Everyone loves a good massage. Sore back muscles and tension in the shoulders just melt away. Your face would also love a massage. In addition to reducing pain and tension, you can get a more youthful-looking face with clearer skin in exchange for your efforts.
Your skin moisturizes itself by producing an oil called sebum. The closest thing to human sebum is jojoba oil. It permeates the skin’s pores better than any other oil, which is why it’s a common ingredient in skin and hair products.
All skin types can benefit from an jojoba oil massage. Dry skin gets moisturized. Oily skin gets better balanced oil production. Sensitive skin calms down. The anti-aging benefits are there as well. Massage tones muscles. An jojoba oil massage is like a little facelift.
Are you ready to enjoy an invigorating jojoba oil facial massage? Here’s how:
1.Wash your hands. Wash your face and pat dry. If you have longer hair, pull it back so it’s not in the way of your face.
2. Put a tiny bit of jojoba oil into a little bowl or plate. Don’t apply your fingers right to the bottle – you don’t want to contaminate the contents. (If you don’t have jojoba oil, use olive oil. It’s fantastic as well – full of essential fatty acids.)
3. Massage slowly, with very little pressure, in an upward motion. Massage from underneath the jawline all the way up to the hairline, in short, slow strokes.
4. After 10 minutes, gently wash your face and pat dry. Et voila! Your skin and your facial muscles will thank you.
Jojoba oil is inexpensive and easy to find in good quality health food stores. Keep your jojoba oil in the fridge between uses to preserve its shelf life.
