Have you ever wondered why your face is glowing after a facial? It’s not just the face oils that do the work, it is a massaging technique that lifts and awakens your skin.

Here are four ways to start now!
If the word oil throws you off, we get it. Maybe it’s because the idea of putting oil on, say, your acne-prone face seems insane (it isn’t), or maybe your skin is so sensitive you think you can\’t use an oil (you can), or maybe you just think the whole concept of face oils is too confusing for your low-maintenance needs (it definitely is not).
Gua Sha is known as a Chinese medical technique that benefits your face in giving life back to your skin. When practised regularly and done correctly, it promotes better circulation, stronger facial muscles, reduces puffiness, lessens the appearance of fine lines, improves skin texture and elasticity. It is highly recommended that you try Gua Sha on a day to day bases as it will help the lymph flow by starting on your neck and gently working your way up thus releasing any motionless energy that is accumulated with toxins embedded in the skin. This heavenly method will eventually improve other conditions such as acne, pigmentation, and rosacea. It is never too late to start, go get your Gua Sha on!

Do you know how beauty gurus tell you to ice your face as a massaging method? It is one of the greatest methods for glowing skin. Besides having a cooling and soothing feeling on the skin, this also helps in minimising your pores and reduces the excess oil that’s on the face where ice is known to improve blood circulation. All you have to do is rub the ice across the forehead, on the apples of your cheeks, under the chin and on your neck. The cold constricts the blood vessels and tightens your face up. Who does not want a good tightening! It is recommended not to leave the ice on your face for too long as the capillaries of the skin can break. Make sure to keep splashing room temperature water on your face to ease the process.
