The Power of a Good Face Massage
Most conventional facials and even the care you give your skin at home only address the epidermis, the top layer of skin that is only 0.1mm thick. 0.1mm is the same thickness as a sheet of printer paper. The beauty industry has taught everyone for years now that skin health comes topically, and most facials in the spa industry still only focus on this top layer of skin .
But what about the other 0.3mm – 1.6mm of skin below the visible surface where real skin function actually occurs? These are the layers where tension occurs, preventing proper blood flow, reducing oxygen flow and blocking vital lymphatic flow, all of which can negatively impact the look and health of your skin.
You don’t have to have a professional facial to enjoy all the benefits of a good facial massage. This is something you can do for yourself at home. In fact, the more you practice this massage, the more you will begin to see accumulative results, which is why I recommend this massage daily.
Massage increases the circulation in the skin, bringing blood flow to the surface of the skin. This brings fresh oxygen supply and nutrients to the skin. Massage also gets the lymphatic system moving, which is the drainage system of the body. Puffiness under the eyes, congestion in the skin and inflammation can often be improved through moving your lymphatic system.
Massage, when it feels good, also relaxes the nervous system, reducing your stress hormone, cortisol. It also increases oxytocin, which further reduces cortisol and has been found to increase feelings of empathy.
All of these benefits combined can restore cellular balance in the skin and in the nervous system, resulting in a stronger immune system. Who knew facial massages are good for your immune system? It’s true!
