cluster to migraines. By applying gentle pressure to specific points on your face, you can alleviate the symptoms from headaches and reduce the frequency of them.
External factors like smoking, air pollution and travelling can take its toll on our skin. Lack of sleep and forgetting to take your makeup off at the end of the day can also inhibit circulation in the skin on your face. Your skin may start to look dull and puffy as a result. Facial massages can help bring life back to your skin by stimulating your lymph nodes. It flushes out built up fluids in your skin and increases blood flow, which adds oxygen and nutrients back to your skin.
You can prevent acne and other skin conditions like rosacea from worsening with a facial massage. Since they help increase blood flow to your skin, facial massages can speed up the healing process of breakouts and get rid of toxins that cause them in the first place.
Wrinkles form over time from the frequent tightening of facial muscles, which is a natural response to stress. Since facial massages can reduce the amount of tension you feel, they can help minimize the wrinkles that form on your face. Combining facial massages with a hydrating moisturizer can improve the chances of your skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free.
If you frequently experience sinus issues like a stuffy nose, a facial massage may be the remedy for you. Gently rubbing your face can help break down mucus buildup. The warm from your hands can stimulate drainage from your nasal airways. It can be especially helpful during allergy season when you are stuffed up the most.
Banish Under-Eye Bags
Most people have to deal with dark circles or bags under their eyes at some point in their lives. It could be the cause of sleep deprivation, ageing or other factors. Having bags under your eyes can make you feel more self-conscious about your appearance. Dark circles are often the result of water retention around your eyes. A facial massage can help release excess fluid under your eyes and get rid of your dark circles and puffiness.
