Adding yet another phase to your growing list of skincare sounds like another unnecessary step, but hear us out.

Many of us encounter stress, tension, or anxiety to a certain degree everyday, and this can lead to strain and tension in our face. This can affect not just our overall complexion, but also wider issues in our body.

Giving yourself a quick facial massage only takes a few minutes and the benefits are numerous: from reducing wrinkles and improving skin glow, to improving blood circulation, energy, and also relaxation and stress relief.

Pressure-point facial massage improves circulation in the face, enhancing skin renewal while relieving tension in the face.

Many of the movements work along the lymphatic points of the face as well, pushing out stagnant fluids that often cause puffiness, dull, and dry skin, allowing for a more radiant and youthful complexion.

While you can do facial massage at any time of the day and still reap the benefits, we recommend doing them just before bed so you can enjoy all the soothing benefits and have a better night’s rest.

We understand it can be a bit daunting trying to find the best points for your skin. So here are some of our favourites for tackling those stubborn skin problems!
