Benefits thought to come from doing a daily face massage…

  • Time efficient - During the first month you may wish to spend a little more time doing the massage to see results. But after that, it can be just 3-4 extra minutes while applying your daily moisturizer.
  • Increases Circulation- The gentle massaging action stimulates the skin and increases blood flow. This brings vital nutrients to feed the skin and keep it healthy.
  • Stimulates natural oils - Yes, this is a good thing! Our skin produces it’s own oil for good reason. It softens and protects our largest organ (the skin) and gives a youthful glow.
  • Relaxes Muscles and Decreases the Appearance of Wrinkles – This can delay the formation of wrinkles and may reduce the appearance of existing ones.
  • Reduces Puffiness – By stimulating circulation the facial massage can help to drain excess fluid from the skin. Very gentle tapping is usually recommended for puffy eyes.
  • Opens and cleans pores – The massaging action induces heat which temporarily enlarges pores. This can help excrete toxins and excess oils that were trapped in the skin.
  • More “Bang for Your Buck” - By increasing circulation and the overall health of skin, it will become more readily able to absorb and use the organic and natural skin care treatments you are using. Making them that much more effective.
