What are the Benefits of Face Massage and Why You Should Be Doing it
Many skincare experts have been promoting the benefits of facial massage and why it should be incorporated into your everyday skincare routine. Massaging the face not only helps relieve stress and boots circulation but it also enhances skin brightness and gives your skin an instant lift.
Read on to discover the best products for face massages and how to use them.
1. Gua Sha
Gua Sha became very popular during the last year. Originated from traditional Chinese medicine practices, Gua Sha actually stands for 'scraping' (Gua) and 'sand' (Sha) and in just 10 mins you could see and feel a difference in your face. It brightens, lifts, and sculpts your face by softening the tension in your face and helping blood circulation.

All you need to do to get the desired outcome is to massage your face and neck, always in an upward motion, following the steps in the image below. However, be sure to cleanse your face before starting and repeat the motions at least 3 times.
We recommend face massaging every morning as it will give your complexion an instant glow.

2. Cryo De-puffing Tool
Today, many people also tend to wake up with puffy eyes and black under-eye mainly due to their busy schedules and excessive screen time. Therefore, de-puffing products are best to reduce under-eye inflammation and soothe the skin. For an ultimate result, put your de-puffer in the freezer overnight, and in the morning massage the inflamed areas. Make sure to apply your favorite serum before massaging.

3. Foreo Luna Cleanser Massage
You must have heard this a lot but it is necessary to repeat it: for healthier skin, cleansing is the most important. What if I told you, you can cleanse your skin and sculpt it at the same time. The vibration of the Foreo Luna silicon brush massages your face while removing all the dirt. The Luna cleanser promises to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the long run.
This product is highly recommended to use every morning before applying any makeup and at night before going to sleep.

4. Anti-aging Face Massager
NuFace is another product we recommend for anti-aging and face lifting. Giving your face a full workout, NuFace stimulated blood flow, tones, lifts, and contours your face and neck. By using it for five mins every day, you will see a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. As we mentioned before, always undergo upward motions.
