Everyone is always looking for the next quick fix or solution to their skin woes, and anti-aging treatments are no different.
From severe surgical solutions through to natural skincare remedies, the market is saturated with miracle cures to make you look 10 years younger – but do any of them actually work?
The latest trend to hit the anti-aging market is facial massaging, with many skincare specialists claiming exercising the face can have a positive impact on reducing fine lines and wrinkles
Facial massage is a growing trend, with many brands now promoting massage devices such as jade rollers so you can pamper your skin at home. A facial massage is a great way to relax and relieve tension from the facial muscles.
Depending on your skin type and concerns, a massage can have a huge range of benefits. Most often used in facials, massage techniques have been used to combat a range of skin issues and as a relaxation technique.
There are a range of facial massage types too, such as reflexology, shiatsu, remedial and lymphatic – all of which have different benefits for the skin.
Despite many claims, facial massage isn’t a miracle cure for aging skin. In fact, it has been suggested by some skin specialists that regularly massaging the skin and manipulating the facial muscles can instead increase signs of aging.
Too much movement can cause skin to become loose and therefore have the opposite affect on the skin’s appearance. However, it does depend how often the face is massaged as to whether this may be a successful way of preventing aging.
Muscles do need to be worked to remain firm however, is facial massaging the best answer for anti-aging treatments?
