Step by step: Facial massage at home

Beauty / June 05, 2020

In my last story, I talked about the benefits of facial massage. Now let’s get into how you should do it with the stuff you have at home.

Start with your hands thoroughly. It’s ideal to wash your hands in warm water and antibacterial soap for this. Make sure it’s still gentle and hydrating as you don’t want rough hands. Something like Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Wash. 

Tie back your hair or make sure you keep it away from your face with a headband. I usually like the ones made of silk with a bit of a grip so it doesn’t too tight on your head. 

Wash your face as you would. It’s your choice to apply first to your other products such as toner and moisturizer. Ideally, it’s easier to massage your face with a facial oil. Choose an oil that specific to what you want to achieve. 

The Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil uses anti-oxidants to give your skin that youthful look. It promises to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, redness, and blotchiness. You also will notice an improvement skin’s elastic feel. It is naturally anti-microbial and appropriate for all skin.

The Indie Lee Squalene Facial Oil is made from olive-derived squalene and is friendly to all skin types. You will reach for this if you one if you want something that leaves the complexion soft and nourished. 

For a truly indulgent experience, you can go for the Rodin  Luxury Face Oil – Geranium & Orange Blossom. This quenches the skin with  11 natural essential oils along with antioxidants. It nourishes dry, dull skin that you might have due to long nights.  This melts into the skin and has a subtle zesty scent to enhance that spa feeling. 

As for the motions, a good rule is to do what feels go to your and to use motions that make you feel better. If you want to get technical with it, the power of the Internet is at your fingertips. It’s crazy how they’re are many YouTubes from top skin experts and beauty brands that will help you out when it comes to massaging your face. 

Have fun finding the one for you!
