Facial Massage: The Natural Facelift For Ageing Skin
1 July 2019

Not all forms of anti-ageing remedies come in expensive solutions or botox. Facial massages are not only a great soothing escape, but it’s also a secret fountain of youth which gives you a healthy, glowing complexion!
1. Rubs your wrinkles away
Do you know that each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of your skin? Repeated facial movements and expressions, such as smiling or frowning, leads to an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. But of course, we’re not suggesting you keep a poker face on 24/7. A gentle and routine face massage can actually help to relax the drawn muscles and increase skin elasticity, decreasing the lines formed.
2. Relieves your mood
Everyone loves a good massage after a long and stressful day at work. Studies have shown that there was a significant improvement in both mood and anxiety levels after a facial massage. If you’re feeling down and stressed out, perhaps what you need is a relaxing massage to get in a better mood. Add in aromatic oils for an enhanced effect.
3. Increases blood flow
According to Elle Canada, a facial massage can be an alternative way to stimulate circulation and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Blood flow helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to your face, which is vital for healthy skin.
For the best results, carry out your facial massage along with a hydrating serum or moisturiser to minimize lines and dryness. Massaging while you’re applying your facial products actually allows for better absorption. SANNY & JOLEEN LIFESTYLE antioxidant serum is packed with vitamins and fruit oils to combat ageing skin, perfect to complete your facial massage with.
While ageing skin is caused by various other factors as well, taking the appropriate precautions can help slow down the process. Remember to also always shield yourself from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, which is the primary factor of premature ageing. The anti-pollution SPF50 sunscreen of SANNY & JOLEEN LIFESTYLE is a broad spectrum pick that wards off the UV rays while giving your skin a hydrating radiance.
