A truly effective skincare regime is built around great products, but the way in which they’re applied can also make a huge difference to the tone and vitality of your skin.
These simple facial massage techniques strengthen and stimulate the muscles beneath the skin’s surface for a firmer, plumper complexion.
If you’re short on time follow our Express routine. Otherwise, combining our Express and Extended routine will help to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
Express: Using all five finger pads press firmly against your cheeks and make five slow circles towards your nose. Then reverse, and make five slow circles towards your ears.
Extended: Taking one cheek at a time, use the middle three fingers to stroke from the corner of your mouth to your temple. As one hand reaches the temple, start the next stroke with your other hand for fluidity. Repeat for 30 seconds.
Express: Using your finger pads, make five slow clockwise circles on the forehead to release muscle tension. Then repeat in an anti-clockwise direction.
Extended: Create a V-shape with the index and middle finger of both hands, then slide them in and out of each other as you travel across the forehead. Repeat for 30 seconds.
Express: Flatten your hands like a paddle, and stroke form the bottom of the neck up to the jaw. Start on the left side of the neck and move round to the right.
Extended: Using the top side of both hands, sweep from underneath your chin to your jawbone. Start on the left side of the neck and move round to the right side.
