The Benefits of Facial Massage

We can often get hung up on the more invasive side of age management thanks to the incredible results achieved. But sometimes it's good to get back to basics and remember the things we can do at home that bring added health benefits to our skin

Regular facial massage is an underrated technique in anti-ageing regimes. Although it's great to visit a massage therapist for a regular professional massage, not all of us have the luxury of time or the finances to support this. Facial massage is one of the simplest things we can introduce to our homecare routine that can make a real difference in our quest for youthful, healthy skin.Massaging the face not only stimulates facial muscles, keeping them toned and relaxed, it also helps bring oxygenated blood to the skin cells. This additional blood flow helps to boost collagen production and give a smoother, more rested appearance. Massage is also great for lymphatic drainage and can help reduce the build up of toxins and help with issues like dark circles and puffiness.One of the questions I'm regularly asked is “which oil should I use for facial massage? although something simple like sweet almond oil will do a great job, there are some fabulous facial oils on the market that will bring even greater benefits to your home massage routine.My current favourite is Lumity Facial Oil. Packed with over 32 botanical oils and extracts, this oil has been developed to provide specific nutrients to the skin. Applied with a gentle massage technique, skin immediately feels hydrated, replenished and deeply nourished.When combined with a regular, relaxing facial massage, Lumity Oil can help reduce signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles and restore elasticity, radiance and firmness.Another Face the Future favourite is the certified organic Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+. Rosehip oil delivers intense nourishment and repair for optimal skin health and independent clinical studies have shown that it works to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.This incredible oil now comes in a limited edition 15ml size, perfect for travelling!Looking for facial massage tips or techniques?
