Want a slim, glowing face without having to break the bank? Try this.
All you need are your hands and a quality skin cream moisturizer. Combine these two and voila, you have all the things you need to give yourself a face-slimming facial massage!
Here's the simple, step-by-step process of the massage:
Step 1: Wash your hands before massaging your face to make sure that they're free from dirt and bacteria.
Step 2: Lightly tap your fingers all over your face (like you're playing the piano, but on your face). It warms up and relaxes your facial muscles before you begin the massage.
Step 3: Grab the moisturizer and rub some of the cream between your hands to warm it up. Gently rub your fingers in a zig zag motion on your forehead. You can do the motion horizontally or vertically. This helps tighten frown lines and release tense muscles on your forehead.
Step 4: Using two fingers, gently massage your temples in circular motions.
Step 5: Massage your eyebrow muscles by pinching them between your fingers a few times.
Step 6: Massage in circular motions on the muscles below and behind your ears.
Step 7: Gently massage your fingers below your eyes in a U-shape motion. You can also just tap lightly if you prefer to be even more gentle on your under-eye skin.
Step 8: Use the tips of your fingers and start from the center of your cheeks and push up to the top of your cheekbones. Always do it in an upward motion, never downward. This will increase blood flow in your cheeks and give you a naturally refreshed and flushed look.
Step 9: Pinch your nose from the tip all the way up to the center of your forehead. Go up and down several times.
Step 10: Using the tips of your fingers, start from underneath your chin and push along the bottom of your jaw and then down the side of the front of your neck. Do this for both sides.
If you start to feel like your skin is getting tugged and dragged, apply more moisturizer to help your fingers slide across your skin more easily.
By making this easy facial massage a part of your daily routine, you not only benefit from a simple massage that feels good and is good for your skin, you'll also be gradually shaping your face into a slimmer and more slender shape!
