Massage is greatly advised for any part of the body as it helps relieve stress. Known for its effectiveness as a beauty treatment, facial massage also has an abundance of other health benefits.
Here are the benefits of facial massage
1. Natural facelift
Facial massages are a natural beauty treatment. Regular sessions will work to tighten and lift your facial muscles, helping to prevent sagging and giving you a more youthful glow. Facial massage stimulates the production of collagen and blood in the skin.
2. Stress relief and mood booster
Stress and anxiety will often cause our facial muscles to tense and over time this will not only have a detrimental effect on our mood and appearance but can cause facial aches and pains. The face is filled with different pressure points and just by stimulating these through soft strokes, tension can be relieved and your mood instantly lifted.
3. Massage enhances product absorption
Massage will help your skin reap the benefits of any serum you apply pre-massage and any moisturizer you apply during the massage.
4. Massage improves facial muscle tone
Because it stimulates the facial muscles, a massage is like a mini-workout for your face.
5. Relieves headaches
Migraines and tension headaches can all be relieved through facial massage therapy. By stimulating pressure points on the face, tension and stress can be worked out helping to ease symptoms. Taking time out to have a massage will also decrease the frequency of headaches as stress is often a contributing factor.
6. Prevents wrinkles
As we get older wrinkles are unavoidable but frequent tension and involuntary tightening in the face caused by daily stress can advance their development. Facial massages will help relax these tight and drawn muscles.
