6 Benefits Of Regular Facial Massages
Regular facial massages are something we should all prioritize and invest in. Roll your face and relax with some of our favorite massages!
A lot of people don’t really realize how important it is to take care of your skin. Specifically, the skin on your face. Obviously, we use skin care products, serums, and masks, but what about what is underneath the surface?
We should be focusing on ways we can improve what’s underneath to improve what’s on top. Here are some benefits of regular facial massages you need to know.
Anti Aging & Wrinkle Prevention/Slowing
One of the main benefits of facial massages is its ability to improve the overall appearance of the skin. In many pieces of research, massaging facial skin twice a day for one minute caused higher rates of expression in dermal proteins, which has an anti-aging effect on the skin.
Sinus Pressure Relief
You can actually use massage to relieve sinus pressure, discomfort, and congestion. Sinus massage may also help promote the drainage of mucus, alleviate headaches, and boost circulation.
Helps control Acne
Massaging the skin may actually help promote circulation to your face while reducing the appearance of acne.
People who have temporomandibular joint conditions seem to always experience some discomfort in their jaw or even the entire face. This can cause headaches, lockjaw, or earaches. Trigger point massage may help alleviate tight, inflamed, or painful jaw muscles.
Skin Blood Flow
Using a facial massage roller has a positive effect on skin blood flow, which may help improve the appearance of skin. There are researches showing that doing a five-minute massage with a roller can increase blood flow to the area for at least ten minutes after the massage. After five weeks, the blood flow response to heat was greatly improved.
Manage Scar Tissue
If you have scars on your face that are currently in the healing process, massaging them can be immensely beneficial. Massaging the scar tissue and surrounding areas, actually helps increase the blood flow, allowing to loosen up tissue and flatten bumps.
Some of our favorite facial massages are lymphatic drainage, reflexology, shiatsu, acupressure, and sinus. Trying out different massages for your face can help you figure out which one is the best for you. Not everyone is the same, and not everyone will enjoy the same types of massages. Buy yourself a nice jade roller and start with something simple like that to get started on your new journey to having healthy, plump skin all year round.
