We all desire youthful skin, but achieving it requires proper care. We wash it regularly and use various products such as day creams, night creams, and sunscreens. Some may opt for more extreme measures like laser treatments, injectables, and Botox. However, experts suggest that facial massage is an easier way to maintain youthful skin. But what is facial massage, and how can you do it? Here are some guidelines to follow.

Firstly, determine your face shape, which you can easily find online or by looking at your reflection in the mirror. Whether your face is round, square, rectangular, or heart-shaped, it will influence how you personalize your massage routine.

Facial massage has many benefits for men and women, such as helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, relieving muscle tension and reducing stress to leave you feeling more relaxed. Bonus massaging the skin improves your circulation which will bring more blood cells to the skin for a rosy glow.

Here are some simple steps that you can follow to take care of your face:

1. Apply your favorite product. I personally use all-natural castor oil. Begin by using a sweeping motion from the center of your forehead outwards, circling back to your eyebrows and hairline. Use your thumbs to apply more pressure in vertical strokes and horizontal strokes along the forehead.

2. Move on to your cheekbones, using the same sweeping motion outward. Start on the left side and then move to the right. Spend about a minute on each side.

3. Now, focus on your chin. Using the sides of each pointer finger, use the same sweeping motion from the bottom lip downward to the jawline. Then move from the center of your chin out towards your ears.

4. Don't forget your neck! The neck is very delicate, so use light, quick strokes up your neck towards your jawline. Finish up with circular movements with your fingertips, starting in the center of your décolletage.
