Face Massage Techniques For Each Facial Feature

Forehead Face Massage Techniques

Start with your fingertips in the center of your forehead. Pressing firmly, gently glide your fingertips out to the side, then stop. Start again with your fingertips at the center of your forehead.

You can also start with your fingertips at the bottom of your forehead and glide them upwards towards your hairline. Do not move your fingertips downwards. When you reach your hairline, stop and begin again from the bottom of your forehead.

These face massage technique should be repeated at least three times and will help to smooth out your forehead and prevent wrinkles. The upward stroke is an excellent face massage technique if you have a lot of lines on your forehead.

Using a firm touch, start with your fingertips at the top of your cheeks near your nose. Glide your fingers down and over to the side, then stop. Start again at the top of your cheeks, close to your nose.

Always move your fingertips down and out to smooth your skin.

Jawbone Face Massage Technique

**Be sure to lubricate your skin first.

Start towards the chin and work your way up your jawbone making small, circular motions. When you get to the top, stop and start again near your chin.

An alternative technique is to gently rub the sides of your neck, working your way up from under your chin to beneath your ears. Use the same upward, circular motion.

These face massage techniques will help to relax your jaw muscles. They can also help relieve tension and strain created by teeth clenching and grinding.

You can also press firmly but gently the three pressure points under your eyes. There is one on your inner eye on the bony spot, one in the middle beneath your eye on the bone, and a third near the outer corner of your eyes.

Face Massage Tips

  • Lubricate you skin (This may sound redundant, but it is crucial)
  • Invest in natural, high-quality oils
  • While you can perform these face massage techniques at any time, the best time is before bed. This will help relieve the stress and tension you have accumulated throughout a long, hard day at work.
  • Before performing these face massage techniques, you should remove all of your makeup and cleanse your face. If you prefer, you can exfoliate your skin as well to remove all toxins, open your pores, and allow the oils to absorb into your skin easier.

As long as you use a good quality oil, there is no need to wash the oil off your face. By the time you are done massaging your face, the oil should be mostly absorbed into your skin.
