Does your skin look puffy, or loose, or are you just generally in need of some love for you? A facial massage could be just what you need to strengthen or firm up your skin, or to make yourself look younger. On top of the visible benefits, facial massages, just like any other massage, can serve to relax, reduce stress, or simply bring about the feelings of enjoyment from indulging yourself. Here are a few different ways for you to spoil (as in pamper, not ruin) your face.
1) Facial Masks:
There are a number of different types of facial mask treatments available. For example, there are setting masks, which include clay masks, thermal masks, fruit masks, and peel-off masks, and there are non-setting masks, which include warm oil masks and masks made of paraffin wax. Each different types of mask has different benefits, and are ideal for different types of skin; so, although some of these masks can be applied at home, you are better off at least consulting a professional to determine what type of skin you have, and which type of mask is best for your face.
“Shiatsu”, the Japanese word for “finger pressure”, is purported by its practitioners to combat a number of negative elements: including muscle pain, stress, anxiety, nausea, and even depression. What’s more, is that Shiatsu is not limited to the face alone, but massages the whole body. So, if you feel the need to give your face a little professional attention, why not kill two birds with one finger (or more) and get the rest of the body done as well? Fun fact: Shiatsu is also performed on horses.
