Perfect Strokes For A Firmer Face
Use your moisturiser as the base of your facial massage technique. inge theron, founder of Facegym, recommends you warm up your muscles first, just like you would your body.
Work It Out
you can actually transform your face by giving the muscles in your face a workout – just like you would your body. there are 38 muscles in our face that can be sculpted and shaped simply by stimulating and training your muscles into action.
Facial massage is amazing for this, toning muscles, leaving you with a natural lift and contour. take the time to really work out your facial muscles and see the benefits almost instantly.
How To Do It?
1 Start by sweeping your moisturiser or oil across your chest and up your neck using one palm after the other. This will help to lift and smooth out the lines on your neck.
2 Lightly hold your jaw between your thumbs and forefinger and apply pressure along the jaw line up to ears. This will help to drain lymph fluid from the lymph nodes and tone the jaw line.
3 Sweep palms across your cheeks from the sides of the nose out towards the ears.
4 Concentrating on one cheek at a time, place your index and middle fingers flat on the cheek and sweep upwards, lifting and flicking the cheek muscle. Alternate your hands – this will help lift jowls and tone your jawline.
5 Use your middle and index fingers to apply pressure and drain from centre of the forehead to the temples.
6 Finish by using the whole of your hands alternately to sweep over the forehead from the brows to the hairline. This helps to relax and smooth out the wrinkles on your forehead.
